The two games from 1987 are very primitive looking (by later standards) vertical scrolling shmups scrolling within a massive border, in not very many colours. Presumably using the blitter to do all the work. It's easy to forget how much progress in quality was because of software techniques rather than hardware, and it's amazing how long the Amiga lasted as a popular gaming platform.
