I'm suprised because surely even an old PC is more capable than an Amiga??
Yup, the raw speed of old PCs are usually greater than Amigas, but remember that the PC is emulating an Amiga - that means that it's reading each instruction of the game, translating it to a PC runable format and generally emulating a lot of Amiga stuff. As the Amiga has lots of chips and components working simultaneously, this is even more complicated than with simpler machines, such as a Spectrum or Megadrive.
