Is there anything we can say about Konami's classic Penguin Adventure that hasn't been already repeated for countless times? Well yes, since homebrew developer Opcode has ported this gem to the ColecoVision and has also added some things.
Some changes that are being made by Opcode over the original include how continues are handled. Now, they are on by default, no longer requiring you to use a password. There is also a new ending when you beat all 24 levels. Easy mode also gives you five lives to work with while the original MSX game only gave you three.
If you'd like to know more, read all about it on the Retro Gaming Mag site or Retro Game Network.

Maybe we should port the port to MSX to benefit from these enhancements Smile
That would be a "backport" ??

I think both (Pacman Collection and Donkey Kong Arcade) were only released to Colecovision consoles.

I'm pretty sure he was working on an MSX-version too. MSX2 even, if I remember correctly. Ah, indeed, see http://www.opcodegames.com/pacmancol_msx.htm

I remember a beta version was available years ago. It would be nice to know what happened to the MSX version of Pacman Collection.

I believe @opcode abandoned it?

Apparently he sold his entire MSX collection back in 2015.

He seems busy with his ColecoVision Super Game Module (PRO) expansions & conversions.

A shame for sure though, looked promising!

I'm actually looking forward that all MSX games are abandoned so we can freely distribute / play them online.
