The sci-fi adventure game S.O.L.O. is now available as MSX cartridge at the Côté Gamers shop. The game comes fully boxed with 15 free postcards with cult MSX games. A nice touch for such a great game.

Ranking 2nd in the MSXdev21 game list, Roolandoo's platformer S.O.L.O. gets its deserved physical format happening. The game is a true piece of craftsmanship with a high level of game play, not the easiest one either. This space adventure is leading droids through planet Tartessos. While the MSXdev version is available in both English and Spanish, the physical release only has English in-game text due to memory limitations; the supplied manual has instructions in English, Spanish and French though.

The droids termed as S.O.L.O. (slot one, level one) are effected by the mining of a valuable substance called Ether, which causes their circuitry and positron minds to deteriorate. The group of robots were abandoned by humans some hundred years ago and left to their fate under an artificial intelligence called I.S.A.C. As a huge asteroid is on its way on a collision with the planet, it’s time to leave for the droids. Maneuver your way through the puzzles and save yourself.

The shop is offering the S.O.L.O MSX game cartridge for €30 and comes in a big box format, including some unique MSX postcards. And, while you're there, pick up a copy of Roolandoo's previous published game, The Relic, as well.

available in both English and Spanish language.

When I contacted Côté Gamers, they told me that the manual is in English, Spanish and French, but the game is in English and there are no other versions.
*The MSXdev21 website has both English and Spanish versions of the game.

That's right. The manual is in 3 languages ​​but the cartridge game is only in English (you know, memory issues).
But I don't think it is a problem, there is little text during the game.

Thank you very much for reply!
The reason I posted this topic is because although the text says "available in both languages", the MSXdev21 version came in two separate ROMs, so I asked the store if I could select the language when I bought it, and got the aforementioned answer.(I asked for the English version.)
Yes, we would all be happy if one cartridge could support both languages as described in the text, but I understand that it is difficult to do so due to memory is tight.
Still, it doesn't change the fact that this game is great!
