One of our users pointed us out to a remake of the classic MSX Game Kingsvalley (II) back in March. I was just visiting the Adrenaline Vault and noticed that there is a demo of the final release that you can download. The main difference with the full version that you can buy for $19 at Dexterity Software is that it lacks the level editor.

Another milestone has been reached; we just got past 250,000 unique visitors. Not bad for a site about a 20 year old homecomputer system, huh? Wink Our statistics also show that it took 4 years to get 200,000 visitors, but the last 50,000 came this year already! Wow!
