 MSXdev23 #07 Martian War 

Title: Martian War
Genre: Arcade
Author(s): Fausto Pracek
Medium: ROM 16KB
Hardware requirements: MSX2


Presented to you in true MSX blue and white, this game is cast in MSX2 screen 0, mode 80, which is an uncommon screen mode to present games in. But Italian developer Fausto doesn’t do common games, and wrote one in that same mode anyway. If perhaps he used mode 40, this would easily run on a standard MSX1 computer as well. Luckily, the MSXdev23 is freestyle so Martian War gets registered and published for you to enjoy.

The game itself is a known concept, take your gun and shoot aliens out of the sky while protecting your base. In this case, your base consists of giant humanoids protected by a micro ship – as we are far into the future here, ofcourse. Incoming space aliens drop bombs in order to wipe out the human race and take over its pale blue dot. Your mission is as simple as preventing that from happening.
