Today I fired up my original CPC (the one I have since 88)
I tried one of my favs for one round.


That snake game with the super scrolling from Titus collection 2.

I was playing Stunt Car Racer on the CPC this week, I was curious to see how the 8bit versions played because I only had an Amiga by then.

In my top 10 list.
I played all version, loved the Amiga one but the DOS version had unlocked framerate.
Also the new BBC version is fantastic.

Try the Atari 800 XL version as well, it’s new and uses 128k, blisteringly fast!

The ST version is a little bit faster than the Amiga one too but without the sound of the creaking wooden boards on the turns on either of those two alternate versions the game loses a lot of atmosphere. You can of course play the ST version on a Mega STE (16mhz 68000) or an Amiga 1200 but I can't remember if they work on either upgraded model....will have to go and check now.


Of course the 8bit versions didn't have that so for them framerate is everything.

The Amiga has the TNT version that has some new levels and faster speed but still skipping frames.

TNT is a compilation? Or was that on the 8 bits. I will have to check that one out, maybe look at them running side by side.


I was playing Z by Rino Software, I had this on my own C64 but my best friend who had a CPC never bought it. It's surprisingly nice actually, very playable Time Pilot 84 type game.

Cheers will check that out  :)


I was quite impressed with Alien Storm, thought it was another game that puts the CPC 16 colour mode to great use. Surprisingly good conversion of the coin-op.

Was playing Afterburner today, I thought it was actually quite good compared to other 8 bit versions.

Played "Le Necromancien". An awesome (french) adventure game. Finished it! If you understand French, play it, you won't regret it.

I enjoyed playing Star Raiders II on the CPC a lot (hideous on the C64 and great on the Atari), also played Rescue on Fractalus is OK too but just as slow as the C64 version so not quite as responsive as the Atari versions. Probably a lot of room for 6502 to Z80 code optimisation missed out there.
