Caverns of Titan

16Kb ROM game developed for MSXdev'05.

The Game

Guess what?. It's a Manic Miner clone with a MSXish twist. There're a lot of good platform games for MSX; but none really good in the style of MM. Even the original MM is poorly ported, too much close graphically to the spectrum version. So I decided that being a favorite of mine, the standard deserves a good puzzle/platform game.
