.... or something.

Well, as MSX fanatics we're all big fan of Konami games, not?! Sure as hell I am!
I thought I had now seen all Konami games or at least heard of... but then I found this funny one:
it's a time attack on a konami game called Wai Wai World, by Konami 1988 on Nintendo platform.
check the vid and scan through those 35 minutes of fun...

is it Vampire Killer? Is it the Goonies? or wait, can it be Kingkong ? Twinbee perhaps?
it's all there! the player can choose between various characters (which he/she has to set free at first). Each character comes with it's own musical tune, and even some familiar gfx here and there... now wait a darn minute... isn't that.. jup, it's simon belt and more Konami friends.

Have fun, I know I did.:evil:

Hello MeitsNearDark,

Famicom (Family Computer) is the name of the 8 bit Nintendo console for japanese market and NES (Nintendo Entertaiment System) is the name of this system for Europe and America. Is the same system with the typical design differences for each market. As Patsie said, Nintendo is the maker.

Contra/Gryzor is there also (see the final boss) and I even sensed some Metal Gear flavour at the very end, when the main character has to get to his ship while there's some emergency counter counting down Wink

Apart from the huge design difference, the famicom (for sure the prettiest of the 2)
also has a microphone built in one of the controllers, which enables you to shout some
stuff and hear it on rumoured, some games used speech recognition (zelda)
but I am not sure.

That microphone is just a 1 bit level detector, not a speech recognizer or being able to hear yourself on tv. Very few games used it, most notably indeed the Japanese Zelda, where you can kill the 'Pols Voice' enemies if you shout into it.
