How about making a "CLASSIC" & "WORTH TO PLAY" collection of Amstrad Games?

(1/14) > >>

Hi Everybody!

 I know that nowadays you can find large compilations of Amstrad software (like cpcgames cd,ghostware collection etc), and especially when it comes to games, we are talking for THOUSANDS of them!
 Of course, some collections are bundled with very good interfaces (for example cpcgames cd) that allow easy filtering and search by name, year, genre etc, BUT the problem is that, even if there is a description or screenshots, NOTHING can tell you how GOOD a game ACTUALLY is, until you play it!
So, instead of anyone trying each game one by one ,out of these HUGE compilations, i suggest to try and create a smaller, and thus, easiest to manage and search "WORTH TO PLAY" list, based on the actual experience of playing a game that we liked it! .
I have already started such a public list some time ago, which can be updated on regular basis!
Mind also that such a list can be a VERY good solution for playing games on real Amstrad CPC equipped with a M4 board or USIfAC II or any other device, that can load games, either from files or dsk images! ;-)

So, if anyone played a game and thinks it's "classic" or worth mentioning to others to play it, please feel free to do it!

No Worth to Play collection would be complete without a Dizzy game so either Treasure Island Dizzy or Dizzy, Prince of the Yolkfolk.

Or Magicland, my personal favourite!

Liartes:
Hello,


I would rate Rebelstar as a worth to play game on CPC, there is few tactical games on CPC and this one have a good rythm and replayability.

ComSoft6128:
ATF!


The Advanced Tactical Fighter might have looked like an insect but the gameplay was absorbing :)
