As ever, the French manage to get more out of a CPC than most people get out of an ST - as far as graphics and sound are concerned at any rate. The gameplay's the same as the original - converse with aliens across the galaxy as you search out for your clone siblings - so there's still the fascination of a complex icon system to experiment with. There are still those nagging doubts about the thing's lasting interest too, come to that, but the look of it will overcome most people's reservations.
Given that Captain Blood is above all an adventure - albeit a very pretty one on both ST and Amstrad - there's very little difference in playability, making this a very commendable conversion indeed.
