    Default Amstrad games

    What do you think is the best game for this old computer. I'm finding ghosts and Goblins good at the moment.

    Not really any good software on Amstrad CPC, most of them were conversions of Spectrum games, and they were bad to start off with.

    Also, this computer didn't have much (not at all actually) impact on US soil.

    Mind you, Britain got it the wrong way round way back, should have been Amstrad being the popular computer, not Spectrum, maybe the software woud have been better then.

    It seems a lot of the CPC-specific stuff comes from France where the computer did way better comparatively. Unless you speak french, it may be hard to get into.

    That being said, if you have a CPC and are in the US, where in the hell did you find it?

    There were so many titles for the Amstrad,many were of course were released on the Speccy and C64 simultaneously.Despite being a Speccy fan i can recomend a few
    Ghost `n Goblins is good all formats you might also want to try Head over Heals,Jetset Willy,Chuckie Egg,Kokotoni Wilf and look for `ULTIMATE` games like Knightlore and Alien 8,
