Over these last few days a few members have been commenting that we don't do enough Amstrad CPC releases, which to be fair is true, however this is difficult for us because there hasn't really been any new CPC titles to talk about unlike the C64 and ZX Spectrum. But today we do have a game to show you called 'Duck Out', originally by Dro Soft that is currently being ported to the Amstrad CPC!
Duck Out was first released for the MSX and ZX Spectrum in 1989 as a 2D side-scrolling beat em up, whereby the player controlled a duck with a frying pan, who escapes from a restaurant and goes to a park to date a girl. Along the way this crazy duck ends up fighting numerous enemies such as chiefs and cats while avoiding cakes and knives.
It all sounds so much fun! However it was never available on the Amstrad CPC until now because CNGSoft has been working on a CPC conversion which hopefully going by the current development will be available this year!

So if smacking enemies with a frying pan sounds fun to you, keep an eye on developments on the main website, with an English discussion on CPCWiki!
