The Abbey of Crime Extensum - Full English translation of the Amstrad game La Abadía del Crimen

In 1987, Opera Soft released ' The abbey of crime ' also known as ' La abadía del crimen ', which was regarded as one of the best video games for the 8bit system such as the Amstrad, ZX Spectrum, and MSX.  It had a high level of detail, a decent plot, good mapping, sound and much more which made it a worth while game to collect even if it was never released outside of Spain. Thankfully things have changed since then as not only was there a PC remake (link) released not long ago, but as of today if you have an Amstrad, you can now check out the fully English translated version which has since been released by khaz and the help of the cpcwiki community.

Just as we said before in relation to the PC remake. In this game you play as a Franciscan monk, Fray William of Occam and his young novice Adso of Melk on a quest to discover the perpetrator of a series of murders in a Benedictine abbey. The entire game is played in an isometric 3D environment, with a series of objects that has to be collected in order to successfully complete the game. If you've never played the game however and prefer a more authentic 8-bit experience, then the English Amstrad version is the version you should play.
