The way I see it was the CPC came too late for the 8bit market, and so few programmers knew all the tricks to get the very most out of the machine. The high colour low res mode was too much of a strain over the slow 8bit bus and CPU, lacking any special hardware to help it.

It looked great in screenshots, as the low res mode easily beat the Spectrum and C64 in terms of colour. But lacking any of the hardware scrolling and sprites of the C64, and the simpler but very fast graphics of the Spectrum, it usually had dreadful scrolling and slow graphics.
