G loc on Amiga

Do you think that was poorly converted due to Amiga limits, or it could had been better due to Amiga?

Typical US Gold conversion - rushed, no care for making a good game, as long as it came out, some suckers would buy it. The Amiga could have handled a much better version but I'm sure US Gold just signed up the first team they could and said come back with something, and damn the quality.

Main CPU : 3 x MC68000 @ 12.5 MHz In parallell ...specialized zoom n rotation, transparency “unlimited” sprites
Going by the other releases I’d guesstimate a good doom port to be more likely than converting that.

Other than that, I refer to Codetapper

Depends on which Amiga version you're talking about really?

This one is average: After Burner (Activision)

This one is much better: After Burner (Sega)

But was this one reviewed in The One? Or was it the other this one that was reviewed in The One?

Or was it both this one? Or none this one?

Everything is possible on Amiga.. Or almost.
Unreal sprite scalling engine could have been perfect for this kind of game.... Hugo too..
