Do you ever feel that way?
You discover a new game that actually exists for a long time, you just missed it.
Here I want to give room for such discoveries and start with Jailbreak from Infinite from 2010. I was especially impressed by Wolf's title song.

What have you discovered for yourself in the last few days?

Nice initiative Smile A good way to learn new games. I will go an have a look at Jail Break myself, as I don't know it either. It's not even on Generation-MSX. Only the never released Konami game with the same name can be found there.
I've added it to my homebrew section for the people who want to give it a go as well: Jail Break Online.

Although not very recent, two of my discoveries I made years and years after they were released:

Pengo - I loved playing this in the arcade.
Bubble Rain - Loved a similar game on the Wii.

I wonder how many people ever noticed that sprite cars pass behind objects like street lights... Wink

Pengo is an almost 100 percent port of the arcade game. Bubble Rain comes close as well. Nice to see these pearls!

And Darkstones Pixiedust in co-operation with Infinite, a msxdev entrie from 2012 with excellent music.

Darkstone even started to develop Pixiedust II, wonder if there are any news, Mr. Zett?

A user of the C64 forum drew my attention to a special port of the C16 game Winter Events.
The conversion to the MSX
is amazingly good, even better than the Atari 8bit version.
Since the publisher Anco is from GB, I would have rather expected Spectrum or evenCPC versions.
Anco also made us happy with a strip poker game, but I don't know anything more about this.

Yeah in some 1991 magazines of MSX Magazine you could see some screenshots of PC98(?) pictures and some mock ups(?) of msx pictures... I would soooooo love Sim City to be on MSX... be it for MSX 2 and/or for v9990...
