Considering its age (and size: 49KB!) the Famicom TwinBee was a massive achievement for its time.
A truly memorable game - full marks for keeping the 2P mode intact!

STATUS
The MSX musters a choppy but decent conversion of the Konami classic.
A very big title in its day, and understandably so - this is one of the many reasons why Konami were kings of the MSX.

Currently out of stock, and very hard to find in good condition!
