Wild StreetsSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Big street gangs of NY want to regain control over the city and, above all, secure their territories by kidnapping CIA's Head Officer (called the "Boss"). Your mission is to find and free "The Boss" and to bring him back to safety. Yoou can use your Magnum 457 and your street fighting skills to kill the gang members, but you also have a companion, a beautiful panther called Black Virgin. But most of the times this feline is almost of no use! There are five levels, each swarmed by gang members. you can kill but you can also jump over them to the next screen without having to fight (oh yes that's easy). The gameplay is inconsistent at times. It is very easy at the first two sections and then it suddenly gets much tougher. The use of flick-screen rather than scrolling means that it's certain for the main character to get caught between screens. You can easily walk through the levels by either shooting everyone (as long as you have bullets) or just running (and jumping) past them! The game is also available for the Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and CPC+, ZX Spectrum 128k, Amiga and Atari ST.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The CPC version has colorful graphics with vivid colors and detailed backdrops but the sprites look "blocky" and poorly animated. The action is quite slow compared to the CPC+ and Commodore versions. Soundwise, the game is fine having a catchy introductory theme and a (rather repetitive) gameplay tune (but no sound effects at all).

Hardware information

Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128

Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128CPU: ZiLOG Z80 4MHZ
MEMORY: 64 KB or 128 KB of RAM depending on the model (capable of being expanded to 512k using memory extension boards)
GRAPHICS: Motorola 6845 address generator, Mode 0: 160x200 / 16 colors, Mode 1: 320x200 / 4 colors, Mode 2: 640x200 / 2 colors, A colour palette of 27 colors was supported
SOUND: The CPC used the General Instrument AY-3-8912 sound chip, providing 3 channels Mono Sound (via internal speaker) but capable to offer Stereo Sound provided through a 3.5 mm headphones jack (with pretty impressive outcome!). Also, it is possible to play back digital sound samples at a resolution of approximately 5bit. This technique is very processor-intensive though.
