Yep, both versions suck

The Atari Lynx version is teh greatest IMO/

What about Nemesis for teh Amstrad, Retroman? I neve rseen it, mind posting screenies and impressions of taht game? (and I think Salamander/Life FOrce was released too, so post comments and screenies about that one too )

It might be time for a 'CPC THread'

Well, I can say for sure that I own Salamander for CPC (Original), not sure about Nemesis ..... canīt check right now cause I cannot find the disk box, where I have put my CPC originals, but I post a scan as soon as I find them

Shadow of the Beast was the last CPC game I bought (or was Bloodwych?) and it looks better on a green monitor than on a colour one

And here goes the Salamander pic. After playing it again on Caprice, yes, is a lot faster than what I remembered

I already had the Spectrum version for sometime, and I even told Akira about it when I got it. I won't comment about it , as I don't even like the Miggy game that much...
But what I found really weird is that the word "Shadow of the" never appears in the game (It's like the game is only called "Beast" ) , and there's NO Psygnosis or Reflections credits in the game!

I just got the Amstrad version with the pack of games I've just downloaded, so I'll may comment about it later..

I have a little more to say about the CPC, but I'll say it in the other CPC thread....

Not weird, thatīs cause GREMLIN had the rights on the Amstrad and Spectrum Versions (look advert posted above)

Thanks for posting the CPC pics. I can officially say it sucks The Commodore versions were SO great!

I still might end up buying them. What about R-Type? I almost nab that one on eBay...

Nope, it's like the spectrum version. If you want a good CPC shooter try Silkworm
