Hello,

I voted Flying shark. It is not technically the best shooter, but it's the only one I took pleasure to play with. Other ones are too slow or simply boring...

I voted for Game Over II (Phant'is in Spain).


It's has not the best graphics, it's not specially difficult, but it was super fun. And as you could play the two parts of the game very fast, that made it a superb game to play when you had very little time.


I still play it from time to time  :laugh:

I'm missing a link to the game P47.
Can't find it on the NVG FTP.

"Light Force" is a great shooter with nice graphics and gameplay, but "Mission Genocide" is also a nice shooter and offers the best vertical scrolling on planet earth.
Mmmmh... ???

The URL is ftp://ftp.nvg.ntnu.no/pub/cpc/games/arcade/p47.zip.

I voted for P-47 as well. :)

I had to choose between Mission Genocide and Mr.Heli, and I went with Genocide.

Smooth movement is important to me, and the minimalistic graphics are somehow charming. Mr.Heli has neat music, but the gameplay in Genocide is more exciting to me. Yes it does tend to get a little boring, but as levels progress it helps. I got to level 3 where things began to get quite interesting.

A lot of the games on the poll has very annoying sound effects that simply ruins the game experience in my opinion. And no matter how impressive graphics a game may have, chunky movement renders great graphics useless in my world.

Xout was also interesting though, but not quite enough.


I've never played Mission Genocide before, but as it looked amazingly much like a C64 game, we searched for a C64 version and found it. Then we played the game on both machines at the same time. They are 99% the same, but the sprites move smoother on the C64 (as they do most of the time), but overall a very neat Amstrad version.

Most of my CPC games are budget one, since back in the day, $45 or so was a bit much for a game, so for me, it was a toss up between Mission Genocide and Bosconian '87.  Love the music on Bosconian, but in the end Mission Genocide won out simply for fun factor.  Flying Shark is the only other game I've played to any great extent, and discounted it due to the annoyance of bullets being hard to spot at times.  Nothing worse than bullets that are the same colour as most of the background.
