You probably know about them already, but Exile was ported to the Amiga and Atari ST with the help of Peter. (Though I don't think he's on this list.)

There were two versions for the Amiga, the original OCS version and the later AGA version. I strongly recommend avoiding the AGA version, it's pretty horrible.

Exile is also one of my favourite games, and at the risk of being lynched on this particular mailing list, I think the Amiga OCS version is the definitive one to play, though the technical achievements of the original BBC Micro version are unsurpassed.

(More impressive than Elite? I think so. A sadly overlooked game.)
