|★ AMSTRAD CPC ★ GAMESLIST ★ SPACE INVADERS (JASON CHARLESWORTH) (c) YOUR COMPUTER ★|
A long time ago in the good old days when computers were real computers shaped like dog biscuits, and 16K Rampacks were real wobbly 16K Rampacks there existed a game that took the world by storm and choked many an arcade machine on 10p pieces.
It was of course Space Invaders. In it you had to have a really mean" and vicious streak, for your task was nothing less than the protection of the Earth and all mankind from nasty (and very thick) aliens. Unlike most recent games this one definitely does not feature thousands of rooms to wander in.
Now this game is available for the Amstrad by just typing in the listings. This version has all the favourite features — marching invaders, defences, mothership and of course your ship to defend earth with. All graphics are large and colourful and in the case of the invaders
most are also animated by using the flashing colour facility on the Amstrad.
In the game you must destroy all the alien forces. You do this by shooting them but all the time they get lower and lower and if they get too low you lose a life. They also drop bombs but you can hide behind the defences to get out of their way.
Each bomb that hits the defences chips a little away so any protection is gradually removed.
To set up the game, type in Listing 1 and save it to tape with SAVE "INVADERS". Next type in Listing 2 and run it. Correct any errors found and when it assembles it without errors save the code after Invaders with SAVE "CODE",B,30000,4400
The game may then be played by typing RUN"".

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.
