Thanks to Julio Marchi for this space in MSX All
 

  This game is based on the famous game "Guess who?", where two players pick up a card from a deck containing many people with different characteristics, and the goal is to find out the person the opponent has picked up by asking some information about his/her person, before he/she finds out the person you picked up.
  This new version brings new graphics and also many improvements from the previous version.

 1. How to play
  You can play it using a MSX emulator or copy the files to a disquette an run it on a real MSX. Thus, it is necessary to have MSX-DOS 1 to launch the program.
  On DOS prompt, type "cara2" and press "Enter".

  After the presentation, a menu appears offering three options:
  - Instructions: open the game instructions.
  - Play: start the game.
  - DOS: return to MSX-DOS.

  After starting the game, let's see the keys used:
  - Arrows: move cursor.
  - Enter: choose person on the beginning or name risk, select an option from the menu and exit mark mode.
  - Space: Mark or undo mark on a person.

  The first thing to do is to select a person. Select a person moving the cursor over the characters. Select one by pressing "Enter".
  As you move the cursor over a person, his/her characteristics are marked with red right below the menu.
  After choosing your person, the MSX picks up a secret person and the game starts. Close dialogs using "Enter".

  MSX Asks:

  In this version, whenever MSX asks you about your person, the answer is performed automatically.

  You Ask:

  In your turn, a yellow cursor appears on the question menu located at the bottom of the screen. The menu is shown in the next figure.


 

  Available characteristics on the menu:

Option Name Group Option Name Group

  Special options:

Option Name Description
27 Risk Take risk and say the secret person's name.
28 Mark mode Enter the mark mode.

  Use the arrows to navigate the menu and press "Enter" to confirm an option.
  After asking MSX, he answers "Yes" or "No". After closing the dialog, the mark mode starts in order to you mark the persons that disagree that answer. For example, if you ask "The person is a man?" and the MSX says "No" means that his person is a woman. In that case, mark all the men to mark them.
  By the time you are sure about the MSX's secret person, use the menu option 27. The mark mode is activated in order to allow you to choose a person to risk. Press "Enter" to confirm your choice.
  In this game, you may risk a name without ending the game in case of failure.
