In search of an action platforming game for Amstrad

Post by THEGramer » Thu Nov 21, 2019 9:38 am

Lately my grandpa is mentioning a weird game he used to play in His amstrad console back in 1980. The game as he remembers was a platformer in wich you took control of an entity looking like a soldier that was completly black. He especialy remembers that in the later stages of the game the backround was total black so your character was one with it. He is not sure if it was only 1 live gameplay or not . He remembers that the name had to do something with arms or army but he is not 100% sure. He is 73 and he would love to play it again sadly it got lost both the console and the cartrige when he moved houses so it only exist in His memory. I got an amstrad cpc and if it is not the correct console i Will get the one but i need help finding it. Any help would be extremely appreciated thanks in advanced.

Hmm...I never had an Amstrad computer, but there are some lists of games for those here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Amstrad_CPC_games

Some games that may apply: Side Arms, Army Moves, Metal Army

An all-black character could imply a Ninja/stealth style game, so maybe it's not a regular army guy?

Thank you for your reply unfortunately i have searched these games and i have checked some games from Wikipedia. It was not a stealth game though for sure. It did not involve stealth vechicles and animals. The game as he describes it was probably harder than contra the game and yes it had some "combat" involved (Guns) if you manage to find anything by chance please let me know thank you kind stranger.

The best I can offer is Mobygames database; here is the CPC games list for (Action Platformer, Side view, Commercial releases)

https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/ ... 16/ti,124/

Still, Mobygames database is not complete, and all info is continually updated by it's members.
