Nick Alexander, MD at Virgin games, has watched the company grow over the past three years. Its reputation for being one of the best was reflected in a recent ACU poll when readers voted them Number One software house. This is quite an achievement for a company which has only released two Amstrad titles. There is a lot more brewing, partly due to the takeover of two rival software houses - New Generation Software and leisure Genius.

Virgin has three titles poised for release. The first is Shogun, which initially looks a bit like Sorcery but requires more strategy with nasties which can be won over.

The second title is Atlantic Challenge which will be released, programming deadlines willing, to coincide with the second attempt to break the record for a sea crossing of the Atlantic by a fare-paying passenger. Once again the passenger is Virgin boss Richard Branson. The third game is Dan Dare, based on the Eagle comics character - this is Strangeloopesque. There are 128 rooms divided into four main sections.

Each section contains a piece of a bridge which has to be built so that you can rescue a colleague. This looks like it will be the biggest Virgin success yet - the Commodore 64 version has taken two years to develop.

With the Leisure Genius takeover Virgin have inherited two titles for release soon. Monopoly should whet the appetite of any prospective property barons and Scalextric will tempt budding racing drivers. The New Generation buy-out has sired Trashmam, Travel with Trashman and Jonah Barrington Squash. Trashman is in Mode 1, cute and will be ready for release very soon. Virgin are bound to be big on the Amstrad scene.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
