Mr. Mole is the title of his game, a Break-out clone starring a mole. The game is available in two versions: 128KB ASCII8 ROM, and 128KB KONAMI SCC ROM. Additionally, a sticker is supplied, as well as a manual in both the English and Spanish language.

Nice to see another MSXDEV '07 entry Smile
I've played it a bit, stopped at cave 11. If you're planning to update this game before the deadline like you did with Monster Hunter, you might want to know there's a bug: if the ball directly hits a 90 degrees corner with an angle of 45 degrees, it will usually go through, even through a wall (it'll be stuck in it for a while with a phone ringing sound). Another thing, unrelated to that bug, out of sheer (bad) luck I got stuck in the left section of cave 08.. would have had to reset the MSX if it weren't for meisei's reverse Wink

Nice to see a new breakout game! I particularly like how the power-ups (magnet etc) show. Well done!

So, why is it 128kB? What's in all those bytes? Or is the (level) data not compressed?

The scc version RARs to 25KB, the psg version RARs to 24KB, that's even more scary.., 1KB compressed for the extra scc channels Tongue

Very nice game.
Sometimes, I think that the MSX deserve more (FREE) games like this one ...

For some reason, the title screen resemble those Mole-Mole games (that people need to hit a number from 1-9)!
