About this game

Do you want to know how the good old days felt, when computers had 8-bit processors and 64kB only?

One of the lesser known computers of the 1980'ies was the Sharp MZ-700 with it's SharpSCII graphics, Z80 processor, just 8 (Eight!!!) colors and not much sound.

It came with some prepacked games, one of them was MAN-HUNT which I really liked... and still do. So I took the chance to see how complicated it is today to implement such a game. Yes, writing a primitive screen driver was nice and a bit of work, but the game itself was not much trouble. So if you like this game and I see it is downloaded, chances are great that some other Sharp MZ-700 works of art will follow.

Why? Just found no emulator for Android running smooth and being in a RETRO-mood myself... It's been over 30 years I coded on this machine in the first place, so the sentimental journey was very welcome.

You think the game is hard, real hard to win? Well, back then we didn't have much tutorials and entry levels like today...


NEW December 2023: Added 2 new games, support for colorblind players



Included games:

QUASIMODO - The hunchback wants to see his lady

THE DEEEP - Reach the surface from your stranded submarine

RUNNER - Run, jump and dodge obstacles

LE MANS - Car race

BILLY BUBBLES - Catch the monsters with your bubbles and pop them...

FLAPPEY - Flap your wings and steer safely through the obstacles.

ZOMBIE ATTACK - How many nights can you survive the attacking zombie hordes?

VETRIS - Variants of the classic with 5 different modes of play with critters, explosions or under extreme time pressure.

LUMBER BOB - How much wood can you chop? Interpretation of a late indie hit like it could have looked on the MZ-700.

SPACE SHOOTER - A version of a shooter game with auto fire and different enemies and attack patterns. New interpretation and combination of several classic arcade shooters on the MZ-700.

KNIGHTS CASTLE - Rescue the maid from the castle. Remake of the MZ-700 classic.

RESCUE PLANE - Help the stranded pilots to get to safe ground. Remake of the MZ-700 classic.

SKIING - The one game I always missed on the MZ-700. Enjoy cruising through the snow and avoid obstacles.

BOMBER PLANE - Clean up the ground to land your plane safely.

MAN-HUNT - Are you able to clear the maze completely? Even when there are more ghost coming? Remake of the MZ-700 classic.

PAINFUL MAN - is very similar to the old game: Collect all energy to get to the next labyrinth without crashing into enemies and before your energy runs out. Remake of the MZ-700 classic.

LAND ESCAPE - comes with some changes to the original game I always wanted 30 years ago. E.g. a nicer fuel and heat display ... Try to run and jetpack over and around the obstacles and get as far as you can. Remake of the MZ-700 classic.

MOVING SEARCHER - makes you collect all fuel cells to clear the level. Easy in the first levels, harder in higher levels. Oh, I couldn't resist to add a new element not in the original game: Get to level 4 and up to avoid the fog of pain. Remake of the MZ-700 classic.

Just a regular retro collection of games. Though I would give 5 stars for the fact, you programmed the app with no engine, just coding 😳 The games are kind of addicting too! It seems like they are all airplane-friendly and I can safely play them during flight 😊 Definitely would recommend for offline play and for weak phones: This is masterpiece

Thank you so much! Yes, I coded everything (including the minimal 'not-quite-a-full-engine' to simulate the 1982 screen and graphics) by hand. This keeps the download size small. And as I don't like any kind of ads or see a benefit in other internet connections, the app is coming with complete offline capabilities 😀
