CP/M Box by Habi Soft, an Amstrad PCW emulator, is available in version 1.8, with a lot of new things : new video system (with color support), new languages system, actions, video recording, a new better debugger, more hardware options, light pens, mass storage, test PCBs, fast loading, keyboard redefinition...
ESP Soft released Red Sunset demo Xmas 2018, which is a 1942 like shoot them up. It looks nice.
Sony just released Lemmings on mobile phone.
The game seems to be nice, but there is just a little problem. Each action needs energy and you can fall to 0 energy in the middle of a level. Or of course you can pay 6 euros for 2 hours of tranquillity...
A short but interesting interview of Stefan Walker who did the conversion of the game Pirates ! (Micropose) on Amstrad CPC in 1987. He even worked in the united states for 6 months with Sid Meier himself !
Not stated in the interview but in the CPCWiki's thread, the program was written in BASIC with RSX, which did ease the port to the X-Mass.
There is a longplay (very long at 6 hours) made by Amstrad Maniaque of Pirates !.
Arnaud Bouche is the author of both Bitume (CPCRetroDev 2017) inspired by Asphalt and Deeper Warrens (8th place at CPCRetroDev 2018) inspired by the classic Gauntlet with RPG elements (experience and buying equipment) on 25 levels !

There is also Desert Drift, a demake for Pico8 (virtual console).
4Mhz is the winner of the CPCretroDev 2018 competition with its game Operation Alexandra (local download). It's a beautiful platform game, you are a russian soldier patrolling outside (minus 23 celcius degrees) near the North Pole at the terra of Alexandra, and you must inspect a place where a signal was emitted. You enter what looks like an old base, without a doubt a nazi base... The rest is in your hands.
