Title: Need some help getting some games
Post by: Zetr0 on 03:44, 13 February 13
Hello my fellow CPC'ers

I am putting a couple of CPC machines together for the event in Margate (UK) next week - GEEK 2013

The even focuses on lots of lovely retrolicious stuff and is open to schools through the week and the public over the weekend, if you are in area next weekend you should check GEEK out (http://www.geek2013.co.uk/)

________________________


Now that shameless plug is out of the way the following systems I have ready

CPC464 + DD-1 + 3.5" FDD
CPC6128 + external 3.5" FDD


I am having trouble getting some games that the show wants to feature

Pipemania
Tombs (the one featured in retro gamer)
Manic Minor
Jet Set Willy

I would also like some suggestions for puzzle games too


If anyone can help I would be in your debt,

Thanks for reading.

I can't help you get any of the games, but would like to suggest Spindizzy as well.

Why - do you need them to be originals?

Have you tried the downloads section on the top menu?

Also good ol' Cpc-power site probably has working versions:
CPC-POWER, sauvegarde du patrimoine de l'Amstrad CPC (http://cpc-power.com/)

Click on the little english flag on the right to get english menus  ;)
Donno if its still needed but you may still need to be logged in to download over there.
EDIT: sometimes its actually better to get the non-original "cracked" versions as some games can be highly protected against copying.

Anyways, puzzle(-ish) game suggestions:
- Puzznic
- Skweek
- Zap'T'Balls
- Arkanoid + 2
- Bubble Bubble (check the new version out)
- Pick N Pile
- Split Personalities
- Marble Madness
- Trailblazer
- Boulder Dash
- Tetris
- Deflector
- Pacmania
..

So many great games to choose from. Better take some classics as well like Donkey Kong & Gryzor and even some common Amsoft titles like Oh Mummy & Bridge-It. Sure those Amsoft usually arnt that amazing but you can put the joystick into the hands of a 5 year old kid and the kid will know what to do in a game like Bridge-It.
