The ST is in no way faster than the amiga (i mean by this REALLY faster). When we say the amiga is faster or at least has game which runs faster on amiga, it really is, and not this "ahah i have 2 images displayed per sec more than the amiga version.... the ST is really faster than the amiga XD".
Seems your right dlfrsilver, I was always lead to believe by my ST owning buddies that the majority of 3d games were quicker on the Atari, looking at it now this seems like bollocks.

The only blitter usage seems to be in clearing the frame buffer.

There must be a reason why he didn't use the blitter more on this game for optimisation, surely someone like Braben with his massive brain would have figured it out, or maybe just a time issue.
