..still DREAMING of Fubsy (or atleast come up with new ideas, but never do anything with them) And, yes, the fuzz is lazy. we all know that.
you know, the thing is we (the fuzz, me in particular) have always been crazy about some 'allround-easy-to-use' "system" for anything which would take more time coding it than the whole project (and therefore killing it)

Take the F-kernel for example; it was build during the development of Nosferatu (another dead project) and look where we ended.
For Fubsy I did build a state of the art Animation-Engine already (including GFX and Sprite objects, even linked and combined.. whatever) It took more time than I actually planned.. okay, now I got this super engine which prolly isn't super at all. but that has to be tested on a reallife project.. one like Fubsy (where I wrote the damn thing for in the first place).. but again, the kernel needed an update and there we go again... sight. WE NEVER GET TO THE POINT.
So we end up having LOADS of music (either Wolf or Knoz products) and a PILE of GFX (mostly my work...), STAGS of great ideas . . .but no code to make it all bind together....

(sounds familiar?) but hell, still dreaming.. still raining..

yeah... there are so much good games on other 8-bit computers just crying to get remaked for msx-1 !

Here are great games!

* TOY BIZARRE (Activision 1984) great single screen platform jumper!

* UP ´N´ DOWN (Sega ´83 or ´84) You drive car on a narrow road and collect flags and wreck other cars by jumping

hello again... guests arrived before I finished previous text... so now I continue...

two previous games and next ones I have played and enjoyed on commodore 64 when I was kid.

* FRED (Indescomp ´84) also on spectrum and amstrad, man with pistol wanders in tombs collecting treasures and searching exit door. Characters are big and funny looking, especially ghosts who have very big nose! Watch out for skeletons and mummies too!

* GHOSTS ´N´ GOBLINS (elite / capcom) Horizontally scrolling game. winged creature steals princess and knight must rescue her of course. You are armed with endless spears and can collect various weapons along the way. Game starts from cemetary where zombies get up from their graves through the ground... c64 version had really atmospheric theme tune, but amiga version had different tune which was not so catchy at all... MSX has only one this style game, "demonia" from microids... but forget it... demonia has colourful graphics thought, but is hellishly difficult to play and can´t compared to ghosts´n´goblins...

* SKRAMBLE I haven´t seen ANY good skrambles on msx... aackosoft/livewire´s skramble sucks big time... and Konami´s Super Cobra is lil better but not very good for long play.... PLLLEEEEEAAASEEEE make colourful skramble for msx-1 !!!! It can´t be too difficult to make at least 2-coloured missiles and spaceships to make good msx-skramble!!!

* WIZARD OF WOR (Bally Midway (´81 or ´82) was manufacturer of original arcade game) C64 version is almost identical to arcade version, and msx-1 version CAN´T BE too difficult to translate!!! CHECK THIS GAME OUT!!! You are spacesuited soldier in arena (pacman like maze) which is infested by horrible creatures whose are trying to kill you of course, and they can shoot back too... there is threatening sound in the background... your only way to survive is shoot every creature in every arena and just like in space invaders, every time you shoot alien, others get more speedy... and at last you must confront the wizard of wor... (there are many of them to kill in this game...) game idea and graphics are really simple but if you haven´t never played this game, I warn you: GAME IS DANGEROUSLY ADDICTIVE !!! (I know that... I was Wizard of Wor addict...)

* Eddie Kidd´s Jump Challenge (Martech ´85) yes.. the game was published on msx too... but check out c64 version which has BIG sprites! Bike and rider are really good animated on c64 and so the feeling is completely different compared msx/spectrum version.... of course it can be hard to use sprites on msx-1 but why not use user defined characters too with sprites to make biker and bike!

* MR. ROBOT AND HIS ROBOT FACTORY (Datamost inc. 1984)
great single screen platform game. walk over all "power dots" on platforms dodging nasty faced fireballs .. there are nice ideas such as trampolines, and up and down going conveyour belts (you can find screenshots in www.lemon64.com) and many BOMBS ! you can use bombs as walking platform of course, but they activate when you step on them, so don´t hang around too long... if I am not wrong, there are 100 levels and what is really nice... level editor which is really simple to use!!! 2:-)

download all these games for c64 emulator and you see why I like to see them converted to msx-1 !!! All those games are not too difficult to make colourful remakes with colourful sprites!! (ok, maybe eddie kidd . ..)

I think msx-1 needs GOOD driving game!!! I don´t know any really good Sega´s "Outrun" style drive as fast as you can driving game which has great soundtrack too! Hyper Rally is not good enough, I think. And msx-1 Outrun... music is only great thing in it.

Are there any good outrun style games on msx-2? except pony canyon´s outrun?

Wec Le Mans on MSX 1 is pretty good if you don't mind the 2 color GFX
