Phoenix – emulation of the Amstar arcade game [Octoate - The Amstrad CPC] [[source]]


Phoenix is a Space Invaders like arcade game written by Amstar in 1980 directly for an arcade machine. Norbert Kehrer thought that it would be possible to emulate this machine on the Amstrad CPC with the Z80, so he wrote an emulator, which uses the ROM of the arcade game and emulates the complete machine including the graphics and sound hardware. Besides some smaller bugs, which he wants to fix in the future, it runs fine on the Amstrad CPC.
You can download the latest version of the game from his homepage.
