Amstrad CPC Vs Amstrad GX4000 - Port Comparison!


With the recent additions to the retroscene showcasing the Amstrad GX4000 console with the 'Eerie Forest' and 'CRTC3' demos, it's a perfect time to re-present my series of videos showing the often touted 'CPC shoveled' games and the differences between the versions. 15 of the 26 games released for the GX4000 on cartridge were ports of existing CPC tape or disk games. It's commonly thought these ports are identical to the CPC originals and therefore not worth the higher price tag and majorly contributed to the failure of the system.

This series of videos makes direct side by side comparisons as I discuss the differences, if any, between the versions and choose which one is superior. I believe this is the only source on the internet that demonstrates this.

Part 1 features Batman, Barbarian 2, Operation Thunderbolt.


Part 2 features Klax, Mystical, Super Pinball Magic


Part 3 features No Exit, Panza Kickboxing, Wild Streets


Part 4 features Crazy Cars 2, Fire & Forget 2, Pro Tennis Tour


Part 5 features Switchblade, Tin Tin on the Moon, Dick Tracy
