That's a really difficult answer to give! I love Superfrog and think it's the best platformer on the Amiga. But then there is the Alien Breed series that look, sound and play fantastically.
But then there is Worms! Ah bugger. Just for my shear love of the game though, I'll go for Superfrog. :lol:

Alien Breed - Brilliant top down shooter. Aged really well, wish it would come back to iOS

I only ever really played Alien Breed and Worms. I loved the gameplay and graphics of Alien Breed and I loved the style and humour of Worms.

Has to be Worms Armageddon. Loved the game play, tactics and childish humar. Was going to say would be great on Android but after a quick look up, theirs loads of worms games for Android. Time to go to the play store!

Alien Breed Special Edition was their best game in my opinion. It created an awesome atmosphere very reminiscent of Aliens the film - I put many hours into this game over the years.

A small mention for Apache too, which I found quite a fun little game too. I imagine something like it would work on mobile (at least as well as any other arcade game on a machine without buttons...)

Worms Directors Cut for me it was a great swansong for the mainstream amiga and possibly Alien Breed 3D

Project X was so cool back then, the music was astounding and I loved the graphics and lots of speech. And the tunnel sections- "speeding up!"

Alien Breed. Probably in the remix/budget variant.

Worms. A genuinely amazing game and didn't feels like a crap computer version of a better console game!

It'd have to be one of the Worms games, but I'm not entirely sure which. Armageddon is probably the definitive version but the original deserves props for introducing the concept.

Definitely the original version of Worms for me, I still don't think it's been bettered and subsequent sequels just over complicated things.

I've lost count of how many hours I've wasted on the Jaguar version, which is my favourite console port as it lacks most of the bugs present in the Saturn and PS1 versions.

Definitely Worms, brilliant fun at the time, and kudos to Team17 for hosting top rated user-created SFX packs on their website back in the day. Including one I made from samples of Oasis songs (probably completely illegal now!) :lol: 8)
