Supervision 52-in-1

Have you heard of Action 52?

Yeah?

Well that’s NOT what I’m writing about.

What I’m writing about is this:

Screen Shot 2017-02-12 at 5.22.47 PM.png

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-5-24-40-pm

It looks like a generic multicart. And pretty much, yeah, it is.

It has something to do with Action 52 though. That’s why I got it.

But before I say what it has to do with Action 52, I’m going to give a list of games, and put some pictures.

Alright now for some pictures of some of the hacked games.

Bros. II:

Now here’s a picture of Fancy Mario:

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-5-37-05-pm

Here’s Circus Troupe (title hack of Circus Charlie):

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-5-47-52-pm

Other than that it’s unmodified. I guess they changed the name so that they wouldn’t get in trouble for trademark infringement. Which is stupid because they are distributing copyrighted material anyway. Bootleggers don’t make any sense.

And here’s that hacked Flappy title screen:

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-5-38-49-pm

This means that Supervision ripped their Flappy ROM off of a bootleg Whirlwind Manu cartridge. Lol

This is especially funny since Active Enterprises stole this multicart’s menu when they made Action 52.

Here’s this game’s menu again:

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-5-24-40-pm

And here’s a picture of a prototype version of Action 52:

action_52_prototype_menu

So Action 52 stole its menu from a multicart, which stole a game from a bootleg cartridge which was stolen off of the real game.

 

Funny Time Super Mario 160 in 1

Well here’s a new post in the first time in about 7 years. Whatever.

Anyway I’m writing about this:screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-3-34-35-pm

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-3-36-24-pm

Hm. Looks like a SMB3 game.

But it’s not.

See that sticker up at the top right? The one that says “160 in 1”? Well that’s what it really is.

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-3-38-24-pm

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-3-38-30-pm

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-3-38-35-pm

It’s playing some music in the background (probably stolen) and it has scrolling text at the top that says “Funny Time Super Mario 160 in 1”.

Who comes up with these things?

The font is stolen from Super Mario Bros. The brick texture is also stolen from Super Mario Bros. (It’s the top of the brick blocks in SMB, but they changed the palette to be grey)

Well does it have 160 games on it? I’m gonna take an educated guess here and say no.

According to the menu, it has these games (typos kept):

  1. Mario 3

Well look at that. The menu doesn’t even go up to 160. What a ripoff. Oh well.

The menu is mostly accurate, but a lot of the games don’t fulfill their promise to be what the menu said they would be.

When you start up a game, you get this:

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-4-02-37-pm

Load Game.

Please Wait.

Enjoy the Game.

OK, apparently it pretends to load for a second before playing.

The Super Mario Bros. 3 included on this multicart is the Japanese version.

Screen Shot 2017-02-12 at 4.20.08 PM.png

For Super Mario Bros. 3, the intro sequence is glitched up. Mario slides backwards across the screen, and the background is entirely black and doesn’t turn into the Super Mario Bros. 3 logo. But if you press start, it will go back to the way it’s supposed to.

Screen Shot 2017-02-12 at 4.06.10 PM.png

I played through most of the first world, and I found some other graphical glitches. The most significant is that in one of the levels, the end looked like this:

Screen Shot 2017-02-12 at 4.22.08 PM.png

It looked normal in all the other levels, so I dunno what’s going on there.

During the airship entrance cutscene, the HUD glitches up:

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-4-23-08-pm

At the top-left corner of the beginning of one level, I found this:

IMG_2011.JPG

Not sure if that was there in the original game. I don’t remember.

If an object goes off the bottom of the screen into a pit, the HUD gets glitched up in the area that the object is.

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-4-27-26-pm

There’s probably some other differences, but that’s all that I noticed.

Now to Mario 6.

It’s the Tiny Toons hack, as you’d expect:

Screen Shot 2017-02-12 at 4.32.12 PM.png

Wait, I actually haven’t written about Super Bros. 6 before.

Alright, here’s a basic summary:

It’s a hack of Tiny Toon Adventures that replaces most of your playable character’s sprites with a pink Mario. Although the cutscenes are unedited, and are still Tiny Toons.

screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-4-35-03-pm

OK, moving on. Snow Bros. is actually Snow Bros.
“Bubble” is actually Bubble Bobble 2.
“Chip to Dale” is Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Ranges
“Adventure Sea” is the Japanese version of Adventure Island but it stars on level 4.
“Super Contra 2” is the Japanese version of Super Contra, except you start out with the Konami code already entered by default.
All pretty normal stuff.

Anyway now’s “Pokémon Gold”. What is it?

IMG_3631

…It’s Pocket Monster. Oh well.

Next there’s Super Mario Bros., which as far as I can tell doesn’t have any added bugs or anything.
Aladdin III is Magic Carpet 1001.
Adventure Island is Adventure Island.

