The Last UFO - Amstrad Exclusive game WIP

It is a true pleasure to continue a game I have for some time wanted to continue. The Last UFO borrows some influence from a past game called "The Covenant" for the CPC.  Sadly this game had a major conversion-error from square pixels to wide pixels on the /CPC which meant you could never complete the game..

The Last UFO is a game well suited for the Amstrad CPC Computer.
This screenshot shows using a PC/Mac program called "Tiled" a wonderful map editor.

Concept - Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney for CPC

A quick test to see how the game Phoenix Wright  - Ace Attorney might look on the Amstrad.

Prefer the Mode 1 (4 colour mode)

Note: The text would need to be redone for Mode 0.

Amstrad - a visual compendium

I'm a big fan of Sam Dyer's Bitmap Books. I plan on buying all of his creations via Kickstarter Campaigns.  Currently raising money for the Nintendo Entertainment System/Famicom Compendium, I do hope he reaches the goal of £175,000 so we can all enjoy the Lenticular Slipcase.

More importantly, I hope on his todo list is an Amstrad Book, and in the spirit of this was curious what the cover might look like.  This concept was lightly based off the ZX Spectrum Compendium.

The colour of each box below represents 26 (+ black) of the 27 colour palette the Amstrad CPC computers have.
