why not screen grab it and use software to count the pixels for you and there by telling you the number of colours

...

There are two trains of thought with regards Amiga games.

Shadow of the Beast is 'PHYSICALLY' only 32 colours with regards to bitmap colours, but with extensive copper colour reloading is way in excess of that.

Jim Power is a better example, I think if memory serves me right, it is 'physically' only a dual playfield game and from a bitmap perspective has only 16 colours (8 per playfield), but that too has extensive copper colour reloading that makes it a lot more.

More pics:

Using PPP, it counts 96 in image 1, 88 in 2 and 87 in 3 (before I manipulated them)

128 max onscreen reported by the mag sounds about right.
