As well as an impressive back catalogue of CPC games, Ocean's has left a legacy touching every major gaming platform of the 1980s including the [[ZX Spectrum]], [[Commodore 64]], [[Atari ST]], [[Amiga]], [[PC]], [[NES]], [[SNES]], [[Master System]] and [[Mega Drive]]
Although they developed and supported a number of original games and ideas, they will be forever associated in the mind of the casual game with their [[Licenced Gamesgames|TV & Movie licence games]] and ports of the latest arcade hits from [[Konami]] and [[Taito]], the latest of which Ocean always seemed to be advertising up to six months in advance of release in the magazines of the day!
By the time the CPC had arrived on the scene, Ocean had already beaten their North-East rivals [[Imagine]] who had overreached themselves in the battle for supremacy. Ocean took on the brand name for themselves and made a number of key releases on the label in the following years.
