Zynaps had one of the best music I've ever heard on CPC!
Dave Rogers rules (fanboy inside  :P) and he made the music of this one too
About Zynaps , it owns nice gfx but the handling of the ship is difficult with a bit of inertia and it is very difficult !
"NOP" is the perfect program : short , fast and (known) bug free

Yeah! Uridium is more easy!!! And a whole lot of fun!!! The music - didn't know that it was the same composer, but yes, now since you tell it! Both title tracks are AWESOME!!! Sometimes I start Uridium, just to hear the sound. I also put it into ROM to be able to just start the game by one RSX command :-)

Well, that's the invisible force fields of the other objects ;-) But you're right, it's sometimes a painted ass, ehhh pain in the ass.  (Don't censor it! I learnt it from Ernest Borgnine)

I voted for P47 'cause it's really a great game both technically and playability wise. Mr. Heli was also one of my all-time favourites partly because of the catchy tune. Never could get into Mission Genocide although technically it does have the most advanced hardware scrolling, shame about the rest of the game.

I first voted for X-Out...
But then I also tried P47.
It's indeed a pretty cool game!

Zynaps would have been my number 1, played it a LOT.  Unfortunately its not in the poll, so I had to go for Harrier Attack.  ::)

Indeed, Zynaps has lousy level design in the first 2-3 stages.
Then, it becomes much better!
Then, it repeats the design.
And then, it's over *lol*

Ich habe mal versucht, mit "Unendlich Leben" das Spiel endlich mal durchzuspielen, weil es ja so schwer ist.
Aber irgendwie fing irgendwann der ganze Quatsch wieder im ersten Level an.
Ich habe nie ein "Ende " gesehen!  >:(

I love the Dave Rogers-tunes of "Stormlord" and "Cybernoid 2".
The tune of "Cybernoid 1" is a nice one too, it sounds like "ice cream and ballons".
The AY-Chip can put out some really good music.
Nobody needs a SID, the AY can give you all the sexual feelings you´re dreaming of.
AY-Chip rulez!  :) :) :)

Probably the "Mr. Heli-Sprite" looks too cute for real "Men Drivers".
I love the sprite of "Mr. Heli"!  :)
It looks so fat, round and sweet!
The jolly tune of "Mr. Heli" is sweet as well!

Ich glaube bei die Spectrum version von Zynaps gibt ein ende aber nicht für Amstrad.


Or in plain english: I think that the Spectrum version of Zynaps has an end, the Amstrad version is an infinite loop.

Guys, please do keep it in english.

Ίσως   θα πρέπει να ανοίξουμε ένα φόρουμ ελληνικά, πάρα πολύ.

No, really, we should keep the languages seperate.
That's why we made a German forum section.
It's of course no problem when a non English talking person posts in German, or also a non German talking person posts in English
when a thread is interesting.
But the most people here talk English, too, so they should keep posting in English then.

Wasnt going to vote, because I couldnt decide between my favourite few on the list, cant pick one over the other...  But I'd also noticed over the last week the surprising lack of love for Mr Heli, so it can have my vote.

I always thought Forgotten Worlds was an average conversion of a quality arcade game on the amstrad CPC, too slow compared to the other versions. I can't understand how Mr Heli is trailing behind, that was an excellent shooter, and i'm massively suprised at the lack of love for X-Out.

Mission Genocide on top eh? I can understand why, amazing scrolling, good graphics and a rock hard challenge... I thought the difficulty might have put some off, but good to see its a firm favourite.

I think maybe saying "which has the best playability" would have been a better question? I think technically mission genocide is good, but for playability it is boring. p47 however is good fun and is the one I voted for.

mr.heli is also good fun, but I liked p47 more.

X-Out never really appealed to me.

I don't see your point, the best game would include the best playability... ka

Not according to the poll... Mission Genocide was the bomb. P47 didn't have very good enemy movement, the enemy basically came straight at you. Predicatable and a little boring, and it pissed me right off that the game just loops at the end. Wasn't that impressed, graphically its good.

Each to their own, but your wrong  ;)

Half right  :P

The problem is that for exemple I didn't played some of those game at the CPC era.

X-Out or Mr.Heli or P47... we hadn't them in Valence (no cracked version was shared) so it has no influence on my youth.

Also, forgotten world had it's speed running irregulary, but it was so much fun because of the coin-op 2up player option.

It was a good memory for be because I coulkd share agood moment with by big brother instead of just seeing him play (he was sort of aselfish bitch sometimes.. >:( )

The same with Silkworm (my vote) : it was a shared experience.

ukmarkh

Probably best you don't vote then... maybe a future poll will feature games you might have played.
