I'm not really sure this place should have gaming coverage, it derails everything hmm. In any case it should go in GENERAL DISCUSSION.

In any case, if you have an A4000, I suppose you have a hard drive, and you should go here: http://www.whdownload.com/
HD installed games (by means of the AWESOME WHDLoad, which you should register now) that run well on your machine. You will have problems with floppy software, specially old games (before 1992 and some after that too). And who teh hell wants to use dying floppies anyway?

My favourite Amiga-exclusive games are Turrican 2, Mr. Nutz (not like teh poopy console versions, a totally different game), Kid Chaos, Alien Breed Special Edition '92, Arcade Pool, Disposable Hero, Lotus Turbo Challenge 2, Skidmarks 2, and a special vote for Jetstrike, a truly remarkable and usually underapreciated game (nice one, Adam)

Aminet is a shareware/freeware repository, you won't find any of the commercial games there, but you will find most every tool you need to get your Amiga up and running. Keep it at hand.

Maybe a mod can move it to General discussion? Please?

Chaos Engine, Speedball 2, Hired Guns, Perihelion... so so many great games.
Also you can try to get a hold of a copy of Capital Punishment. It's not terribly good, but I did some of the gfx for it back in 96 big_smile

I would also second Chaos Engine and Speedball two. I add Syndicate and worms.

Wings, Mindwalker (amazing soundtrack), Sinbad:Throne of the Falcon (ditto), Hard'n'Heavy, Datastorm (great Defender/Dropzone mash-up)
Clown'o'mania, Battle Squadron, Hybris, It came from the Desert, Galactic.

Oh, btw, aminet is crappy for getting games. Go to lemon amiga or something.

Some more.

Ruff 'n' Tumble
Frontier: Elite II
Cannon Fodder
Lemmings
Defender Of The Crown
Sensible World Of Soccer
Moonstone
Walker
OnEscapee

Lemon Amiga is crap, it doesn't have download links either! WHDownload does, and is specially good for newer Amigas.

You can also try back To The Roots: http://back2roots.org . They also have demos.

I just got an A1200 with 2gig HD. How do you get the WHD on a real amiga disk? Plus, WHD doesnt work for all games right?

Also, when I buy games off online stores/ebay half the disks dont work! Is this normal?
