Not really, unless it's really the MSX version they ported.... Yie Ar Kung Fu was released on other platforms as well Smile

Still, MSX gets mentioned on a website that usually does not report on MSX. So I think it -is- a valid MSX in the Media nominiee. I dunno if it's a winner, but I'll add it to the list of nominees anyway Wink

Maybe it's also nice to mention that in Japan a whole range of konami games are playable on mobile phones; Quarth, nemesis 1, salamander, parodius, yr kungfu, kings valley 1, penguin adventure (1st version), and so on, and so on.

What about PuddleLand then? It is also an original MSX game and is available for mobile phones Wink
And you can see a nice 'MSX' entry in the highscores (1st place of course)

Cool, another remake of a old game.
There is a NES version of this game.

Thanks for the translation! Wink

Guillian... we'll never forgive you for making a version of a MSX game never released for MSX, you know ;P

By the way... I didn't know 'Puddle Land' is a game 'Lode Runner' style... :?
