I killed the first boss. But how do I go to the exit on the top left? I can't reach it... GRAPH doesn't seem to do anything.

To get the scooter you will have to kill a true first boss

The C64 version isn't the same as the MSX version. AFAIK, the MSX version is the only one with real bosses, and each boss just gives you a weapon upgrade, all of which are optional (but very helpful!).

The scooter is absolutely essential, though. You can get it right at the beginning of the game -- just go one screen right, one screen down, then one screen left from where you start, and destroy the robot to claim it.

Without it, you're basically screwed -- frankly, I'm shocked you were able to beat a boss without it!

Gryffoon, I don't remember the exact order of operations for the MSX version, but I can try to figure it out and help you sometime soon (maybe this weekend?) if you're still stuck.

I know the one part that really had me stuck was the vending machine, which Nippon Dexter... erm... didn't bother to actually draw in the MSX version. It looks like a totally empty room. Yet you're supposed to use the 5-credit piece in that room, at which point you'll suddenly get the part you need and a 1-credit piece will appear out of thin air. With no explanation.

Considering they ADDED BOSSES to this version of the game, I find it really questionable that they couldn't be bothered to draw a vending machine! Wink

Yes you got it ! this is were I'm stuck, I'll return to play it this week end.

They didn't draw the vending machine and didn't add the dialog either. But still a good game for MSX, and even the best version since there is bosses and true ennemies ! In the other versions you fight only against floating objects, with the ridiculous gun we have at the beginning of the game.

The other difficulty of MSX version is that there is not enough ammunition and health objects.

It's also the only version with music, AFAIK. So it is arguably the best! But it's also possibly the worst-LOOKING, and it's clear that corners were cut everywhere. It's really quite an anomaly!

But I definitely enjoyed my time with it.

thanks to hashem who helped me. It's in the room L2 ! They didn't draw the market !!!

It's in this room where you have to use the 5$ Coin and you get the 1$ coin and a fuse.

And the fuse you have to use it with the stuck white robot and use the fuse and the solder iron.

(*spoiler*)
You have also to go to the room with the mooving robot and use the 1$ coin and get the key behind the door.
