One of the most missing Konami game is now available for MSX ! GYRUSS is here in cartridge enhanced version !

Based on the Colecovision version this MSX cartridge is enhanced by the embedded SN76489. So original sounds and music are preserved. More ! We add the missing sounds by the use of the MSX PSG chip.

- A loud blaster sound was added, just like on the arcade game.
- A enemy destroyed sound was added

Also, the font characters was changed to the well known Konami 's font.

Check video gameplay from here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1l7MVGLuiBc

Thus, we have here a very good GYRUSS game for MSX... I was waiting for this game for so much time ... It's now reality (Thanks to GDX for converting the game to MSX)

This cartridge version works on any MSX with 64K of ram.
(Added sounds doesn't work on onechip/Zemmix neo )

Two cartridge versions are available for pre-order.
Only 20 cartridges available.

Gyruss in blue cartridge 10 units.

Gyruss in Orange cartridge 10 units.

For the 10 first buyers I will add a papercraft model to make your own "papercraft mini arcade cabinet"
A Do it yourself gift ! You will have to cut, fold, and glue the papercraft to build yourself your mini arcade cabinet !

Price is 34 €
Shipping cost : 8€ for EU - 9 € for Other Countries
Delivery : end of april 2017.

Personally I don't mind fan remakes or ports of old games, if they are released for free. Making profit from it is disrespectful to Konami.

The price of the cartridge should be conceived to not make profit, what means only including the price of the different hardware components + the shipping. Nothing in this price can be related to the game itself, its conversion and the time required to make the cartridges.

Taking into consideration that they have developed hardware, made the cartridge, artwork and the low volume I hardly can consider it "profit"...
Anyway, you don't have to buy it...

And it actually is released for free as well. You can have a go here: http://file-hunter.com/MSX/Gyruss.html

Let's try a different perspective then: tfh would you be ok with it if this game was Eggbert? An enhanced rerelease, sold without your permission, you get no money in return. Price 34 euro, taking costs into consideration:
- enhanced walking sound: 2 euro
- enemy destroyed sound: 5 euro
- well known Fony's font added: 5 euro
- photoshop artwork: 10 euro
- hardware costs: 12 euro

You don't have to buy it. If you don't like this just walk away. oO

New enhanced version do not need SCC.
It use PSG + embedded SN76489 sound chip of the cartridge. So new sound effects were added and the music is never muted.

One big miss of the Colecovision version was there is no sound where player fire on...
We add the same type of sound as on the Arcade version... a very loud blaster sound... I like it so much !
