Any Amiga shooter running in every third Vbl is crap.
The intro music is among my all time favourite though.

On my STe Zool runs in 1 Vbl ONLY when there is a maximum of two enemies on screen and the game does not scroll more than approximately 3 pixels per frame.
It can get EXTREMELY slow (1/4 VBL?) when there is many enemies on screen and you scroll around at maximum speed. The Amiga version is WAAAY faster.

It drops frames but it drops frames on the 500 too from memory. I don't think I ever saw it drop four frames tho. The blitter on the STE is fast enough to mask about 1/3rd of the screen at 50 hz. Runs like a dog on an ST. Nice game on the 1200.

Like I said STe owners should have been whinging W.O.D didn't run any faster on their machines It's a fantastic game on a 512k STFM.
