Here's the 9th contest entry. It's an MSX port from a ZX Spectrum dungeon crawler game released in 2016, but this time a lot of code has been rewritten.
Guide the hero through 10 levels filled with monsters. Find your way collecting and using keys, fight enemies or avoid them. It’s up to you to survive and reach the top of the Tower.

There is a story of a Tower somewhere in the evil lands, filled with monsters and other magical creatures. Many fighters have entered but no one came back. There are many rumours about treasures and princesses but no one really knows.
This time a new Hero arrived at the Magical Tower, and he will need all the help he can get to kill the boss at the top level of the Tower.

Are you working on an MSX game, or even have one finished? Please consider to submit your work as an entry for this legendary MSX contest, and have the guarantee of a wide audience as possible, gain the attention of potential cartridge producers and even contend to win some prizes!

Humm... the ending is just a text telling you have completed the quest, but after that, I can continue to walk and explore....
Is there a secret mission?

Nice! The puzzle element of figuring out which enemy to attack first reminds me a bit of Desktop Dungeons Smile

No secret missions yet, sorry.

It's meant to be a small* game so that I know everything is working. There was a lot of stuff to test; it is my first game for MSXdev after all.

If people like the game, I can add more levels later. But that will not happen before the end of the competition.

*) I don't think it's small. I tested this game many times and it's still hard for me to finish the game in one setting.
