This evening will be Alcon-evening :-) 

The parcel arrived and the first impression is: OUTSTANDING. Absolutely professional.

What an amazing game! I didn't manage to get to level 2 yet and we definitely have different definitions what "easy" means ;-) 

But wow! Awesome. Great fun!

One thing: the PCB in the cartridge is quite wobbly and e.g. on my Plus I have to bend the whole cartridge slightly so it properly connects. is it possible to open the cartridge without breaking it to check if I can fix the PCB again?

Any news on when the standalone Play2CPC interfaces will be sent. I cannot wait to test this on something other than my plus with a PlayCity attached!

Would be nice to get ETA's at least. Nothing definite but even an idea of times would be something to look forward to. :) 

In the meantime, Craig... fire up the GX4000. I have my previous score to beat. :D
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

Damn it, you mean I need to get the 6128plus out? So you can have the 6 channel audio with it?

I suggest to post on the Play2CPC topic.

Hi Everyone, just a quick question as I don't have a CPC-compatible CRT.  I'm using an LCD that has scart input - I found that usually when staring to play Alcon (gameplay), it isn't scrolling silky smooth - but then if i die a few times it will be 100% perfect (it can alternate between dies and games).  I've thought it is either a game bug, or an incompatibility with my LCD TV.  Can anyone confirm this?

Slap Fight has always been one of my favourite arcade games and the CPC version is probably one of if not the best arcade conversion I can think of - at least for scrolling shoot em ups.  Moon Cresta is up there too for scrolling stars shoot em ups.

From memory in Alcon, if you choose to sacrifice your life without shooting anyone, you get automatically powered up, that appears missing - but not really a critisism - amazingly good game on the CPC!
