Blast from the Past: The Hamburger on MSX

By | April 10, 2012

This game wasn’t very popular in the 80’s. Not as popular as the rest of the MSX games that is. It could very well be the last MSX game we ever bought and we called it The Hamburger game.

The little chef needs to climb the stairs and walk all over the bun, patty, lettuce, and cheese to drop them into place and make up hamburgers while trying to dodge the killer pickles, sausages, and eggs who want to eat him.

I remember when I first saw it in my cousin’s MSX. I loved it immediately and made my parents buy it for me. I loved it and as I played it I always imagined myself back in Hardeez ordering burgers which was our weekly weekend treat -the happy meal came with smurfs!-

Come to think about it I still like games that include burgers and burger making “Burger Shop mathalan (post)”. This game was like a very primitive version of Burger Shop :p

Do you remember this game?

    Yeah, it’s actually called Burgertime, see http://www.generation-msx.nl/msxdb/softwareinfo/822

    I mostly played the version by Aackosoft, Mac Attack: http://www.generation-msx.nl/msxdb/softwareinfo/2394 and their re-release Burgerkill http://www.generation-msx.nl/msxdb/softwareinfo/3059

    Where did you buy MSX games back in those days? Just in computer shops?

      There was one computer shop that sold MSX and their games exclusively. It was called Al-Alamiya. I think they were also the developers of the Arabic language educational games. The shop is still around, only it doesn’t sell anything MSX related anymore.
