Pipe V

So fast forward 4 days and I read something online that set off an alarm in my head. Pirate copies are made to work with famiclones not the original console. So when I got home I grabbed my Yobo NES a...

GameBoy Color 23 in 1 Cartridge

I’m not going into great details of each game, but I will say Bonk’s Adventure and Bomb Jack are my favorites of the bunch, and my least favorite game would really have to be Minesweeper. I though...

Pirate Games: The KT-Super 90 in 1

My top 3 games from this cartridge would have to be Battletoads, Duck Tales, and The Punisher. I’m very aware of Duck Tales and Battletoads, but the Punisher was a nice little surprise. I hadn’t p...

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...

Castlevania for the Atari 2600

Ever hear of the game Roc N Rope for the Atari 2600? It was not that popular or well received when it was first released in 1984 based on the Konami arcade game. However, thanks to this game we now ca...

Pirate Games: Pokemon Stadium

The game consists of two modes, arcade mode and vs mode. I'm sure you can tell what these do but just in case you don't know, arcade mode is like the story mode where you will do battle against the co...

Street Fighter 2

The game's music is just awful and deserves the mute button. This is what you can expect from a pirate though. This one is an original pirate that got hacked to different other franchises. I'm sure th...

Super Donkey Kong 2

You play as Diddy Kong in the ship level but at the third and final level you'll be the snake mutation of Diddy Kong. This one really creeps me out but being serious and all, it's just the jumping sna...

Earth Worm Jim 3

The gameplay was done quite well and is very responsive. The level design is decent and does its best to mimic the SNES version. They even added the select button function to switch from your head whi...

TMNT 2

There is also the super move that each turtle has. They are all the same and as effective so it doesn't matter which turtle you use, you'll be alright with either one. There is an added movement that ...

Tekken 2 (SNES)

Pirates come in crappy shapes and sizes. From the Famicom to the Nintendo 64 (Believe it or not) But there are some that just seem to good to be true. This is where Tekken 2 for the SNES comes in. Yes...

Choplifter HD

I'm always mixed when it comes to retro remakes, especially if it was a game I really used to enjoy. Choplifter was one of those games I never thought caught on like it should. While it had a popular...

Kart Fighter

There is not much more to say about this game, it's quite easy but surely one you have to try out mainly because of the weird factor it contains. You can also get this game via-reproduction which is c...

Fans of the Sega Genesis beat-em up game, Streets of Rage almost got a similar style fighting game for the Super Nintendo. Developed by Ocean Software, the game was set to be released alongside the fi...

Rocman X

The game is quite fun if you want to play something challenging but I advice you that if you don't have any patience you'll be left with a big gap in your head. There is stuff to like and to hate abou...

Super Bros 8 (FC)

So this week we have Super Bros 8 for the Famicom/NES consoles. The game is actually a hack of Don Doko Don 2. The game has been hacked to look similar to a Mario game and how so? Well all you had to ...

Tyrannosaurus Tex

Since we are talking the early Gameboy color here it is no surprise the world of Tyrannosaurus Tex was mainly halls and corridors kind of like the first Wolfenstein. All the object in the game are dra...

Cracked Games: Soul Blade

Fighters are usually good games but when it comes to pirate fighters, that's a different story. Soul Blade for the SNES does not make any justice for the real deal. It was a nice attempt while it last...

Unreleased: Tattoo Assassins

Sometimes you might turn on the television or read something on the internet and say; “I can make something better than that.” Most of the time once you say that you realize you can’t and it end...

Super Mario’s Wacky Worlds

In the end, Super Mario’s Wacky Worlds was not released and it was a good thing too. Due to the limitations of the CD-i, several features could not be included in the game, such as large numbers of ...

Sonic Crackers

Another theory about Sonic Crackers is that it was a hoax by Sega. The reasoning behind this is the date of release was April 1st 1994. While in the planning stages for Sonic 4 a new technology was a...

Hardcore
