IIRC thats pretty good. Zool 1 & 2, soccer boy were pretty smooth platformers. For early games, batman & buggy boy spring to mind. Alien Breed had a cult following.
Bubble Bobble & Rainbow Islands were quite good ports too, but now you might as well play the real thing. Alot of the great games were out on the PC too ( lemmings, indy 500, indiana jones etc ).
I better stop now, there were lots of great games and I don't have the time to play them right now :-) There were a lot of crud games, the a500 was around in the later half of the 80's & it rocked for it's time. The a1200 was a bit late coming in 92. More colours and a bit faster, the visuals were better than the genesis and snes ( although mode 7 effects were smoother on the snes ). However with only two years until the PlayStation & Saturn, any decent games developers had jumped ship already.
