That's true for Amiga and any most recent platforms. Back in the time you could only compare Spectrum/C64/CPC versions between them or to older platforms, and it was better playing 25 fps games than older versions which were worse, sometimes even with 8 px scrolls.

Haven't seen it on Amstrad. I already had an Amiga when it came out.

Don't forget that Zombi was out in 1986 on Amstrad CPC so it's truly a classic. Do you really think that if Bard's Tale would have been released four years later (in 1989 instead of 1985) with the same features it would have been a classic? Not sure... Also Wasteland was initially made for Apple II, and was not a C64 game franchise, but I agree that it didn't exist on Amstrad.

As action/adventure game - not graphic/text, Get Dexter (Ere Informatique's Crafton & Xunk, in French) was also a classic released in 1986 for the CPC. The first was ported to ST in 1987 and the second released in 1988 was never ported to any other platforms.

Les Passagers du Vent? I agree with you, but it had good graphics.
