I've just tried the above script (the one in the initial post) and it appears to be fine (aka works for me).

You will see little or no speed change going from 16 to 8 bits. Ok, you can get it 4 times faster going to 10khz samples, but 68000 is still out of league.

I don't really see IK as a great game. Basically it got ported to Amiga because a few folks asked for it, I had a look, and it ended up being easy to do.

Yes but no interpretation is needed for merely representing an image.
It's just that RGB isn't enough for representing everything and there is some logic in wanting to add lightness to that.

I don't think so. 68020 has instruction cache, 32-bit memory access and instructions using less clock cycles, so 14Mhz 68020 was in fact the right choice.
