Zemina was a South Korean software maker brand of Saehan Company[1] that primarily made games for the Daewoo Zemmix, but because it was an MSX computer made to look and be played like a game console, they work on other MSX computers as well. Although many of them were copies of other games, like Streetmaster (originally by Sega), they also made Flash Point.[2]

Because South Korea had bad relations with Japan due to the experiences of occupation, Japanese companies were not allowed to operate in Korea. Due to this, plagiarizing Japanese products was not the main focus for the Korean authorities, and for this reason, many of Zemina's games are clones of Japanese games.[3]

They have also made a Super Mario World-clone game for the Sega Master System called Super Boy 4 in 1992.[4]
