What Atari ST exclusives were you jealous of?

Come on, there must have been a few games on the Atari ST where you thought "I wish I could play that". I was always impressed by Sun Dog and Super Sprint. There must be others that you were jealous of.

Star Trek The Rebel Universe! The ST version had digitised effects compared to the C64 version.

If it could be ported this would be great to play on the Amiga.

Until this thread, I wasn't even aware that there were (worthy) Atari ST exclusives

Then again my existence was kept blissfully unaware of the existence of the machine other than the jokes I read in the Boggit section of Amiga Action. I've never ever seen such a machine in shops even in my part of the world.

Didnt get my Amiga until late 1991 so the ST games i would have been jealous of i.e No Second Prize and Vroom were about to get Amiga ports, so nothing after these came out.

None. ST didn't exist in my world. It was a dirty word, the ultimate insult.

St was nonexistent in Turkey in 1990. I don't know whether Atari was ever popular before that but I have some old Turkish TV ads about Atari.

The dad complains about his kid studying too much and tells him to play games instead. LOL

There is also this one:

Thanks for all the feedback so far. I'm fully aware the ST gets very little mention in the mag, so wanted to balance the scales so to speak.

I was not jealous of any atari st game. My first computer was Commodore 128 and next one was A1200. When I have A1200 I realize that Commodore/Spectrum/Atari was 8bit machines and A1200 is next generation. After reading some magazines I learn that there is Atari ST that try to be amiga, bit more power but weaker custom chips so games look bit worse. I try to learn and discover ST some time ago, but I do not find any ST exclusive games that would made me ST fan, maybe Arctics Moves.

I am not sure there was any for me, i guess that was down to the fact this stuff was not covered in the media like it is these days.. (exclusive games)

I always liked the look of sundog. I'd certainly give it another play if it was ported to the Amiga

Platform game Fluffies http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=6302 High quality graphics and sampled sounds but I can not finish even first screen. Advice on atarilegend was very helpful but potions are still mystery to me. There is no video on youtube.
