There is nothing wrong with the game itself, It looks like a fine port. The problem is the bizarre "benchmark" of it to promote OS4 superiority.
The game happens to have been ported by someone who has also been contracted by A-eon to work on their 3D graphics stack. As was just announced, they will fly him out for Amiwest all the way from Europe even.
I do not think it is far fetched to assume that the version for Hyperion Entertainment's OS is the most optimized one compared to the AROS and MorphOS ports. That is perfectly fine and completely understandable. It also does not dimish the value of having Tower57 available for MorphOS as long as the performance is good enough to be playable.
Of course, if you want to gauge the credibility of the published benchmark numbers, all you need to remember is that results on AROS were not included... We all know how those would have turned out.
