Attack of the Petscii Robots - An Action Adventure game originally by The 8bit Guy arrives on the MSX by Robosoft!

Another great news story for you all, as if you followed our previous write up in regards to Attack of the Petscii Robots; A game which was originally developed by David Murray, with a later port for the Commodore Amiga by Vesa Halttunen. Then you'll be pleased to learn that as of today, you can now try out the MSX version! A new version of the game by Robosoft, which was released some time back for the Atari XL/XE, Atari, Apple II, C64, C128, Plus/4, and VIC 20 by David Murray aka The 8bit Guy.

Sometime in the future, robots attempt to take over human settlements on various planets. Your goal is to infiltrate these settlements and destroy all of the robots. To do this, you’ll need to locate weapons and other tools. The game features multiple rooms, enemies to destroy, items to find and as the developer says " This version is true to the original, but is enhanced with updated graphics and sound using the V9990 display cart. " So yes certainly another game worthy of a playthrough on the MSX!

  1. Looks fabulous... Especially the title screen. Always surprised about how good the MSX2 gfx can look like.

  2. Wait, so this requires an expensive display cartridge as well? Or it can just make use of it if you have one?

  3. Graphically it looks identical to the Amiga/SNES/Mega Drive (my favourite) version. But where is the fantastic music in the video?
