We really should have one of these games on the Amstrad !!!


'You Have to win the game!'

You Have To Win The Game playthru on C64


And


'VVVVVV'
VVVVVV on the Commodore 64


They look great and look well within capabilities of the Amstrad!?


I hope we see something of this nature on the Amstrad....

Well.... I'm just curious.... if someone would start to work on such a game on a professional level, would it be enough to get 500 Euros together, to get the bills payd... since young folks in the EU got no jobs anylonger, it may be an alternative  ;)

I didn't like  VVVVVV vvvvvvvvery much, it was ok, but the conversion looks great. YHTWTG, however, is brilliant!

All the MAME games the CPC can emulate. (Like Pac-Man)


And there are probably examples of games which can work on a CPC. Flynn did a great job on H.E.R.O for example and it works, though the 2600 version presents some difficult rooms to get through which requires pinpoint accuracy on the joypad, it might be possible to have that on the CPC, though I'm not totally sure.  :'(


I'm just saying that making games based on what the Amstrad is good at, rather than what should be on an Amstrad maybe an suitable approach. You could make a game based on another game though, though it might have it's own twist which makes it work on an Amstrad.
* Using the old Amstrad Languages :D   * with the Firmware :P
* I also like to problem solve code in BASIC :)   * And type-in Type-Ins! :D

Flynn's H.E.R.O. port was really, really sleek. I just wanted to say that :)

Pity he dropped out of CPC development...

I have Repton 3 for my Elk, but I could never really get into the game.

Oh yes! However the most beautiful version I ever saw runs on CBS colecovision. (I had that before the CPC, about 1984).

Yeah! That's the price you pay for reproduction. So be careful ;)

From memory I did enjoy it - used to get freaked out when I was 8 years old being chased around by the green psychotic monster, especially when every time the Acorn made a sound the game would momentarily pause so I would poo myself a little more especially if said monster was close to me  :D I don't think it was as good as the original though. The one I never liked too much was Around The World in 40 Screens...
