Another Italian job for the MSX2 system with the new dev entry called Martian War.

With a game concept reminiscent of Space Invaders or Galaxian, if you will, Martian War will have you dispatch aliens by shooting them out of the sky before they do any damage. A unique mode 80 presentation which challenges the player.

You can submit your own work here. Donating to the contest can be done here.

Is it intentional that the MSX hangs upon game over?

Thanks for the feedback.
I tried, tried and tried, but I cannot have the problem.
Can you give me more info about the issue, please?
For example the computer or emulator used...
Thanks

"upon game over" was the wrong statement. The freeze and static screen happens when the player is hit by a Martian's bullet, and it happens on webMSX, RuMSX, and Panasonic FS-A1/Sony HB-F1/Al Alamiah AX370/Philips NMS-8250/Sony HB-F1XD/Sanyo PHC-70FD/Panasonic FS-A1ST on openMSX. The only exception was Panasonic FS-A1GT.

Issue found and fixed.
The crash was when the player tried to move the human ship during its invisible state.
I sent new rom for publishing it.
The new fixed version is avaible on my github address:

I don't understand how you can't reproduce the crash. The game crashes every time when an invader fires on our cannon. Tested with several MSX emulated and on real FS-A1ST.
