This brings back memories of a spotty-faced youth wandering into an old arcade and discovering ... yet another version of Galaxians. 10p in slot, lasts as many seconds, pours coke over machine and exits stage left.

The brief instructions and hi-score table come up in the biggest text I have seen on the 464. Even Granny would be able to read it from the other side of the living-room.
Taking over the controls of your laserbase, you notice that moving to extreme left and right boosts you a little in the air. There must be some use for this. But wait - What's that coming out of the starry sky ?

Weird things dive at you, making as much noise as the Ed's little Jap sports car pelting down the M25. They drop wee bombs on you, thus proving you're not as immortal as you thought you were. Some really cunning ones even shoot sideways.

There are shotgun-type blasts to rattle your tail feathers, and bombs which don't take quite so much notice of the laws of gravity as the last lot, and descend slowly, exploding into a billion pieces of glittering shrapnel (well, at least six) which totally muck up your thoughts on what was and wasn't a safe place to be at the time. The score for blasting them is hardly worth the trouble.

 

Meanwhile strange beasties are still squealing around above, dropping little messages on you. By now most people have the brains to push the fire button. Peow! One shot. Breathtaking ohgodhurryup pause for the next shot. Darn! Too long - another one in the eye for immortality.
After a while this whopping great sprite slides on. This, methinks, is supposed to be some giant psychedelic sparrow. To me, it looks more like the north end of a south-bound baboon; but interpretations vary.
After pumping so many photons into it's ... er tail, that you're beginning to think that it's indestructable, it goes "Pouf!" (as they say in France) and increments your score accordingly.

Now for your secret weapon: Pushing up on the joystick causes your ship to develop the dreaded photo-orgasmotronic field; absolutely impervious to even south- bound baboons. While you float upwards, and things come downwards, the bits you meet on the way come off a lot worse than you do. Shame you can only pull that stunt a few times.

Eventually even the hottest sky-jockeys become history, and you consign your monica (only room for three letters here) to the annals of the high score table. Then you do it all over again until bed time.

QUE DIT LA LOI FRANÇAISE:

L'alinéa 8 de l'article L122-5 du Code de la propriété intellectuelle explique que « Lorsque l'œuvre a été divulguée, l'auteur ne peut interdire la reproduction d'une œuvre et sa représentation effectuées à des fins de conservation ou destinées à préserver les conditions de sa consultation à des fins de recherche ou détudes privées par des particuliers, dans les locaux de l'établissement et sur des terminaux dédiés par des bibliothèques accessibles au public, par des musées ou par des services d'archives, sous réserve que ceux-ci ne recherchent aucun avantage économique ou commercial ». Pas de problème donc pour nous!

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.
