Amstrad CPC 8-bit exclusive games


Have you ever wondered what Amstrad CPC games were exclusive to the Amstrad CPC? The list below is what I know of, some of the games below are truly awful, but then again, there's quite a few games I wouldn't have missed for the world. This is by no means a definitive list of exclusives, and in most cases, you can find these games on the Amiga, ST and Consoles, but you won't find 'em on the ZX Spectrum or C64 (That's if I've done my homework correctly). 

There's some real classic amongst this lot, Bumpy is brilliant, as is Bactron and D.Day is a masterclass in arcade strategy. I also found a game I never knew existed in 'Dempsey and Makepeace' a classic cop series set in the 80s. But the jewel in the crown for me is Get Dexter. Star Driver needs to be checked out if you've never played it, it scrolls along like a mode 7 game, the scrolling technique from the SNES, and if you think you're ready for a challenge, try Builderland, it needs fast reflexes and a cool head. 

Hope you enjoy...

  2. If so, it wasn't many, and I did check, but never knew a single sole who owned one of those computers.

  3. lots of false results, just as examples : Shufflepuck cafe = amiga+atari+pc+apple ; Panza Kick Boxing = amiga+atari+snes+... ; Prehistoric 2 = gameboy ; Jim Power = amiga+atari+pcengine ... please check wikipedia ;)

  4. None of those are 8-bit computers apart from Apple? Please re-read the article. The clue is in the title...
