MSX Solutions: Colony

Once again does the Walhalla of game maps feature a new map: Colony. At first sight this 1987 game by Mastertronics looks like it's not a large game, but it's nonetheless great to have a map for it. Perhaps looks are deceiving and the actual game time is considerable, at least one famous map maker knows. If only_69 continues at this pace, he'll double his game map database in the remaining months of 2009. Will he be able to sustain this pace, what other maps does he have in store for us? Thrill and excitement await us!

ro, it is an interesting game. i would categorize as strategy/adventure (some kind of simcity). you have to collect mushrooms and avoid the ants from eating them, etc. the mushrooms are then collected by a spaceship that comes to the colony, etc....

Jon, deal! Next will be Soul of a Robot. I am just finishing to edit one map to be published and then I will start Soul. I have looked at the game and it seems to be a long game.

Wolf, Topple Zip is on the TO DO list also, but I have to take a little rest before doing those shoot-them games maps, because they are very difficult to map and sometimes very boring.

For the sake of information, examples of maps which were initiated and were, for some reason, stopped are: Batman The Movie (All Levels including the car ones), Testament (manuel, I will finish it someday), Gunfright, Malaya no hihou (Now that I got past level 4, I have to try to finish the map) and some others I do not remember right now and are probably lost on my harddisk.

Yes, wolf, but that's the Zemina version.

I'm talking about the Virgin/Xortrapa version.
