Review – Spy vs Spy for Amstrad CPC

Superman, Spiderman, Batman. Comic book legends and serious heroes that you can count on to save the day…. Well thanks to Mad magazine, they created a comic strip that has become legend for quite the opposite reason and its popularity is huge.

Review – Burger Time for Amstrad CPC

I don’t know much about the background of this game, but judging from what I observed I’d say this game was developed at one of those Amstrad CPC demo parties of yesteryear. 1995 to be exact, where the coders ZAK, ZIK and Rainbird of Futures group probably had a pig out session on junk food […]

Preview – Pinball Dreams for Amstrad CPC

Over 24 years ago, March 1992, Pinball Dreams was released by 21st Century Entertainment on the 16-bit Amiga home computer, receiving high praise and critical acclaim from magazine reviews across Europe.

Review – Frogger for Amstrad Plus

A frog jumping on logs avoiding obstacles to get to his home doesn’t sound like an interesting game but Frogger is an arcade classic.  I’m surprised Frogger was never released commercially on the Amstrad CPC.  It was a massive success back in the day, at the video arcades.  Frogger was launched onto the video game […]

Review – Amnesia for Amstrad CPC

Amstrad CPC Arcade Game Conersions

Any serious gamer would no doubt remember games like Pacman, Space Invaders, Galaga, Asteroids and Frogger. Created around the 1970s to early 1980s, these video games are still highly revered to this very day, the so called ‘Golden Age’ of the arcade video games industry. Ah, it was a time when video game arcade machines would be […]

Amstrad CPC Gaming Gems

Some Amstrad CPC gaming gems that flew under the radar. What makes a good game stand out from the rest? Some may say amazing graphics and sprites, while others will argue playability or smooth scrolling, addictiveness and even great tunes and sound effects. During the Amstrad CPC gaming era of the 1980’s and early 1990’s generally, the biggest […]

Adidas Championship Football Amstrad CPC Review

The 2016 UEFA European Championship tournament is underway right now, unfortunately it is getting more attention for the fan  violence off the pitch than the actual competition. So to cast our minds away from all of that craziness, focus on the football and i look back at a soccer / football game released during the time […]
