Final Bout IMANOK 2000 (MSX)


(c)Imanok 2009


This story takes place in the year 2059. Since the Earth's limited resources have been wasted by the human race, new energy sources had to be found out of the planet.

After several years of investigation, a group of scientists discovered new minerals under the crust of Jupiter moons. Those minerals turned out to be a great energy source, that's why a large scale exploitation was planned from Earth. So the Power Afield Company (P.A.C.) was founded in order to create 5 automatic driller robots called Drilleroids designed to carry out all the work without need of human intervention.

The Drilleroids were sent to Jupiter and started to work successfully. Nevertheless, unexpected troubles came up: there was life under the crust of Jupiter moons... small beings which felt threatened by the presence of the Drilleroids and attacked them causing serious damage.

A space mission manned by a team of experienced astronauts was launched to repair the Drilleroids and equip them with a self-defense system to avoid future attacks. This mission was called J.E.T.P.A.C. (Jupiter Elite Troop Power Afield Company).

They completed their duty and returned to the spaceship willing to return to Earth. Sadly, they found out it had invaded Jupiter's asteroid belt, receiving several serious impacts: the main power generator and the transmission systems were damaged. The team was condemned to die, resting forever around Jupiter's orbit.

Suddenly, they came up with a desperate way to save their lives: to obtain the energy modules from the Drilleroids with the hope they could generate enough power to reactivate the spaceship... but after installing the self-defense systems and not being able to disable them by radio, there is no option but fighting the Drilleroids to snatch their energy modules.


Caution. First of all, follow the next advise not to damage your machine neither your J.E.T.P.A.C. cartridge:

- Always be sure that your MSX computer is turned OFF when inserting and/or removing the cartridge.

- Don't touch slot connections.

- Avoid extreme temperatures, humidity and impacts.

- Don't try to open the cartridge case.

To start with the game, insert the cartridge properly and turn on your MSX.

At the title screen press <SPACE>/<A BUTTON> to start playing.


Fly into the caves with the help of your jetpac, getting rid of the dangerous creatures with your mid-range laser gun, dodging through a way full of twists and turns... until you get to the Drilleroids and take the longed energy modules.

Due to the gravity inside the caves, you will have to keep on using your jetpac's propulsion system so that you don't fall down and crash against the rocks.

Under the action screen, you'll see a panel with several indicators (from left to right):

Lives: It shows your lives in stock.

Energy Bar: Your equipment depends on this energy bar. It will decrease slowly by using the jetpac and the laser gun or quickly by crashing through the rocks or by receiving enemy impacts. Once it runs out, you won't be able to use your equipment anymore and you will fall down inevitably. Anyway, you'll be able to refill it by picking up the energy pods you may find on your way.

Moon: It shows the moon where you are going through.

The Maze of Galious REMAKE

The Maze of Galious (MoG in short) was originally a Konami game for the MSX computer system. Its real name is Knightmare II: The Maze of Galious and is the sequel of another Konami game called Knightmare.

MoG is a very addictive game where you have to kill thousands of enemies, collect items in order to obtain new powers and defeat some really great demons at the end of each level. The gameplay of MoG is not the boring linear one. In MoG you are free to go everywhere you want from the beginning of the game. You have to be very careful of the order in which you visit all the rooms in the HUGE map if you want to keep your character alive. The map is structured in a main map (called the castle) and 10 submaps (called the worlds). Initially you are in the castle and you have to find the keys that open the doors to go to each of the worlds. To complete the game you have to defeat the boss at the end of each one of the 10 worlds. You are free to revisit each world as often as you want in order to see if you have missed something. To defeat all 10 demons you control two characters: Popolon and Aphrodite. Each one has special abilities, i.e. Popolon has a greater ability to jump and Aphrodite is able to dive.
