The first post is related to the English Translated version of Megadrive "Madou Monogatari I" (Sorcery Saga I)... now this "dungeon crawler" RPG by Compile is fully playable in english language! ;)
This is the link to the ips translation file: https://www.romhacking.net/translations/5388/

This game was added by barbudreadmon... RetroSouls' Gluf, a very funny action-puzzle game for Megadrive! ;)
Here the link to the official website: https://retrosouls.itch.io/gluf-16bit

This time is the turn of MSX... 5 new homebrew games (MSXdev Contest) added to the roster! ;)
Draconic Throne (horizonal shoot'em up)
Linez (puzzle game)
Quartet (puzzle game)
Xracing (racing, top-view)
XSplelunker (platform game)

PS: I added the initials "HB" to all MSX homebrew games, now  identify them in the FBN "Select Game" menu should be easier.

XRacing is quite an amazing feat - it manages to do smooth scrolling on a computer+vdp that is incapable of doing smooth scrolling :)  It's also a fun little racing game with a nice soundtrack.

Thanks for taking the time to add these, Gab75!

best regards,

You're welcome! :)
Among other things, Xracing was the winner of MSXDev'18 Contest... probably it's the best (or one of the best) top-view racing game on MSX 1 !

PS: this game brings to my mind the "legendary" Gremlin's Super Cars (I played a lot with the Amiga version) ! ;)

Looking forward to trying Xracing out. I am a big fan of top down car games :)

I'm sure that you will not be disappointed... as dink wrote, this game has a very smooth scrolling (a rare feature for the MSX 1 games) ;)

5 new NES/Famicom homebrew games added by dink... :)
- Che-man (a funny and "strange" platform game)
- EeeAaaOoo (not a real game, but a peculiar "tech-demo")
- FallingTiles (a Zapper light-gun game)
- Machine Caves (a Thrust style game)
- Wolfling (a very nice platform game, IMHO the best of the "lot")

After playing MSX Yazzie, I love this version!  Much better than the Megadrive - I think the 8 bit nature suits this game better. (My opinion, of course!)

IIRC the game was born on ZX Spectrum (the MSX version should be the same), the Megadrive version, with the scrolling background and the bigger sprites, is a "reinterpretation" ... when you say "worse is better" ! :P :)
