Why should I bother to use a Spectrum emulator having the original MSX cartridge to play on my MSX (or anyway I could play at some MSX emulator..) with more color?

I guess it's fun for Spectrum fans that they can finally play this game on their own machine. Or something. Smile

Maybe it will persuade them to look for the better version and end up at MSX Hannibal

Tried it, very nice for a ZX Spectrum game and faithful to the original. Smile2

Only sound will be different on a factory state Spectrum 48K, I think (game appears to be using a PSG, which an 48K doesn't have, only 128K / +2 / +3 models do).

I just discovered this. Not bad!!! And I like the inclusion of in-game instructions, keyboard redefinition, etc.
