Arcade ports/emulators
« on: 2022.August.07. 21:02:40 »
...following my previous post about Wizball, I'd also like to express another request to the programming gurus of the forum!
:mrgreen:

There have been recently released very nice ports/emulators of classic ancient arcade games for other Z80 systems, like Pacman and Space Invaders for the Speccy, or Phoenix and Scramble for the Amstrad:

Especially the Speccy Pacman emulator could bypass the infamous color clash on the EP! Also CPC Phoenix, which comes in two different flavours on the Amstrad (lo and hi-res, due to color restrictions), could take advantage of the 16-color 320X256 mode on the EP and both could be almost arcade-perfect conversions!
;)

Please, think about it!!!

Pacman is EXACTLY what I was thinking of!
Thumbs up and many thanks!!!

I had seen this one, very nice version indeed, but I was talking about the "real thing"!
But anyway, thank you, SlashNet!
