I did not answer for a long time. There was much else to do. I was working on a new game. I've already done all the graphics. I've made all the levels with my new level editor. This time for PC. I just love to do Editors!  ;D But I need to transfer everything to the game itself. I have not done anything for more than a month and a half. >:( The new game will be my better version of Super Cobra. Of course, if I manage to do it. :D


Will we ever see a Super Cobra port?  Perhaps 90% of Scramble source can be re-used for that?  or a physical release (wishful thinking)?


I don't like Super Cobra. It's ugly and weird for me. :) I will do my own version. Super Mamba! :laugh:


Hej PuzCPC, your game looks fantastic and was among my favourites back in the olden days. Well done!


My too. But it was too hard for me and I watched others more, than I played myself. :D

Taking into consideration that it's made in Basic, It's very good!! I wonder if he used a similar scrolling method like me at Scramble.

Oooohhhhh !!!!


Super Cobra was just OK, I have to agree with you.
What was the other clone with the submarine called?
Saw that again yesterday but I can't remember the title.

Yes! It will be a new game if I manage to do it. I'll use the same code as Scramble. With many changes.

Interesting. For this two games, I did not know it existed. It will need to be tested. :)
Is there any other clone except these three?

Really strange. The game works with Monster Arcade joystick and MSX adapter. Both buttons work correctly. But no other game seems to work. Only Scramble and C4CPC menu works with this combo. Wonder what can be causing it? Neither button will work with other games.


And thanks for a marvellous port of Scramble 👍

@PuzCPC this was the first game that I loaded into my 464 and I primarily obtained TapDancer and a car cassette adapter in order to play it. As I mentioned in my intro thread, this is a masterpiece of programming and also tremendous fun! Thank you for sharing this with the CPC community and especially for free!  :o

I look forward to seeing your future efforts - if this stellar effort is anything to go by, we're in store for some gems.  :)

Last weekend we had a couple of friends visiting us, bringing their Amiga and Xbox. Then we played retro games. Me on my CPC of course.  :)  First time I gave Scramble a proper go. I know the game well from the arcade, but was never able to reach that far.
On the CPC though, I got through all the levels, though I missed the base at the end.

But man that was fun! Even funnier is that I never actually realized, that the LCD game my brother had as a kid; "Cosmic Scramble" (never noticed the name), was in fact an LCD version of Scramble. So as I progressed through the levels of your Amstrad CPC Scramble, I recognized the levels from that LCD game, which was somewhat of a nostalgic booster.  :D

Your CPC Scramble game is just another example of a great game we should have had looong time ago.  :)  But better late than never!!!  Really well done!  And thanks for the nostalgic trip.

After about ten months of learning and coding it's finally here, my first game in ASM.

This game is just amazing! I really love it. Imho one of the best arcade ports on the CPC.

Boy did I have fun with this one tonight.

Took me two hours, but I finally managed to do a loop of this excellent game!
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. The usual drill.

Final score: 41,320

Now I'm gonna put it to rest though!
