New game for the Retro Remakes 2008 contest. This game fits in the category 'We Like It Retro' where you create a new game in a retro style so this is very much the Amstrad CPC from 1984, which was my first computer and still a great influence on my pixel work. Game screen and status bar use 16 colors each chosen from 27 total palette, and the 16 color mode on CPC uses wide pixels which I'm enjoying cos they're appealingly chunky :)
Contest started 1st September and I've already got this far despite having a busy week with other things so this won't be too time consuming especially since I have til 6th December to complete it. The name stands for Cosmic Platoon Commando (the words may change by time game is complete but the initials will be the same) is a double reference to the CPC computer, and the game Astro Marine Corps of which is the main influence along with Turrican II, Gryzor and other platform shoot 'em ups that were great on the CPC.
