Les Flics in a shop Christmas 1984 whilst my parents deciding whether to buy a Sony MSX, Acorn Electron or C64.

Well, if you look at it from a historical point of view: how else would you control a runner/sportsmen on the screen? I'd say that the current way was the best way back then.. and perhaps even today.

Yup, I totally agree w/ wolf. I still like these 'sports'-games. IMO those games rule Wink
Have seen some newer ones, but there you have to press buttons in a certain order to gain e.g. speed... those are too lame oO

IMO, the best way to control a runner is with motion capture on a tredmill. Smile
Though jumping would be a problem... hmz

Topple Zip: just fly .. I never used my manual anyway.. since the 'cartoon versions' of the objects/enemies really don't match the sprites on the screen Smile

There's a few things to remember:

In the pills: there's a yellowish/white item, try to get that one always.. it's a weapen that kills your enemies with a single blast.

Try to pickup a radar item .. (looks like some antenna) .. that'll show you the destinations of the tunnels on your radar-screen.

level 1,2,3,4 are 'earth' levels, 5 and beyond are 'space' levels. Try to get to level 8, somehow you can finish the game there.. the 2 times I finished the game I sortof didn't know how I did it Smile I prolly picked-up some special item, or flew through a special tunnel or so ..

For the rest, just experiment with the game, in a short while you know all the items. Graphically one of the better msx1 games imho..!
