I played Space Ace
and Dragon's Lair
on my Amiga 500 and although they were tough they seemed a little more forgiving (at least in the early stages) perhaps because you only had to press a direction on the joystick (or the fire button) rather than click a specific (small) area of the screen.
That said, in the Amiga versions, there was no explicit instruction as to which direction to move - you simply had to guess based on the action and layout of the room!
A lot of trial and error was required, but the beautiful graphics made the experience worthwhile.
