It isn't. Compiled code is much too slow on a plain 68000 A500 so if you want speed you go for asm, not necessarily 100% asm but all the speed-critical parts. Disassemble any compiled C code and you'll see what I mean.

Most Amiga games were coded in asm for reasons mentioned above. It was like this until C= (and hence the Amiga too) died. Action games = asm. Adventures/RPG's = C (or any other HLL).
