Ok, here it is: https://youtu.be/UgpBRRBnvMM

Didn't knew that this game was originally made by Nintendo and that the engine was, somehow related to Donkey Kong.
Anyway, not a trivial conversion. Massively uses all RSTs and try to write @ ROM (which is no longer ROM during "Coleco Emulation").

Will be released as soon as it's more extensively tested.

Congratulation! It's good to know. It doesn't have an equivalent game on MSX.

As for me, currently I working on Rocky...

It's great. But since this said it was Muffie's last project, I guess I can be in charge for a while.

Thanks GDX!. BTW, hoping to play Rocky on the MSX soon! I'm a huge fan of the movie since I was really young.

Yep!
He'll maybe focus on trying to get as much juice as possible from Tutankham. New Sound, New Graphics, Music, Maybe an MSX2 version and eventually creating a cartridge exactly like an original Konami one from the same era:

Maybe we could use RC-708 (instead of the never released Action Boat).

Hey, this is looking really great ! You are using MSX2 pallete colors, right?

Since there's no offense in asking questions, do you think the game has room in MSX to add at least another colour to Popeye sprite? I don't know, since he wears white, add some skin color to his face and arms. Wink

That is a good idea, Parker Brothers should've done that before.

I'm impressed how many people care for those conversions. Taylor, iamweasel and hbarcellos are following Muffies legacy. What a team! Great!
