Shadow of the Beast Demo shown on a GX4000 and Amstrad Plus!

The Amstrad has had it good this year, what with the recent #CPCRetroDev 2017 showing us awesome games such as Baba's Palace and Profanation 2, plus the incredible in development Pinball Dreams CPC, which looks almost as good as the Amiga version but in glorious 8-bit. But now the Amstrad scene is going all out, as thanks to Logon System who came second 2nd at the Alchimie 2017 event, they have shown us  the Amstrad GX4000 and Amstrad Plus running Eerie Forest. Which is actually a rather smooth scrolling demo of Shadow of the Beast, that looks amazing indeed!

Originally published by Psygnosis in 1989-1990 Shadow of the Beast is a side scrolling platformer and featured not just revolutionary graphics for its time but an atmospheric score by David Whittaker, with the best version being the Amiga and Atari and less quality ports on systems such as the Amstrad and ZX Spectrum. This new scene demo however has taken the Amstrad community by surprise, as not only does it look mind blowing but it's running very smooth and would almost be mistaken as the Amiga version...
