A fine & free MSX emulator. In Java.

MSX was a rather failed attempt at imposing the ultimate home-computer standard. It was led by Sony and Microsoft, and more info is to be gathered from the most unlikely of sources: Wikipedia. As for a nice emulated taste of what the MSX games felt like, you could try the very free Java Msx Emulator.

Available games include Raid on Bungeling Bay, Zaxxon, 1942, Nemesis, Hyper Rally, Goonies, Kung Fu Master and Time Pilot.
