Good. Thanks.

The Great Giana Sisters was part of my initial list, but Valis and Valis II should be on the list - without the cuteness-factor though :)

Scrolling in any direction:
- X-Spelunker and the original Spelunker by Irem too.
I don't think there are many more?

Thanks @~mk~, so many! I think vertical only is a subcategory, but certainly a scrolling platformer Smile The list is becoming bigger with all you additions:

Iga Ninpou Chou Mangetsujou no Tatakai - Small Ninja 2
Crusader (smooth scroll from 1985!)
Magical Wiz Kid
Magical Tree
Tensai Rabbian Daifunsen
Spelunker
Flicky
Boggy '84
Mappy
Champion Takahashi's Adventure Island aka Wonderboy
Doki Doki Penguin Land

Does not look like a scrolling platformer :-)

Agree! Solid candidate.

I also found a couple of new ones myself. But I have always had serious gripes with Spectrum conversions :-( I never managed to have fun playing them - I've been too distracted by the color bleed (and ususally slow movement):

And unfortunately they don't have any "cuteness-factor" either :)

Ok, I'll just as well do a little round-up: The comprehensive list Smile

I titled the post "Top scrolling platform games on the MSX". I don't think I will judge, so I'll just list them all up in no particular order - all suggestions that fit into the requirements. Ideally the game would have a "cuteness"-factor, but not a strict requirement, and therefore the list grew up to 35 titles + three unreleased ones. The list below can certainly be split into different categories (like vertical scroll only, spectrum-port, cute, smooth scroll, etc), but I have no need for that atm.

Not released:

If I manage to finish my current project - we have another title to add to the list
