Ablaze promo added to Downloads

About 13 years ago, an MSX developer named Cybernetic released a playable promo of a game that was to be a Nemesis styled shooter for MSX2, one that could scroll in multiple directions. Unfortunately, the game was never finished. Recently, MRC admin DemonSeed excavated a huge load of his old disks and found this quite impressive piece of work. You can even ask a friend to help you shooting enemies to kingdom come, since this promo supports dual player mode, a feature known from Konami's classic Salamander.

Our downloads section currently contains over a thousand entries. If you have free material which you wish to share with numerous MSX fans around the world, send it to downloads@msx.org and we will consider your submission. Each addition to the downloads section will be announced with a newspost, and if your entry does well enough: the download will be mentioned in the monthly downloads top 10.

I remember it was demo'd on the MSX fair in Zandvoort in 1997 by the MCD (MSX Club Drechtsteden) folks... Was very promising back then, because no one had seen a non-commercial all-direction smooth scrolling shooter back then.

great game
it was even more advanced than totalparody
but if you always know in which direction you are going to scroll this helps a lot
