Something that started out as just a test for MSX1 screen soft scrolling, ended up in a full version vertical shooter. The game Freedom Fighter evolved to appear as a physical edition and is now available for preorder.

Back in 2018, MRC user Giuseppe Ettore Pintus, aka thegeps, started exploring soft scrolling on MSX1 screens. The exploration escalated in a true Zanac-Style vertical shooter game called Freedom Fighter. The author even finished it in time to enter the prestigious MSXdev compo where the game ended up at 5th place with a score of 74%. Creator thegeps continued to work on the game.

As any good game, "Freedom Fighter - Rise of the Humans" got to a point where it would be feasible to release it as a physical edition. And so it does. Freedom Fighter gets physical, glove up and take it. Now is the time to step in the ring and preorder the game.

The final version differs from the previously released MSXdev version as it:

  • is a fully enhanced version, more playable, with a lot of graphical content added;
  • has 5 levels, 9 pieces of excellent music, 10 weapon upgrade levels, 3 secrets (codes included in the manual);
  • allows ship selection to play using famous MSX starships from Zanac, Twinbee, Hype, Star Soldier, and Star Force;
  • comes as a192K ROM cartridge in a jewel case with full color cover.

Freedom Fighter physical edition preorders are opened until July 15th 2021. The aim is to release the beast a few months later, on cartridge with full color manual and all. For info and preorder send an e-mail to: thegeps.msxadv@gmail.com. Costs will be €36 ex shipping, world wide. The product is hand-made, consider each version unique.

During the evwnt this little guy enjoyed really a lot the game. At his 10th attempt he managed to defeat midlevel boss and reach endlevel boss Smile
And he never played with a joystick before! Only joypads so far...

Then someone asked me to see more Freedom Fighter
So here's my gameplay (till level 4)
At the end of the video you'll hear some excited voices: near to me, on my left, an old CRT TV (to which a c64 was connected) started to catch fire...
