Did anyone on the board here get this?

Huge collection of rare vintage computer games and accessories for Amstrad 6128+

Bit p*ssed as I've been after a copy of Super Cauldron for 10 years now and I forgot to bid  ???

Damn, I could have done with 'legalising' my copy of prehistorik 2 too.

Damn, the date only goes up to 2010, so I won't be bidding.

There was a CPC version?   :o

It's a great little game especially in 2 players.  It was also included as an extra on Super Mario Bros 3 on NES and I spent many hours playing my friends at it when not playing the main game.   Part of the fun is that the players are solid to each other and can be bumped into the enemies.  Or you can knock a safely flipped over back the right way up again just as the other player is about to finish them off and they get killed.   Ahh, I love 2 player games where you can be co-operative and lovely to each other but then choose to backstab them all to hell.  They're the best kind!

Hm, CPC version doesn't look as good from the screenshots but I dunno if it plays anywhere near as well as the NES game.

Hmmm, The floor is **WAY** too slippery on the CPC Version, making it nearly impossible to jump accurately (I just tested it from NVG) but I can see the attraction of the 2 player version. Therefore in my opinion it is not worth the 34.99 that it is currently on Ebay for.


One for the collectors I guess.... Perhaps it is rare because it is not so good ;)

I had it back in the days. Quite a good port of the arcade version. But i don't think it's nowhere a rare game

Yeah, I had a couple of copies of it on tape when I was younger, I wouldn't have thought it was rare at all.

I think the same, that game was common as mud. Nice for a two player game, better in green monitor than in the colour one... what awful palette!!!.

But i never will understand why the mode 0 loading screen simulating game sprites and the game was in mode 1!?!??!?!

I understand the palette choice.  Red & blue for Mario's usual colouring, black for outlines/details/background and white being the final colour so it's a neutral one able to be used all over.   It's not pretty but it is somewhat logical.   But yeah this should have been a Mode 0 game anyways and that loading screen just confirms that it would have looked much better.   Even the Mode 0 Mario there looks far better defined than the Mode 1 version.  Bit of a tease that.

It does not have a monitor so it may not work and it is likely that the keyboard membrane will need to be replaced, so it is already overpriced.

The membrane I'll admit is a bugger but these are usually easily fixed and it is in wonderful condition. It suppose it's a case of how swayed by condition you are.

Honestly if I wasn't brassed atm I might consider it to add to my ever increasing CPC collection. Unfortunately it might cost me parts of my anatomy with the wife :o

Yeah, I didn't think the CPC's were that hard to bring back to life? For a boxed version in that external condition I'd definitely have a punt at that price. Thanks BB :)

True, from RWAP. To me, if I could buy it and have it working for around the £150 (given the external condition from what I can see in the pictures, and it's boxed with the original polystyrene innards) I wouldn't feel really feel like I'd been done...

That looks in pretty good condition. If only I had that sort of money spare (plus more most likely), I would place a bid on it....

Mind you, it may be boxed but the grime on the keys shows it's been well used...

True, although they don't seem yellowed and the blue colour doesn't seem to have faded.
