I reckon A500 could handle 50fps, scrolling isn't that much of an overhead and there's really not that much CPU work going on, the Megadrive doesn't have faster CPU than A500 anyway.

But perhaps the lack of detail in the background was a trade off for speed?
OCS/ECS really isn't so great when it comes to backgrounds. Using hardware dual playfield means you only get 7 colours on the foreground, which is seriously restrictive. Some good artists can make it work, but it requires compromises to be made.
I presume the background is made entirely out of sprites and copper effects.
