I would be more moderate.

The 1200 is underpowered compared to the 500 and it is much easier to push it to its limits since the chipset is too slow for its best graphic modes but it has enough potential to provide close to arcade perfect ports of many (but not all) 80s games. I for one would have appreciated to have Capcom/Taito/etc "classics" collections for my 1200 at that time...

Then we can think about the possibilities of an AGA hardware pushing monster!
It can be done. But it is not going to be perfect or easy.
Also Truxton is already on my list. Tell me if you start the port so I can avoid it.

The reason I am aiming for such a low spec is because it's my first Amiga game, and first game in pure asm. I wanted to limit the complexity such that I can actually finish it in a reasonable time.
I think this is a wise choice, you can target more complex systems once you get some hands on experience. Have you chosen what you will do?
