MRC user bestiarum from Brazil recently discovered the existence of the MSX computer system. While playing numerous games on it, he felt the MSX is really amazing and fun to play with, studying about it and also learning some MSX BASIC came naturally. Soon, his mission was to build a simple game for this old but precious system: Aglos

About Aglos,

  • The goal is to reach the top of the mountain and kill the evil god
  • Defeat random enemies and use the correct magic and regular attacks to defeat them fast
  • Increase your attack, defence and buy new magic in the process.

Story line,
In the palaces of Aglos, there resides the one that should not be remembered. His love for cruelty is the reason for the misfortunes of the world of Acad. All the others perished, you are the last warrior, the last who knows the truth. The lord of all things still sleeps. There will be no other chance. Your sword was anointed. The heart of God is exposed. There is no turning back. 100 men entered these halls, only one lives. Legions of evil guard the way. Choose your enemies wisely. God must die, or the world will cease to exist.

How to Play,

  • Game is on diskette
  • Just load the DSK file on drive A
  • Type: LOAD"G.BAS",R

The game is available for free, and the developer would love to know what you think of it!

Nice and interesting.
But, I think the .Bas files should not be in Ascii format for fast loading. Smile
However, a nice work.

Thank you all very much! This is the first time that I program something in BASIC. I still have a lot to learn.
