The voting phase is over and 34 people voted for their favourite demos and productions in various categories. I guess, we saw some great productions during 2013 and I am sure that the results reflect the common reception. Head over to Push’n’Pop and see the result by yourself and don’t forget to have a look at the demos and productions on real hardware again :-).
Well, I am little late this year, but: Goodbye 2013, hello 2014!

You can vote until the 31. January.
Jonathan Cauldwell released a new version of the Arcade Game Designer (AGD) for the Amstrad CPC. With the AGD you can design your own arcade games. It features an own simplistic language, a sprite editor, a screen editor, etc. It is also possible to port games between the different platforms. The games “Lab Escape” and “Jigsaw Rescue” were built with the AGD.
You can get more information and find the latest version in the CPCWiki forums.
- fixed sprite corruption at right edge of screen
- return to BASIC at end of game
- check for objects at next sprite position, not last position
- sprites can now be spawned safely in main loop events
- joystick 0/1 now selectable
Egotrip released a new colourful platform game which was developed with the Arcade Game Designer (AGD) like Lab Escape.You play the pet of Princess Amy – a potato, which came to life after it got electro-shocked. It played with Amys favourite jigsaw in the garden when a gust of wind scattered the pieces throughout the castle grounds. Now it is up to you to collect all 30 pieces until Amy comes home…
The game is about 95% finished and only minor things are missing because of some bugs of AGD, however it is fully completeable. You can download it at the end of this news or from the CPCWiki forums.
