Hello everyone!


Although many of you may have already seen it, we would like to introduce and give a special thanks to all our sponsors, one by one, who year after year help us to improve the contest with their awesome prizes.  ;D


First of all, one of our classic partners is back again this year as a sponsor!
The prize for the Best Arcade Game is awarded by Arcade Vintage Museum with an amount of 100€ and 5 tickets for their museum in Ibi, Alicante.

I'm sure you'll all look forward to visiting it! So, what are you waiting for to win the prize?

We are pleased to welcome as a sponsor AUA (Amigos y Usuarios Amstrad), which gives the prize for the most voted game by the public, with a prize of 200€. That's a lot of money!


Yes, you, gamers, will vote for the best AUA game. This is something that has never been done at CPCRetroDev. This is something we are very excited about, we're sure you are too! :o
We will explain how you can do it later on.

You missed having a category for BASIC games in the contest, didn't you? We do too, we have a special affection for them.

Since 2016 we haven't seen it, but this year Sakis, one of our most repeated #CPCRetroDev contestants, has teamed up with SdA (Somos de Amstrad), another of the great Amstrad communities, to revive the BASIC Category. They will give a total sum of 100€, distributed in two prizes of 60€ and 40€ respectively, to the two best games developed only in BASIC, without the use of external libraries. Wow! ;D

Please, everybody welcome Trusiga (Ramón Nafría), who this year has decided to sponsor for his first time the #CPCRetroDev.
This great developer and teacher returns to the origins of video games where he grew up to award the prize of 100€ to the Most Original Final Product presented in this edition.

We would love that this year you give the games a spectacular touch!  ;)

And submitted (and paranoidly checked to see if I forgot anything), as you can see I submitted it way early its only 4:48AM I had over 5 hours left that I could have used :P.
Sadly the game is not bug free (not that can ever be expected) but hopefully it doesn't crash out too often (not enough time to dig into that one, must not break anything!).

FYI, AMSTRED has since been disqualified from the contest for two reasons:

  • The submitted CDT file doesn't load.
  • The game attempts to load additional data after the main program has loaded.

Are you aware that 1. and 2. are exclusive (XOR) statements?

Yes. :) I should have clarified that they also submitted a DSK image, which does load - but the rules state that a working CDT file must be provided.

i guess kraken lack of time to crunch screens and do a proper one-load file, but anyway, it's the one i prefer anyway. I may patch this too to remove loading :D
ps: all 6 screens of 17K can be crunched in 6K with ZX0 so it's possible
use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p
