Why did they even make Last Ninja 2 on the Amiga?

I just been playing Last Ninja 2 Amiga version and ok it looks pretty awesome, but the controls are a complete joke!
The C64 version is hard to control too but at least I can actually get reasonably further in the game!
The Music in the C64 version is far superior too, maybe I'm just a sucker for sid chip sounds

Last Ninja 2 sucks completely. Graphics, sound and controls, awful. Play Ninja Remix instead, which is in fact Last Ninja 1 on the Amiga.

That one was pretty hard to record... the later stages are harder than they look.

Much harder than the C64 version.

Ah yes LN2... the game simply isn't finished. Once you take a good look at it and you examine the actual levels, you'll see shadows with no trees/bushes, missing elements that are there in the C64 version, etc. If you examine the animations (and I have done so extensively...), you'll find missing frames or even animations with two frames switched around.

IMO they ported the game and the release was rushed before an optimization could be performed. There is simply no reason why the game has to be that sluggish.

I can see "twin towers" on title screen but maybe it's just something similar.
