SVIV vs Battle Squadron

SWIV and Battle Squadron seem like a pair of worthy shooters, but I noticed that Battle Squadron seems to be a little slower in animation terms - at least to these eyes. Would that be down to the way its coded, or is it maybe something technical like its using more colours, sprites, bobs, thingummys etc?

Soley down to the style of game the programmer was aiming for.

SWIV has lots going onscreen, but the programmer took little care when it all got too hectic and started slowing down, whereas the programmer of Battle Squadron took care to have the game running with as much onscreen as possible without the slow down.

The constant loading for SWIV is actually a drawback with regards to extra DMA being used by the drive controller.
