Space Pest Control - Jump and Shooter platformer in dev for the Amstrad CPC


This year so far has been pretty decent for the Amstrad CPC, as we've seen a number of games in development or that have been released, that are real eye openers for the ageing 8bit system. Just search Amstrad on our site to get a good idea of what we are talking about. But here we are again with another in development game, ' Space Pest Control ' by Reidrac (Juan J. Martinez), that will hopefully be a submission for the CPC retro Dev 2015 competition.


Just recently the developer pushed out a rather nice musical tease above as the first test for music in the actual game. But as for the game play, it will be a classic jump and shoot game, with an exploration component priming strategy over the shoot them all experience. The dev has also noted he will be using mode 0, targeting the 464, with SDCC and some bits of cpcrslib and a custom tile/sprite engine. For most of us that's a bit of a mouthful, but it sounds interesting!

Once again we don't have a firm story line or when the game will actually be available, but if everything goes to plan, it will be this year!
