I recently finished CRAZE from Heart Soft. Awful gameplay, but nice graphics and music, and cool intermissions and game ending. Craze is the kind of game that is only playable if trained.

So I decided to take a look at Vaxol, also from Heart Soft. Sadly the cheat included in BlueMSX for power simply doesn't work (player dies very soon, instead of being immortal). Does anyone has a working trainer for Vaxol?

Thanks in advance! Smile

EDIT: Vaxol indeed seems to have only 3 stages and just starts again when beating the 2 dragons, without any 'reward' or message whatsoever oO?
It actually frustrates me every time I play this otherwise very decent game.
This can't be the meaning of the whole thing. People payed good money for the cartridge back then (not me though - I have the tiny bird which sometimes crashes through my window).

BTW - I think you are really hardcore for taking on Craze. :)
I always liked the (sort of) isometric angle of the graphics, but the music didn't particulary settle in my brain - would have to play it again.
Liked & remembered the craftly drawn intro demo, though.

Craze is huge, it's impossible to aim at an enemy, and maps are confusing on purpose. It's a good game idea that was very poorly implemented.

But IMHO it has good graphics (specially intermission betweeen stages) and the game ending is quite impressive. I finished Craze, but using all BlueMSX trainers for it. It's a game that deserves to be mapped (hint for Only69). I mapped it on paper with simple sketches. Trust me... the game is really confusing... Sad

I've played a lot Vaxol. He was one of my first original games and I have much love. Now I have not played for months but I think in total there are eight stage. Feedback it´s same, when you reach the last stage again and you start to complete a second tour. I've always played from one of my MSX, but the last stage is really difficult. Still have not lost hope of finish in my MSX.

Craze original had it and sold it. Now I want it back.
A beautiful game. A friend who has told me that with both cartridges in combination, in Craze have the option not remember whether to continue or save the stage in tape.

I believe Feedback actually has an end to it (soft of.... it's an endless loop Tongue)

@ Vampier, yes it does. It has 2 endings.
This is also explained story-wise.
Who puts it on YouTube, you or me? Wink

@ mesiasmsx, you're right, but it's worse than I thought. Sad

Let's run through Vaxol.

You start here:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With at the end this (get two if you're not fast enough):

Get this:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And then this:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With these guys awaiting you:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then you indeed get the first 3 stages again, BUT it's followed by this:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After which you have to fight this:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then you go to a stage that's even worse:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Where you eventually fight this:

...get more portion of stage, fight it once more (*sigh*), then more of the stage...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...until, at last, you face this:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...which expands and, errr, 'pulsates' a bit more...

img821.imageshack.us/img821/3077/vax12.png

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...until the stupid thing explodes...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...and you're back to this! ;(

Hi.
Sorry for revive the thread, but I think that the info is not right Smile . I played a lot Vaxol when I was a kid, and I remember that level 4 appears when you get a score of 200.000 points (or more).
If you get that score in the first pass, you don't need repeat levels 1 - 3, and it's possible to reach that score in the first pass but it's needed to use too much the weapons 3 and 4 (destroying a monster with weapons 3 or 4 get double of points that with weapons 1 or 2).
About cheats I remember that exists a way to begin a new game in the level you died in the last game pressing Y - A - S keys at the same time that SPACE key. Of course, you begin without energy and with score 0. Smile
