Default Worst game in Amiga history?

I may have just found it! I had a new (in shrink wrap) box of Dr. Plummet's House of Flux that I put on eBay. Didn't get a bid. Then I noticed several other copies that some one keeps re-listing - never gets a bid.
I finally had to see what this game was, so I ripped of the shrink wrap, and popped the disk in - oh lord, - what a rotten game. This would have have stunk as a magazine cover disk extra. I doubt if anything is worse!
It's sort of like an old Vic 20 Jupiter Lander (IIRC) without any features.... or controls.

I'm intrigued - didn't think anything could be as bad as Terminator 2 - Judgement Day

I don't know. Anything made by Titus would be hard to beat as worst game ever.

Ah, so many stinkers and so little time to bag them all! :-)

One particularly whiffy turd was the shameful Amiga conversion of the arcade classic "Rolling Thunder"...

Those (ir)responsible should've been shot at dawn...

Cheers,

Mike.

I still say Dangerous Streets has to be in the top (bottom) 10 of all time. It was exactly like Street Fighter, except for the crappy characters, molasses controls, poor balancing, terrible design, random button mashing... Ok, it was nothing like Street Fighter, except for the word 'Street' being in the title. It must have taken a management team for that game to have ended up bundled with some A1200's. I can picture it now....

Manager 1: "We need something to package with the new A1200."
Manager 2: "Hey, my kids tell me that Street Fighter thing is still kinda popular."
Manager 3: "Yeah, but we can't afford to port Street Fighter."
Manager 4: "We can get a good deal on stacks of this 'Dangerous Streets' game that the publisher can't even give away. Who can tell the difference, anyhow?"
All: "Perfect! Time to vote ourselves bonuses to our offshore bank accounts!"

Did anyone notice that Dr. Plummet's House of Flux scored 77% while Pirates! scored 74% in Amiga Format 9 (Apr 1990) (Link found on "Lemon Amiga"). They're both reviewed on the same page..

http://www.lemonamiga.com/?game_id=1387 <- Crash Garrett left quite a scar on my childhood mind. I bought that 'cos it had some cool airplanes and stuff on the box! Little did I know, it turned out to be a smelly text-adventure.

Agreed, Top Banana suck and blow, were the developers smoking dried banana peelings? I'd also like to add Nemac IV and Breathless to the list, they got to be THE crappiest 1st. person shooters ever.

Top banana was bad, but I would vote for Akira. All the money was spent on the license leaving a game so bad a PD programmer would have been ashamed to upload it to aminet.

Unfortunately, yes... I just had forgotten about it.

Hmmm... If we put the games that suck into canister, would that make a vacuum-bomb?
