Is screen 8 considered very suitable for games like Visual Novels or not so much?

Don't see why not, disk space aside... Whether it was used for them is a different matter. Zoo was screen 8 I think?

The engine used in the Uridium 2 demo could be a good base also for a platform game.
I do not see real problems in the use of screen 8 for games. The main action goes with sprites.
Blocks are in rom and partially in vram under the border, the vdp is devoted to scrolling, to animate sprites and to limited background animations.

Flashback / Another World = SC5
Pinball Dreams = SC7 / SC8
Black Tiger = SC4

It's my opinion.
