2. The music is quite nice and makes me think about the RADX-8 music.
3. Did anyone notice the Youtube link ends with OCM?
4. Insine is really insane. I don't think anyone can finish it Smile

Am I right thinking the background is repetitive because every character needs to be present eight times?

I just found out this wasn't his first one:

Combining a few levels like this would create a very nice game. I also love the music BTW...

The horizontal directional scroll is cool, it really shows that you can get quite a nice effect even with the limits of the colour spill just by making the background cleverly with the restrictions in mind.

And the bidirectional scrolling one is especially neat because you can not just have 8 pattern tables in (MSX2) memory, rather the CPU needs to constantly update the patterns.

(For a unidirectional scroll in principle the MSX2 can just fit 8 versions of the pattern table in memory.)
