Well AMC isn't a good game in general, still wonder why you mention it here. For Gryzor: Giant pixels, no scrolling. Sure, better than the crappy C64 game but far away from decent the NES/MSX ports.
The Atari 800 XL was technically good enough, sadly they didn't ported enough 8-bit classics for this machine.
For the "better" CPC colors: A lot of machines were sold with a green monitor.