Ugh this is boring. I’m only going to point out things that are mislabeled or interesting instead of listing every game.

Small Mary is really Dian Shi Ma Li, but Fortran has been deleted.

IMG_2015.JPG

Calculator is actually Donkey Kong Jr. Math only with the title screen removed.
Space ET is Space Invaders.
Pirates Microprose is Popeye but it starts on the wrong level.
Crystal Pony Tale is really Circus Charlie.

Death is Bomberman. Undead Boy is also Bomberman.

Golden Mario is really Super Mario Bros, but it is hacked to start on World L. Mario is really Super Mario Bros.

Undead Line is really Dig Dug. Gauntlet is also really Dig Dug. Smash KTV is also really Dig Dig.

Bookyman is actually Brush Roller. Same with Super Pac-Man. And Plot Boy. Plot Write is also really Brush Roller. Speed Painter is also really Brush Roller.

Lemmings is actually Mappy. Speedy Gonzalez is also actually Mappy. Ren and Stimpy is also really Mappy.  Awesome Possum Cens is also really Mappy. Kamikaze Squirrel is really Mappy.

I hate you, pirates. 😦

There are more duplicates, but I won’t write about them because I’m lazy.

OK that’s it for now. I’ll write more later.

Super Mario Bros. 2 Unbeatable Program

There are some bootleg versions of Super Mario Bros. 2j (lost levels) that put the disk-based game onto a cartridge.

Usually they look more or less like this:

IMG_7548

What Mario 2j carts usually look like

But they don’t all look like that. Sometimes they look like this:
img_7550

It says “unbeatable program” on it. Weird.

Well, let’s start it up.

img_9743

Huh. Everything appears to be as usual.

…until the game starts scrolling.

img_9744

…wait a second, is the HUD scrolling? Yes it is. It scrolls whenever the background scrolls.

After it scrolls long enough, it comes back around the other end.

img_9745

(no, this isn’t just a problem with the demo. It happens throughout the whole game.)

Anyway, that’s about it. Other than that thing with the HUD, it seems to be identical to the official Super Mario Bros. 2j.

**********************

By the way, I’m sorry I haven’t been posting here as much as usual. ): Unfortunately, I don’t have as much money to buy these games as I did before, so there won’t be as many posts. (don’t worry though I still have some stuff that I haven’t written about yet.)

If you want more posts here, then I’d really appreciate it if you donated some money to this site via the Patreon page. Whatever though. I don’t mind if you guys don’t donate anything because you aren’t really getting anything in return.

…If you want to support the famiclone blog and actually get something in return, you could buy some of this stuff:

http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=12901.0

I’ll use the money I get from there to buy Famiclone stuff.

The Power Joy Navigator, Part 3

Hello everyone.

I have finally stopped being lazy and I am FINALLY writing more about the Power Joy navigator.

IMG_5738

I’m REALLY sorry I took forever to do this, but I’m writing about it now. Unfortunately, my player 2 controller seems to be malfunctioning on the Power Joy Navigator. ):

But meh here you go.

IMG_5752

First off is Pulverization. It is a hack of Battle City with new levels and vertical scrolling. In my last post, I accidentally referred to it as Alienis, because they are very similar. It also changes sounds and graphics.

IMG_8020

IMG_5801

Next up is Alienis.

IMG_8011

Like the other games on the Navigator, the copyright is changed to say © Power Joy Ltd. instead of what it was supposed to say.

But whatever. What is Alienis?

Alienis is an advanced hack of Battle City developed by Inventor. Inventor is the same company that made that Pandamar hack of Super Mario Bros. that replaces Mario with a panda.

IMG_4684

Well, what is changed from Battle City to Alienis?

The biggest difference is that Inventor added vertical scrolling. Pretty neat, huh? Also they changed the sprites and background. I am not entirely sure what it is supposed to be, but the background is blue, and you play as weird looking vehicle things. Instead of just dying when you are hit, you have two HP. After the first hit, your ship is split in two. After a second hit, you lose a life. But instead of going back to the beginning, you just get the ship you are using replaced with a new one.IMG_8014

In the original Battle City, you had to kill all the enemy tanks in order to move on to the next level. In this game, the levels are harder and I have been so far unable to complete the first level. I haven’t really played it very much yet though, so I’m no one to judge.

Oh, and instead of guarding an eagle statue like the original Battle City, you are guarding a little house.IMG_8013IMG_8012

Well that’s that. The next game I will write about is Polar Bat.

Polar Bat? What’s that?

It is a NiceCode game.

公司标志

NiceCode Software’s logo.

And it features a guy who runs around at the bottom of the screen throwing snowballs up to attack the bats at the top of the screen, while dodging enormous snow-boulders and snow-icicles that will kill you if you don’t get out of the way.

