    Neat! Any comments on the hardware? What was easy, what was hard, what do you wish was different?
    The water effects looks really nice, I wonder how you pulled it off.

    The design of everything visially is very clean and feels like a nice style instead of coming off as simply "crude".

    I kind of feel bad about using this place as my own personal tech Q and A website, but I was wondering. Given that the Amstrad's CPU is under more strain due to its larger size of video RAM, why is it that this doesn't seem to negatively effect the speed of 3D vector based games and isometric games compared to the Spectrum?

    Is it because in these games the CPU is mainly doing math and doesn't actually need to update much of the screen?

    I don't think that Vector graphics are all that CPU intensive. Remember, the 8 bit computers were running games using wire framed objects to represent 3D.

    Asteroids runs on a 1.5 Mhz CPU.

    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."
