Goldrunner: I don't like the man but i reckon Braben is no fool, Frontier was released in 1993 and probably wasn't coded with plain 68000 based machines in mind but at least 68020 based ones.

On an 68000 based Amiga 500 it would have been faster to fill surfaces and draw lines with the blitter than with the processor itself but maybe that would mean some major rewrite of the gfx drawing logic part of the program with all that it implies in term of dev time, cost, new beta testing sessions, etc. (and they were late on schedule as i recall).
