Taking into account the info they ask you to provide when you preorder, my guess is that is a military dogtag.

Exactly what I was thinking. What strikes me the most are the excellent graphics. Very clear and bright (the MSX2 palette helped here as well, I guess) and the game speed is really fast and responsive, looking at that video.

Epic catchphrase in there! "Ouch, I'm peeing!"

Just something you could use to escape from a dull conversation... "and then blablablablah, because blah blah, and then blah... but blahlahla, and blah... OUCH! I'm peeing! BRB"

If you do not have received the payment info, try again.
Matra normally answers in free hours, so something has gone wrong

How is the effect @ 1:37 done (blue fading in and fading out like that) ?
I'm pretty sure MSX1 has only 16 colors...

Probably just an added video effect to illustrate the enemy sentries' line of sight, and not actually in the game.

@JohnHassink Pity... But that should've been obvious. Silly me.
Still, when you see what the C64 demo scene manages to squeeze out of an even older machine (Booze Design's "Uncensored" demo springs to mind) it makes one wonder why the MSX can't do that kind of tricks.

But that's another topic.

I have also ordered the game "Prisoner of war". The game does look a little bit on Metal Gear, one of the beautifully games of the MSX!

I've started to play today and I can only confirm that it is another masterpiece...
The gameplay is smooth and the progression perfectly balanced. The plot is intriguing and full of possibilities.
I'm still at floor 2 of the base but I have to say that this game is a must have for anyone who has loved Metal Gear.
Greetings Francisco!!

Ciao Arturo,

You have to dodge the big boxes dropped by the helicopter and shoot to it like a mad with your gun (don't worry for the ammunitions, the wooden boxes on the ground contains ammunitions)
Not too difficult, beated at the the first attempt

Ok
My problem was that the path was blocked by the crates after having killed the boss
But they disappear if you leave the room for a while

Ps
Where to go when you have the mine detector?

Anybody already a hint or comment on the ‘saw’ problem for me (I walked back and forth through the floors and sewer in the game, but I still don’t have a clue what to do)?
