Earlier we already reported on the first entries to Konamito's MSX-BASIC compo 2012, those entries being the games Knights & Demons and Firefighter. But fortunately, those two entries were not all because there's more MSX-BASIC goodness to be had with 3 more games!

Ninja Love
The third entry to the compo is Ninja Love, by Spanish developer Oniric Factor. You play as a ninja that has to live through all the fires, arrows and other obstacles that your father in law throws on your path, and all you can do to make it through is to jump! Oniric Factor was new to programming on the MSX, but their very first product doesn't show it.

Resurection
Entry number four is Resurection by Dakar Soft. Your goal? MSX world domination. How? Easy. You are running a computer store, and you have to sell more than the competition from that period like the Commodore 64, Spectrum and Amstrad. If you sell more than the competitors for 8 consecutive days, MSX world domination is a fact.

Alicia
The fifth and final entry to the MSX-BASIC compo is Alicia by Jose Soto Gandara (joesg) who also contributed last year with El Juego de Charli la paloma. This time he created a (Spanish) text adventure named Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found there, a game based on Lewis Caroll's famous book Through the Looking-Glass. Although he wanted to stay 100% true to the book, some changes had to be made due to limited space.

With the deadline past us and a total of 5 entries, it's time to wait until March 20th for the jury to decide the winner of the competition. Which game do you think is best? Let us know in the comments.
