The reason RESHOOT has fewer apparent colours is (as far as I understand the thread so far) simple: it uses the remaining colour registers to add lots of neat transparancy effects. This is an artistic choice. You may or may not agree with it, but fact is that RESHOOT remade for OCS/ECS will not look nearly as good as it does now.
Really, making a game is all about choosing where to compromise what. If you think it can be done better, try it yourself first. I did that, once. And it turned out
to be a lot harder to do well than I thought. I'm still not fully happy about that result.
