What are your favourite Amiga games? Do you enjoy playing platform games such as Superfrog or do you like shooters like Project-X and Gloom?

I don't have an amiga (yet - I do plan on getting an Amiga 500 or 1200).

I've played some games on it that were also DOS games such as the Dizzy series. Those are always good. Apidya seems like a pretty good game, though I've mostly played it because of the music :P

Cool that you're interested in getting hold of an Amiga. It is highly recommended. I still enjoy using my 1200. :) Have you heard about the Natami project by the way? You can find more info http://oldschoolgameblog.wordpress.com/ ... ompatible/ and http://www.natami.net.

There's also the Minimig implementation. Check it out at Amigakit: http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/cat ... cts_id=777.

Sounds like a pretty cool idea. As great as all the old games were the systems never were - they were always over-reaching their capabilities.

My favourite Amiga game had to be either Zool 2 (really fast platform game trying to compete with sonic and doing pretty well) or Syndicate (well need i say more, awesome game!)

btw if you've played syndicate do you remember the level in Colorado? I think the mission was something to do with assassinating the president or something? Anyway...there was a really long street lined with loads of people where the motorcade came down and if you used a laser and lined up your shot just right you could kill like a hundred civilians with one shot...now that was fun! :)

I played both Zool and Zool 2 on the PC. Didn't it have fruit pastilles in it? :P

I was going to say liquorice allsorts, but yes, now I remember, it was sponsored by Chupa Chups!
It was pretty good, though I never played it much, going to have to add that to my list of games to have another play-through :-)

Yeah the game was sponsored by chuppa chups...i think in order to subliminally intice everyone who played to then go out and buy loads of sweeties, who needs teeth when you have Zool 2 anyway?!

Hehe.. good point! ;) I'm probably going to have a go at Zool myself this summer. Such a classic platform game deserves to be played!
