Flynn, author of the game H.E.R.O. and the WinCPC emulator for Windows, just wanted to learn how to program an Apple Macintosh and started to port WinCPC. The WinCPC emulation core was ported to C and the View and Controller were ported to Objective-C. He also thought about an iPhone port…

Well, there is lot’s of work to do, e.g. FDC and tape routines, sound rendering and a lot of other things, so it will take some time until MacCPC will be released. He also wrote that he has not discontinued WinCPC.

Ervin ported the game 3D-Maze written by Nigel Sharp in 1985 (Amstrad Computer User, October 1985) to a mixture of CCZ80 and assembler. He ported the BASIC game line by line and added additional assembler routines. Instead of using the slow drawing routines of the firmware, he uses some of the drawing routines which are available at the [[Programming#Graphics|CPCWiki]]. You can get more information about the port in the CCZ80 forums.

The DSK image contains both versions: the old BASIC version and the new, improved version. You can download the disk at the end of this posting and from the CPC Wiki.
