New CPC libraries seem to be popping up on almost a daily basis. The latest to come to my notice is Scull PD, based in Glasgow. Scull PD operates both a tape and disk service.

The arrangement is that you supply the media plus a copying charge and a few days later it will be back, crammed full of goodies. There are 12 disks and 22 cassettes in the library, and the numbers are growing all the time. An SAE will get you a copy of the latest list.

Scull has obtained permission to use demos of commercial games such as The Untouchables, which appeared on the cover cassette of Amstrad Action over Christmas (The latest issue of AA is available from all good newsagents, and at only £1.45 it's a bargain too!). Many of the listings from the Type-Ins section of AA also appear in Scull. So if you can't be bothered to type them in yourselves, you know a man who can...

Mac is one of the programs from the library. No, it's not a Macintosh emulator for the CPC - that has yet to see the light of day. Mac is one of those maze-type games where you wander around picking up keys and dodging loads of nasties.

In terms of looks, Mac scores well. It has big bold graphics, and reasonably cute characters. The amazing thing is that Mac is written almost entirely in bog-standard BASIC! I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing in the game yet, but I'm sure I'll figure it out...

Lots and lots of utilities, routines and other bits and pieces came crammed on the Scull disk. There's loads of stuff that can be used to spice up your own programs. You know the sort of thing - fancy screen fade programs and italised character sets. Best of all though, all these trillions of programs will cost you just a £1!

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.
