Mr. Do! conversion

In 1982, Universal released the game Mr. Do! on arcade machines and ported it afterwards to several popular computersystems of that time such as the Atari 2600, Commodore 64, Apple II, Colecovision and MSX. The MSX port, that was published by Colpax, was a slightly tuned-down version of the game where some elements such as a 2 player mode and difficulty settings were not included. Recently, MSX user GDX ported the Colecovision version of the game to MSX in order to get the true Mr. Do!-experience including the aforementioned 2 player mode and difficulty settings.  

The conversion is based on the Mission Colecovision emulator for MSX and features some nice improvements such as improved support for keyboard and joysticks. Also, a turbo mode is available for Turbo-R and some MSX2+ machines.

It's not the same as Dig Dug... But it's definitely similar.

No any problem with 2.8.3 beta.

When "GAME OVER" is displayed, press on RETURN.
