That repeating music though... it drives me nuts.

Don't forget about Eggerland, a really good puzzle game. It's kind of a shame the Amiga never got a port.

Gives me an idea... maybe the arcade Pengo should also get ported. If I don't get too bogged down with Black Tiger, that is

I disassembled Knightmare back into Z80 source just to see how hard it would be. Turns out it wasn't too tough. Then Toni Galvez said he'd revamp the gfx in 32 colours. So I guess that is coming next Going to be a long while yet though.

After that I'll start looking at MG2, but it's going to be a huge task. Knightmare is a 32kb ROM, MG2 is 512KB!!

In terms of Nemesis / Gradius, everyone knows Nemesis 2 on the MSX is the best version of any of the installments.. period. But don't expect that to be ported.

But ever heard from Snatcher SD? (check the youtube), is a really awesome cyberpunk game in the day. In the MSX days, it even came with its own SCC/Megaram cartridge. If you seen/played in ever you will see it will probably in you top MSX games as well

But very good to hear about Metal Gear 2.

Designed by the legendary Hideo Kojima, it spawned a huge franchise in stealth gameplay and is considered one of the top games from the platform. While there are ports for the NES, Spectrum and C64 they were missing a lot of the key details from the original game. An Amiga version was once advertised in a magazine but sadly was consigned to myth and legend. That is until now.

Based on a full and commented disassembly by Manuel Pazos of the original MSX2 game cartridge, this Amiga port has been built to ensure as near a perfect conversion as possible. Gameplay elements remain intact while additional features have been layered on-top to ensure the fullest experience possible of Metal Gear on the Amiga.
  • Code ported from Z80 to 68000 assembly by Hoffman
  • Gameplay adjusted to work at full 50hz/60hz
  • No slow-downs or sprite flicker
  • Multiple game modes
    • English Remix Fan Translation
    • Original European Version
    • Original Japanese Version
    • New Spanish Translation by Akira
  • Enhanced Amiga Soundtrack and SFX by Hoffman
  • Optional emulated MSX / PSG Music and SFX
  • Full support for CD32 gamepad for keyboard-less gameplay
  • Additional character graphics by Toni Galvez
  • All new ending / credits section
  • For any Amiga with 512kb Chip Ram + 512k Other Ram
  • Bootable disk image for low spec Amigas
  • WHDLoad installer by Psygore

I just want to say that I love this, mate. This is great on psvita and retroarch. Hats off.
