?? I don't think there is enough info on that page to determine that?
you should read all his articles:
he did "Scroll Programming" for Wolfchiled and if you read article about Switchblade, you will find:
"Switchblade was the first game I began writing for the Atari ST.
...In fact, the only downside of developing Switchblade in my spare time was that my coding skills had improved so much in my day job, that in the evenings working on Switchblade I was going back to working on the code of a novice programmer and had to force myself to keep moving forwards to complete the game rather than constantly going back to rewriting the code to make it technically better."
we are talking about Simon Phipps: http://www.simonphipps.com/design.htm
regarding Rick Dangerous he wrote:
"The screen was 32 characters (256 pixels) wide on all formats, including the Amiga and ST versions, since we were so tight on time we could not afford to have different width maps for the different formats."
se he is coder and designer and graphicisian (how you call a man that draw graphics?)
non of this does not say exactly if Wolfchiled is made for ST but there is more (in Wolfchild article):
"To take advantage of the MegaCD's extra space I created an new introductory sequence for the game, and then spent many more hours revisiting the graphics, boosting the original 8 colour sprites and backgrounds to 16 colours."
so graphics for original Wolfchild did not use Amigas 32 colors? (it could be because additional bitplane would steal CPU cycles in chipram)
btw I did not notice that NGF have picture from Switchblade as avatar
