Another bunch of grade A classics - Again some surprises in there, would have thought Turrican II would be higher. Me too! Though I'm still stinging over Bubble Bobble being so low! :D ArsTechnica has "Prince of Persia" "War Stories" video from the creator of the game that tells a bit more about it...

Re: Wrath of the Demon (Atari ST vs Amiga)
