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.

BSC, probably best known for his Soundtrakker, just released the source code of a new music tracker, which is also capable to play SID voices on the Amstrad CPC. Currently the graphical user interface is quite rudimentary, but the tracker is useable, produces an awesome sound and hey… after the source code release, you can write a GUI by yourself :-).

Well, the following audio examples stand for themselves:

You can get the source code and a snapshot for an emulator from GitHub. The technical discussion is available in the CPC Wiki forums including a description of the keyboard shortcuts.
