A mockup I made using Amstrad CPC restrictions. Widepixels and 16 colors maximum out of 27 possible (color channels can be either zero, half or full intensity).

I tried to avoid mixing the colors too much to keep the elements visually separate, which I think works OK. Might do some more of these later as it was fun once I got the hang of the colors.

Thx for trying the CPC palette, wish more would give it a try, and it is a clever use of it.

I posted this Picture at CPCwiki's forum and clearly it is topnotch use of CPC capabilities.

would you be interested into doing a whole tile and sprites set that may actually be used by a real Amstrad CPC ?

here the link to forum's topic, sorry if you don't want me to post this picture...

Always loved the CPC palette, but never tried it so far.

You make it look easy

REALLY like the hearts, colors ect, would have been amongst the best looking game ...but in a tiny view box :)
