Ghosts'n Goblins GX4000 final alpha version !
« on: 14:52, 28 April 18 »
Hello,

The time has come to my version of ghosts'n goblins on gx4000 to be released !

Thanks to the people who helped me !

The game is not perfect, but playable, and i hope people with c4cpc will play it on real hardware !
 :)

EDIT : i discovered a bug that only happens when you don't beat astaroth (the final boss) at the first time !
So i changed the cpr file to the patched one.
Sorry guys !
 :P

Great news, thanks for all your effort and making this available.


Is this an initial release?  Will you still be working on it to improve it?

Superb stuff Xifos! Just played on my 6128 Plus! Love it even if it is just as hard as the original arcade game!

So glad you continued and finished this!

This is an incredible version of GnG !

As Difficult as Arcade version, i didn't manage to kill the 2 boss of the second level.

Thanks for your hard work  :D

It works very well on my CPC6128+  ;)


Many, many thanks for this great conversion !




EDIT: it works even on my CPC464+, is it a 64k only game ?

The game is indeed for 64 ko ram and cartridge, it's targeted to the gx4000.

I found a little bug (i think that one  :) )

When i shoot with weapon which is not a knife, the current shoot cancel the previous.

Then if i shoot permanently, my weapon cannot reach the ennemy at the far right of the screen.

It's not a bug, it's a feature !
 ;)
I did that because you can only fire one weapon at a time.

There are others bugs, but they won't prevent you to play...

This is fantastic! I mean, I know that is still an alpha, but it plays and looks awesome and I easily find this already one of the 8 bits renditions of the game. Lots of respect to you. These type of conversions also make me wonder how nice it would have been to have the Plus range a few years earlier...

It's not really an alpha...
I wrote that for joking sorry (final alpha).
It's a way for me to say that it could have been better.
But for now i don't think i can improve it.

Without question, the best Amstrad GX4000 and Plus game ever made, you must be very proud. I wish you were programming games back in the day I’ve nearly finished it, very close to other versions I’ve played.

Totally agree, if this game was released at the time of the CPC+, i would have been a mega hit on this computers.

Reached third level, i love this game from my arcade memories.


I would have liked the original C64 soundtrack converted to AY for the title screen, but it is only my little whim  :)


Thanks again for CPC+ game.

Yep, playing it on my GX4000, so close to finishing now, didn’t go to bed until four this morning. So far invested around twelve hours into it, spent about three hours running it along side the arcade and other versions just for comparison

This is a real gem and a dream come true for me... Thanks a billion.





Can I be so cheeky as to ask, what’s next? The Amstrad needs a proper conversion of Green Beret

Had a few more games of this quality been available when the gx4000/plus range was launched it might of stood more of a chance to be successful.  Great work.

Congratulations !

I am very happy that you did not abandon your project. The result is a very good game for GX4000, which as everyone knows is sorely lacking.
May the force be with GnG lovers  :-*
