The Amstrad is what i played dizzy on, (TUCA, magicland, fastfood and kwick snax) my aunts computer whenever i was visiting. I only had Spellbound on the C64.

I never knew of the computer had a green screen or it was the monitor.. lol

Amstrads must be a Norfolk/Suffolk thing eh Meth?

Once again, my Mum always fobbed me off, she told me that the green screen monitor was apparently better than any colour screen that you could buy at the time....personally, i look back to them times and i just think we were the poor kids on the block :dizzy_frown:

Trouble is i remember we had a game which needed to be in colour. i don't remember what it was but part of the game was unlocking doors using the correct colour key... pretty pointless when everything is green!!!

I have to say the AmstradCPC464 was the mutts nuts.

I got the adapter to play it on a real TV. with color and everything :shocked:
But I still put it back to my green screen.
I think I may still have that in my loft. Time to get the duster out and educate the kids that waiting 10mins for the game to load with a cassette is alot better than there instant online, all singing and all dancing COD.
Something tells me they are going to think Im older than I am :v2_dizzy_cry:
:v2_dizzy_yahoo:Keep Trying:v2_dizzy_yahoo:

I've still got a game called Secret Agent from Apogee where you have to find keys of different colours to unlock doors ...and shoot guards that change into different guards.

Wasn't there a fish game called James Pond?
