Games for the Commodore Amiga home computer.
Burger Man, Amiga
Released for the Amiga and Atari ST in 1991, Burger Man is a clone of the classic Data East arcade game, BurgerTime. It was created by Cloud Nine Developments and published by Byte Back, with Paul Johnson doing the coding and with graphics by Nick Meade and Carl Cropley.
It Came From The Desert II, Amiga
It Came From The Desert II is an add-on/expansion pack for the classic ‘giant ant’ Cinemaware game, It Came From The Desert, and was first released in 1990. The story in this is set five years after the events of the first game. You don’t need the first game to play It Came From The Desert II, although you can load a save from part one, to continue from where you left off.
Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon, Amiga
I don’t know why, but the Amiga version of Cinemaware‘s classic Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon looks absolutely terrible. The graphics are appalling and the presentation overall is very rough around the edges. Compare it to the Commodore 64 version and it’s easy to see the disparity.
Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, Amiga
Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe is the 1990 sequel to The Bitmap Brothers‘ Speedball. The game makes several changes to the original Speedball, but the main change is that teams now have nine players on-field (eight outfield players and a goalkeeper), instead of the previous five.

Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon, Amiga

Eye of the Beholder, Amiga
Eye of the Beholder for the Amiga was developed by Westwood Studios and first published by SSI in 1991. I believe it came out at the same time as the MS-DOS version, so is one of the original versions. And it truly is a brilliant game.
Ultima VI: The False Prophet, Amiga
The Amiga conversion of Ultima VI: The False Prophet was programmed by Abersoft and first published by Origin Systems in 1992.
Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny, Amiga
The Amiga version of Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny was converted by Keith Jackson of DMA Systems Ltd. and was first published by Origin Systems in 1990.
