I see the MSX2+ logo on the box, does the game use any MSX2+/V9958 capability? Or is just to honour Space Manbow?

Well, changing it to Manbow 2 doesn't solve it Smile

I like the artwork as well, but I do have to say that in my memories, I liked the artwork that was previously posted more (was it Poke who made that?).

I have taken a look at it and I prefer the current design (old artwork here).

Poke is right, it should read 'user manual'.

No, as poke said, it should be "User's Manual". This is how it's done on all products I know, at least.

For me it's very clear that this new game borrows popularity from the original one.

The game gets attention not because of it's own coolness (and it is going to be really cool, according to the previews I saw), but mostly because of positioning itself as a sequel, as a dream that became true.

The only hope is that Konami wouldn't mind this small-scale release.
Do you remember the history of Lindows ?

I think that's why it would've been cooler if it was based more on original content. I mean, making a few nods here and there is never a bad thing (like Epic Megagames' Tyrian having tunes called "Zanacs" and "Zanac3" in its sound test as homages to where it drew its inspiration from), but the whole game tries just too hard to look like Space Manbow.

The user's manual of Manbow2 is still not finished, is it? (the second picture only shows how the covers look like).

And does the box have inner foam/plastic tray holder to place the cartridge? The box seems to be quite big.

No, as poke said, it should be "User's Manual". This is how it's done on all products I know, at least.Really? I always thought the 's in user's isn't used in English. But you're probably right, checked my Konami games, they all state 's.....Sigh Smile

By the way, 'User manual' has a lot more results on Google than 'User's manual' Tongue

My language teacher told me not to trust on google when it comes to spelling...
If it's not there, it doesn't exist. If it is, it exists, but doesn't need to be the right one. No matter the quantity.
