This port was Incredible for the time.
I'm an Amiga fan, but I've got to admit the X68000 looks the better version
I was pretty impressed with that X68000 port and one can think of the X68000 as being no more than 1/2 the performance of the board that ran the arcade game.

1 CPU vs 2 and still X68000 version looks very close to arcade.
Don't act so surprised you should know that 99.9% of x68000 arcade conversions where amazingly close to the arcade original.
Shits all over anything the amiga or any other home pc had to offer .
I had to quote this for absolute truth -- You said exactly how I feel about X68000 vs Amiga gaming in general.
Hell, the original X68000 of '87 has no problem pissing all over the A1200 of '92 with its AGA chipset.
What a beast.
X68000's sprite / video chip.
