I wrote the first version of Gribbet! for the Amstrad CPC home computer. That game was published in Amstrad Action magazine in March 1991. You can download my Amstrad disc and tutorials here, but if you don't already know what an Amstrad is, you won't find it easy to use. The original Gribbet! was inspired by a swinging frog ornament I had on my desk.
