Foryster - A simple MSX1 / SG-1000 game as a variation on Montezuma's Revenge


In the early 80's many of us had the pleasure of playing the adventure platformer 'Montezuma's Revenge' on the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Apple II, ColecoVision, Commodore 64, IBM PC, Sega Master System and even the ZX Spectrum (as Panama Joe). It combined treasure hunting, lots of rooms, puzzle solving and deadly traps and enemies that needed to be avoided almost as if you were playing as Indiana Jones himself. But now once again we look towards a new game in that style, as siudym has released his own variation of Montezuma's Revenge for the MSX/SG-1000 called 'Foryster'.


Now I haven't had the chance to play this latest release for the MSX1 and SG-1000 as it's very late here in the UK, but according to the creator not only does the game have simple mechanics, but it's very challenging, there's nasty spikes that will do you harm, and it also features several text levels as seen above. Thankfully if you don't have any of those systems, you could play the game online via the homebrew file hunter link below.
