And another fresh release from the Sundown 2016 demoscene party: BarBar by Benediction. BarBar is an intro, which uses the special hardware capabilities of the Amstrad Plus series. If you own such a system, be sure to watch it on the real machine (all others will use WinApe for sure :-)).
You can download the demo at the end of this news or directly from Pouet.net (don’t forget to vote).
Devilmarkus and ed209 / Slipstream released their new musicdisc “Remember the 80’s” on the Sundown 2016 demoscene party. As you might have already guessed, it features well-known music from the 80’s on the Amstrad CPC. They also participated in the wild demo competition and ranked 2nd.

Developing a beat’em up game for the Amstrad CPC in one weekend? Impossible! Impossible? Well, Francisco Gallego, Alberto Gonzalez and Jon Cortazar proved during the BitBitJam #3 that it is possible and released their game Kung Fu Guns now. In the game you play Sheriff Melissa Chase, who has to fight against a new chinese gang. It is a simple beat’em up with 2 levels finished, but they are thinking about evolving the idea and release a full game later. The game was developed with the great CPCtelera game development framework.
You can download Kung Fu Guns at the end of the news or from the BitBitJam #3 page. The latest version of the game is also available on GitHub.
