The Amstrad CPC 464 tape version of Ghostbusters has an ugly bug at the end of the game. And they are other bugs earlier : flickering, lack of on-screen activity, slowdown.

For old timers, very very old in case of Sapiens, I want to remind you that the original authors of the game Didier and Olivier Guillion have written a windows VGA remake of Sapiens. The game is a shareware for only 10 €.
The original music was written by Gilles Soulet, here are 2 remix of the music on Youtube :
- Sapiens - Atari ST, midi music for monotimbral synths (Yamaha MU1000 with DX)
- Sapiens Main Theme Remix
The Amstrad CPC original music of Sapiens is of course also available on youtube.
Often in games, the music is either written by Tom et Jerry or McKlain.
For the music of El Tesoro Perdido de Cuauhtemoc by 4Mhz, it's the turn of McKlain (listen to the music on Soundcloud).
Some parts of the music makes me think of elite's music.
