Know only one guy, who got a CPC. He wanted a C-64, like all others. His parents bought him a CPC, they thought it was the "right" machine.
But I did

Hey, what's with all this CPC bashing?

It was a great machine:
-I can't ever remember having played a bad game on mine ( unlike every other computer I've owned )
-The hardware design was a brilliantly done ( a large part of why so many games were better than the headline specs would suggest )
-V. clever 'os' & basic made this a genuinely useful 8bit machine, too.

How on Earth Amstrad of all companies came up with such a good computer is beyond me.

There's plenty of other great 8bit platforms about but I can't help feeling the CPC gets given an unfairly hard time.
I think that's why CPC owners seem to hog forums 'defending' it.

Rant over.

CPC was a great machine, I loved all my others for different reasons. One awful conversion on the CPC was Wizball though! It was extremely bad! Especially as the Speccy and C64 versions were good!

THANK YOU for reminding me of Pinball Magic. What a weird pinball on Amiga, too. Like, it had NO music whatsoever, only stupid sound fx, wtf? So shitty, but still traumatizing back in the day. After Pinball Dreams and co., what were they thinking releasing this? LOL!

Pinball Magic = 1989 CPC, 1990 Amiga
Pinball Dreams = 1992

are you guys sure rsn8887 doesnt just mean

"after we had pinball dreams etc, looking back on pinball magic, you wonder why they bothered?"


rather than implying that pinball magic came after pinball dreams

Pinball Magic have really good physics (even Amstrad and DOS version) and game is not too slow or too fast.

Sorry for confusion, I indeed didn't mean to imply any release date sequence.

I simply got Pinball Magic on the Amiga way after I had already played Pinball Dreams to death.

Pinball Magic was missing music and "coolness" like no other pinball.
I agree, it felt somehow like pinball, ok, but minus the sights AND sounds

Anyone ever played that Microsoft Pinball Arcade pack ( http://www.microsoft.com/games/pinball/screenshots.htm )? - Same effect lol

I think Pinball Magic is okay-ish, not awful really, but as you say it doesn't really compare to the later pinball games.

Try the Sharp X68000 Japanese version, called "Argos No Senshi", the best port of Rygar.
