Let´s think what could be the MOST MSX game ever made!

I don´t mean games which audio-visually pushes MSX to it´s limits, but simply the game which is far more MSX related than any other MSX game.

Maybe I ruin this topic now for telling my decision for that game, but I think there can be just only one game:

BREAKOUT! THE GREAT COMPUTER ADVENTURE

by Toshiba by the way.

Everything in this game happens INSIDE dear MSX!!!!!!! Big smile And it includes Tosh! ( I have never seen Tosh in Finland thought.... )

Nice game with GrEaT graphics! Smile

Unfortunaly, this game is not fully MSX standard, because it needs RAM in slot 2, what is not the case of most MSX computers ...

If there is no such list yet, perhaps we could start new topic for that kind of list. Smile

Then there is a list of games for RAM in slot 2. Wink

There is another Toshiba game that requires RAM in slot 2 : Checkmate !

Other curiosity : Games Designer requires RAM in slot 0 or 1.

I would rather see a project to convert these games to run on all MSX models instead of list of games, that work only on some models... This kind of list can be quite a hard to make, because I think there are quite a many different versions of these games, that require some special layout.

Ah, this is not MSX game! MSX VDP does not have direct connection to disk drive. :P

Well, at least I found three other games that run on MSX2 machines with RAM S2:
*Antarctic Adventure
*Druid
*Ganbare Goemon

Original ROM games do not care about where is RAM because they just use RAM on the 3rd page (C000h onwards) and they assume that it has been already located by the BIOS boot sequence.

However I'm afraid you're not talking about ORIGINAL games Wink

next we should start to think the fact that game was published by Toshiba, big MSX manufacturer which build one of the biggest selling MSX machines.... :P Think it, such company publishes game which tells people wrong information about MSX...... ;D
