And after some extra work, let me introduce Binary Twist 1.1

Despite the fact that Binary Twist was born as a quick project thought for its author to recover the contact with the hacks after a break, the truth is that it felt like it was missing something…
For that reason it has been decided to invest some additional work to give it a unique personality that differs from the original, blending the inspiration from the MSX version with a few nice touches to finally bring something special to Binary Land that (maybe) deserves to be played.
Also, taking note of the complaint of a member of the community, the baby penguin Power-Up is replaced by… a human baby? In this case by Guron (Gurin’s little brother).
Judge for your own and enjoy it!
So here it is Binary Land... with a twist

Actually, there’s not much to explain: This is Binary Land…. with a twist XD.
This classic from Hudson Soft. was very popular in Japan and published on a bunch of systems: First on computers of the time (NEC PC-8801, FM-7) and then, in intervals of one year, on MSX and Famicom (which today are the most lovely remembered). Their roms have been preserved, so it is easy to have the chance to play them via emulation. The funny part (and what gave origin to this Hack) is that although being very similar, they show a notable difference: In the Nintendo’s console version, the main character couple are penguins and in the MSX one… kids. So, with this in mind and just for fun (the project didn’t take more than a couple of days to be finished), Binary Twist has born.
● The main protagonist penguins have been replaced by a couple of kids, using directly the MSX sprites as a base.
● The title screen has been modified to fit with the theme of the Hack.
● Some minor improvements in the items
