Yes, Theme Hospital :-) I like it too and I had allways the idea, if someone would make such a game for my MSX, then it would be cool.

The problem with those Theme'anything' and 'anything'Tycoon games on MSX1 is that is TMS isn't suitable for that. The problem on MSX2 is the maximum amount of pixels you can copy around. Simulations like these could really fill up the whole screen with entities if they all happen to be at the same spot. In fast mode, you can copy appr. 5KB per int on screen 5. Let's say you'll have 25 or 30FPS for your game-updates, then what you can copy around is 10KB.. that's like 200x100 pixels.. in FAST mode. Round/irregular sprites can't be done 'fast' so what you can copy is far less. Naturally you need a backup/restore system if you're going to move things around, so that also adds to the pile o' thingies. You could use sprites, but the max sprites on a row limit is a bit of a problem. For nice sprites you kinda need 3 sprites so you'have 3 colors per row. Usas/Vampire Killer/Metal Gear/Contra etc. proves this niceness. But as said: with simulations you never know whether all the entities are going to be at the same spot. Flickering sprites is the last thing you want.
So, while they're cool games (I certainly spent some time with Tycoon!), there's a reason why they ain't here yet.

G9k might be an option tho, but I don't quite see it happen yet for a while.. Sad

A "Hidden Agenda" like would be very easy to implement. Even in Basic. Smile

That "doom" for spectrum is very, very poor. I got that demo, and it's not near a finished game (lacks decent collision, no enemies, etc)

And remember, Spectrum video is faster than MSX1 or MSX2 video. We would need at least ADVRAM for that Sad

As for MSX games, I couldnt care less about RPGs - there are tons already. Same for shooters or tetris clones.

I agree, platform games (like Vampire Killer, the Cure, Contra, etc) are nice, and there are few games for MSX in that style (specially MSX2).

Some classics from other machines could be ported to MSX2, just choose the one you like Smile

I'm doing my part, this month I should release Atomix and Carmen San Diego (finally!) for MSX... both have temp pages (with screens) on my site.

If I get more free time - I just won a gaming festival with my PC game "Virtual Marbles" (Bola de Gude in portuguese) and I am veeeeeeeery busy right now with it - I'm certainly doing more stuff this year Smile

Slotman, there is a Doom for Spectrum (for the Russian clone Pentagon) which has music, enemies, etc... and it's not this game which a image appears in this thread.

Actually, I've finished some years ago the complete game, which has a very big level. Unfortunately, it has never finished, but is impressive. The "other" Doom, yes, it's very very very poor.

Well, talking about your games I waiting them :D I've enjoyed a lot BreakFree ;)

- A turn-based war game like Advance Wars (Game Boy)Fire Emblem is way better ^^

Yeah, the one in the thread is the one I tested...

Wow, this one actually looks VERY good! Edit: I found it, going to test it on a emulator to see how it goes :)

Thanks! If I get enough spare time, there will be A LOT of games by me this year... all depending on time, really :)

hmmm... I just played, and it's not doom Smile

It's wolfstein with doom graphics... doom has different heights on the floor, there are "columns" and windows on walls... this is just the old "flat wall and fixed sky/floor" wolfstein uses.

but very impressive anyway Smile
