I think you are being a bit too optimistic. The most technically advanced games on MegaDrive / SNES (extra chips notwithstanding) are out of reach of an A1200 graphically: cannot have 64/256 colors per scanline with full dual playfield and an almost screenful of moving objects all at the same time. Both consoles can do it but there would need to be large reduction in graphical fidelity for the 1200 to achieve a graphically faithful result. Same for sound. These consoles are more powerful than we usually think.
