I have just released Motkonqe for MSX1. It is a real-time strategy game a little similar to the classic Populous game.
The object of the game is to lead the blue people and beat the red people. You can make the ground and direct your people where to go.
The rom file, the bin file and the source file are downloadable from my site.

Very nice, I like it!

I found few bugs though...

Sometimes there are red enemies that don't move but are not really live either... As you can see there is enemy, but all are dead...

When your troops go between 100-109 the "0" goes missing...

Motkonqe - that must be the name of the game's protagonist. A Xhosa warrior perhaps? Pronounce the q with a click sound for extra effect.

Oh, many bugs! Thanks for letting me know. I did not know it because I did not try to increase more than 100 people. I will find the cause and fix them.

That is a nice imagination. But I generated the title from the spelling of "Conquer" which is the object of the game. Because I am not used to pronunciation of the alphabet, it may seem strange. Question

Very cool!! I see the shields make units stronger, and wood lets you build a new house, but what does the purple item give you? (I am assuming it's food, but what do you get when you take one?)

Yes, it is fruit. The health points of the unit increase. So it will be advantageous at battles. Indeed, it is hard to understand because it is not displayed.

Of course I had to try how many people I can get. :-9 Damn this is addictive game yet again... Once you've played all the fields you just have to start all over again. Smile Your games don't look much and they sound terrible, but you really have the unique skill of making GOOD games that are FUN to play. That is rare and the most valuable skill you can posses in game making. I would love to see you joining your skills especially with some of the music artists around.

About the problem... It seems to me that there is always ruins on the right of the "red ghost"... though I have no idea if this helps to locate the problem or not. May I also suggest adding ESC = Back to main menu?

Some time I also seem to build a house when I'm trying to put down a cue pointer and I'm not on top of empty space... I'm not sure if it is intended or not, but it kind of feels like a bug.
EDIT: Ah, I think this is related to down + X ... It is even documented... Maybe not necessary when playing with keyboard, but not a bug.

I really like this concept of game!! It reminds me to all those hours, red Alert i played! It's very cool! I like to make such a game myself in SymbOS but i don't understand how you should program such self thinking objects.

Really cool! And very nice gameplay!
