Tried and failed (many times) to finish Professional Ski Simulator.  Piste 6 kicked my ass.

Personally, I'm playing a lot of Jarlac and Pentomino. I love these modern games.

We had a couple of friends over 2 days ago, bringing their retro computers, just to sit and play the retro games all day. So I finally had some time to catch up.
Finally got to try that new Scramble game. Exactly as I hoped it would be. Well done!

I used my CPC6128 this time. Had previously used my Amstrad Plus which didn't wanna load a lot of the new games, including Shadows of Sergoth. My CPC6128 didn't want to either. So I still haven't checked out this game.  :(
I wonder why it won't run. My only suspession is the Megaflash which might eat some memory that is needed, despite only 1 ROM was flashed. Or maybe I have an old buggy version that has since been fixed?

Also finally got to check out the Pinball Dreams preview which didn't run on my Plus either, but ran fine on my CPC6128. Very impressive, as everyone has already said long ago. Cool to play on a 40" LCD using an X-RGB Mini Framemeister.  8)  And cool to see my C64 mate with wide open eyes and mouth.....  "....is that Amstrad?!"    ;D

Cheers!

I cracked with Flyspy and used the cheats! Infinite everything! I felt sad.....


So now i've completed it, I feel less sad. I'd never have done it without the cheats!


What should I play next? Been popping in and out of The Sentinel!

I recently replayed through Myth:History in the Making and moved on to Extreme (after having to diagnose why my CPC was misbehaving)

So I discovered Oberon 69 last week, so decided it would be fun to try to learn the game.
Hoo boy, does it have GOOD FACES.

It only takes 20 minutes? I liked the game back in the day (shhh, don't tell @chinnyhill10 !), but I don't remember progressing much!

OTOH the final boss seems ridiculous with that predictable jump...

Also, what the f does the guy say at the end? "ha-ha, ha-hah *&^$&*#@?"

I think he's actually saying "I',I',I',I',I',I'm Bad!" because you are a bad enough dude.

Currently playing Impossamole.
Finished the first four stages, but the Bermuda level really is next to near impossible at the best of times.

Hopefully I'll get more practice in at the weekend and finally scratch it off the bucket list.
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1GB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

Not been using my CPC much lately but I've been playing Zoe Robinson's Roland Goes Rescuing. It's quite good.

For once my CPC is set up, and I have been playing a lot of Pinball Dreams in the new year, enjoying the smooth 50 hz display. (And still pondering why so many people are seemingly satisfied with 50 fps youtube videos and emulation on their 60 hz PC monitor).
It's getting more and more rare to re-experience that childhood mood we had when gaming on the CPC, but Pinball Dreams did it!  :)

I'm only allowed play Pinball Dreams when the house is empty due to the game rage inducing experience that is the Ignition table.  :laugh: But yeah, it's pretty awesome and was well worth the wait. I didn't even bother with the one table demo. Waited til the day it came out and regretted nothing. :D

I've spent this evening enjoying the rather marvellous Super Tongue Dino from the most recent #CPCRetroDev
