After Star Sabre, Dead on Time by Axelay for Amstrad CPC

-

Axelay is the author of Star Sabre and Star Sabre 128 (a shoot them up). His new creation is Dead on Time, an arena shooter, where you have to last the longer possible vs waves after waves going for you. It reminds me of Time Pilot by Konami.

Remake of Sapiens by the original authors : Didier and Olivier Guillion

-

It has been ages since I last went on the web site of the 2 Guillion brothers, the authors of Sapiens. There is a newer (though not recent) version of their windows remake of this nice game, one of the few I finished on my Amstrad CPC. You should download this remake, for the music if only, but if you want to play it, dont forget the authors, it's a shareware for 10 € only.
