Hi all, it's been a while. Recently I bought a Phillips MSX2 NMS 8250 (had a Toshiba MSX1 previously) and at last I got the chance to play more games of this fantastic platform! I have a question: where can I get UMAX games such as the pumpkin adventure 3? I visited the website of UMAX but it seems that they are not for sale anymore. Any help would be more than welcome!

I‘m afraid, as long as they aren‘t freeware you have to get them second hand. Please take a look here.

You can also try to contact Umax. Perhaps they can help you. (Not sure, though.)

If you have some (weeks/months) patience I might be able to help you at least Pumpkin Adventure II as I'll sell that for a friend... There's just a little pause now since the guy just turned father again... That's a bit more important for the guy atm Wink

I just sent them an email now as Manuel suggested but unfortunately I received the following automated response:

"Dear Sir/Madam,

Unfortunately due to continued lack of time by several team members, the new projects we had in mind couldn't be supported. Therefore in 2006 it was decided to cancel the projects.
It seems that Pumpkin Adventure 3 will be the last game created by UMAX.

Emails sent to this address will not be answered.

Regards,
UMAX Team"

Even then, PA3 wasn't even their last game.
