Well this week, I am working through the Spanish coding compo 2014 tape. So far I just live 2048.... The music is wonderful, anyone know who wrote it?

After watching Lukozer's you tube channel's review of Zolyx for the C64. I had to check out the Amstrad version again to see how it compared.And was pretty impressed with the conversion , for some reason I had written it off when I had played it in the past. Really good game , and that is what I am playing mainly this week .

Dunno if you can call it 'playing' but I been loading up more recent RoboCop Prime stuff to check it all looks fine on a real CPC.   And it does.  So that's nice.

Oh and some blasty fun on UN Squadron!

Well yeah it's unplayable cos it's mostly screenshots and sprites/tiles testing on the real CPC.  The running game code only exists on PC at moment.  I just like to test the colours all look right on the real CPC screen.

Les Crackers Velus.

I love 2048 as well, although the MODE 0 version looks much better than the MODE 1 version!

And where is this mode 0 version? I am really impressed with the music and dithering shades. I feel a cart image coming up here.

It can be downloaded from NVG:

ftp://ftp.nvg.ntnu.no/pub/cpc/games/board/2048.zip

The file contains DSK images of both the MODE 0 and MODE 1 versions.

I finally cleaned out my back room enough to rescue my 464 & 6128. Using the tape cable & my mobile phone I loaded up Seymour Goes to Hollywood. I always wanted to give that a try...

Playing Space Harrier II at the moment, I have to say I think SHII is a brilliant port, I was quite happy with SHI with its wire frame graphics. But the sequel tops it , moves at a decent enough pace (for an 8bit), Lovely colourful graphics, great music and there is very little noticeable  slowdown . I think they did a good job with this , great bosses and an enjoyable challenge.

Starstrike 2 again, this game never ceases to blow me away whenever I delve into it, so much variety , and all done with superb skill and presentation, plenty of action and a little bit of  depth to keep you involved. Far superior to Elite IMO although different game in many respects

Hmmm Starfox , yes that one needs to be checked out , not really looked at that one, Starglider, I really want to enjoy more than I do , whenever I play it . I never seem to get very far in it ? I'd like to see a playthrough/guide of it.

Here's a hint: To replenish your energy, find a power line (a set of three pillars) and fly very slowly between two of the pillars, aligning your ship with the third pillar, while hovering just above the ground.

I had a go of Space Harrier 2 on the CPC... What a complete load of balls and sluggish shit. Then loaded the original, my life and balance was restored.

I like both the Space harriers probably mentioned it before , Don't find it particularly sluggish on SH2 .


SH2 yeah it's not the quickest thing in the world , but can you really see an Amstrad throwing all those sprites around any faster ? Apart from doing it with wire frame like the first one? don't think it's a bad effort really , Especially when sluggish comes to mind with most games on the amstrad .

Yep Starfox turns out to be a great game for sure , I would have turned this off in the past , had I not given it a good chance to show what good shit it had to offer, best find in ages.

I have never been a footie fan. If you cannot pick the ball up and run with it, what's the point ;)

However I do love the occasional kick about on Manchester United Europe.

Well in Kick Off, i could take the ball and run in "8" around the opponents players...

How bad was his game (also it was far greater than it's sequel!).

There is only three soccer game i still play on CPC : Emilio Butrageno (too easy but really fun), Matchday II (i like to play two player at once by redefining the keys to the same configuration) and Emlyn Hughes (the best amstrad soccer game imho).

And one day i'll add the game sigh is (slowly) creating.

I've been playing B.A.T by UBISoft. Good game.


It was one of 4 Mastergames when it was reviewed in AA68. The other 3 was a Flight Simulator game (don't remember the name), Switchblade for Cass/Disc (I think) & Total Recall.  :)
* Using some of the hardly used Amstrad compilers :D
* I use Firmware in my Assembly code :P
* Have interpreted some BASIC 1.1 programs for BASIC 1.0. :)

Armageddon man, are you fluent with this game? I don't think I understood it when I looked , admittedly not read instructions or paid close attention.. Is it any good?
