    If they can achieve it with a plain A500 with 1MB RAM, then probably will do.

    Also it seems that most developers seem to run out of unique ideas, and they trying to remake old goldie games from the past; it's like music, most songs nowadays are remakes or remixes whatever of old nice songs.

    As for Flashback, which is still one of my favourite platform game, the Amiga version has still the best character-animation from any other game, I really doubt that the new remake (or any remake) will make my jaw touch the floor now, as before one or two decades.
    Yes Phantom, I understand exactly what you mean, particularly the animation of the character. It's the same as trying to play Pinball Fantasies on WinUAE.

    It just doesn't scroll smoothly at all.

    Only Amiga makes it possible.

    It is very true that you just can't emulate some things that were originally only made possible through hardware design.

    Parallex scrolling on the Amiga, and most other 2D sprite based 16-bit systems of the time don't quite look right emulated either.

    And look at multitasking.. no OS can still achieve pre-emptive multitasking in such a smooth way with minimal resource use. And I still don't think I've ever seen anything else that can stack screens of different resolutions multitasking behind each other. It is such a shame we will probably never see a true implementation of Amiga multi tasking on a multicore CPU environment.

    BTW, what was the Amiga game that managed to utilise the screens in different resolutions and managed to create a split screen with a different resolution top and bottom?

    Today's coders really don't have the skills or push hardware anything like our beloved Amiga was, and still is in the Demoscene.

    Many reviews are panning it because they are approaching the reviews in completely the wrong way. I've yet to play it myself, but have enough credit in my Xbox account so might get it soon.

    Yeah, for quite some time now. Bought a 250GB slim to play the few exclusives (especially Forza 4) that I couldn't get on any other platform.