IMG_8015IMG_8017

That’s about it for Polar Bat. Moving on to Diamond.

It is a either a knockoff or a hack of Breakout. Not much new, gameplaywise.

The last one I will write about today is Snowball. A simple but challenging puzzle game thing.

You control a snowman, and you have to push all of the snowballs into holes in the level. If you mess up, you have a once-per-level thing where you can take back the move you just made. And you can also reset the level.

IMG_8022

As you can see, that one is pretty easy. That’s because it’s the first level. The levels get more difficult as you progress through the game.

I’ve made it to level three in the few minutes I have played this game.

That’s it for today, guys. I will write more later.

Famicom Bootleg Competition?

Hey guys! So I am maybe going to start a competition for playing Famicom bootlegs.

I say “maybe” because I’m not sure how much interest there is going to be in this and if only 2 people are in the competition won’t happen.

Assuming people want to be in, here’s the plan: Every month (or other unit of time) there will be a new task that you have to do in a bootleg Famicom game, and you have to do the task and email your entry to an email that I will set up. Depending on how well you did the task, you will get points, which are added to your total. Whoever has the most points at the  end of the competition is the winner.

Not all the details have been sorted out yet (is TAS allowed? etc.) so (maybe) for more information go to this forum page because that is currently where the discussion about this possibly upcoming competition is going to be, as well as any updates or whatever. If you are interested let me know so I will know to get it set up. 🙂

Super Mario Bros. 256 Worlds

Hello, everybody. Today I’m going to write about this cartridge I got recently.

IMG_7548

As you can see, the label claims to be Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels. Known in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2.

I mean, I can’t read Japanese, but you can compare this to the official Lost Levels label and I think you’ll agree it is quite similar.

Mariobros2japanbox

Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels was only officially released on the Famicom on disk format for the Famicom Disk System. Maybe this cartridge is a copy of the disk game onto a cartridge. (They make those).

Well let’s power it on and see what it is:

IMG_7562

Hm. Just regular Super Mario Bros.

…wait.

World Y-1?

Why does it say that?

Because this is Super Mario Bros. 256 Worlds Version.

What’s that mean?

Well, you may know that the original Super Mario Bros. had a bonus where after you completed the game, you could use a level select to pick which world you were started on. 256 Worlds lets you have that level select right from the start. But that’s not all. The counter doesn’t stop at World 8, which is supposed to be the last world. It keeps going up from there. In fact, you can select 256 different worlds. All the worlds have one-character numbers though, so it displays some of them as World Y-1 or World !-1. And most of the times it just picks a random tile, like part of the ? block or part of a bullet bill block.

Of course, these aren’t actually secret levels that were left in the code. It just makes the game read garbage data and display weird levels like never-ending bonus levels, underwater castles, etc. Here are some pictures of the more interesting ones. (some of them are just duplicates of the normal levels)

IMG_7563

IMG_7565

So, that’s basically it for now. Bye guys!

“Elrond”

Hello everybody I got this game.

IMG_7545

IMG_7546

Well, let’s look at it.

I can’t read most of it because I can only read English, and only a little bit is in English. Some of it is Japanese, and some of it seems to be Chinese maybe.

But I can read the little bit. The front of the cartridge says “Toito”, which maybe is a misspelling of “Taito”. Maybe the bootleggers were pretending to be Taito.

And on the back it says “TV Game Cartridge.”

And on the label it says Elrond. Like in Lord of the Rings? I dunno. Well let’s put it in a Famiclone and see what it is.

IMG_7540

And here is “Elrond”:

IMG_7547

Wizards and Warriors. That doesn’t seem much like Elrond apart from the medieval times sort of setting. :\

Ah well. Still kinda interesting.

Bye! I’ll write more later.

 

 

Q&A for the Cool Shark 64

Q: What’s the Cool Shark 64?
A: It’s this thing, obviously:

IMG_7530

Q: What’s that? Is that a PS1?
A: No of course not it’s a famiclone. Duh. I don’t write about anything else on this blog.

Q: I dunno, it looks a lot like a PS1 to me.
A: To prove it’s not a PlayStation, let’s open up that “disk tray”.

IMG_7534

Q: ***GASP!!!!*** It’s lying! There are no disk trays to be found!
A: No of course there aren’t. It’s a famiclone, like I told you already.

Q: I suspect trickery. You are making that up. That’s not a real famiclone it is a PS1 that you glued a cartridge slot onto and taped a “Cool Shark 64” label onto.
A: No it’s not. Here are some more pictures of the ports, which are obviously not PS1 ports.

IMG_7531IMG_7532

Q: That’s obviously fake. It doesn’t have any controllers. A real Cool Shark 64 would have controllers, which this does not.
A: Here are your controllers.

