that used to generate big random green landscapes with the occasional lake?
Well it wasn't but this memory is cool.
I loved loved loved my Amiga 500 (with 1mg upgrade).
that was a cool game
There, I said it. Rainbow Islands was a classic, it was one of the first games I ever played (it came with my Amiga) - but Parasol Stars was smoother and better.
hope they do it good
Bubble Bobble > Rainbow Islands
Although I did love Gods / Lemmings / Shadow of the Beast / Barbarian / Mega-lo-Mania (oh man, that was ace).

Cake - hammer - earth - apple - tap
Stretchy fun for hours! The days before passwords/save games - man, you really had to book time for a game. Turrican 2 had these huge, epic levels, but you needed like three hours to play otherwise there was no point.
w/ level editor.
The hotly-anticipated sequel to Gravity Force 2, given away on the cover of Amiga Power. Was so much fun - a Thrust game, essentially, but you could alter gravity, recoil etc.
Other notable mentions:
Starflight and Starflight 2: Trade Routes of the cloud Nebula
Xenon 2: Megablast (complete with Bomb da bass soundtrack)
Kick Off 2
Merchant Colony & Cohort
Wide World of Sport Boxing
Then obvs. Cannon Fodder, Syndicate, Speedball 2, etc.

Worst difficulty curve in a computer game ever. Apart from maybe Oh No! More Lemmings.
Sword of Sodan?
Motörhead platform game, where you played as Lemmy. Anyone remember this? Instead of collecting coins or stars you had to collect beers and bottles of liquor. And ride around on a motorbike.
Double Dragon style! Freaking awesome: you could blast power chords as a ranged attack and everything.
Four player multiscreen madness. Listened to a lot of Siamese Dream and Isn't Anything playing that with my brother.
