Well, I don't know what Konami game it is. But being a C64 guy, it certainly reminds me of Salamander .

It is Salamander/Lifeforce.

I would love to see a really good port of Salamander (one of my favourite arcade games) and frankly if the C64 can do it...

Also, I made a similar demo (for the PC) a good few years ago but sadly it ddn't go anywhere (although like you, it was more of a test to see what I could do and was used to help me develop other similar games). For the interested:

Actually had a look at my demo and it was a little bit further advanced that I thought! Parallax working well and even had some sort of organice growth thing going on...

Shame this code wouldn't work on an Amiga at any useful speed.

maybe, if I find some ASM coder, I can do Salamander for Amiga, but bassed on the MSX version (thats the version I like of the game), it is easy for me, I have all the tiles from MSX, all I have to do is to retouch a little (as I do with this demo). But prepare to draw 40 bobs at 25 fps minimun in an Amiga 500. This can be a job, I would sell the game in a Big Box, I have experience doing boxes and manuals.

The music can spend a lot of space and time, because, Lo8its sample all the chords from original SCC music, the level 1 theme spends 170k, then, we can asume, if the game has 17 themes, we will need a lot of space (because I want to hear the same musics with the same sound, much better than remade the music with another samples).

I think, this not worth investing much time and effort in turning this game to the Amiga, which is playable in Mame , MSX and C64. I think it's better to make an original game with Konami flawor.
