Benoît Delvaux (mars2000you) has updated the MSXblue website with several downloadable BASIC listings that were previously published in the French multi-system computer magazine Hebdogiciel. The listings added so far are:

  • Combat Aéro-Naval - Play a nautical battle as either a boat or an airplane
  • Gallery - Fight your way through a cave without running out of fuel
  • Jimmy Quest - a platform game in which you have to collect an awful lot of keys
  • Mars Landing - a variation to the classic moonlander genre
  • Poker 5 - The variation of the card popular game where you can keep your clothes on
  • Tom et Cherie - The game that certainly wins the originality prize, as you are a plumber who has to risk his life by dismantling bombs in order to allow your cherie to have some comfortable personal time in a bath. Plumbers and games, always a good combination...

Tom et Cherie is a conversion of Nichibutsu arcade game FRISKY TOM. So maybe not any winning in originality. Wink

I am sure that chap will get really "frisky" when he sees his lady taking a bath!!! LOL!

Whoops, never heard of that game before Wink. Be that as it may, the original game was certainly conceived by someone with a vivid imagination Smile

Now when I think about it, Frisky Tom surely has been a "father" to famous Commodore 64 game, SUPER PIPELINE. Though that game doesn´t have women. Wink But change the enemies and looks and something else a bit and you´ll see, that it surely is the same game! Hmmm... Super Pipeline II has classic men like women joke in one of it´s MANY interludes. Smile Yeah, and that woman is a blond in that interlude.

Yeah, "port" that Frisky Tom to MSX, please! Big smile Or Super Pipeline, thank you! Smile

I know that Splash game, but I must say that it is just a bit similar, clone with it´s own idea. It´s a good little game in it´s own, but I have grown up with Super Pipeline and so I just must say that Super Pipeline is far better and has far more to do!! Smile Please play it someday!! Smile

I know, that it looks too easy on that video, but please note, that it is played by experienced player. Just let few beetles or little chaps escape to the ceiling and problems begin! :) That little chap drops some blockade stuff which prevents water flowing and beetles run around trying to drop you and your helper and that big crab is just indestructible. Average player soon lets some enemies to climb to ceiling and then one must concentrate to open blockades and then more little chaps climb up and etc until there´s too much going on around you and you lose a life.... ;) Later levels have protective walls to cover beetles and little chaps and even later levels have moving protective walls and even before that enemies become faster and faster.... :D GREAT GAME!!!!!!!!!!! MSX just NEEDS it!!!!! :D :D

I just played Tom et Cherie, Very Nice BASIC game!! Smile Now I make you guys jealous, I just saw blonde in the bath!!! Big smile She didn´t have (at least visible one) bra like in the arcade game. Wink And she winked her eye to me!! Tongue By the way, sadly there is one nasty bug. When I go to mop the floor (Very Nice touch indeed!!!!Smile) I can´t put the mop back hanging to where I took it. :-( And thus I can´t climb anymore, just mopping around until bomb explodes.... :-/
