The original game, published by Ocean in 1987, is one of the greatest hits in 8-bit history.
Unlike most of his creations, Ocean released all of Jon Ritman's MSX games, with the original sin of being direct ports of the Spectrum versions.
To restore the lost honor of Japanese computers, FX went to work with the conversion to MSX 2. And you can imagine the result: the same fun of yesteryear, taking advantage of the greater capabilities of the second generation MSX.
The game features are as follows:
16 colors on screen.
Games recording on the cartridge itself.
Music from the splash screen composed for the Playsoniq SID sound chip (SCC and MSX-MUSIC in development).
SCC + PSG sound effects.
Support for Joymega.
Support for Z80B and R800.
Spanish and English version.
The requirements are:
MSX2 or higher with a minimum of 128Kb of VRAM
A couple of years earlier, FX had already surprised us with the conversion of Ritman's other great isometric hit, Bat Man
