Hello, people. I'd like to remember the name of a game...

It's an MSX1 side-scrolling shooter. I am almost sure that the game scrolled left to right, and not right to left as most shooters. At the beginning of the game you could assemble your ship with different parts (something like Girly Block). I think it was a 32 Kbytes game too.

Any tips? And thanx in advance.

Leandro Correia.

What do you mean with this?
If you don´t mean Hydefos, Alpha Roid or Nemesis III, I´m afraid I can´t help you out on this one.

If you don´t mean Hydefos, Alpha Roid or Nemesis III, I´m afraid I can´t help you out on this one.It can't be either of these anyway, because

  1. Hydefos is an MSX2 game on 2 disks
  2. Alpha Roid moves from right to left, and
  3. Nemesis 3 is a 2MegaROM

and every nemesis scrolled from right to left... except at the end of nemesis three giant ship moved to every direction

but the right answer is SCARLET 7 from Toshiba-EMI.

Check it from generation-MSX.

It scrolled from left to right as LeandroCorreia said. Smile

And it really was a great shooter, as you could select TIRES too to your ship, if I don´t remember it wrongly. Smile And amount of weapons to select in Nemesis 3 is really poor compared to Scarlet 7´s. Smile actually you only could select your ship and options and either shield in Nemesis 3, in Scarlet 7 you can build your whole ship from the scratch!!

Was there even ENGINE selection?! And how much ammunition? Do I remember right? :s

and in Alpharoid you cannot select weapons when you start. You only can get those by going into underground caves.
