Any ideas for SG-1000, MSX, or Sord M5 games for ColecoVision?

Dude, I've been thinking the same thing, maybe OPG (Opcode Games), TP (Team Pixelboy), or CVG (CollectorVision) can do that, please make this happen, I've been wanting this to happen. Even Sega-Galaga, Zoom 909 or Zaxxon would be really good.

The SG-1000 version of Zaxxon has been released for the Colecovision as Zaxxon II, but the others, like Bomb Jack and Galaga haven't been SG-1000 ported as far as I know.

I'm trying to find this port of Zaxxon, but it seems like I can't find it.

I was also able to find some of Pixelboy's ongoing projects. And I can't wait. Also, I know that Arkanoid for the Coleco has been released, but did anybody try to port the MSX version of the game for Coleco?

The Arkanoid release for the Coleco by Collectorvision is a port of the MSX version, but you need the Super Game Module to play it. Was the MSX version good?

The MSX version, I say, it is good and even has the music and sound effects to resemble the arcade version.

Ask the coder

He will agree certainly

I asked Juan the coder and unfortunately he isn't interested in doing any ports of his games.  There is a port of Night Knight in the works for the ZX Spectrum Next but that's being done by another coder.  So, Night Knight for the ColecoVision would also have to be done by someone else.

Oh, maybe somebody can, like Pixelboy, he can do a lot of MSX ports.

I don't believe Luc is taking on any more projects.

Would love to see an SG-1000 PORT of hero and bomb jack. Both have great colors/sprites/gameplay and of course as with most SG games fantastic music and sounds

i think the existing colecovision of Bomb Jack  is way better than the SG1000 version.

Okay then, since it's on the SGM.

 

Bomb Jack on Colecovision do NOT require the SGM.

I even put the demo on MSX.

I played both of them, I think the sg1000 bomb jack has it beat. Like most SG games the music and sounds are way better. Plus the sprites are more defined with better use of colors. The coleco version has no sound effect or music when you clear a screen it just goes silent and then onto the next screen, found that kinda week. No sense of accomplishment. The sg even has a sound for when bomb jack loses a life plus he flips over on his head. That's a nice little touch and attention to detail. Plus it's not as floaty, but that's just my opinion

i agree with you concerning sounds  ( however  i prefer the theme  (Magnetic Field from Jean Michel harre) in colecovision version which not the one from arcade but same as C64 version. )

 

But in term of gameplay i don't share your opinion.  The colecovision is really closer to the arcade version then the SG 1000 one.

Okay, I do agree, also, the theme is used in a lot of ports in Bomb Jack, but I don't know why it was never released for the arcade and the ones that used arcade music.

Bomb Jack and Hero have been done already on the CV, so I see absolutely no reason to revisit them especially since the other versions mentioned can easily be played thru emulation.

 

There’s only one game worth a new release and sounds like that one will be coming soon. Aside from that, enhanced versions with all new levels would be the only thing that peeks my interest (ie: Gorf and Venture Super Games being worked on by CollectorVision) akin to what Coleco did with their Zaxxon and DK Jr. Super Games.
