Tema: Software
Idiomas:

Stevedore works at the docks, loading and unloading ships in a small coastal town. He is in love with the beautiful lighthouse keeper. Today is the annual summer party, and Stevedore is hurrying up to finish the job and go to the party with her. Suddenly… the floor cracks under his feet...

Help Stevedore find the keys to get out of the abandoned warehouse.
The lighthouse keeper is waiting for him at the lighthouse.
Or isn't she? What other adventures might happen!? Good luck, Stevedore!

Stevedore requires a MSX machine with 8K RAM and 16K VRAM.

The cartridge is presented in a luxurious package and a color manual. Expect the best quality packaging from the MSX Cartridge Shop.

The video can be directly generated by the emulator, you only need to upload it to Youtube and voilà Wink

I did, but I was unable to play the video or use it within the video editor (just audio).
A codec-related issue, I guess; but couldn't find proper decoder (Windows 10).

Xvid4 works for me. Note that usually I create videos with BlueMSX...

Given what the docs says (32-bit codec), it sounds like you need to find a program that can use the 32-bit codec, take the lossless file, and convert it into a format that your video editor accepts.

Hi, hashem!
Congratulations on reaching so far already! You are halfway there!!!

hashem wrote:

All the stages can be solved without "pixel perfect" jumps (mainly because I hate them, haha). Of course, some stages allow more than one way to solve them, and some solutions may require perfect jumps... but there is always at least one solution without them.
The pixel perfect jump is 4 chars wide. In that stage, the hardest jump is a 3 chars wide + 1 char up, that shouldn't be really hard (the margin is about 6 or 7 pixels, and previous stage features several of that).

If you are still stuck, maybe we can open a new forum thread with a big "spoilers inside" warning, haha!

I guarantee you it has a solution without perfect jump.
I don't know how are you trying to solve STAGE 21... so, if you want, send me a mail with a picture of the situation before that jump, and I'll send you back the solution.

I guess you have already killed the sea urchin once with the box on your way to the left of the screen...

SPOILERS AHEAD

The respawning spot of the sea urchin is higher than the ground. If you kill it again with the other box, it will respawn OVER that box...

You can make it jump (once) when it's over the box, and then you can safely move the box.

I'm enyoing this game a lot, it's quite addictive!
Why not having a password per level? Like in King's Valley, for example. So far I haven't seen any after more than 10 screens... unless I'm missing something or perhaps there's some trick I haven't found yet.
In any case, congrats for the game Nestruo and wonder, it's great Wink

I'm aware that many of you would like a digital edition. But after thoughtfully considering it (it is not an easy decision), I'm afraid that a digital edition will not be available for the moment.
