    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.

    *Thunder Blade arcade release: 1987

    *Sharp X68000 computer system release: 1987
    *Thunder Blade X68000 release: 1990

    *Commodore Amiga 1000 / 500 release: 1985/1987
    Thunder Blade Amiga release: 1988

    1 CPU vs 2 and still X68000 version looks very close to arcade.
