  • Licensing issues (another company had the rights to the Amiga version)
  • Sales. Perhaps the ST sales sucked so they didnt want to pay for the conversion or the money to promote the conversion
  • Memory, several ST programmers complained that what they could do with 512k on the ST, they needed 1Meg on the Amiga, at the time 512k upgrade cost a fortune.
Well, maybe I'm wrong, but I know that several times games were released for both format in the same time! And regarding the memory, in those days, almost every game on amiga was running with only 512K! (we are talking about the end of 80s and first 90s)
