Having a quiet day after wrestling with BlueMSX and BlueMSX-Wii and got to thinking about games developers that you never here of these days and I thought of Mr. Micro. So a quick google revealed this thread. (http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27078)

Some of the later comments are very interesting.

For those who are interested Mr Micro developed the following for the MSX (and probably more)
Crazy Golf
Cubit
Elite
Humphrey
Mayhem
Punchie
Zakil Wood

Didn't they also make stuff for other 8bit systems too? I remember the name.

AFAIK they made games for all 8-bit systems. Certainly C64, Vic-20, Spectrum, CPC also 4 Amiga games and some ST games but there's no definitive list. Moby Games has some but I'm fairly sure it's not complete.

I just found it funny about the guy who got 300 at age 14 for a few basic games he knocked up over a few weeks and complaining. If I'd had 300 at age 14 I would've gone out and bought myself a brand new Amiga (1986) although I might've needed to have saved up a bit of extra cash as well. In stead I was stuck with my MSX and then later a 2nd hand Breadbox (both of which I'd gotten rid of and have since replaced).
