Great memories of what I would consider to be a perfect game. Heat added
#2
Awesome. Couldn't agree more.
#3
My avatar says it all, a true Amiga classic, steep learning curve though, and in retrospect it does play similar to the sort of thing Dragons Lair was, unless you react with the joystick at point x you wont make it through which can lead to frustration, dated and not going to win any new fans, but for retro fans a bargain at the price! Voted hot for us old skool remembering 30 something gamers. Treat yourself to an Amiga 1200 instead and play it on that though, you know it makes sense ;-)

Classic game - voted hot. :)
#5
An all time classic, definitely hot, thanks :thumbsup::-D

Would be fantastic now if they did a makeover of Flashback too!

That game was too frustrating!!!!!!!!!! my teenage brain couldn't cope with the puzzles and multiple deaths from trying to jump impossibly huge gaps!
#8
Ahh.... flashback..

the crash scene at the begining......... oh its all flooding back.

great games, problem solving at its best...
#9
LOL - it's like the Amiga-geriatric brigade on this thread!

I remember the sheer relief of graduating from the hit-or-miss loading games of the C64 and Spectrum to the more reliable, floppy disc-based games on the Amiga. Sigh. Kids today don't know how lucky they are...

(Where's my Ovaltine..?)
#10
Flashback! I'd love to play that through again. Had some really innovative ideas, like travelling on the subway for one. Crazy story too.

Syndicate was ace!

Don't get me started on Syndicate......miniguns rule!!!

Anybody remember skidmarks...racing game?
#13
Look at all the AMIGA fans on here, Brings back memories of staying up till the small hours playing D-Generation when I should have been studying for my exams, Happy days:-D Anybody from http://www.lemonamiga.com/ on here??
#14
Skidmarks was pretty cool for its day. The graphics were brilliant for an Amiga game.
My all time Amiga favourites are Kick Off 2 and Speedball 2.
#15
I was fortunate enough to have a 1541 for my C64. Man I hated that tape drive.

What about sensible soccer???
#19
might havve to buy this for the nostalgia factor!

skidmarks was ace but massively bugged, anyone remember indy heat and canon fodder?

i remember being gutted because i had the 500+ and a year later the 600 came out which was tiny and didnt have a huge box sticking out the back of it..
#20
This game had at the time what I considered the best intro ever...in fact, I may load up Winuae today and play it again (just wish my A1200 hadn't packed up on me)!!!!!

download it from xbox arcade :thumbsup:

About time I joined in the Amiga nostalgia, I can't believe that nobody has mentioned Stunt Car Racer. 2 Amigas linked up with a null modem cable - fantastic!

Yeah but PC were for the super rich back then, I always wanted one to play Wing Commander on but way too expensive.

Stunt Car Racer was cool but my favourite driving games were Supercars & Lotus Esprit 2 great on split screen

Supercars 2 was very cool, powersliding around every single corner! I think the thing with Stunt Car Racer though was the fact that it took a bit of effort to connect up the 2 Amigas/TV's and you didn't actually know where your mate was. For similar problems I loved the original Populous, linked up it was fantastic to destroy your mate's land! And don't get me started on the Alien Breed series!

Now, does anybody remember Omega Race on the Vic20!

I can't link to that from work, but I assume it's the original version (abandonware), this deal is for an updated version I believe. Obviously if you just want the original, then go ahead.
#27
oooo syndicate i loved that on my 386 pc,,,,how about elite and epic
#28
Obviously people have reminisced about Another World and Flashback, but does anybody else remember Future Wars. I remember getting it as a surprise Christmas present from my parents who don't know the slightest thing about computer games, and to this day can't believe they picked me such a good game when there were all the usual dodgy movie tie-ins about. I can't believe how long it took to put the pin in the map though near the start of the game!

Not so keen on Elite....but fronteir elite 2 kept me busy for months...ferrying gems from Cemeiss to Sol....they paid you to take them away and then you got paid to deliver them!! double bonus...just had to avoid the pirates!

I used to like Xj220 racing...played it last christmas back home and things have moved on a lot over the years!
#31
What about the Alien Breed series. If any game is crying out for a next-gen re-make / re-issue, it's that. Awesome! Hmmm... might have to dig my Amiga out of the loft and have a trip down memory lane...
#32
The big problem with all this nostalgia and playing them again on the pc, it just wouldn't be the same without my trusty Competition Pro!

EDIT: Then again!!

I mentioned the Alien Breed series in passing before, they were awesome games, especially in multiplayer. The suspense trying to find the exit when the countdown was on was fantastic. Unfortunately, I bet if they did a remake they'd make it 3d which imho would ruin it. They could still make it a sort of top down 3d though I suppose...

Yeah awesome game, made by the same folks as Another World and Flashback wasn't it?

Although you can't mention Amiga games without listing the Lucasarts point and clickers, Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis etc. etc. :thumbsup:

:oops:Can't believe I forgot about that. I remember playing it now (having just found a few screenshots) but never really liked it as much as the top-down games, that's my excuse for forgetting about it!

Most people also forget that Commodore released the first ever 32-bit CD based console; the CD32. Which I think was the main platform for Alien Breed 3D along with the A1200.

Always wanted one of those, never could afford one.

Didn't they run an advert mocking Sega for stating that it wasn't possible to release a cd based console for £200 - or am I imagining that! It's a shame that they ploughed big money into releasing it in America where it flopped big time and Commodore never really recovered.

Sorry, but just thought of another top game - Xenon II, surely one of the best scrolling shoot em ups, I remember finishing it and being so chuffed, this was back in the day when you were not expected to finish games!
