We will play a competitive version, which is limited in many things and only serves to achieve a highscore. This version lets you guess the game.
The finished game will be available in April. The producers will share the game with the best players from all over the world.
In this contest we will collect your scores and send them to bo.design.

Which MSX machine and what controller are you planning to use for the competition? Cool

Since I am bringing clone systems this year, I'm using my SM-X to play the game.
As joystick I prefer the Sony Playstation 1 Arcade controller via adapter. This guarantees a good gaming experience!

And the winner is also shown in this image. Congrats SYN!
I will send all your screenshots to the makers of CB. They will contact the competitors. Thanks for joining!

Thanks for organizing the contest!
The setup was great and I really enjoyed playing Caravan Boomer.
It was fun to see people frantically trying to beat the high score.

So, I hope everybody did send his highscore screenshots? I'm going to surprise Bo.design with it now. I will keep you informed about further developments of the game. Until the deadline is in may 2020. I'm looking forward to a real cool shooter with extra-orbital music.
