The key being "SoR-inspired", let's not keep trying to port games over, rather, let's inspire ourselves in these games to create something from the ground up but with a heavy influence coming from there, all the time having very clear in our minds what the limitations and possibilities of the Amiga are.

In my opinion, to get an SoR-inspired game, all you need to have is some smooth multi layered parallax, an amazing graphic artist (no half assed efforts would be good, and also must know how to pixel stuff in japanese game style), and a great soundtrack. The gameplay is very basic and it's easy to beat the game with some tricks here and there. There's not really that much to level design, but it's simple and fun and that makes me keep going back for more.
