Favorite X68000 games?

Gotta spruce up the discussion a bit, what are you Top 5?


In terms of exclusives, I'd say:

Cho Ren Sha 68K
Ah My Princess!
Etoile Princess

In terms of arcade ports, I'd say:
Ghouls N Ghosts
Gradius II
Sorcer Striker
Atomic Robo-Kid


I'd say so far for original content:
Etoile Princess
Die Bahnwelt

The rest are usual suspect arcade ports such as Dai Makai Mura, Strider, Gradius, Parodius etc.


I really enjoy Geograph Seal, even with the slowdown on a standard X68000.  Aquales is a pretty fun exclusive as well.


I'm a Sega fan, so I like that

Alien Syndrome
Super hang on
Space Harrier

They are much better than the Amiga versions


Star Wars - that's why I bought an X68000.

I'm not a real shoot-up fan, but there are many great titles.

Since I am German and can not speak Japanese, there are many adventure songs that I unfortunately can not play.

My favorites so far:

Geograph Seal (Did anyone get these cheats to work https://www.gamespot.com/geograph-seal/cheats/? I didn't, but they maybe because I have a keyboard adapter and ps/2 keyboard)
Die Bahnwelt
Alien Syndrome (is there some cheat/trainer available?)
Star Wars

And since there are soooo many shmups (and it's  not my most favorite genre as well), I haven't decided on favorites yet.
