Indeed, it was made for a different audience with different expectations. That's why I said that on the Amiga the typical 'console' platformers were mostly missing, but other concept with a different gameplay evolved that I don't want to miss It's about variety and I don't need Super Mario World on the Amiga to be honest.

"Mega Turrican's final factory world that ended with the confrontation against The Machine is simply missing, the game just ends after the Alien boss, despite showing The Machine in the intro and outro."
It really seems like it was left out for some reason.
