The 3D games are often unfairly overlooked just because they can't be made to run fast enough on these old machines.

A few good ones are Midwinter II, Castle Master II and The Sentinel. Guardian deserves a mention too even if it requires an A1200.

F1GP - sure the frame rate wan't amazing, but a fully featured F1 Sim on four floppy disks, running on a 1Mb A500 - pretty impressive.

Also, I've no idea how Geoff Crammond achieved it, but even with the low frame rate, the game still felt smooth when playing it.

Elfmania. It's witchcraft I tell you! I sometimes like to boot it up just to remind me how far the machine was pushed! Playability wise, nah.

I think a lot of people are forgetting what the Amiga could do with Vector Graphics.

Another World, Midwinter and Falcon were amazing feats of technology with that hardware.

I just saw theshadownose playing Woody's World, and the game has the word "impressive" written all over it!

I'm wondering because it's quite unusual to come up with something technically advanced as this as a first game. But then they were three programmers on that game...
Lead programmer Michael Troughton was better known as Kreator of Anarchy
