Did you knew this? Starts at 1:18, later there is a short pause just before the dragon.

Is this real or just a nice looking fake? Could somebody please translate what uploader had written on the video? If it could be real, it looks and sounds very nice, I don´t mind those light blue boxes around characters. :) Looks very "8-bit" though, when compared to Amiga. ;) Those "boxes" give me a nice MSX1 feeling. :)

It is a msx2 game done using hmmm vdp commands. i think is a proof of concept of what one can do with blitter commands. But imho it looks bad, because of the high-speed blit operations. on the other hand the logical commands, that allowed transparency emulation are a pain and cannot be used. there is also a lot of flickering

The speed is pretty impressive but the clipping is a bit annoying. Feedback looks better IMO but I'd love to see a port of the real Space Harrier. I wonder what the frame rate might be using logical commands.
