A Life M36 Planet - A complete English translation for an MSX Action Adventure

Usually I'm here talking about English translations for NES games or SNES games, but this one isn't either of those but a full English translation of an Action Adventure game called ' A Life M36 Planet ' on the MSX. Now I'm going to be truthful and say I've never heard of this game before which is a shame as it looks pretty decent, especially as described by Msx.org. According to them "this game was released for the MSX system in 1987 where the player has to find out if the planet M36 is suitable for a human colony. While the game was obviously inspired by Metroid, it does deepen its formula with a lot more RPG elements added on top of it "

I must say after watching the trailer above, I can certainly see the Metroid influences. It has the charm of that game while remaining fresh with lots of interesting areas such as caverns, people to converse with, and strange alien scum to blast away with your powerful laser. Thankfully if it wasn't for Hubz, Wyrdwad, MP83 and Manual Pazos we probably wouldn't be talking about or experiencing this game today in its 30th Anniversary!
