Title: 4 screens from 'Graphic Master V2.0' by Vortex Computersysteme
Post by: ComSoft6128 on 08:20, 13 June 22
Impressive German art program from 1985 for the 464 ( + disc drive), 664 & 6128 which was available in 3" or 5" 1/4 formats.
With a little improvement this could have easily rivalled the 128K Advanced OCP Art Studio which was released two years later.
Just check out those lovely mode 0 screens - which, according to one review, could be printed in colour, unheard of on
the CPC in 1985!
The opening tile(!) menu is corrupted slightly but that doesn't affect program function.
Worth noting is the lack of a palette file.

Three reviews from the German CPC press(Google translate does a good job):
