Stop The Express, MSX

Hudson Soft converted and published Stop The Express (aka Bousou Tokkyuu SOS) itself in Japan in 1984.

The MSX version of this great game runs significantly faster than the ZX Spectrum original (or the Commodore 64 version for that matter), which makes it much more challenging than previously. Some might argue that it ruins the game…

Other than the speed, the graphics and gameplay are the same as before. Which is no bad thing. Even the funny “congraturation” message at the end is the same as the original.
