Anyone remember the game "Thexder"

It was an awesome arcade game from the late 80s ported to Amiga, Apple IIGS, DOS-based, and a few other computers. The Apple IIGS version has long been my favorite game, or at least in the top 5. I recently played the Amiga version and it was horrible

I was hoping to have some fun with it through winuaex on my xbox. Why do you think it was ported so poorly?

Because it was ported by Americans that largely didn't have the first clue how to get the best out of the Amiga.

This unfortunately is a typical thing, Americans rarely used 68000 Assembly language, opting for basic languages which hardly ever translated well on Amiga.
