Castlevania Dracula X

I thought it’d be interesting to start showing off some obscure pirated/counterfeit games. Pirated games can be a weird thing. They are fake, rare, and cared for or hated. Allow me to introduce the pirate of the day…

Castlevania Dracula X for SNES

Pirate Games - Castlevania Dracula X

There’s not a whole lot different from this pirated version, except if you look very close at the artwork on the label, it’s not as clear of an image. The game is also in Japanese. Other than that I believe it works like a charm. Thought I’d share a few photos of the game.

The back side of the cartridge is blank as can be.

Quick Shot Controller for Sega Genesis Review

Quick Shot Controller

For a while I was having a little trouble with Sega Genesis controllers. For instance some times while playing an adventure game I would press the down button to make the character duck down, but instead because of the D-pad the character would only move left or right, rarely ducking. The character would only duck if I was pressing the down direction exactly in the exact middle of the D-pad. It was very very sensitive.

So! I received a Quick Shot controller in the mail and gave it a try. I was skeptic at first but I gotta say, all my problems disappeared! The Quick Shot control pad is so awesome! Super accurate and great control. It feels spot on and I’m so glad I found it. The cord is nice too because it’s not so damn thick, easy to roll up.

If you’re also having issues with your Genesis D-pad, try the Quick Shot controller out. They can be found relatively cheap on ebay or amazon.

Nightmare Busters

Nightmare Busters

I’ll keep this short and sweet. The fine folks over at Super Fighter Team have a new run and gun game for the Super Nintendo called Nightmare Busters.

Nightmare Busters

 

The first game made for SNES in 14 years. Works on both SNES and Super Famicom and PAL.

Nightmare Busters

The game appears to be pretty awesome. Seems like a mix between Alice in Wonderland meets Castlevania. The colors and graphics are spot on.

Nightmare Busters

Play alone or grab a friend to play on the 2 player cooperative mode.

Nightmare Busters

Nightmare Busters is available for pre order and is expected to be shipped out 2013. $60 will get you a game cartridge with authentic plastic shell and a full color instruction manual that come inside a sturdy full colored box.

Seicross

Seicross

My brother and I can both agree that Seicross is an underrated game for the NES. If you own a Nintendo Entertainment System and don’t own Seicross, then you probably should.

It might not be the best game ever made, but it sure is a lot of fun. It’s one of those games that no one really talks about, but it’s there and it’s awesome!

Seicross, originally an arcade game called Sector Zone was later ported to the Famicom and NES. It’s kind of a side scrolling future motor bike shooting game.

During game play the player rides a hovering motor bike racing through each level, shooting enemies, collecting energy and saving your blue friends. All of the levels are similar as in they scroll right, but there are the “FAST” levels and the “SLOW” levels and you’ll notice the differences. The fast levels have enemies on motor bikes chasing you around while the slower levels do not, but they have a lot more obstacles.

The game continues on until you lost all of your lives. This game can be forgiving as you can obtain lives easily by racking up the points. More points = more lives. You can find this game pretty cheap on ebay so if you’re looking for some good cheap fun, check this game out. You won’t be disappointed.

Super Bat Puncher

Here’s something to look out for…. Super Bat Puncher. Created by Julius Riecke. Currently still in the works but has a lot completed so far. Punching bats has never been so much fun until now. You can play the demo athttp://morphcat.de/superbatpuncher/

I asked Julius if he plans on having cartridges of this game made and he stated that yes they will be made. There are a few demo carts out there right now. More later in time. Check out this little clip from SBP.
