What Are the Best Five Amiga 500 Games?

What Are the Best Five Amiga 500 Games?

in your opinion.

Rules are :

1. Rank in order of greatness where 1 is the best.

2. You can choose 1Mb games but no other enhancements are allowed

3. No more than 5 games.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

(I'm still thinking of mine, but Player Manager will be involved!)

No particular order:

Midwinter
It Came From The Desert
Civilization
Pool Of Radiance (or any Goldbox game)
Zak McKraken

(I don't mention Pirates!, because it's the best game ever on any platform, by default, so there's no need

It's tricky, because some of them are ports. If I was to make a list of best Amiga originals, it'd perhaps look a bit different.

If Magic Pockets had sleeker and less clumsy movement along with background music, it would be a classic.

Another World
Croisière pour un cadavre (AKA Cruise for a corpse)
Shadow of the beast 3
Speedball 2

Hmmm, ah no finally

Turrican 2
Apydia
PP Hammer
Populous
Super cars 2

... No,wait, I think it is :
BC Kid
Slamtilt (Oups AGA)

Okay I give up. Too difficult. I played a lot to all these games and some others.
Currently my best is "New Bubble Story". But I am not really objective...

Civilization
Player Manager
Turrican 2
Cannon Fodder
Lotus 1

Turrican 2
Cannon Fodder
Lotus 2
Stardust
Lionheart

These games are technically all very good, and also interesting enough to be played for a longer time.

Seems like a typical thread that already exists, but tastes change so why not repeat it!

My -current- top 5 would be:

1. Valhalla 2
2. Super Cars 2
3. Gods
4. Dynamite Dux*
5. Captive

*Coop play specifically, because this game then becomes far more hilarious. Infinitely replayable, nice tunes, good humorous graphics, nice selection of weapons, the only downside is that the bosses are downgraded from the arcade version and really easy to cheese, but on the other hand that made it more kid friendly.

Alien Breed
Dark Seed
Pinball Dreams
Nighthawk F-117A Stealth Fighter
Worms

I'm going with Amiga originals across genres in this case.

Definitely good picks, I never got to play them so they're not on my list. On the Amiga that is, when I played Worms I had already defected.
