Fred - your posts can be so hard to read some times lol :)

Anyway - My hands down fave game is Project X, it was the first game I fired up when I got my A1200 for Xmas in 1993. I'll never forget my jaw dropping at the graphics.

Ahh TEAM 17! :D

There was a time where I would buy literally anything with a Team 17 logo on it, and I'd know that even the most rubbish of their games would still be a corker. The amount of time I spent on Acrade Pool during my Amiga school days is the stuff of legend! :lol:

If I remember correctly Team 17 apparently had a massive long-running feud with Amiga Power magazine? I think it even got so bad that Team 17 refused to send them copies of games to review! :roll:

Long story short: Arcade Pool is the best in a long line of great games from Team 17. 8)

You be correct.It got really personal too.Some of the cheats you entered into game displayed personal messages against amiga power :lol:I think we owe some gratitude to team17.One of first companies to use A1200 power in their games to give enhanced graphics and sounds.

My favourite Team 17 game is Qwak :D
It was a straight to budget release, one of Jamie Woodhouse's finest! (along with ATR that he also did)

Team 17 were one of my favourite companies during the Amiga years. My favourite games by them were (in a rough order, best first):

All the Alien Breed games (2D & 3D)
Superfrog
The Body Blows games
Project-X
Worms (mainly Worms: The Director's Cut)
The Speris Legacy
Super Stardust

I'd always be happy to see anything about their games or company in RG.

Yeah, it was Amiga Format issue 67. They gave away AMOS Professional, Sensible World Of Soccer, All Terrain Racing (Xmas Demo) and The Lion King (A1200 only)

Hmm, tough one. My favourite on the Amiga is Superfrog, although I spent a lot of time playing Arcade Pool on my CD32, and I've recently gotten into a PC remake of Qwak, but overall, I think Worms Armageddon... :)

tbh, although I've already specified a game, I like all of the Team 17 games.
Surprisingly, Team 17 started out as a PD Software Library, 17-bit Software!

Worms.

Without a doubt. Goodness only knows how many hours (days?) we must have played on that over the years. None of the sequels got the gameplay sorted, and out of the versions I've played, somehow the PS1 version seems the best. Not played it for a while actually, might fire it up tonight :)
