The game

In The 4 Masters of Melody, you play Mirkell, a talented bard who is lost in the legendary and scary Melody Forest. Only by luck, four entities known as the 4 Masters of Melody find you. The vast, powerful ghost-looking guardians decide to help Mirkell to leave the forest, but with one condition: he has to repeat the twenty melodies that they will play, proving that you are a brave and brilliant minstrel. If Mirkell fails, however, the masters will discharge all their fury on him!

The 4 Masters of Melody is a game for the MSX1 that works similarly to the game Simon, but in a fantasy setting. The objective is to match the sequence of musical notes played by the four masters. If you get a single note wrong, it is game over! 

Developed by Mario Cavalcanti, the Clube MSX editor, the game runs in any MSX with at least 16Kb of RAM.
