Question What's your favorite game developed by The 8th Day?

Here's a simple poll that not even the Maaad Mods (© / ®) could ruin, cause I've securely covered all the possible options already.

So, the question is easy: What's your favorite game developed by The 8th Day?

And before anyone asks, yes, I know Gender Wars is not available on the Amiga, but... they did it and thus it requires a mention.

Heimdall's not really my cup of tea and I've never even heard of Gender Wars, so...

It's a pretty... poor Syndicate clone.
Got some funny cutscenes, but the levels are less action and more running around and opening/using stuff. Boooring, to be perfectly honest...

Heimdall! It took me ages to figure out the controls without the manual back in the days, but I loved the intro so much I never gave up The fighting system is awful, but progressing on the different islands is real fun

I disliked Premiere and i've never played Gender wars...

I liked and finished both Heimdall 1 and 2: the one had more convincing ambientation, some cool design, great intro and character creation monigames. but it was flawed, imho, by a too obscure path to follow and a silly party management and combat. the combat animations were great! but too few, repeatitive and often the combat itself too hard.

Heimdall 2 had more colourful graphics, even if - maybe - a less inspired, simpler but repeatitive combat, easier gameplay and clear enough goals. as well some puzzling part that left me very cold.

however i guess i prefer the second episode, all in all.

I like Heimdall alot, never played Heimdall II nor Gender Wars enough to say anything about those.
However, Premiere is my choice.
Great platformer.
