Bootlegged Games LOL

Post by NRGuk » Fri May 06, 2011 4:34 pm

I was doing a little bit of digging on bootlegged games since I saw the report on Pokemon (Black I think it was!) Anyway this is what I found, few little gems here http://norwichretrogaming.co.uk/news/bo ... nes-games/ would like to carry one finding out some gems of this type of gaming if anyone has any blockbuster ones that need to be looked at. Seen a few FFVII ones too which made me LOL!

Isn't the Star Wars one real? That's the Namco Famicom version, no?

It is indeed real, its just very bad. The AVGN reviewed it. When you kill Darth Vader, he randomley turns into a scorpian!?
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

Final Fight 3, Sonic, Super Mario World, Mortal Kombat and of course the infamous Master Fighter. You have to play these, FF3 is actually OK, the rest are good for a giggle at least.

You can't help but think James Cameron missed a few tricks with Titanic. Seeing Leo fighting off a carpet and having axes whizzing past his head would have improved that film immeasurably.

And of course him fighting jellyfish to get back to the boat and survive at the end.

Yep, great games, I wonder if the ROMS for these are flying around, especially for the Mario games etc, would be good to put together a further piece on them because they are quite interesting. The titanic one has been done, but Tomb Raider etc too. Worth a look methinks.

Some of these games actually look really good.... seems to be pushing the limits of the NES too!

All of these are available as ROMs, I don't have a NES/Famicom.

What I think too. Also, it's strange how some of these insane bootlegs look a lot better than some real games on the systems in question. Especially that NES SF Zero 2!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

^ +1 on SF Zero 2, now THAT looks worth playing. As does VR Fighter vs Taken 2 (Mega Drive), for entirely different reasons though, believe me!

Don't forget Kart Fighter either - stupidest idea ever, badly executed. I pissed myself laughing! :lol:
