Nice work, it's a beautiful screen-10 game! A rare gem!

Some nice surprises:

- It supports moonblaster stereo mode! Just insert your MSX-Audio cartridge for a richer 18 channels stereo FM music.
- It works on Panasonic MSX2+ machines if you hold CTRL on boot and enable the 5.37MHz turbo. But it will run a bit slow though (the machine needs to have 128KB or more internal RAM)
- It supports the OPL3 cartridge! It will probably also work on a Moonsound if it's set to the address C0h.

With a bit more effort, it would probably work very well on any turbo 7.14MHz MSX2+. Currently it doesn't run on the CIEL ExpertTurbo because the game seems to rely on the MSX Turbo-R slot layout.

Great news!
Thank you ericb59.
It´s your first game?
In A1St when i press F1 during the game appear a error. Undefinded line number in 2000.
If i press F1 in the title screen appear the password menu and number 1 in the left corner on this screen.
Works with Music Module?

Hi,
Yes this is my first game since 30 years !!!
F1 was supposed to be a pause KEY, but was no longer usefull, and I forgot to check it !

Other keys to use are
F2 to switch music on/off
F3 to quit game and return to title screen.

@sd_snatcher : with some optimization this game can run on 128 ko MSX2 with less graphics color and no FM Music.
I will try to optimize it for Turbo MSX2+ but it will always need 128ko of memory.

Can you try to compile it? If so, maybe it can work as a charm at full speed in even a regular MSX2 computer.
