About this site
Old schoold gamer view!Anyone who had the pleasure of growing up in the late 80's and early 90's will undoubtedly hold a place in their heart for the old video games that ruled this earth. It was all about having some fun and you didn't need an expensive console or home micro-computer to do so! The simple fact is that no matter how much technology seems to advance, retro gaming will always be interesting enough to spend a chunk of your time.
But back in those rough times there was no internet or any other means for someone to express his feelings, thoughts and impressions towards a game he really enjoyed. The RetroShowcase site is dedicated to some video games of the past we all played and loved. We make a basic reference for each and every game -on any video-game console or home computer that really impressed us. No reviews of numerous -and exhausting- pages here rather just some thoughts, screenshots, sounds etc. Here you can find more than 40 old-school systems, having a direct comparison among different formats, such as Atari ST vs Amiga or Amstrad CPC vs C64 (for the older ones who might still remember those debates) and many more. The 8bit and 16bit home-computers and video-game consoles, will always be on the basis of nostalgia for us really.

The Amstrad CPC+ series graphics!
AmstradCPCPlusIn 1990, Amstrad decided to refresh the CPC model range by introducing a new range labeled as PLUS or CPC+. The main goals were numerous significant hardware enhancements to the existing CPC range. Regardless, this new version of the CPC didn't last long. The 8bit technology behind the Plus was starting to look a little out of date by 1990. But still, it was an amazing range of 8bit computers offering some state-of-the-art technology to the 8bit genre. -more-
