For this year’s edition of the contest, Spanish developer Fregarni crafted a huge update upon a classic title. Compared to the originals, this port features drastic improvements in both graphics and sound.

To be precise, it’s a re-imagining of a game called Automania, also known as Manic Mechanic. Among C64 and ZX Spectrum users, it was a well-known 80s platformer by Mikro-Gen. It’s part of their Wally Week series, that spans 5 titles in total.

If you'd like to find out more, we humbly refer to the official MSXdev site.

It would be good not to ask for the name when the score is less than 100 for example because at the beginning it is very easy to die and it's boring that the name is asked every time even with a score of zero.

A little sound would be good when the character dies.

It says that the music is played only on MSX2 but that is not the case. What is the true condition?
