Lachlan Keown, who lives in New Zealand, just released its latest Amstrad CPC production : Robotron 6128, a conversion of the classic arcade game, if you use keyboard, WASD to move and cursor keys to shoot.
He is also the author of Sewer Rat, take the cheese before the aliens does (poor aliens, eating cheese is awful).
He has also written AMSprite for windows (using .Net framework v2.0) or AMSprite for linux/mac (using MONO), which is a cross-development GUI tool to generate ready-to-use sprites and loading screens for the Amstrad CPC in assembly language (CPC+ hardware sprites supported).

You must sort blue and red balls which falls down the screen, putting them to the left or the right according to the color just with the space bar, simple to play, but not so easy with the 3 levels of difficulty. It was first seen on portable phones.
