Spanish homebrew team Kralizec has delivered an awesome gift to gamers looking for a special way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Goonies release to theaters this year: a new MSX game based on the movie! The release is titled The Goonies 'R' Good Enough, named after the series' theme track sung by Cyndi Lauper.
This title isn't based on Konami's The Goonies MSX game released in 1986 or on Brain Games' PC remake of that title released in 2006. This four-year project is an original title that is meant to more closely follow the movie's plot, even offering digitized images from the film.
Kralizec is selling this fan production as a 4MB megarom cartridge that includes two versions, one for MSX and the other for MSX2 (with "special extra stuff" if you're using a MSX2+ or MSXtR). You can watch the MSX2 edition above, while a video for the MSX version is embedded after the break.
You can buy a copy of The Goonies 'R' Good Enough through MSX Cartridge Shop. The game comes boxed and shrinkwrapped, and includes a 16-page color manual. Expect to pay €35, or $45, before shipping/handling.
