I would like to know which games have a version for MSX1 and for MSX2.
I know that there is Nemesis3 which depending on the version of the MSX you can see different coloring.
Or King's Valley 2 that has a different cartridge for MSX1 and MSX2.
Are there other games with these characteristics?

In case of KV2 you really get different graphics, MSX2-bitmap vs MSX1-tiles. Is this a condition? Or are palettes for MSX1+-games also acceptable? Because I bet that quite a few MSXdev'xx-games have some kind of MSX2-palette for MSX2 and up.

Slight detail would be that Montana John has different tiles on MSX2, e.g. an extra shade here and there. This can be seen at the blue title screen and in some of the levels.

Some MSX2 games that use MSX2+ / screen 12 imagery (title screen (+ mid-game visuals?)) when available. Can't recall which Smile

Xanadu, of which the MSX1 version looks about 100x better than the MSX2 one.

I think Quinpl had a couple of bonus MSX 2+ splash screens.

- Dragon Slayer IV: Drasle Family (different cartridges)
- Romancia (different cartridges)
- Pac Mania (different versions for both systems, both cartridge and disk versions exist for MSX2, not sure about MSX1)
- Golvellius (more of a full-on remake, so I'm not sure if this counts; cartridge for MSX1, disks for MSX2)
- Psychic War: Cosmic Soldier 2 (cartridge for MSX1, disk for MSX2, I think?)

That's interesting. I've only ever played the bad Spectrum port on tape for the MSX.
