|★ AMSTRAD CPC ★ GAMESLIST ★ COMPILATION: THE WINNING TEAM (c) DOMARK/TENGEN ★|
More tastes catered for than Golden Wonder in this cracking combination.
Domark has done it again with this one. JL J Another superb collection of classic Tengen coin-op conversions at a real value-for-money price. From zany humour, through puzzling, to action packed shooty, it's all here in one superb compilation, kicking off with the frenetic cartoon action of Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters. You know the form, or you should anyway; the robot monsters have taken a posse of females hostage on their space station and, it's up to you and a friend to get blasting in outer space in a desperate effort to get them back.
Next up on the agenda is another hatful of comic action in the fast and furious APB. As officer BOB, cleaning up the streets of louts and bums has never been better, even though there are some hardened criminals out there who need to be dealt with.
The car chases are superb, as are the graphics throughout, while the extra weapons on offer make the work of the lawman an absolute joy. The humour abounds but doesn't effect the excellent game-play. If you haven't tried this one yet, be sure you do in the near future, it's a winner.
Lovers of the good old brain-teasers are well and truly catered for on this compilation with the award-winning Klax.
The game is simplicity itself, just collect the coloured tiles as they fall down the tray to make lines of tiles of the same colour, horizontally, vertically or diagonally. It's simplicity itself to start with, but becomes monstrously difficult as you proceed, as well as being totally addictive. An absolute must for puzzle freaks.
Keep an eye on your reserves as you fight your way through the alien hordes and make sure you master the controls to ensure the future of Mankind in this excellent shoot-em-up. Last up is the highly acclaimed explosive future sport of Cyberball. Lead your cybernetic robots out onto the field and do your worst against some devilish opponents. Use the exploding ball to decimate the opposition's defence but. just be sure you're nowhere near it when it goes up!
Superb graphics and excellent gameplay make Cyberball a real must in the strategy stakes and an excellent feature of this very, very smart compilation.

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.
