Yay! Megapoll time! This time, we're going to find out which is the best Homebrew MSX Game released thus far, as suggested by Manuel in this forum topic.

First things first, so we'll start with asking you which game(s) you would like to nominate to run in this megapoll. After that, it will take several rounds of voting on the MRC Fora before we dust off our front page poll for the grand finale.

A few ground rules:

Please nominate your games using one line per game, stating both the name of the game and the developers. For example:

Not Again! (Flying Bytes)
Bombaman (Team Bomba)

Also, please only nominate comlpete games that actually have been released. Proof of concepts, work in progress, demo versions are not allowed for nomination.

You can nominate as many games as you want, but please don't copy/paste a complete list of homebrew MSX games you found somewhere on the web. Nominate what you deem worthy of the title, or at least what you would like to see competing against all the other games.

Makes sense, doesn't it? Let's vote nominate!

You can send in your nominees until April 13th, 23:59 CET!

How about this one:
http://baudejogos.net/jogo.php?id=4375
Escape from Alcatraz
BUT, my favorite game of all times is, believe me or not, a version of Santa Paravia for MSX-Basic.
As the code was in Basic, small changes were made from person to person (between spreading it on those famous "unsorted" disks). The person who got it, got it as Bologna&Milano and changed to "Duelo dos Reinos" before giving it to me.

I'm yet to see that kind of addiction on a text-based game.

And what was that Dutch game called where you could drive around in tanks, on big maps? You could play multiplayer and lay down mines and stuff. I think they made two of them. Played that a lot.
