Really great, only one question, why does it need MSX2?

Hmm as far as I can see: probably the sprites-per-line, and some darker shades (cyan, yellow).

It may also work on msx1. But I use the palette "same as" a zx spectrum. On old vdp this is not possible (.And the original (zx spectrum) works in PAL mode so music in NTSC plays a little faster. I'm using the register setup in PAL. On older MSX models, this is also impossible

Well, I really love the color you used there.

Thank you! Some people say that the ZX spectrum palette is very "acidic" or "rip out your eyes" Smile2 Smile2 Smile2

Well, I don't mind at all Smile I also prefer to play a lot of MSX1 games with MSX2 settings due to the more saturated colors. Anyway... looking forward to the release of your game.
Would you mind btw if I add the game when it's released to my MSX Homebrew site?

Just for curiosity, did you port the game from scratch or is in some way an almost direct port from original code? I ask this because the next question is direct: should be possible more Spectrum ports like this? Smile

Spectrum has a big catalogue, it should be really nice! Congrats for your work BTW Smile

Of course, this is almost a direct port. A lot of people already ask me, what about DIZZY on MSX? Wink

Dizzy's saga are nice games indeed. If your engine uses hardware+software sprites you can get really colourful gameplay, could be cool to see such enhancements in a direct ZX port to MSX Smile
