Skool Daze - Retro School antics goes final for the Amstrad CPC

Another hit game which I'm sure you remember was the world favourite of 'Skool Daze'; a ZX Spectrum release from 1984 that featured lots of school antics as you play as a naughty schoolboy named Eric with a task to steal the report card from the headmaster's safe! When I originally played it I had so much fun back in the day, there was nothing better than smacking other kids with your trusty catapult or causing havoc for the teachers and getting 1000's of lines. So how would you like to play the Amstrad conversion which in the last month or so was finally released by the developer Joseman? You do, good! Because it is available to download as a disk and works via an Amstrad emulator or real Amstrad CPC hardware!

We've been keeping an eye on developments with this port and already we can see it looks vastly different than the black and white version that was originally beta released last year. Furthermore apart from the performance improvements and smooth gameplay away from the beta, the developer has also implemented a menu system with several options such as a credit screen, instructions, colour change if the above purple and yellow isn't to your liking and control changes.

A worthy port indeed, it's just a shame I didn't have time to fully test it and to write just how much work has gone into it from the developer Joseman. But if you want to know more, that is available to read here; enjoy gamers and don't be a naughty school kid!
