Opinionated question, voting to close it.

What's also really strange is that even though all those graphics in Puggsy are extremely low fidelity, the game comes on a whopping 4 disks. So the first disk probably just contains the nicely rendered space ship animation which is pretty much all there is in the intro but still 3 disks seem to be way too much for those poor graphics...

It will be the music and samples that bump it up on Amiga version, I would imagine the sample quality and quantity are over what the Megadrive had

You mean you didn't like dizzy. I don't think you could honestly argue it was crap. Especially its 8 bit itterations

I can and will, especially the 8 bit incarnations.

I liked the first game on Speccy and finished it but never tried any of the sequels because they all looked the same thing again. Could be completely wrong about that though.
