Knight Lore was the best but the one isometric game I keep playing is the very very underated Monster Max for the Gameboy. Well worth a try

I'd go for Knight Lore, Molecule Man, Head Over Heels and A-train! Love them all!

I can't remember if I responded to this, so, I'd say Crusader No Remorse. The PC version was good, but the Saturn conversion was just great.

I would second Marble Madness but also I feel like I should show some love for Glider Rider. This was an obscure game I had on the CPC that involved riding around on a motorbike and then taking off on a hanglider to launch bombs at the buildings of an evil genius. It was a pretty unique game for the time and also had superb sound to boot. I never did get round to finishing it as a kid either.

I must also put my vote for Crusader No Remorse, i had it on the playstation, great game that could be finished time and again, plus the graphics held up for years, good looking game
But surely the isometric game i put most hours towards was Fifa 95!

The sims (origanal game) this is the most coolest and non liner games of them all, and now for an older game is has to be where time stood still, this was one the best speccy 128k games of all time.

Populous 2 (Amiga) - amazing Xmas day gaming! Closely followed by "The Great Escape" (DOS)

How about a game screenshot quiz? Amiga, DOS, Megadrive and Commodore 64.

Viewpoint for the PS1 without a doubt, beautiful graphics with excellent audio and superb shmup gameplay.
From Game&Watch to PS2 and Arcade in between, its been so much fun every single step of the way.

Being a rather big Sega and SHMUP fan I must say Zaxxon. I just recently had the joy of playing it on a old arcade cabinet, and boy it was one of those life changing experiences. Pure bliss.

Did anyone mention Airball? While not being exactly my favourite isometric game, I was kinda attracted by it, in a subtly disturbing way. Maybe it was the bare-breasted female gargoyles decorating the rooms pushing on my then-young hormones, but most of all I found the game's music (playing on Amiga) mesmerizing.

I've always been prone to the influence of weird games, like almost all the Exxos production (Temple of the flying saucer, purple saturn day and even Teenage queen - for those who endured to the end of it), or games like Mindwalker, just to keep on the amiga side.

HOLY KITTENS IT'S GOOD! (as seen on Darren's Twitter feed)

I'll not spoil the surprise, it's got to be seen to be believed. :D

Has to be Knight Lore, everything from the loading screen which seemed to defy attribute clash, to the utterly unique gameplay (until everyone else cloned it), this was the Daddy of them all.
