Re:

Well, I'm not posh and I owned a CPC. And Rodney from Only Fools & Horses is the very antithesis of posh and he used one too. But I know you Amstrad knockers are only joshing really - and after all, when a basic modern mobile phone contains 10 times the processing power of the C64, Spectrum and CPC...

Erm... as one of the bashees I'd just like to point out that I'm not taking offence to the bashing and actually quite enjoy the banter that comes with it... Anyway, back on topic: Great CPC Games: - Get Dexter La Abadia del Crimen (if you are fluent in Spanish...) Bumpy Island of Dr Destructo Skweek...

I use Caprice mostly myself but I would also recommend Winape if you want to run any of the Plus range.

Hi! I'm an Amstrad Fan and one of my recent Ebay wins (well, recent being about two months ago!) was a bulk lot of Disk Amstrad games for a reasonable £22 inc p+p. Amongst the many games were boxed Disk versions of Marsport and Dun Darach. Instinct suggests that these are particularly rare based o...

Picked it up yesterday from WHS in Glasgow (Argyle Street branch only apparently if anyone's looking for it). I very rarely get Games TM now so most of the content is new to me. A great read and it looks great on the bookcase.

I know it was mentioned in the isometric round-up in ish 28 but I'd love to see a full article on 'La Abadia Del Crimen' - it looks and plays fantistically especially on the CPC - the only stumbling block being that its all in Spanish... still it is playable in English thanks to the MSX2 remake... i...
