Not on a technical side, of course, and especially on the MSX 1. MSX2 has hardware scrolling support, but only vertically. Anyway, Salamander is very intense, particularly if played in two player mode with a friend. It has some very good BGM since the cartridge had a SCC chip (5 more audio channels for a total of 8), and the weapon system is awesome. Honestly, don't be repulsed by it's jerky side and outdated look by today or even Amiga standart, just try it with a friend, I think you will be quite surprised if you give it a try.
