Super New Year Cart 15-in-1, part 4.

Hello everyone! I finally got my CRT TV setup partially reinstalled, enough to do light gun stuff, which means I can finally finish writing about Super New Year Cart 15 in 1.

Yes, finally. This is (probably) the last post about this cartridge.

Anyway, the first thing I’m covering is the incomplete lightgun support in The Duck / The Egg.

If you use the lightgun on the title screen, it will start up the game. But the palettes are all messed up.

…yup. Pretty buggy. You can also shoot the ducks. It is very incomplete though, and is apparently broken. You can shoot ducks when you are pointing the gun away from the TV. And you can also miss the ducks when the gun is pointed straight at them.

So yeah. Very buggy.

Next off, there is a debug mode in Titenic. You just press buttons on the second controller and weird stuff happens.

For example, you can use the player 2 D-pad to control the water level. And sometimes you can press A twice in a row to create a second playable character. You control both of them at the same time.

Also, you can skip straight to the credits, and you can crash the game. I haven’t tried out the debug stuff very much, but it is very glitchy.

So, yeah. Now I’m going to write about the next games on this multicart I haven’t written about yet.

Next up are Beachhead, Jungle War, and Adventure. But these are all just Pink Jelly hacked to start on a different level later in the game.

And then there’s a game I haven’t written about yet: Rings.

Wait a second… “rings” isn’t listed anywhere on this menu.

No, it’s not. But “Gorge” is just an alternate name for Rings. In fact, there’s some uncompiled source code in this multicart that refers to “Gorge” as “Rings.” Anyway, what is Rings? Let’s find out.

Hm! A character select. you can pick either Frodo, Legolas, Gandalf and Arwen as your playable character. This game is based off of The Lord of the Rings.

Let’s pick Frodo, because he’s the main character. Let’s see…

…this is exactly the same as Pink Jelly. Yup. It’s just Pink Jelly plus a character select.

Actually, Pink Jelly is Rings without a character select. People have done some hacking in Pink Jelly and found some remains of the level select.

Well, that basically covers it for Super New Year Cart 15 in 1.

Oh wait, there’s Peace Sea, The Bridge, and Green Evil to write about. They’re not much, they’re just Rings hacked to start on different levels.

By the way, the heights of the characters are completely inaccurate to both the book and the movie versions of The Lord of the Rings. In this game, all the characters are 103 cm tall.

OK, that will conclude this blog post, so bye guys I guess.
