After converting Jungle Hunt from Coleco to MSX (which will soon be available), SLotman from ICON Games and MSX Files is finishing up another Coleco conversion: Montezuma's Revenge! A video of the game has been put on Youtube for us to get an impression of this conversion.

Looks very addictive!. I wonder how hard could be to tweak the graphics a bit once the game has been converted. IMO the coleco games have a superb use of hardware sprites; but they usually have blend background graphics; maybe they could be improved a bit...

Actually, the graphics of Montezuma's Revenge from the Coleco is one of the best of all ports I seen of this game - it's only surpassed by the Master System - but even on that console the graphics could be way better...

Also, there isnt much to be done, the game works on Screen 1 (which actually seems necessary, since there are some rooms with lots of animation on it!)

But one improvement I already did, was to convert the SMS title screen to MSX... Smile

So if the game is originally SC1 then you're right, there's nothing much to do, the tiles are forced to 2 colors...Sad. I'm getting more and more interested on Coleco conversion, maybe a gem like Frantic Freddy could be ported to MSX after all Smile

Great work!
