Why did the chicken cross the road? Well, to play MSX games obviously! Nitrofurano's entry to MSXdev'14 is Libreway, an MSX adaptation of Atari 2600 classic Freeway, originally released by Activision. Ideally played by two playes, who can get the most chickens safely across the freeway?

Hohoho... wow... what is this... Frogger on speed, but you cannot die? Big smile
So I went informing myself on "Freeway" for the Atari 2600, and decided this MSX version is cooler. LOL!
Dude, if you can make this, I'm looking forward to your adaptations of other Atari games. Smile

It's basically a 2 player *only* game, which I also discovered only after a while Tongue

these screenshots shows a bug that i don’t know if it is from the game, or from the emulator where these screenshoots were taken - it is expected to look like the screenshot and video i posted that in the Karoshi’s forum thread... :S

@JohnHassink - thanks, i'm really considering - i wanted to start Adventure, and the Swordquest quadrilogy as well (even the missing Airworld, that was planned to be based on i-ching combinations )

@Manuel - that was intentional! Big smile

@ nitrofurano
With both blueMSX and openMSX I get this bug. Could you please send correct screenshots of the title screen and two (or more) in-game moments to me? Then I will change them.

I don't see these bugs in openMSX.... unless I run the game with C-BIOS MSX1 or any other MSX1...
With which machine were the screenshots made in the forum thread?
