Nice work! Written from scratch or is it a port?

Written from scratch Smile
Only the graphics (and words) taken from the original NES version - but this MSX1 game is much better than the original - the title screen is new, and there is support to many more languages - NES version only had japanese and "engrish" (engrish all right, with some words spelled wrong) Tongue

Again, Matra misunderstood me. I've sent the game for him to see it, and he sold it before I did all the proofreading.

Can you tell me what word is mispelled?

Yup! And the ROM is only 32k Smile

Most of the game uses pure sprites - expect for 'Swee'Pea' (the baby) which is made up with characters (until he falls below Bluto's line, then he is turned into a sprite)

Maybe the video makes the graphics better than it actually is... Here's a picture I just took:

TI-99/4A misses ingame music, but it has lots of short jingles here and there, just play and you´ll see! (hear actually;)) It looks better than Colecovision too. :)

@Slotman: The word is Livro in the mode Spanish-English.
Spanish Words with the letter Ñ can not be changed? Araña-Spider. Champiñon-Mushroom.
When Champiñon appeared with the letter A and C were given as good and Bluto did nothing. Besides the music play games at this time only increase in volume.

If I find a word I'll let you know.

Edit: English-Spanish: With Mantis the letters A-B-T were given as good.
