SG-1000 re-convertions

Celebrating ICON Game's victory on SBGames Independent Game Festival, two re-convertions from SG-1000 were just released! The first one is Three Dragon Story, a knightmare style game, with several improvements:

  • new intro screen
  • adapted cool colors on MSX2 or higher
  • correct timing on MSXs with turbo
  • cheat mode
  • removed the annoying screen blinking on last stage

Also, if you want to see the game how it is, just hold SELECT while the game loads. This game will probably be released on Shockware.

The second game is Dr.Hello, a Dr. Mario clone. Both games can be downloaded at The MSX Files.

you deserved the PRIZE.
congratulation.
good job.
well done, you saved scot.
but please, remove msxfiles link, as the site has WAREZ, like metal gear 1,2, gradius and many others for download, and this games are copyrighted and available for the psx.

Cheat mode... press the [HIDDEN, not going to tell it!] key to activate it, and get infinite shots, all weapons, infinite armor...

Please remove the above sentence about your conversion.
IT IS NOT TRUE! You just missed three weapons!

*PLUS* your timings at the title screen are wrong. Takes too much time at the title screen before showing the automatic action

Hmmm, we reported a download of my ROM from your IP...
Should I include a checksum on my release to prevent it to be modified with a "(C) Icon Games" on the title screen?

muffie: enough now! A bit of a healthy race or competition between 2 developers can be all nice, but let's stick to that: a healthy competition (and I'm not sure whether SLotman sees things here as a competition anyway). So, I suggest you just code on, and try to impress with your own merits, rather than trying to 'win' the competition by ridiculing and/or annoying your opponent.

Si? Wink

No, I'm merely conducting the discussion (the obvious muffie vs SLotman situation) to remain within reason, to prevent situations no-one's waiting for. So again: let their creative output do the talking instead.

I hope that either Slotman or Muffie starts creating a new game for MSX. Since they hate them themselves, they'll start to compete and we'll soon have dozens of new games. Wink

I Finally had the chance to test the other version of Jungle Hunt... and I could tell that the other guy included some really nice features:

* removed the annoying player start-up music on Jungle Hunt
* removed the annoying scroll smoothness when jumping from one rope to another in Jungle Hunt

1) When you press the start keys (1,2,3...) player is with his arm up waiting for the game to start. To all owners of bitwise cartridge: Originally there's a music there!!
2) When you jump from one rope to another, that slowdown on the game IS NOT NORMAL! The more recent conversion does not have that bug neither the original coleco version...

Bitwise should recall all owners to offer a free change of the ROM file inside the carts...
