A simple technical demo of the first level of Prince of Persis for the ColecoVision, MSX and SG-1000 consoles.

These consoles never got a port of POP. This is a prototype release to keep you updated with progress on the project. The game plays smoothly but is missing a few feature. Guard rendering added to prove it would work on this hardware. No sword fights yet.

First 2 levels only.

Version 1.02

  • Fixed to run on MSX2 (with MSX1 graphics)

Version 1.01

  • Implemented most player movements
  • Added guards (but they don't work)
  • Completed level 1
  • Added level 2

Good for SG - 1000. Continue doing your best ! 

Using SofaRun to start the demo from a GR8NET on a Sony MSX2+, it just reboots the machine after loading the ROM. What settings do I need?

Try it now. It woks on OpenMSX now, but I don't have real hardware.

It still crashes my Japanese Sony HBF1XV MSX2+, but it does work on my Dutch Philips VG8235 MSX2.


This is already amazing. Great work so far.

So great!! 😊

Very cool. Would you consider porting it to NABU PC? It has the same CPU, video and audio chip as MSX.

Probably not POP, since it's about 200K and requires a bank switching cartridge. But I can look at the possibility of supporting NABU with some of my other games.

Cool game porting! Nice job mate! Could you please make a porting for sg-1000/sc-3000?

SG-1000/SC-3000 is available in the download. This is my favourite platform as well.

If not done, pls enter in our FB group "SC-3000 Survivors", I'm an admin of it.

Cool project! To play on WebMSX,  It seems to need Set ROM format as "ASCII16"

Wow, if this is only a tech demo, then it looks very good and it’s a perfect base to make the whole game. I also was impressed when they made PoP for C64 or Atari 8-bit, so now for MSX it’s also very exciting! And colecoVision too? Wow! Good work!

So interesting ! When will you finish it ?

POP is a big project. I'm working in it now, but it will take a few months to complete.

Awesome demo remake !

Nice demo!
