"The" software repository?
« on: 02:30, 26 February 20 »
Hi all,
I'm SUPER new to the CPC.
Is there a "known best" software repository for the CPC on the internet?
I have done some looking, but have not come up with a lot...

Thanks in advance!   ;D

EDIT: Oh! I just noticed that a score attack competition based on my game is currently the front-page story on the site!

ftp.nvg.unit.no/pub/cpc or one of its mirror used to be a good place too.


Recently a updated link to the game database with a lot of information and tons of software were posted here on the forum. I think it had was about 20+ GB... Can anyone help him with the correct name and link?

"Amstrad CPC softwares compressed in compact archives"

Although there's no information like the one you can find in CPC Power.

I also like the reviews here: http://cpcgamereviews.com/
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica, The Dawn of Kernel and Kitsune`s Curse for the CPC.

If you like my games and want to show some appreciation, you can always buy me a coffee.

It's Gamebase CPC, and the most recent version (V33) is around  31GB in size when compressed.

Here is a link to discussion of Gamebase V33 on the CPCWiki forum:

It contains a lot more than just the cassette and disc images, though - screenshots, music, and scans of the inlays, manuals, cassettes and discs.
