But there have been a few comments here and their about similarities.
First A8 had 128 colours (yes 256 very quickly after I know) C16 had 121 and both have similar CPU speeds. No sprites on C16 but char mode of C64. Not sure on pixel scroll and not sure on sound (inferior to SID and there are SID mods for +4 machines)
Can we have a sensible comparison of the two different machines? I would be fascinated to know if there is a version of Rescue on Fractalus for C16/+4 (there was Spectrum and Amstrad CPC version as well as Apple/IBM/C64/A8) just to see if it made a good game.
I don't know that much about C16 games, there was a rubbish version of Commando for C16 but also a +4 only version too which was much better. So maybe we say A8 vs Plus4 then for ultimate comparison unless we talk about 16k Atari 400 from 1979 yes?
Please no fan boys! This is one subject I would like some experienced users comments from the technical side (maybe go in programming forum? I don't know)
