Devwill Too ZX/MSX is a Arcade platformer for ZX Spectrum and MSX. This is a .tap rom file (ZX) or .rom file (MSX), so you will need a ZX Spectrum emulator and a MSX emulator, or the real hardware of each system to play this game. For ZX version I recomend using Espectaculator (paid) or Fuse (free). For MSX there is a lot of options, but you can use OpenMSX emulator or the online emulator here: https://webmsx.org/

The game is based on the Mega Drive/Sega Genesis version (here on my itch too), but it's not the same game, more like a new game based on the characters and world of the GEN version.

Game made with the awesome MPAGD from Jonathan Cauldwell https://jonathan-cauldwell.itch.io/multi-platform-arcade-game-designer

  •  At least 15 minutes of full speedrun gameplay

Thanks for the update. I have one problem. Could not get the slide, or action button to work? Sinclair joystick, real hardware.

Very strange, I tested with my 2+, real hardware, with sinclair joystic, and all working fine. Are you sure you are using the "2.0" version, not the old one?

Olher thing, You start the game without the slide ability, you have to find the item that will give you the power to use the slide

Yes, that was it! Thanks :)

Glad to hear that, have fun.

ZX Spectrum version of the game is very cool! Made my evening! Thank you!

Thanks, I'm glad you liked.

Excellent work, just as we've come to expect from you! The 2.0 ZX version is quite a usability improvement and more polished too. Thank you

Thanks. Yes, the intention with the 2.0 was to fix some usability issues, like you've said.  Thanks.

Devwill To ZX 2.0 version:

I already said it before when you posted Bruxólico vídeo, but man, you indeed are fast! Thanks again for the showcase.

Você utilizou qual ferramenta para fazer essa nova retrô pérola?

Olá, eu desenvolvi o jogo em MPAGD

Is there a demo file for ZX Spectrum ?

No, there is no demo version.

Great game and so cute!

I'm glad you liked. Awesome gameplay, thanks for sharing =)

How do I play this - with an emulator?  I can never figure out how to configure PC keyboards to play with them...

Yes,  you need an ZX Spectrum Emulator.  Let me give you a sugestion: donwload FUSE http://fuse-emulator.sourceforge.net/

Read Fuse readme file to know how to configure it (Tip: after open it use F9 on the keyboard you can chose the ZX model to emulate, choose  128k model to have in game music).

For using USB controles I recommend using a program like JoytoKey: https://joytokey.net/en/download

You can map imputs form the keyboard to your Joypad imputs. This is the easy way to do it, i use Joytokey in a lot of situations like Old PC games or emulators for old systems that do not have joypad or have complicated joypad suport.

I hope to have helped you, have fun.

Up on Indie Retro News :D

=) Thanks for spreading the word, I'm very happy with people reception of my little ZX game.
