Millfork is a middle-level programming language targeting 6502-based, 8080-based and Z80-based microcomputers. Although Millfork stands for MIddle Level Language FOR Kommodore computers, it was designed to be a language for developers for old 8-bit platforms, who have little use for advanced features of C, but don't have time to write assembly. It looks a lot like C.

Alhtough it seems MSX support is minimal at the moment, I saw a very interesting project called "Alien Rescue". Alien Rescue is a really nice game, written in Millfork for the Pacman Arcade Board (!), which has a Z80. A guy named MonstersGoBoom is now porting this game to other platforms, including the MSX.

I love following what creative people are doing these days.

Sincere apologies for writing "a guy named..."
Can't edit my post anymore, I'm afraid.

The MSX-port of Alien Rescue is already looking great fun: https://twitter.com/i/status/1174864663592493061
