In itself, the CPC should have been made with 128k only, 64k is ridiculous considering the amount of colors the CPC has to store in memory.

X-Out ? I love this game on CPC, it's one of the best shooters we have.

But the c64 version is really great. It's one of my favorite game on this machine, i have the tape version in a compilation. Way more polished than the turrican series graphically speaking on the C64, and with beautiful effects.
Yeah, X-out looks very polished. Great game. And yes, X-out looks quite good on the CPC. No music though. [ Show youtube player ]

This guy has alot of comparisons
