What a amazing work!
It's funny when that little animal drags the loser off the track. Great! Balanced gameplay. I'm hoping for a release as a cartridge.

Glad they made it to the deadline!!! Have only played a little bit, but it moves very fluidly too! Looking forward to play some more of it!

Cool! Palace Software's Barbarian is a classic and I love seeing it cloned for the MSX2. Smile This game is very fast-paced compared to the original, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I did find rolling to be a bit too fast and unnatural looking. All in all, great job! Smile

If you want the slow paced original speed (easy skill mode), you may boot the game pressing F1 (please take a look at the game manual). Wink
