Starring the Amstrad CPC
« on: 13:00, 04 November 21 »
hi,


I was interested to see what movies the Amstrad CPC Starred in - and found this website:


"Starring The Computer" http://starringthecomputer.com/computer.html?c=148


(Commando Ninja - this girl has lots of cool things in her room, TMNT Van, cool posters and Amstrad CPC6128)

Any other appearances that you've seen not present on that website?  I am surprised there were no Grange Hill episodes with Amstrads in them (or was there?).

For sure: ThereĀ“s one as atrezzo in some episodes of The IT Crowd.
Not so sure: I think i saw one quite quick on screen on one episode of the second season of Danger 5. I should rewatch the series to make sure it was there.

Albeit not a movie, but Eastenders definitely had one in Colin & Barry's place circa 86-87.

Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB 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?
