This is really good, plays just like the Mac version.
I like The Tower stage, nice vertical scrolling stage and very playable on MSX1.
I would like to see atleast one level fully ported, with music. (or MSX original levels)

Wow, thanks a lot hap!!!

I was privy (priVVVVVVy? Smile) to an older version of this at Nijmegen a few years ago, but it has way expanded and improved since then! Controls are super smooth, responsive and fast. Gameplay is addictive. The starfield-effect is a cool touch. I don't know the 'original' version of this game, but I trust it's an excellent port.

In short: OMG, this is the opposite of a crappy!!!

Well, I do make that face sometimes when in front of a toilet. Fortunately not often. Wink
Is it weird that it reminded me of the final Firehawk boss? Smile

This is a great port, Hap. Are you planning on finishing it and possibly adding some Joystick support? I've played through the original getting all of the medallions twice, once on PC and once on 3DS, but I've never tried playing it with keyboard support (or in my case the arrow keys on the MSX). It was quite difficult since I was used to the game pad type of control. Finished the first level so far. : )

Great job so far!
