Buggy Boy was not a bad conversion but lack the playability of the C64 version!

Yeh, Buggy Boy was OK. Quite good fun. Even better though, was Continental Circus. I played that game to death.

Rodland was king aceness. Played the arse off of that with my mate on the Amiga. Seems like a near-perfect conversion.

For me it has to be Rodland. I even preferred it to the Arcade.

As for the rest, there were many good ones, even though they weren't arcade perfect like many magazines at the time liked to say. For me, the best of these are Rainbow Islands, Toki and Super Off-Road.

EDIT: Oh, and Pang, or course. Don't know how could i forget that one.

I know it wasnt the best game, but always had a soft spot for Bad Dudes vs Dragon Ninja, and particularly liked the Amiga conversion.
