BurgerTime, MSX

The official conversion of BurgerTime for the MSX was created by Dempa Shimbunsha and Data East in 1986.

It looks a bit like a Spectrum game, which is ironic because there is no official BurgerTime on the ZX Spectrum (there are plenty of bad clones though).

Gameplay-wise, MSX BurgerTime is relatively close to the original – ie. very challenging – and general BurgerTime play strategies work in this also. The controls are thankfully not very ‘sticky’ and movement between platforms and ladders is seamless.

The recognisable, warbling BurgerTime tune is comforting too. Overall this is an excellent conversion.

BurgerTime versions on The King of Grabs:
Arcade, Apple II, Intellivision, PC, Atari 2600, ColecoVision,
