Two games, as they could not be more different, they also tell of the culture of their places of origin.
I like the Star Soldier game. Schottere were very popular for MSX1 in Japan that time. This top-down MSX1 shooter never seems unfair. I never noticed the insufficient scrolling at that time, on the contrary: enemies move fluently, the background wobbles in 8bit time.
The recurring piece of music is unfortunately a little annoying, but that was quite common at that time and leaves me time to appreciate my record collection.
The Wreck was a daring disappointment to me, I could not ignore the scrolling. There was a much better representative of the (still new) genre:
ASCIIs 1983: "Illegus episode IV" the only commercial game that uses Screen 3 I know.
Nevertheless, you have found two wonderful additions to your collection.

yes the wreck seemed like an Atari 2600 game for me and I could't figure out how to play it
very basic graphics and sounds but I think its the first European game I have for my MSX
Star Soldier looked like any msx1 shmup from that era basic graphics and music but loads of fun Smile

another cartridges I found last month

As mentioned on Generation MSX, the cartridge version of Star Soldier was released in Korea by Zemina without having a licence from the Japanese company Hudson Soft. In Japan, the game was only relesased on BeeCard.

Remember the times, when 64k was as big as a shoebox and cost a month's wages?
