A new, and rather impressive, Amstrad CPC demo has just been released by The Batman Group demo team. Batman Forever pushes the CPC hardware harder than ever before, with impressive effects that wouldn’t look out of place on an Amiga.
In fact, to my moderate shame, I recall struggling to implement some of these effects at a decent speed on a 32-bit 14Mhz Amiga 1200 with all it’s custom hardware, never mind an 8-bit 4Mhz Amstrad CPC.
Do yourself a favour, and make ten minutes to watch Batman Forever.
Thanks to Markus for capturing the demo as it should be viewed, running on a real CPC.
Demos like this, and new games such as the R-Type remake, prove there’s life in Lord Sugar’s old dog yet!
