Looks great Mentalthink. Here’s another Ghosts And Goblins for the GX4000. This more of a reboot though.

What I could have done with that scrolling back in the day!  :S
Cheers,

There was also a remake of that game too from 2015 to Commodore 64 as well:

Here the music is insanely cool.

Thanks BigSofty, just I test under WInAPE, but for now seems is in alpha version, but really is nice to see this quality of graphics in an Amstrad device.
SpaceFractal, thanks for this version, I don't know about it... Commodore always seems an arcade hyper fast and smooth.

just sad GX4000 for many have consider this to been one of the worst console of all time (im do now the Commodore one was even worse, which im do agree)...…. Howover its nice to see new games to old machines. Here which system is on, is regaardless.

Also im do seen Galactic Tomb's scrolling is a bit quite crap, but its seens and and looks quite fine and play well.

But yes C64 scrolling is great when used correctly and can been insane fast.

Im was very impressed how close this Canabalt port was it to C64 (in 16kb only), yes its quite 5 years old now (but im still like that game):

btw, only the pal version contains the 50hz dual parralax scrolling, not on the ntsc C64 machine, which is just a single screen, but still 50hz.

Also this is a COOL demo for the Sega Megadrive, which does use some undocomented features, which migth not exists on all mega drive:

But both Amstrad and Speccy can impress too. but im do have to admin, im newer liked the stupid beeper. BUT AY is nice when done right. Example like Pacmania to Spectrum, which is quite better than the C64 version.
