The SNES and Megadrive made coding the kind of graphical love you see in Lionheart much easier. With coding that kind of quality of graphics on the Amiga needing high levels of skill and experience it was no surprise most of the 2d games on the 16bit console were surpassing it.
Turrican 3 for the Amiga was rushed. I don't remember where I saw that but i remember Thierolf saying that if the game would have been coded initially on Amiga and not having been ported from the MD, it would have been far better.

This is all about coding skills and, more important, money. You cannot rush a game and simply release it when you have to pay a massive amount of money to produce cartridge. Amiga games can be released a week after they were finalized.
