Amstrad CPC 464


The first computer we had in our house.

My Mum got it on hire purchase and was paying it off for a long time.


I remember typing out programs with my Mum from some big book of BASIC that came with it. I remember doing the program where you make the background change colour a lot, and where you get the same piece of text to print out indefinitely.


It had a tape deck and made awesome sounds when loading off the tape.

The games I remember playing the most are Galactic Plague, Harrier Attack, Sultan's Maze, and possibly Bard's Tale (but that one might have been on the Amiga). Rampage? Also Gauntlet! Playing that with my brother, unless again it was for the Amiga. But I've a feeling it was the Amstrad.
