What did people think of Alien Breed - Tower Assault??? I found it ludicrously difficult - invisible aliens???? come on! I mean, I found AB 2 challenging but completed it, Tower Assault - not a hope!

I still have fond memory of Superfrog which was a superb platfomer. Body Blows was decent though it's not suited as a one-button game, but got something out of it. Also I was very impressed with Quak as it seemed to be compare with Bubble Bobble and Snow Bros.

Aaah - Team 17 ..I liked the fact that for some of their releases they issued updates or when they issued budget versions of full-price games they got a tweaking, ie:

alien breed SE 92
Project X SE 93
Body blows (there was an upgrade option for the full price game, which added some extra bits to it)

really enjoyed those three, but also:

alien breed 3d
worms: director's cut
super stardust
apidya (though technically they only re-released this on budget; another software house originally released this as a full-pricer)

I've played a bit of F17 Challenge, even if it wasn't the best racer around.

.... think I'll go off and fire up the amiga now :D

I think I would say that Alien Breed is their best game. I am sort of fond of Project X, but I accept it has a few flaws(like the control system), and it was tricky!

Team 17 were great on the amiga. Project X is one of the best shooters on the system. They even won the rights to re-release Apidya.

But for Team 17 games, it has to be ATR. I just love it.
Why not!? a lot of the latter Team 17 games were published by them but developed out of house, ATR was written by 'our own' Jamie Woodhouse out of house, same for Stardust, F17, Assassin, Qwak, Speris Legacy etc, they are all still Team 17 games at the end of the day.

Oh how I wish I grew up with a CD32! Now that there are custom DVD cases for it, I need to get my paws on one ASAP! So many great Team17 games...

Here is a cover I made that isn't cleaned up yet, but decent.

Absolutely love the Team 17 games. I love Worms, but I found Worms 2 a lot better. Mainly because I found it a much more well rounded game. The voice sets (mainly cockey and yorkshire tyke) are bloody hilarious. Plus, it introduced the Super Sheep!
