I'm not suggesting the CPC version was perfect by any means... but back in the day I enjoyed it. It was possible to progress and beat the game, the small playing window didn't help things, but it was just one of those things you had to look past on the CPC as most of the games used only a small part of the screen.

In terms of playability, it was pretty much the same game, and I heard that Namco gave Mastertronic the licence to make the game. I think too many people can't see past the graphics on the CPC, this is why R-Type comes in for so much stick. It's actually a great CPC game.

Record smeckord, the only game a girl will ever beat me at is Barbie! Or dressing up! Barge poles, and all that. :D

Alright. Let's see proof that you can beat her new highscore:
428930 points, reached level 21.

Ah... a Sony monitor... so tell us give us some informations... Which computer, which game, which cheat mode... and so on ;-)

BTW.: You're right with Bosconian on CPC, it's made like a poor basic game. The CPC could do so much better.

It's just the Namco joystick you hook up to a TV.

Got it! Quite impressive score - I think. But we guys can do better  ;)   

What do you mean with "You don't have a decade time to beat that highscore!". Hehehe!

This is a reply to your wife's earlier level 12 effort... it was my 2nd go and I basically rushed through without hardly shooting anything, I gave up in the end because of my short attention span, mind you it didn't help that taking the photo cost me two lives  ;D . I will have another go soon and post a better score and higher level.

Marauder (Hewson) is a nice game.
The scrolling is soooo smooth!
Some kind of hardware-scroll?!
Does someone know more about the used scroll-routine?

And yeah.......great title-music...AND ingame-music...AND highscore-music, written by Dave Rodgers.

:P

Xifos

I did not know marauder, and it's impressive.
I think it uses soft scrolling , 112*128 screen (wich means double buffer), maybe 17-25 fps (good).
The scroll has a nice parallax effect !

sigh

I would of voted for X-Out

einoeL

This one is gorgeous!  :P



So cute!
Listen to the sound effects!

Best game for the CPC ? Just call me oldschool or not :


- Boulder Dash 3 (the one with living blobs)
- Commando
- Donkey Kong
..


Actually the ones we played and loved as a kid were finally the best. Gameplay was so addictive..


But one of my probably best game ever is Stunt Car Racer (any platforms). The only pity with this game is that there are only 4 tracks to play :-(


Targhan

4 Tracks ? There should be 8 (if my memory serves right...), 2 per division. Anyway, great game indeed :).
Targhan/Arkos

Arkos Tracker 2.0.1 now released! - Follow the news on Twitter!
Disark - A cross-platform Z80 disassembler/source converter
FDC Tool 1.1 - Read Amsdos files without the system

Imperial Mahjong
Orion Prime

norecess

Hmm... I guess I should replay the game then.  ;D

My fave game was Striker by cult gamse, mainly because of how simple yet addictive it was. It had its limits and bugs, but being able to work your way from the bottom league up to playing in europe was lots of fun.
