Is it an MSX port of this ColecoVision version? If it is, that's very impressive!

a little too expensive for me, so I'll stick with playing Joust on my Atari 7800.

Looks really great for a MSX1 game though, the sound beats the Atari version! Smile

SN76489 sounds do not go through the OCM/Zemmix... We don't know why...

I do my best to make good price. But new hardware = new costs = more expansive.
