Possibly the only good vertically-scrolling shooter on the Atari Jaguar, Raiden is a conversion of the 1990 Tecmo arcade game, but with a horizontal screen instead of a vertical one. The game was ported to the Jaguar by British company Imagitech Design and published by Atari Corporation in 1994.

Ultima VI: The False Prophet, Commodore 64
The Commodore 64 version of Ultima VI: The False Prophet was programmed by Axel Brown of Imagitec Design and published by Origin Systems in 1991 and is the only 8-bit port of the game available. It is a somewhat stunted version of Ultima VI, with a number of changes made to make it fit onto three double-side floppy disks (six sides in total).
Dinolympics, Atari Lynx
Also known as The Humans, Dinolympics is the Americanised title of this original puzzle game, developed by Imagitech Design and released on the Atari Lynx in 1992.
Bubsy, Atari Jaguar
Bubsy (in Fractured Furry Tales, to give the game its full title) is another okay-to-middling platform game that stands out like a sore thumb on the Atari Jaguar.
Zool 2, Atari Jaguar
Gremlin Graphics‘ lollipop-endorsing, ninja hero Zool was in our faces all throughout the early ’90s. He was supposed to be a kind of ‘anti-hero alien ninja’ to mirror the ‘coolness’ of Sega‘s Sonic the Hedgehog, but only made relatively minor inroads into gaming history with two games that originated on the Amiga then were later ported to a variety of different platforms. Zool 2 was converted to the Jaguar by Imagitech Design and was released in North America and Europe in 1994, and later in Japan, in 1995.
