Ahh ... that "game" with a lot of faces, Is this like the ones from Disney?
The MSX 'developer sites' seems to be VERY Bizarros.

GROW game.
Particularly, I prefer the SPY type of game.The one that each character is face-off and can blow a type of enemy, for example mines can't move but their will explode when someone try to conquer (pass trough) them! Airplanes could fly, there is tanks ... This game was ported to MSX2 computers. GUNJIN ,MSX-FAN DISK MAGAZINE gave a (compressed) copy of this game.

Another nice game is Akanble Dragon

I wanted the old "OVERSCAN" sport games, don't know where to find them ...
