Matahari from turkey released his first demo for the CPC. It is a scroller in overscan which features 50 Hz hardware scroll, overscan, all 27 colours of the CPC and this all within 256 bytes. You can download it from Pouet.net and don’t forget to vote for it!
CNGSoft released his long awaited remake of the game Bubble Bobble. Finally, the CPC gets a version of this great, which it deserves. Compared to the original CPC port of Bubble Bobble, it features very colourful graphics, the intro sequence and bigger sprites. To sum it up: it is much closer to the original arcade version. Be sure to download and test it. You can get the game from CNGSofts homepage (click on the image).
Did you ever think about having a Bluetooth connection to your CPC, e.g. to transfer your data or DSK images directly from or to it? Of course it is possible and it is very simple to realise that, plus: you can use all the tools, which already work with the CPC Booster+. I already use this setup for nearly a year and found the time time to document it. You can find the documentation in the articles section of this page.
The newest episode (#145) of the Bitjam Podcast again features over 40 min of great tunes from the Amstrad CPC.

Don’t miss this episode and download it from the Bitfellas homepage.
