btw, SMB stands for Shameless Msx Bros, just to avoid any legal suit. Anyway if nintendo bugs me I'll switch the project to Cave Story
"Shameless MSX Bros" sounds great! LOL! I like "Cave Story" a lot too! Smile

Concerning Super Mario, I'm wondering if this

ever caught Nintendo's attention.

And there's more where that came from.

Super Boy 1, 2 and 3 and Super Bioman 4 are games which look better on screenshots. ;) I would have been proud of having such games in the 80s of course, but I will have to say that they are not made as good as they could have been. Just find them and test play them and you´ll soon see that you can do better on playability field. :) Musics are nicely done though. :)

Great Giana Sisters on C64 was effectively banned from the commercial market (only to force the game to go into non-commercial community spreading),
But please remember, that Great Giana Sisters were showed on a BIG computer show where every software company who wanted themselves to be noted for, came there, including Nintendo. I guess Mr. Canadian is not planning such thing? ;)

and Wikipedia also teaches that KC Munchkin, a PacMan clone on the Philips Videopac (Odyssey), was banned in the US but it continued to be sold in the Netherlands at least until the mid-80's. So it seems (rather unsurprisingly) that copyright lawyers have been most active in the US.

This has sounded a bit strange and a kind of unfair, as Magnavox was the only gaming console company (as far as I know it) which get sued for their Pac-Man clone!! Imagine how many PAC-MAN clones there were getting born almost everyday for almost every possible computer or videogame system on those years?!?!?!?! And Magnavox even made their game different, it´s the only one pac-clone I know, which have "pills" which do run away to not get eaten alive!!!!) and still got sued!!

Read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munchkin_%28video_game%29 and you´ll see that Munchkin game is actually far more interesting and innovative than Pac-Man!!!!

You must be right. Another example is Oh Shit! which AFAIK provoked no reaction from Namco.
Probably they did not advertise their Oh-Shit! too much everywhere claiming this is the world´s best pac-man game etc, and cover picture does not have anything related to pac and it was quite "late" already when Oh Shit! appeared. I remember Vic-20 had some Pac game which become too close to the original and got shelved.

Mr. Canada, have you seen and read about sprite flicker routine topics here on Msx Resource Center? Maybe you have.

Indeed they do, LOL.
I remember being young and reading about Super Boy 2 in an MSX magazine. I got very enthusiastic "finally Super Mario on my MSX!", so I was happy when it arrived. Less happy when I played, but still allright. Wink
The music at least seems to be the most original part. Smile
What I find somewhat funny, is, that they had to think of a new name for a fat guy with a big moustache, and the best they can come up with is "Boy". Big smile

John, do you really mean you had a chance to order super mario msx game in the 1980?!?!?!?!?!? oOoOoO Lucky bastard, Wink if that is true!!!!! In which country you lived? I never heard anything like that until late nineties when I accidentally found online Super Boy java MSX emulator from the internet. I must say I was really amazed and fancied to keep playing that game!!!! It was blocky scroll but I liked it even it was not real msx but emulator on pc, but anyway game was originally published for msx and that was really great!!!! Big smile (even there was some playability faults, it was a great thing!!!!)

Well, maybe that´s better than if they had named him as "Super Girl". Wink

Or "Jumpman" as he was named first before he became known as Mario.

No, it must have been in the early '90s. But in The Netherlands, where I live(d), there was a guy who was verry good at distributing MSX games, so it didn't take long for me to have a copy. Wink

And yes, it's still a better name than "Super Girl", but still... Big smile

@ Huey
"Jumpman" probably isn't patented or anything, right?

I got Super Boy II around 1991, it was the disk (pirate) version as every game in Brazil. Yup, I was happy until I played that shit.
