    1986 game "shogun" would be an easy game to remake as a hobby, so many simple ways to add to it

    Hunter was great! Never played Midwinter but I did have the sequel, Flames of Freedom which was good.

    I would love to see Eye of the Beholder (I, II and III) updated to a modern engine, and combined into one long adventure. It was the first game (on Amiga, aside from III) that I spent serious hours on, and enjoyed drawing maps for.

    Does anybody remember Deutros? It was the sequel to Millennium 2.2 and was a strategy game. Like to see that updated.

    I was going to suggest Stunts, but it many ways Trackmania and it’s sequels are good modernizations of the style of game, albeit without “real” cars.

    So maybe Stunt Island.

    Awesome game surely has potential in the mobile era?

    Maybe, pc too. Might be considered too simplistic these days

    Simple but so addictive and such a challenge! Given some of the absolute rubbish churned out for mobiles a canon fodder remake could have serious potential!

    Roadkill on the Amiga
    Seek and Destroy on the Amiga
    Desert Strike on the Amiga

    Those are favourites. One day I hope they will be remastered!

    As much as people wax over Desert Strike, the last of the strikes Nuclear Strike is the one that needs to be overhauled.

    Crummy 3D engine hampers going back to the best game in the series. I mean do all of them in one package, but Soviet and Nuclear always get criminally overlooked.

    Dungeon Master, Chaos Strikes Back & Dungeon Master 2 were all incredible - would love to see a Dungeon Master 3 updated with modern gfx but with similar controls & style of play.

    A similar but less well known classic I spend years playing on the Amiga was Liberation Captive 2, fantastic game

    Glad to see it has already been mentioned, but hired guns! The hours spent on this one.



    There was supposed to be a sequel and I do actually have a copy of the game so far that I got hold of years ago but it is rubbish. No atmosphere and I don't think the game is ideally suited to free roam 3D. Give me something with the legend of Grimrock engine.



    There is a doom mod.



    This guy started making the game to learn programming but no longer in development. Bit of a shame as it looks great.



    And not strictly a remake but a Turrican classics collection on the switch with enhanced graphics and an orchestral soundtrack whilst also having the original games on there would be great, maybe with some extra levels.
