Both jurors agreed that the quality of the submitted games are remarkable, showing the effort and talent of the participants.

Here's the top-3 ranking of the 9th MSX-Basic contest:

Wow, really cool games, but that Storm Rescue... It is just hard to believe that someone can do something like this on MSX-BASIC!

Yes, I agree with you. Storm Rescue has better quality than some of the games submitted to MSXDev.

Yes, that was not just allowed, but encouraged.
It's not the only game on the contest that uses it.

This guy is extremely talented but it's not really active among the Brazilian MSX scene.
He builds his own tools and have several other games already built.
Check this screenshot of one of the tools:

He could really use some help (technical) in order to release some of his other stuff. If someone wants to contact him directly this is the email:
