Prohibition - JavaCPC Games owner remakes a classic Amstrad shooter for Java

Markus Hohmann of JavaCPC Games has contacted the community to let them know about the latest Amstrad Java remake of Prohibition; an arcade shooter originally for Arcades that was ported by Infogrames to the Amstrad CPC in 1987. Developed by Markus, who runs the brilliant JavaCPC Games site in which you can play every Amstrad game emulated in Java, will bring the game bang up to date with mouse support and other features not yet known, all playable on a PC, Mac or Linux.

Set in 1931 New York, just like the original game, you are tasked with the avenging of your family that was killed in a gang shoot out. Shooting at mobsters and the mafia boss, this game is pretty similar to titles such as Operation Wolf as you move a target around the screen shooting at bad guys that appear in windows or on the street. A decent enough game for it's time and just as good on the Amstrad with smooth animation and fun game play.

The remake is a work in progress title and once we know more it will be mentioned here
