Action platformers, maybe, but Batman The Movie and Ghosts N' Goblins were both really ace on the Amiga.

And still no one has mentioned Turrican II !!!

All my other favourites have been mentioned. A few underdogs that I've a soft spot for are Lethal Weapon, Robocop 2, and Rolling Ronny. Worth a look after you tried the best.

Leander is a beautiful game but I sometimes find I listen to the soundtrack more than I play the game. Sounds great.

You've fallen for marketing spin there. Rotoscoping had been in use for traditional animation for decades before Prince of Persia came along:

Jordan Mechner even used the technique for Karateka 5 years before using the same technique in Prince of Persia.

I'm not big on Amiga platformers (being an ST owner then) but I've always liked Robocod on either platform.
