Radx-8 remake by Mystery Studios

After four months of intense musical labor German composer Manuel Uhl aka TheMysteryStudios has released a great remake again.
In the past he made some very original arrangements of games, some with quite a lot international fame. This time he opted for a game of the Dutch studio Radarsoft which released a few games on the MSX platform during the 80s. One of those games was Radx-8.
What made this game special was the use of MSX2 features such as lots of colors. Therefore this game is coded in screen 8 which is quite unique for an MSX shooter.

It's already a known fact that Manuel doesn't release his music when he thinks it's ok. It has to be perfect. To give it this extra touch of perfectness he invited his wife to play the guitar on track.

Enough reading for now, go watch the youtube clip and spoil your ears.

I like too. But it's funny that it is now so far from the original... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uII-5N7-hKg

Thank you Meits for the introduction! Yes, RADX-8 was really good, especially for a company consisting of one head that did almost the whole work. As I found out, Radarsoft is still alive (performing web projects) and Cees Kramer seems to be the CEO (see http://radarsoft.nl). I have sent an e-mail to them because I wanted to get the name of the original music composer of RADX-8 but unfortunately I didn't get any answer until today.

I still like the game a lot: RADX-8
And not to forget: Breaker. I don't know how many hours I've spent on that game... man... I prefered to play it with my mouse though. Played way much better then keyboard or joystick in this game.

Same here Smile I've spent countless hours on them, especially on Breaker. I also owned the original of that one. Loved the gameplay! Drove my mother crazy with the in-game tune.
