Why Myth's C64 version is better than Amiga version?

I never played it on C64, only Amiga version. I watched a C64 longplay on Youtube and quite understand why it is groungbreaking but what I don't get is why everyone says Amiga version is inferior. It is quite similar game in comparison with better graphics and sound. Do I miss something?

The Amiga version has a jerky scrolling but smoother controls, compared to the C64 game. Not much else to say. Both versions are pretty good.

Is there not a spectrum version or something that wildly differs to the c64/Amiga version? My memory is fuzzy.

Yeah, I never played it but I saw some videos, it seems to be a pretty good game for the speccy standards.

The NES version is atrocious though.

The C64 version obviouly has superior music ;-)
Objectively speaking the Amiga version of course looked better, but I think ppl were more impressed with the c64 version.
I still have mine on Cartridge ;-)

I never got around to playing it on my C64; had moved on by the time of it's release on this system

...but I was mighty impressed with the Amiga version at the time and still am to this day. It's an absolute classic, definitely in my top 100 Amiga games, and would recommend to all

yes the spectrum version is a fantastic game , perhaps the best spectrum game ever done
but is not the same game of Amiga and C64
the amstrad version is the clone of the spectrum is fantastic too

The Amiga is superior in every way to the C64 (how evident it is !)

The c64 is an 8 bits computer, it just cannot compete with the Amiga, near or far.

Well, the C64 version has at least a smooth scrolling. Depends on who is coding the stuff on the Amiga, huh?

Does it really matter ? Seriously, no. And i can tell, because i use a 16/9 large Philips CRT TV for display, it just kills the eyes when a game has a too low screen refresh.

On a game like Myth, smoothness is an unnecessary luxury, it's not absolutely needed to enjoy the game. The Amiga version is smooth enough to not make the eyes bleeding, so that's what counts.

Myth is a great game to play, and beautiful visually, with great sound and music by RJ.

Yes, it matters in my book because it wouldn't have been impossible to do it properly. Anyway, it's a nice game. Not a real classic though.

Doesn't matter, it was a partial copy protection. The whole level 1 solution is written in the original manual. Later levels are free of these traps.

The C64 version has one of Tel Jeroen's top masterpieces. The rest of the rounds go to the Amiga version..

As for the 8-bit comment.. Well the PC Engine did well with its 8-bit CPU and minimal amount of RAM (but yes, 16bit gfx)...

Both great versions to be sure, but I reckon the C64 version was banging it's hardware harder.
