Space Satellite (SM-401T), a Finnish game that was bundled with the Spectravideo SVI-728 which were sold in Finland, was preserved today, big thanks to my buddy Trurl_Ext for providing high quality .wav dumps of his tape.

Manuel, A nice addition to generation-msx Smile

I added an English translation of the original Finnish instructions, many thanks to Google Translate for doing a bang-up job translating it. This might [or might not] help you figure out how to play it *I say this with a grin* Smile

I just noticed that Hose Diogo Martinez is listed @ generation-msx, but Marial Attack, for instance, it's not...
What about Pointless series by TNI? Oh, forget it. They're there...

Manuel, maybe a nice game of Astro Monsters will help you forget this terrible game Smile

I made it to level 6, but it starts to get impossibly hard! (but a good challenge)

NYYRIKKI, very interesting, thanks for sharing that wiki entry. Under "Computer games published by Tekno Point", you can see that they too are trying to forget about the release of Space Satellite Smile

I think this game might have been released for Spectravideo computers as well...

For some odd reason this reminded me about the Finnish children's movie "Rölli - Amazing Tales" that was produced in 1991. This movie was all about friendly forest troll Rölli. The movie also featured an evil wizard that delivered Rölli SVI-318 and SVI-328. (The general quality of software sold here for this computer was so bad that I can't blame telling the wizard was evil)

Here are few frames from the movie:

After this Rölli picks up a bottle of Jack Daniels and gets all drunk... What an lovely educational movie for kids!
