Nice review.. but... is the whole game only about "shooting chickens" ??
What is the final goal? Isn't this getting boring very soon?

You have the same idea than mine, so what about a Cpc Plus Cartridge "Special edition"?

That's a bit more work. If it's on Cartridge, it's supposed to make nice use of all/most the Plus features.  :)

Of course, you guess what i was thinking of. 'special edition' will have to use cpc plus features, and not 4096 colours only.

That's right. Quick brain-storm what do we have...
- Raster-Scan-line interrupt (allows shading)
- Hardware sprites of course (limited in number)
- Sound *could* be played using DMA (hardest part, need new player!)
- More devices (analogue joystick support)
- Enhanced banking (of use in some cases at least)
- 8 bit printer port (hardcopy of you high-score list, haha!)
- additional screen parts to display bars (number of life points, hits and so on) using 2nd screen

And more...  isn't all that work-2-do frustrating  :laugh:

I guess I forgot half of the new Plus features anyway.  ;) :)

Nice answer :)

Or print out amusing pictures that you collect during game such as in the Gameboy Colour edition of Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (I can't remember if the Gameboy printer even had another use...)   :)

Haha! I guess printing was a long time by far underestimated on CPC!


What's about some "Printer Music" instead of "Drive Music".  :laugh:

You could always let the occasional go by and then shoot it when it's on the other side of the screen  :laugh:  Or just be creative with those Chickens.
