Wing Warriors - MSX Homebrew

I'm not sure exactly when this came out, but it's a new hombrew title for that often overlooked Japanese 8-bit computer the MSX. Although it suffers from that familiar jerky scrolling common to so many MSX games it still looks like a lot of fun and you can grab it here

Sega Master System Homebrew 2016

The results are in for the 2016 SMS Power! Sega Master System coding competition and here's a quick video of the top two games in this years entries. 

Bara Buru is a nice 80's-esque platformer in the style of Bubble Bobble. It's apparently a fully finished game and from what I've played so far seems pretty good. 

Cimmerian is essentially a remake of the classic 8-bit fighter Barbarian. It's still incomplete, but looks promising. Hopefully a complete version will soon follow.
