the msx 2 version ( not msx 2+ ) appear to have very simple background gfx, even simpler than msx 1.
they consists only of moving stars.
At least is what i see in the first stages.
Is this the same on higher levels?

I actually quite enjoyed the game. It definitely has better graphics than the msx1 version.

Quite some people don't realise that the MSX2 version is older than the MSX1 version, so the latter had a more polished formula.

AFAIK, Laydock was even one of the MSX2 earliest titles, if not one of its release titles.

Indeed, together with the MSX2 version of hydlide.
