Tenliner Challenge - #1 Retromania

Tenliner Challenge - #1 Retromania

Five days after we announced the MRC Tenliner Challenge, we have our first entry! The honor goes to our Brazilian MSX fan PlainSpooky with his game Retromania.

He submitted a Space Invaders clone inspired by the Atari 2600 game Megamania and the goal is to catch all classic computers with your laser before they hit you! The game runs on an MSX1 computer with at least a diskdrive. It also nicely demonstrates the extras you gain by using a media file in the challenge.

You still have until December 17th to submit your own entry and have a go at the prizes and eternal fame. So what's keeping you?

Heh, here the "can include one mediafile" aspect of this challenge really shines. Exactly what my original intentions were: "you could as well make it look great by allowing one mediafile". If all entries are going to be like this, we'll have a great new pack o' games, tools, anything.

I thought it was very difficult at first as well, but then I discovered you don't have to shoot all the invaders. You only die if an invader touches you, but not if an invader reaches the ground...
