The Amiga version of Desert Strike is indeed better than the Mega Drive version (I haven't played the SNES one to be honest). The Mega Drive version had a total of 32 colours onscreen during gameplay, 16 for the backgrounds and 16(15+transparency) for the sprites. The Amiga version is in EHB 64 colour mode, and while the majority of the graphics look the same, you actually get real shadows instead of black dithered pixels, and all the menu screens, title screen and intro are vastly improved over the MD version.
And the scrolling is smoother too on a 68EC020 (or better), compared with the Mega Drive version.
