Does anyone know where the game War Head is from?

I found it in a DSK file. It's marked Pony Canyon but I don't think it was sold as is.
The presentation image (in SCREEN2) is corrupted and there is POKE-1.170 which is useless for this game in the loader.

I converted the game to ROM.

It might have been a tape game, like Fruit Panic.

Thank you!

While looking for info, I came across Phi, a puzzle game that I didn't know.

I added an autoexec.bat.

It is for MSX turbo R. Keys are : Cursor, Z, X, ESC and RETURN. Joystick is also usable.

The game is actually for MSX (Do add a KANJI ROM tough).
Only for speed issues, MSX Turbo-R is recommended.
