if beast wins, could people please 'aquire' it for study purposes and just stroll around in the first forest? It's important to understand the art, to see how it functions in-game. A lot that seems 'broken' as far as pixel-art goes actually goes to very good use. There's wonderful parallax and music and stuff! The atmosphere can't be beat! Do yourselves a favour :)

Yep , you have to see it to understand why it became so popular when it was released. The parallax is awesome (maybe not by todays standards though). For those who doesn't have an Amiga and are to lazy to use an emulator you can get some movies of it running here: http://recordedamigagames.ath.cx/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=2

Chrono Trigger on SNES

I've got tons of screens too.

I gotta support this one. Some stuff done in terms of perspective play in that game chenged the way I percieve Overhead 2D games.

[Edit] Just noticed the screenshots have already been shown. But I still say it should get broken apart.

She's not guarding right now, she's just holding a thing to pass along to her husband warrior and then go do the dishes and change the diapers on the snake-babies.

My vote's for Chrono Trigger. ALthough took me the least amount of time to beat, was one of the most interesting games I've played. What was that robot's name? Xoon?

His name is Gato and he has metal joints. Beat him up and win 15 silver points. Or something. (Assuming that's the robot you're talking about.)

that was just the one at the fair, i think hes talking about Robo / R66-Y / R-66Y

My vote is for shadow of the beast

as far as CT, we all know it rocks, but its one of those games that is always mentioned, along with SD3.  nice game, but id like to look at something different

That Shadow of the Beast looks... Well, some of the screens look like crap, too little contrast for such interesting organic designs. I think I'll vote for Shadow of the Beast. I've never played Amiga games in my life and I've seen some great pixel graphics there. This game should prove interesting to take a look at for someone like me (and I guess I'm not the only one who grew playing NES and few old PC games, so Amiga is new uncharted territory).

DoDonPachi is awesome, I would have voted for that one but that Shadow... Well, it's screaming "re-make me!!"

See ya.
