The 2018 MSX-BASIC contest, start to type!

A few years back, Konamito from MSXBlog.es organized the last MSX-BASIC contest. Request for repeat was demanded. So, this year a new MSX-BASIC contest has started. And, the first entries are already uploaded.

On November 2017, a new MSX-BASIC contest started on msxblog.es. Although there are some minor variations, the rules remain almost intact to the last contest (which was in 2015). In any case, here are the two categories to divide in; publications using native MSX-BASIC and those that use enhanced BASIC like NestorBASIC or MSX-Basic Kun. The competition will involve only games.

For the sad news, the deadline of this contest has just passed; you had until January 14th. Judging has started, publication of the final results are scheduled on the 7th of February. All submitted games will be available for download free of charge and tagged as public domain.

I tried Pegasus. It's awesome for Basic. It makes me think of Andorogynus. By cons, there are several bugs.
The graphics are good. Pegasus would do better with bigger wings.

Pegasus seems buggy, I hope Kotai gives a clean up to the game.
