If the actual game is that slow to play (and I suspect that as it's an ST port, it may well be) then it's quite surprising considering the relative strengths of the 68k+Custom chips versus the plain z80
That was done in an A500 environment in WinUAE, and it was a basic CPU copy routine, not the blitter one that Mr.Spiv and Asman came up with.
In the final release, there will be different and selectable redraw routines to choose from.
Its noticeably quicker with the blitter routine.
On the A1200 its too fast
