Maybe a western <-> japanese developer thing?

a) Because far into development of the game some MSX game developers thought "what's this goonies movie about anyway?"

or

b) Because Konami knew that, 21 years later, CrappySoft would make a nice MSXdev entry because of it Tongue

commodore 64, atari, spectrum Goonies is originally from Usa and it has only 8 screens. You control Goonies themselves, not Mr. Sloth... and in each screen you have control 2 goonies making them co-operate to solve problems and you cannot freely wander around screens, screens must be solved one by one.

Well, the PC version (Goonies 20th Anniversary Edition) looks a lot like the MSX version. Tongue

Weird! In the MSX version, does the player control Mr. Sloth? Tongue

If the manual says so, he doesn´t looks like Sloth in the movie! Wink

In the MSX version, you also play with Sloth (according to the manual at least), but apparently the game uses coder's art in stead of real graphics, so it doesn't look like Sloth at all Smile

Yes, in the MSX version it is Sloth (I must admit I was surprised as well, I always thought the player was the older brother).
Indeed, the MSX player doesn't look like Sloth, but since the manual says it is Sloth, the Braingames team decided to do
what Konami wanted to do in first place, but couldn't do, whatever the reason was.
