This games cannot work on Falcon because using special tricks with video HW to achieve fast scroll and overscan.
Famous Schrodinger's cat hypothetical experiment says that cat is dead or alive until we open box and see condition of poor animal, which deserved better logic. Cat is always in some certain state - regardless from is observer able or not to see what the state is.

Wings of Death does not sync scroll like Enchanted Lands. Lethal Xcess does.

While I certainly won't put the time into it, I'm quite sure a dedicated coder who wanted to could probably remove the sync scroll from EL and put in STE hw scroll instead.

Enchanted Land has good scroll only in intro, in gameplay it skips. So, really not worth to deal with.
Lethal Xcess uses blitter if it is present, but I'm not sure is it for scroll or what. Overscan is first thing what needs to be solved, then scroll can via blitter or STE HW scroll way.
And to quote: I certainly won't put the time into it.
