True, though some games had pretty fast scrolling with minimal status panels - Ghosts 'n' Goblins springs to mind, though there were usually only 2 small bad guys (+ Arthur) on screen at any time - except the boss screens which was the only time the screen was 'locked' (no scrolling), but that made the bosses supersmooth and awesome to look at (even in just 2 colours!)
