That is cool especially as it seems to be on MSX 1.
Hopefully there will be a tape release or ability to convert the file as I only have tape loading on my HX-10.

Penguin Adventure is probably the best GFX game I have seen so far that shows the MSX 1 could kick Specify butt if not for all the lame ports that were usually done!

I hope that they release the source so that it can be ported to the MSX-alike systems such as the Einstein, Spectravideo and Memotech.
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.
