One of my favourite played MSX games in the 80′s was Athletic Land. It was kind of special to me, partly because no one else liked to play it and when I did I had it all to myself without other children nagging for their turn to play.
Long before we met Mortal Combat and Street Fighter, there was a game on MSX, perhaps one of the earliest fighting/martial arts games, by the name of Kung Fu. I almost forgotten all about it then one day it just passed through my memory and I began searching my list of roms for it. The [...]
The Goonies game on MSX was one of my favorite and most special games back in the 80′s. One reason being was that I actually did complete the game back then and it might just be the very first game I’ve ever completed! The Goonies was based on a very popular 80′s movie by the [...]
If I have to pick one video game that sums up my childhood, it would be “The Castle” on MSX Sakhr computers. I love everything about this game: the soundtrack, the memories, the little dude who can
One of the ten most popular games of MSX in the old days was probably King Valley. You know him, the little adventurer who goes inside the pyramid and collects orbs that open up a gateway to the next room while trying to dodge mummies. We called it King’s Valley even though we didn’t speak [...]
In the 80′s two things were a big hit: Rambo and the MSX. It is no wonder that MSX had a Rambo game back then and given that I was -and still is- a Rambo fan I loved the game so much. So much in fact that I think the cartridge was fried from being [...]
Ahh my first ever car racing game! It was very primitive yet very hard to play. Check out the animated people in bathing suits above :p We used to call it “Sebaq Sayarat” athary its name is “Road Fighter”!
One of my favorite games on my MSX was The Circus! This little cheery clown jumping through hoops of flames or balancing over a rope with a smile on his face! My dream was to reach the ending of
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, [...]
One of the most famous and loved games on MSX is The Penguin. Everyone I know would remember “El Ba6reeq” with the fondest gleam of their eyes! I remember back in the day that we didn’t own the cartridge -I don’t know why- but two of my cousins did and luckily one of them was [...]
I really doubt anyone would remember this game. Its simply ancient! When I first discovered my MSX emulator I started remembering my old games and searched for them by name. However this game I didn’t remember. Then one day as I was playing it just hit me: there was a game with baloons! There was [...]
Ever wanted to see the ending of the Castle? Watch this video, the guy finishes the game in five minutes and the song he chose is hilarious, totally makes sense :p
Only someone born in the 80′s would remember this game. Ah, to be 7 again playing with all your heart and drinking KDD Mango Juice <3 Don’t you miss this game?! I think i want to play it on my Emulator just for old times sake.
I was going through a box of old junk the other day when I found the above cartridges!I was immediately pulled back in time to my childhood. Lazy summer mornings, us in Pajamas waking up to run downstairs and turn on the tiny TV and the MSX Sakhar computer, playing all day long while sipping [...]
