When's the MTX going to get ZAXXON & Donkey Kong

Post by lezanderson » 07 Oct 2014 16:13

Just dropping some big hints on what games i think should be convert from Colecovision to the MTX !

We all remember great Games like ZAXXON, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Junior... The Colecovision versions of these are pretty good !!

The questions arises... When is the MTX going to get these excellent games ? Hint Hint !!!

Good call Lez,

Zaxxon was my submission when Mr Converter asked for suggestions, no progress yet though :-(
[ equally unsubtle hint :-) ]

CV donkeykong is now very good :(

Zaxxon way better,

I didn look at those games, I do remember i diassembled DK a bit, but not into a useable source yet.

Digdug and Galaxian (also Galaga) could be possible, but dont we have enought space games?

I suffer from the same problem like many other Retro guys do:

1. Family
2. Work
3. Family with two kids.
4. Leave around 7.15 in the morning, back around 19.00

2012 was a great year for MTX releases, 2013 was not that great, and 2014 only released SASA for the MEMOFEST ;)

But getting better and better, as you might notice, SASA was done pretty quick.

But for sure the Memotech deserves "new" games, ether new programmed games or conversions. Lucky we have a few other computers/consoles we can adapt games from. I think if the Memotech had made better agreements with more software houses, it could have more success back in the 80's.

but we can still enjoy the games now, after 30 years. But dont worry, I have no plans not to continue convert games, so for sure more games are coming, and as long as people enjoy them its worthy to convert them. For me its not so much about play the games, is also fun to disassemble game, and make the work on the MTX. But its also a great pleasure to see the game plays on the good old friend: the Memotech MTX :)

Also have to give big credit to Andy Key for making MENU, and the Debug functions in Memu, and for answering questions about assembler and Memotech.

So guys dont worry more games are coming its just a madder of T-I-M-E ;)
