Giovanni Nunes, aka plainspooky, has created a new game for the MSX. It is a MSX version of the game Flood-it. In this game you have to "paint" a 16×16 blocks wall in one color.

Painting starts from upper left side, replacing all connected colors from this first block. By the way you have only 28 moves to complete this task. Use the following keys to choose a color:

  • B for Blue
  • C for Cyan
  • G for Green
  • M for Magenta
  • R for Red
  • Y for Yellow

This is a simple game with simple logic, written in SDCC and using some assembly for hardware access.

Nice one!
I even got my wife to play it as she played those kinds of games quite a bit a few years ago.
My first attempt I won with several moves left, but the second time I completed the field in 28/28 moves. I was a bit surprised that the game counts this as a loss?

(Spelling nitpick: it's "Lose" in this case. ;) "Loose" is the opposite of "tight".)

I had the same experience as @FiXato, but I thought I was just not paying attention. I managed to reproduce it and, indeed, when you are at 27/28, you lose in the next round no matter what. It seems to be a bug. Smile Nevertheless, great game, it's a lot of fun as it is.

Am I mistaken or is it enhanced for MSX2?
