since it cannot handle complex animations,
the sprites are all smallish...
The Amiga ports were not done by Sega themselves, but by third party developers, some time even US Gold. US Gold was the other name for bad quality. I wonder how these games were on the Japanese X68000 platforms, but I don't have X68000 emulator on AmigaOne yet
I heard Ghost and Goblins on X68000 is very good, close to the Arcade original, but on the Amiga it is not bad either.
