Hi. I'm starting this topic to comment experiences when using msxs with kids, their friends and other relatives. I found nothing similar and posts are spread over different topics.

We have just started playing old games and recently discovered Ice World. A nice game that makes kids reason and analyse strategies but becomes really hard for them when ducks sneak around. At the moment we found this solution: one controls the mouse and the other one thinks. Let's see how far we get...

Yes, you're right, Jipe. MSXdev game's are also interesting for kids: Linez, Traffic Jam or Quartet, among others.

I'm turning 15 so I'm not exactly a "kid", but I have been interested in MSX stuff since I was 12, and retrocomputing in general far before that.

Nice to read this, Omargrafx. Hope my children will still be interested in msx when they reach your age.

Although I didn't buy an MSX until I was 13 or 14.. The first model I owned was a Sanyo MPC-2 aka Sakhr AX170.

The Sanyo MPC-2 seems to be a good one. Never had that one. We're now enjoying the vg8020.

I'm starting thinking Ice world does not suit kids... Too hard...

Uh oh.. Stay kids away from our precious machines! Big smile They're a kind of lifeform made for destruction. At least until they got some age to appreciate the machine and see the diference between a non-replaceable MSX and an expendable PC keyboard.

Or make them use joypads at least... Wink

You're right MsxKun. At home we only use undestroyable telemaches.