IMG_7533

Q: Those are obviously fake. They are 3rd party PS1 controllers or something. As you can see, there are triangle buttons, square buttons, cross buttons, and circle buttons. The Famicom only had two buttons.
A: Those two extra buttons are autofire A and autofire B.

Q: Oh yeah dummy then how do you explain the shoulder buttons? Those would have no use on a Famicom.
A: There are no shoulder buttons.

IMG_7539

Q: I call photoshop. This is fake. I demand another picture so I can point out the flaws in it.
A: Here is another picture. You can see that power LED that lights up when you turn it on.

IMG_7540

Q: LALALALALALA I CAN’T HERE YOU FAKE FAKE PHOTOSHOP FAKE FAKE PS1
A: Go away.

That’s it for now guys. I’ll write more soon. I have a lot more games now that I can write about. Including that game in the picture.

Little Red Hood

Hello everybody! Today I’m going to write about Little Red Hood, a pirate original developed by Sachen. It was released on the Famicom by Sachen themselves, and it was later released on the NES by HES Interactive.

Unfortunately, these single-game versions are very expensive. Despite the game’s very low-quality gameplay (which I will get to soon), people gladly pay hundreds of dollars for it. Thus, I have to play it on a multicart. To be specific, I’m using this CoolBoy 400-in-1.

IMG_3299

CoolBoy 400-in-1 Real Game cartridge

So! Let’s get to the game. There are two different versions. One with a Taiwanese title screen, and another with an English one. I have the English one on that multicart.

IMG_3339

Little Red Hood title screen

Little Red Hood is (in)famous for its low quality. And yeah, it’s not super good. But it isn’t, as some people call it, the worst NES/Famicom game of all time. Out of all the ones I’ve played, that title would go to Egg Contest.

Yeah, generally speaking, if people say a game is the worst video game ever, or even just on a certain system, they’re usually wrong. E.T. on the Atari 2600? Not really super bad. Pac-Man on the Atari 2600? Same there. Although to be fair Little Red Hood is in my opinion worse than both of those games.

Unfortunately (or maybe to your relief) I can’t get any more screenshots of this game on my CRT TV, because right now my Famicom isn’t hooked up to it right now, and everybody else is watching a movie on the other TV, and it’s really late, so I will be forced to use an emulator to take these screenshots. 😦

Oh and while I’m on an emulator I may as well show you the Taiwanese title screen.

Screen Shot 2016-06-18 at 9.45.14 PM

Well, whatever. When you press start, you will be taken to the first level.

Screen Shot 2016-06-18 at 9.12.35 PM

As you can see, there are are a bunch of trees, a door, bad guys, and rocks. Plus there is “Little Red Hood” herself. No, not Little Red Riding Hood. Little Red Hood. Although the ending cutscene seems to imply it was supposed to be Little Red Riding Hood. I haven’t ever beaten this game though so I can’t show you a picture. Plus, you may not want spoilers.

Well, what’s the point of this game?

Well, first you have to avoid the zombie things, snakes, and other enemies. Also at random times a staircase will appear in the ground. There is literally nothing you can do to trigger this. It’s pretty random.

Screen Shot 2016-06-18 at 9.19.55 PM

Normally when you go in you can just find some money, plus some health replenishers, and sometimes a key.

Screen Shot 2016-06-18 at 9.20.05 PM

So! How do you go to the next level?

Well, Little Red Hood has to first enter the staircase and find the key. Sometimes it isn’t there though, so if you don’t find it you have to come back out and wait for the staircase to show up again and see if it shows up then. It’s just random.

When you acquire the keys, kick the trees over and over again until fruit falls out of them. Whether the fruit falls out is (again) totally random.

If you get a random unspecified amount of fruit, then the next time you go down the staircase you will advance to the next level.

Well, most of the levels are like that. One or two have slightly different ways to get the key, and some require you to go and get things from the store before the key shows up.

The store! What’s that? Shouldn’t I have mentioned that by now? No? Why not? Because it’s basically pointless. You go into them by going in those doors. All the stores have the same items, even the ones that are right next to each other. All the items you can get from the store you can find underneath rocks.

Oh, and yeah, you can get things from under rocks. What stuff? Well, potions that replenish your health, a weapon that attacks the zombies, and some other item I forget. You can get this in the stores too.

The stuff you can’t get in the stores that you can get under rocks are extra bad guys, and you can find money, and a dog that will attack enemies for you.

And that’s about it.

Oh, and did I mention that enemies respawn IMMEDIATELY after they are killed? There’s literally no time before they respawn. So it’s not as much killing them as teleporting them to another part of the screen.

…And that’s it. The end. Bye! I’ll write more later.

P.S. there’s also a bonus game sort of where you fly with a balloon and collect money, but I’m not sure exactly what triggers it. It seems to be totally random.

 

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.

IMG_5845

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.

IMG_6510

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…

IMG_6511

…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.
