Out of that list, I never understood why Forgotten Worlds didn't get more love. I thought it was great when i first played it in 89!
Might give it a blast now actually :)
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1GB 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?

Just been playing Savage and the Sacred Armour of Antiriad again and it was these two games that I showed to people with a C64 to rpove that the CPC could outmatch it in the hands of a good developer team.

I must mention this game that I found on the CPC Power(now defunct), which i was really impressed with as it looks like it is just a type-in jobbie , but performs really well in the vain of Galaxians... It is called 'Alien Attack' and is well worth seeking out!I do not know where you would look for it now though?

Ahh well done. It's not a bad effort in my opinion, I do not know it's origins but it has got all the elements of a good galaxians clone!

Definitely not bad! Looks older than '88, but very cute!

You can always try NVG which is a very good place to look for amstrad games.

I was just playing 'ChaseHQ'. There's lots of cars in the game, which got me wondering. Imagine if I could select the Ferrari instead of the Porsche, or the Lambo? Race the track in reverse, or change the colour of the car or play the robbers. Anyway, got me thinking, would a game like Gran Turismo be possible on the CPC?

A very interesting point... Well, Chase HQ was not a pure racer where such a variety is more valued, and it had plenty of thrills anyway; but still, probably easy to do and it would have added to the marketing value of the title.

That's a old classic game. I haven't seen of them for a long time. It's nice to get back to early '90. Well done

I love the way long dead threadws can be opened up and re-invigorated in this forum.


I am also with you on chuckie egg, although it gets crazy difficult on levels above 20 with the Big duck, the blue birds and the lifts.... Damn that is the stuff of nighmares!

I'd love to beat you on your own website, but I find the controls are just a little too laggy on your emulator :( Always the problem with web based emulator I find. It takes a while to adjust the jumping reactions and that then throws off the timing when playing on the real hardware. Thanks for the games tho, best I managed this evening (on your site) was 97k

Hi CraigsBar,



I did not detect a slowdown. Which web browser do you use?
It's a shame that you did not send your score to enter the ranking. I like when there are records to beat.  ;D


Right now, I'm trying to break the record on "Rick Dangerous", but I'm blocking at one place.  :(

Can't believe nobody has mentioned Easi-Amsword yet. The programming house, Juniper Computing, created a text adventure way ahead of its time, producing a parser that knew every word you threw at it, regardless of how it was spelled. The location descriptions were dynamically sparse which added to the neo-psychedlic groove to the whole experience.

Hehe 😄

I loved Easi Amsword. It was the first word processor I ever used, before I knew what that meant. Used to type stuff in it just for fun as a kid...

I used to make pictures in Easi-Amsword yeeears before I knew it was called ASCII Art because I was so desperate to create pictures on my CPC and didn't yet have a graphics program until I got Smart and G-Paint from Amstrad Action covertapes. :P
Favorite CPC games: SwitchBlade, Stryker in the Crypts of Trogan, Turrican II, UN Squadron, Oh Mummy

It's so hard to choose any 1 game as being best.  Of all the ones there they are all fantastic - but some huge ommissions - games I loved and for most part still do:

- Oh Mummy
- Harvey Headbanger
- Donkey Kong
- Yie Ar Kung Fu
- Renegade
- Gauntlet (the arcade conversion)
- Defend or Die
- The Covenant
- 3D Star Strike
- Elite
- Starion
- Star Wars
- WEC Lemans

to name a few.

Worst titles ever:

- Braxx Bluff

Perhaps I will say Yie Ar Kung Fu is the best one... I got so good at it I could just play for hours on end in the same game - eventually the score turns into random graffiti.
