There have countless Tetris clones appearing in the public domain, most of which have played and looked better than the original CPC version from Mirrorsoft (which, and let's face it, isn't very difficult). Power Tetris is the Rolls Royce of them all. With a name that suggests it is written by Richard Fairhurst , it not only gives the best in-game music, graphics and playability but also a twoplayer mode option. That's not all, the programmer has gone one better than that, with a special lead, two CPC's can be connected together, giving four players at any one time.

The one-player mode is just like normal Tetris, whereas the competitive edge is thrown in. Every time a player gets more than one row, the same amount is added to the other playerts) stacks. Instead of the usual, who gets the most rows, it
is replaced by a frantic race to stay at the bottom of the screen. Even though it is fun, there are times when your opponent will lose just as you are getting warmed up, forcing a premature game ending.

Power Tetris is easily the best Tetris version yet, especially fun if you know someone close to you who you can link your CPC to. As soon as the AA team got their rands on it, they were hooked. Friendships forged over the years where shattered, deadlines were missed ,furniture was thrown... the two-player mode takes one of the classics of gameplay and makes it better still.

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.
