Another rare games has been dumped, but from a SMS cartridge:
Sky Fighter by Clover 1990
This game was clearly programmed for the MSX and then ported to the SMS, because intro screen shows "PUSH SPACE KEY".
This was one of the "misterious" games with advertising on magazines.
This shot-em-up is a very quick scrolling and challenging game!
It shows multicoloured sprites, many different bonuses, weapons, Zanac-like scenario, etc.

So, the MSX version still has to be dumped?

Hmmm, Since I really loved the Zanac-series, I'd like to play this game Smile

The game seems to start fine, but I can't say it reacts to the SPACE BAR :)

It proves two things :

1 - the game was initially for MSX, this conversion for SMS (and SF-7000) has forgotten to remove the classical PUSH SPACE KEY
2 - WebMSX doesn't emulate a keyjioystick (no any option available to enable and configure it)

PS - Try with the mouse, it's acrobatic !!!

Doesn't this look like a hacked version of MSX Zanac that has been ported to SMS?

I had the same idea when I saw the screenshots. But actually playing it just made me realise it's just a bad look-a-like. It doesn't play the same. Still fun though Smile

I have made a temporary ROM for the Musical Memory Mapper users.

SkyFight4MMM.zip

Launch it with SG1000.COM. The game and sounds work perfectly. Only player 2 is not supported right now.

Music is a mental torture even with the original sound chip. LOL!
