Jer's MSX Basic Games

by Randam Hajile on 22-05-2017, 20:08

A disk with 33 MSX games made in MSX-BASIC. Most of them are for the MSX 1.
The games are pretty simple, but they are all at least playable. I had a lot of fun making these games as a kid. Beware though: some may contain hideous spelling errors.

There is a video showcasing some of these games here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_SbhNT-rHM

The format of this DSK is wrong - 54kB instead of 720kB.

Most games are missing. For example, RUN"AIRPLANE.BAS" will lead to a Disk I/O error

@mars2000you, thanks for pointing this out. The disk is indeed corrupted, some games will give a DISK I/O error. I will submit a new fixed version asap. Apologies for the inconvenience.

It is wonderful that the every game is carefully made. It reminds me again that it is possible to make a fun game with MSX-BASIC alone. Smile

Yes I found MSX-Basic a wonderful and powerful language, especially for beginners. The limitations makes you creative. Big smile Although I would have liked just a little bit more speed, like the Turbo-R provides. Then it si be possible to create almost any type of game just in MSX-Basic.
