Hurray !

v8 is out !

Those lucky enough to have an Underground Gamer account can download it from there


Oh, I think I shall finally ask someone to invite me on UG, as I am about to be shitlisted on Pleasuredome .


EDIT : This time, Loic did a tremendous work simplifying the setup process (the emulators are included, everything is nicely organized in subfolders, games load in a snap)... Brilliant !

Rejoice Folks !
Yet another update (as a reminder, each new version of GBCPC means 100 games added) !

Loic puts all his files on UG - links below (I'd rather not direct anybody to the public torrents as they are very slow).

Furthermore, those packs will soon be available as direct downloads on a French site called MicroStory
(the latter being a retro-gaming site led by a guy who calls himself BlackWolfCds).

i got most release from V9, and i have put them on phenix informatique website.

@Retro-Nerd : I have also created splitted version of TAPE games, meaning you can
load the game part by part. Go to the Phénix informatique website and check the
operation wolf split version

My main computer before the A500 was an Amstrad CPC464. I still have it, and it's in perfect working order. I claim that the best version of Head Over Heels is the CPC version, and I'm quite happy to fight to the death over that. I'll set it up again soon, and take some pics for the "first computer" thread.

This is what i use to test my splitted versions on my real CPC

Games like Robocop, Batman the movie, ghostbusters 2, dragon ninja, rambo 3, renegade, target renegade, shinobi, total recall works great in WAV format played from this little tool and a digital tape

Thumbs up phenixinformatique.com

For the direct download links to the latest GBCPC dlfrsilver was referring to, click here


One download at a time, plz.


There aren't many review sites about CPC games,
and I believe cpcgamereviews.com is one of the most browsed one
it's not a rant, but please don't trust all the stuff that's written in there
I'd say the reviewer gives rather biased, cut-down opinions most of the time.


Oh, and to make things clear Head over Heels is NOT
the only good isometric exploration/platformer on the CPC (but it may be the most difficult/complex)

Floppy disk New v. of GBCPC released !

Website hosting GBCPC is now a subsection of Kukulcan's CPC-POWER (separate game site, was part of phoenix informatique). V10 is out, and v11 approaches.
Dozens of games have been added, time to catch on if you're still using an old version.

Hint : Don't click on "Liens" if you're easily shocked .

v12 of GBCPC is out. As usual, starting one download at a time is easier on such site's bandwidth. Another 100 more games listed !

Will I make another similarly boring announcement for v13 ?
.....drum roll....

You bet I will .

v13 is out . It includes Gamebase beta enhancements and won't be proposed as an update !
In short, it is a fully reworked version.

Read on :

  • A graphic artist field !
  • A rarity field
  • A link to the software page at CPC Power
  • A download link to the clean roms
  • A review field. I will add & aggregate review scores from CPC magazines there
  • Ability to display multiple columns !
  • An "extras" sidebar for quick access to the extras
As always, plz do not hammer the dl server and don't forget to manage some room (about 7GB).

Uploaded by Idaneels on CPC Power : v14 & now v15
Both updates can be installed the usual way.

# of games, up to now : 1500. Starts to look good a number ! Apparently, Loic was also busy scanning huge manuals !

He's used to post about latest included games and other updates via his Facebook group. About this thread, I think posting here for every other minor GBCPC update is fine. Agreed ?


Have fun !
