We like parents that teach their children how to use a computer, but we really love when parents show how to make a game using MSX-BASIC.

Bloody Mary is a good example of that as Danilo Angelo, father, has been teaching his ten years old daughter the MSX-BASIC language and then he encourage her to apply this knowledge in order to make a game. And, finally she made it!

The main objetive in the game is to give as many glasses full of blood as you can to the thirsty Mary before time runs out. Problem is that Mary is always changing her position around the screen after a couple of seconds, so we must move the glass very fast to catch her up and give her favourite drink.

Oooh I had seen some of the videos on Youtube, but I didn’t expect it to be an MSXDev entry. Awesome!

Hint: you have to use the up cursor key to give the drink.

I might be considered biased as Danilo is an internet friend and that we usually talk over Whatsapp on a MSX group and on a Intellivision group, but I really think this is really quite an achievment, it really is his little daughter work and he did not code anything. Kudos to Lady DarkBite! Cool

Thanks all of you. You've been very very kind to Lady DarkBite, and we all deeply appreciate it!

@ducasp: To be fair, I DID write the code to build the sprites (not the code to show/animate them) and I did the transformation from BAS to ROM format. But, anyway, Lady did all the rest.
