Hardcore Amsoft collector? :)
I have nostalgic feelings for all Amsofttitles too, but of those on your list I particularly liked Fruit Machine, the Galactic Plaque and Roland Ahoy. I haven't tried Fu Kung in Las Vegas. Are you serious about Animal Vegetable Mineral and Bridge-It?

Did Amstrads sell with a pile of Amsoft software a one stage?

Could understand the nostaligia for those titles. Similar to the Spectrum Sinclair packages.

I got a CPC6128 form a boot sale about 5 years ago, only spent a bit of time on it but was a pretty solid computer. Had to sell it when my second child came along, as apparently it's illegal to sell your children :wink:

Kung Fu in Las Vegas does sound intersting!, and from a screenshot pretty colourful.

Sorry, I was being silly! They were the free games I got with it that I remember being absolute crap. Bridge-It in particular was painful.

My favourites are:

1. Bomb Jack
2. Roland In Time
3. Spellbound
4. Dynamite Dux
5. Werewolves of London
6. Manic Miner
7. Bubble Bobble
8. Batman
9. Gauntlet 2
10 Metrocross

P.S Fu Kung In Las Vegas isn't worth playing. It's highly frustrating and he jumps in a very weird way.
