Alien Syndrome - Fixing scrolling?

The Amiga port of Alien Syndrome is quite good.
The main problem is the horizontal scrolling, though.
I guess the developers simply converted the ST push scroll method.

With earok´s brilliant U.N. Squadron hack in mind, I was wondering if it´s possible to hack this as well?

A normal horizontal scrolling would improve the gameplay a lot.
What do you think?

Yes, the scrolling is the worst thing about the conversion. Second worst thing would be the missing levels, and third worst the way you can only have one of the little robot lackeys instead of two like in the coin-op.

better redoing it. We have access to the game graphic assets these days.

If it was feasible to change push scrolling to real scrolling i would also fix Bionic Commando; however am afraid that one is built in a way that simply does not fit with real scrolling
