because from Amiga pov it was more easy make a conversion than develop from scratch. However Amiga and Sega was in good relationship

I had both amiga and megadrive live happy side by side on my desk back then. Both equally awesome (well,amiga a bit more), but I found the MD Flashback version to be slightly superior. Still not sure why though.

The Amiga version is slightly more awesome, but the MD version is slightly superior. Why do you hurt my brain

Almost correct in your interpretation. I think you should leave out version here. :-D

Mega Turrican was more polished on the MD. Factor 5 spent much more time to make it nearly perfect. Flashback it pretty good on both machines. Since the full CD32 controller support via WHDLoad i prefer the Amiga version though.

Mega Turrican on Mega Drive is more Arcade with better graphics, better seabed, much more colors and great audio.
Amiga version play better single instruments, but sample are not good like Sega version.

you can make simple test: load Amiga version, close eye and listen to music: make the same thing with Mega drive version. It's not a subjective thing.

LOL okay, that was a bit confusing I meant, both platforms are awesome, the Amiga being a bit more awesome than Sega Megadrive.

However, I liked Sega's Flashback conversion more than the Amiga release.


EDIT: *Hits myself against the head* and thus it was already concluded as such in the thread above

The best ports of Flashback, Out of This World (Another World) and Prince of Persia (1 and 2) are unfortunately for Apple Macintosh. The period in early 1990-ies, the Mac were one of the most graphics capable machines and since they had "high" resolution displays as default 640x480 - many of the games support these resolutions, unlike the low resed Amiga and DOS 320x240 resolutions.

Flashback on the megadrive is excellent.

Sounds like impossible task, without brain...

Have 2 MD carts for Flashback - one of them not working. Never managed to open it and see what's going on in there...

What's this about 'Flashback' being better on the Mega Drive? Nothing better about it.
