Of the many Contra ports, the MSX version perhaps differs most notably in that taking damage is not instantly fatal. There's also significantly less horizontal scrolling due to the limitations of the system.

You take control of two Knights, Popolon and Aphrodite, out to rescue their baby Pamperse from the evil high priest Galious. They have their own subtle differences in gameplay, but for the most part, they just act as two separate health bars.

The authors, zggzdydp and scrimpeh, run through the game at breakneck pace, taking much more damage than they should be able to.

Metal Gear!? It can't be!

This is the original MSX version of the first entry of the ever-popular Metal Gear series of stealth video games created by Hideo Kojima and developed and published by Konami. In this game, Snake infiltrates Outer Heaven, a fortified state founded by a "legendary mercenary" 200 km north of Galzburg, South Africa, in an operation codenamed Intrude N313. He must find out what happened to Gray Fox, after losing contact with FOXHOUND.

In this movie, however, dunnius isn't very stealthy at all; he goes through numerous alerts in order to reach a time of 26 minutes and 28.05 seconds.

Every one hundred years, the forces of evil mysteriously start to weaken. Though some of these evil creatures band together to counteract this weakness, many of them are still slaughtered by the forces of good. But one day, One, the most evil one, found a way to break this curse and grow only stronger and stronger. Sensing the presence of a cure within the blood of a young woman, he pulled her into the darkness...right before our hero's eyes! Filled with anger, he grabbed his mystical whip and followed One through the night until finding himself at the base of One's fearsome castle. What evil awaits him there? Will he save the girl in time?

The goal in each level of this MSX homebrew game is to find the cleverly hidden white key and use it to open the door to the next level. There are also items that can be picked up along the way to help our hero in his quest.

In this run, scrimpeh manipulates enemy movement and utilizes damage boosts and invincibility frames to beat the game in under 9 minutes.

For another MSX game with very similar gameplay, see the run of Vampire Killer done by the same author.

As you can see here, the original Castlevania wasn't only on the NES, but also on the MSX computer. Author scrimpeh did on the MSX Castlevania what Phil Côté & Morrison did on the NES Castlevania.

This version is different in some important ways. Some new gameplay elements include the requirement to collect a white key in each stage in order to advance, the removal of the chain whip after each boss battle, and the ability to buy subweapons from sitting bystanders in white or red clothes.

This is an improvement of 1:14.89 over the previous run thanks to a few new time-saving tricks.


Note: To play the OMR file, you'll need to have openMSX 0.8.2 / 0.9.0 with the Panasonic FS-A1WSX BIOS installed.

- Forgoes time-saving damage
- Genre: Fighting
Yie Ar Kung-Fu II: The Emperor Yie-Gah is the sequel to the famous Yie Ar Kung-Fu. Both games were developed by Konami for the MSX. While the first one was a fighting game, this one is a beat 'em up. You play as Lee Young, a martial arts master and the son of the first game's hero, who must take out self-proclaimed Emperor Yie-Gah and his gang and save China from their evil influence.

The author, Quibus, avoids unnecessary battles with gang members and beats down every boss to defeat Yie-Gah without taking a scratch.
