Indeed thanks for the upload AMSDOS.
Remarkably generous (and patient!) of you.

Yes I was also one that types this in all those years ago.
 :laugh:

For a type-in, it was absolutely outstanding.
Could have sold as a budget game.

I still remember the game poking itself into memory, and then saving to cassette!
Nerve-wracking stuff.

No worries, just seemed a pity to see all that M/C just lying around with no program yet typed in, not blaming anyone cause it is massive. I was a bit surprised to see 5 more programs to go after I typed in the first 2.  :o  How many Commercial Games in 1985 had Rasters in them? That was a surprise to see this Type-in Game have them.  8)


How's that Balloon game, has that been typed-in anyone know?? I hope CPC-Power will be back soon, so I can see what type-ins have been done.  :'(

Yes all type-in from ACU is done. I know some listing from Computing With the Amstrad is missing or at least i can't find them anywhere.

If they are not on the CPC-Wiki (as I'm sure ervin has already painstakingly uploaded them all a while back), then here are the disks for ACU from '84-'88 and the few bits & pieces from '89 & '92. Also attached is a list of the type-in programs to make searching for that elusive type-in a little easier.





(DISCLAIMER: 99% of these type-ins were typed in by Johnny Olsen and ervin, the other 2 or 3 programs by myself)

That's a good point.  What was the first instance of a raster on the CPC?

Thanks! :)
I remember that mega typein


I remember a type in from Your Computer that I never could get to work. It was a colourful MC-code version of Frogger. I think it was smooth and fast. Unfortunately I could never get it to work for a long time before it crashed. Do anyone remember this game? I think it was listed in 1984 or 1985

I was typing in a few "Your Computer" Programs which were on CPC-Power before it went down  :'(  I'm not sure, but I think the Frogger game from "Your Computer" was on CPC-Power cause it was on a Disk which contained some of the programs from Various "Your Computer" magazines, unfortunately I hadn't got around to downloading it, was only concerned about the programs they didn't have (and there were quite a few from "Your Computer" which didn't have them).  :'(


Johnny Olsen posted another M/C based Frogger clone which was a type-in from another magazine called "Road Toad" if you missed that one.

Thanks to all that helped with finding this game.  Works a charm in Winape in 464 mode. No collision detection when not set right.
Quite playable and nice to finally see it working

Splatch - CPCWiki
I don't know if you are aware, but there were actually two versions of Splatch! by Robosoft; one that was the type-in version released in ACU and one that had a doody title-screen and new character set... as well as a menu system (so you could load either version) and a cheat mode.

I have attached the .dsk file here if you want to add it to your Wiki page.

The full version does has a wonderful splash (splatch?) screen, but it lacks the c64-related game description :)

I actually created that version with the menu and cheat mode and I uploaded it to NVG years ago. The original full version featured on side A of the Amstrad Anthology Volume 2 disc, which can be downloaded from CPCWiki.

Was that my download version?  :o  That level data stuff was particularly tricky, cause the checksum code maybe correct, but the line is different from line in ACU.


I quite like the original Title Screen and the use of Rasters - how many Commercial games in 1985 had that?  :D  The commercial games I found here that use Rasters are:


Daley Thompsons Olympic Challenge - 1988
The Living Daylights - 1987
Strike Manager - 1990
Zynaps - 1987

So it's interesting that Splatch uses it. :)

Quite a few IMAGINE games use rasters in their menu screens (The Vindicator, for example) as well as screen-splitting for more colours in MODE 1.

Interesting I was looking up this:


List of Amstrad CPC Games


and found another Image Software game called "Victory Road", which is a sequel to "Ikari Warriors".  :D
