Óscar Toledo Gutiérrez, known for having developed 3 games for our beloved MSX: Zombie Near, Princess Quest and Mecha-8, is back with Mecha-9 (メカ九 for our Japanese users) in a 128K cartridge.

The storyline goes as follows: while Tricia Thunder fought her way aboard Mecha-8, now it's time for Ryan Rock to help using the powerful Mecha-9 through 6 levels, fighting the most vicious bosses ever. The Mecha-9 is equipped with the strange Time Slip, a powerful weapon that slows down time.

The game includes two endings and comes in three languages: English, Spanish and Japanese (courtesy of B. Shigeru). It uses an improved palette if MSX2 is detected and enhanced music if an FM-PAC cartridge or internal MSX-Music is available.

The author presented the game at the December 2015 at the 48th MSX Users' Meeting in Barcelona, Spain. The physical edition is manufactured by
