Shalom! I drew the map of the first island that was published in MSX computer magazine many moons ago, but never finished all the islands, and I've never seen complete maps elsewhere...

I would say... Ganbare Goemon.

( been working on a replay, and used available maps, the existing ones, are limited only to the first World. )

Correct! Even after all those years, no one ever finished the maps of Gangbare Goemon! It's the only MSX game without full maps... (yes, they will be missing in my book as well).

Make the map? By playing the English version...

No way. 49 levels, that would be taking too much of my precious time.. And adding at least 49 extra pages to the book :-)

But are all 49 different ? And I wouldn't mind another 49 pages added to a book that's already 800 pages Smile

But it is strange indeed, this game has no complete maps. Is there a reason for it? Is the game too hard or not interesting enough to players to make maps of it, I wonder.

The reason is probably the game is so big. It would take a LONG time to create a complete map.

I only remember 6 stages with the sixth level having ZPC8TV.4T as a password. The password will only work on european machines and the MSX-Translations version will not accept the password.

15-21: Settsu Province
22-28: Omi Province
