All good things usually come to an end. The people behind Kralizec have been among the experienced regulars to create MSX games, and their output certainly showed quality. Some scene turbulence in 2011 made them decide to close their website for good. While our connection with our old 8-bitter is so big that we couldn't understand leaving it all behind, for Kralizec it was clear as a whistle: "We've had enough."
In the months following this decision, it occurred to Kralizec that somehow people still wanted a place to download Kralizec games, yet they didn't feel like sticking around MSX any longer. Because of that, Kralizec have decided that their software deserves a place where everyone can download. In the past days, Kralizec have given the MSX Resource Center the exclusive rights to distribute their games.
As such, this list is Kralizec's final MSX output. As a bonus, the games come with revised user manuals.
This marks the first time Bombjack is distributed freely. Better yet, this version is slightly but significantly improved compared to the the disk version.
As you see, their Goonies game is included as well. Kralizec wishes to emphasize that only the real physical cartridge has the sound quality they've intended. MSX is indeed a system where the PSG balance may differ, even within the MSX range of a single manufacturer; the Philips 8245 and the 8250 are a well known example of this. The turbo R is 'almost perfect' as they've put it. In a creative way, it's commendable that they take sound balance so serious. Others have added PSG-SCC equalizers in their games, having an 'external' PSG and SCC in a physical game cartridge was Kralizec's solution, one that would certainly honour the work of the composer. And those were Kralizec's final MSX words!
Happy gaming! Perhaps you could, every now and then when you play their games, travel down memory lane, to the golden revival years in which Kralizec was most active!
