Clever & Smart (originally Mortadelo y Filemon) is one of the most popular comics created in Spain. It has also a great success in Germany an other European coutries. But it was in Germany where a group decided to create a videogame.
So, why we are talking about a German game? Well, launched initially for Spectrum, Amstrad, C64, Atari ST and Amiga, the Spanish house Dro Soft, distributor of the game in our country, wisely decided that the most famous Spanish comics could not stay without a version for MSX, one of the most popular 8-bit computers in our country, so they decided to hire Xortrapa to create this version for the Spanish market.
As you can see, this is the typical direct conversion from Spectrum version, those that used to irritate so much the users of the Japanese computer, but it has some graphic details on the scoreboard shyly enhancing the differences with the original version.
Although magazines used to consider this game not so good (except Microhobby reviewers), I must admit I enjoyed a lot with it, being so much deep than the sequel, published only in Spain. It's hard, and maybe monotonous, but it deserves a chance.
