AMSTRAD CPC - TO SCROLL OR NOT TO SCROLL

I used to think it was strange that Commodore 64 and Speccy owners always claimed that their respective machines were far superior to the Amstrad CPC? I mean, c’mon, had they seriously never seen or played the likes of Wec Le-Mans, Roboco...

Retro Gamer

Loved Retro Gamer in the early days, but for the past two/three years, I just find there's far too much generic content. I 'get it' though, they're basically trying to appeal to the masses and I don't blame them if it brings in m...

Super smooth sideways scrolling and great graphics are nothing new to the CPC these days. CPC bunnies expect the graphics and scrolling to be good as a matter of course, so a game needs to have a little bit more going on underneath than just flashy g...
