The screenshot looks very nice; that colourful player 'sprite' is lovely.
Is this game more so created from scratch with MSX architecture in mind, where Corona seemed to take off at the top of Spectrum possibilities (and got improved especially for MSX later on)?

@Demon: This one is supposed to be a larger adventure than La Corona Encantada (hundreds of screens this time!). The gfx engine is a mixture between La Corona Encantada (no scroll) and Invasion of the Zombie Monsters (pattern based engine). If you want to see something similar, search YouTube for El Capitan Trueno (Spectrum) ingame videos. In the other hand the gameplay will include action, exploration and puzzle solving: you can obtain passwords to save your game progress, status and some other data, such as money or side quests stats. So this game is a mix of La Corona Encantada (exploration and background story), Invasion of the Zombie Monsters (pattern based action with big sprites and enemies) and Esta en la Caja/Pantano (dialogs and deeper ingame story), Wink

@ viejo_archivero
That sounds interesting! Playing La Corona Encantada, I enjoyed the puzzle element with the levers. So with some extra emphasis on action, I guess it would be even more fun. BTW, on YouTube I only found MSX footage of El Capitan Trueno.
