Back then, the cpc was portrayed as nothing more than a glorified spectrum with an extra colour mode. It would be quite rare for a cpc game to upstage a c64 game, but it ultimately came down to how much the developer cared as there were some outright lazy ports across all the platforms. Even the spectrum could shine if the developer cared enough.

Once games like rtype,turrican,turbo outrun, anything from thalamous were seen running on c64, It was pretty obvious which 8bit platform to move onto from a spectrum. The cpc just wasnt going to cut it. I'm pretty sure any spectrum/cpc owner would have been envious of what was being put out on c64 towards the end of its life.
