Final Fight

Final Fight received reasonably high marks in most of the reviews when it was released, but people on forums have been scathing of the Amiga conversion. The rather ugly static 16 colour palette certainly didn't help things out, but judge for yourself!

These graphics have been converted directly from the Amiga data files, and as such, they have not been rearranged into their respective characters.

    Presumably the lack of colour was for speed, but why then allow so many enemies on screen?

    The way these sprites are stored in horizontal slices is interesting though. How would they be assembled in game? Through a look up table and positioning routine? Assembled then drawn, or drawn in 16x16 blocks one at a time on a hidden screen?

    Funny, a few of these characters' sprites seem to have an okay color palette, but most of them don't because of the color palette choice. The Commodore Amiga had 32 and 64 color modes, and this game would have looked better if one of those were used. I'm guessing that they didn't use a 32 or 64 color mode because the frame rate would suffer. According to Kim Justice the Amiga's port of Final Fight was a good one (even though it lacks the music, smoothness, speed, and colorfulness of the arcade version).

    Why didn't they use the Amiga's 32 colours, or even the 64 colour mode? Yeesh!

    So the characters and backgrounds used the same 16 colour palette?

If you look inside many Amiga games, secret messages have been hidden by the programmers. Richard Aplin was the king of hiding messages in the startup-sequence file, and his Line of Fire and Final Fight startup-sequences have become legendary! The Sensible Software team were also prolific at hiding messages in their games.
