Ok, so, I have quite a few FamiCom games now, and most of them I know the titles of.  I know some because of their popularity, such as "Hoshi no Kirby", or "The Goonies", but not all.  Some carts have English text on them, like "IKARI DOGOSOKEN", so that is no problem.  The problem lies within the carts that are only labled in Japanese, and only have Japanese text on their title screens.   Take these two carts for instance...

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v498/8-bitcultmember/fwstuff/FC001.jpg)
This one has the text "HINO TORI" under the title, but there is far to much text on the front for that to be the entire title.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v498/8-bitcultmember/fwstuff/FC002.jpg)
This one has no English text on it whatsoever.

Does anybody here know the names of either or both of these games?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on November 13, 2006, 09:41:32 PM
The second game is Getsufu Maden, or Geppu Maden. I've been looking for that one for a while. It's supposed to be very good. I don't recognize the first.

Thank you.  It is fun but also difficult, and very strange.  What do you mean by "or" though?  You can't remember wich one of the two it is, or does it just depend on how you pronounce it?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on November 13, 2006, 09:47:51 PM
Well, the common name I've seen for it is the first one I listed; the second name I listed is from the Famicom 1983-1994 history book. Go with the second, as I have on the games list -- unless we hear otherwise from those who speak the language.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: super56k on November 13, 2006, 10:03:25 PM
Ok, I will, and thank you. :) 

I always put a label with the title in English on the back of all my import games.  It does not touch the original label, and so it should not ruin anything.  Now to find out the name of the other one.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on November 13, 2006, 10:17:11 PM
Found the first one: Hino Tori: Hououhen Gaou no Bouken. I think I placed the colon correctly. Also, it's sometimes written as one word: "Hinotori."


Title: Re: Game Identification

I have them both!
The first is Hi no Tori, something close to Firebird in English, a cult game!
The second one is Geffuu Maden, one game that I have played on and on,
until the end. Had to make maps and stuff! VERY COOL game!!!
It is said that The Legend of Zelda 2: Adventures of Link was inspired on it,
but The Prophet cant' tell if it's true!

The Prophet recommends!!!

Are you using that "Famicom 1983-1994 history" book that you mentioned earlier for all of these?  What book is that?

I recognized two of the three carts you've posted; the one with Buddha threw me off. I used the Famicom book to confirm them: HERE (http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=346.0).

I have spent some time online and I have figured out all of the rest of my titles that I had questions on except one.

I even found the name of this one!

That's what I need someone who speaks Japanese to do. I want to translate all the titles into English. And eventually I plan to have a carts list where you can search by cart color and then publisher.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: super56k on November 16, 2006, 03:12:29 AM
A database like that would definately be helpful.  What about featherplukinfilms?  He moved to Japan from the US right?  He might be able to help.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Profeta Yoshitake on November 17, 2006, 09:44:04 AM
That game with the Soccer theme is the classic CAPTAIN TSUBASA!
The second version fo the game is AWESOME!!!
For the soccer lovers, at least!!! [like the Prophet!]
The Prophet loves the Captain Tsubasa 2 even more because
in this one, Tsubasa plays in So Paulo Futebol Clube, my soccer team!

This game is from an anime, and is one of the earliest instances of
the Tecmo Theater series, which were recognizable by the movie-like
cut-scenes between the game levels! The three Ninja Ryukenden are
the most beloved cassettes fo this series!

Got myself searchin' and found a few:

Top Koei 1: Nobunaga no Yabou Sengoku Gunyuden
Top Koei 2: Sangokushi

From bottom left:
1
2
Shin Moero!! Pro Yakyuu!
Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Jima II

Tantei Jinguji Saburou Yokohamakou Hisshougaku
Tsuppari Oozumo

Uruseiyatsura Rum no Wedding Bell
11
12
Majoudensetsu II Daimashikyou Galious
Musashi no Ken Tadaima Shugyouchu
Tokorosan no Mamorumo Semerumo
Doraemon
Harikiri Stadium
Shinjinrui


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Profeta Yoshitake on December 04, 2006, 12:27:16 PM
Under Doraemon is my beloved Harikiri Stadium, exactly that one which I have chosen
as one of the most beautiful labels. And maybe one of the coolest baseball games out there!

Under the Galius, there is one copy of Super Star Soldier, and under this one, there is one
Yamchamaru.

The black case and red & gold big cart at top left seems to be Shin Moero!! Pro Yakyuu! or
something like that! I have three games of this series. The american Bases Loaded 2 is
a localized version fo the second Moero!! Pro Yakyuu game in the series.

The white/top left fame is Tecmo's Tsuppari Oozumo, a great Sumo game. I just love this one!
You are going to need patience to beat this one!

The last one that The Prophet recognizes is the bottom-left pink one: Takahashi Meijin no
Bouken Jima II
, aka Adventure Island 2!

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Slushie on January 05, 2007, 04:47:51 AM
I hope someone here can help me find out what this fun game is.

It's a game on my 190-in-1 Cart. The title of the game on cart is "MO AY LIN".
I searched that on Google, and couldn't find anything. But it's a multicart, so the title is probably tweaked or completely different.

It's a really fun puzzle/action game. You play as this little character and can push rocks around and such to solve each area. Sort of reminds me of Lolo sometimes, one of the reasons I love it.
I really want to find out what this game really is. Then maybe I'll be able to buy the actual Cart somewhere.

This is another part that really bugs me, I asked this question along time ago on a NES Forum, and got an answer, but lost what the title was. But hopefully someone here knows.

Here are some pictures of the game I took.
Click any of the images to view the bigger full-sized image.

by the way, just thought i would clear up the P, H, F confusion in Getsufuu maden.

See, thing is p h and f sounds are all very similar in japanese.


Getsupuu

Getsuhuu

or Getsufuu would techinically all be "Nearly correct"

as far as its concerned though, getsufuu maden is the correct title.

see, ぷ=pu 
ふ=fu OR hu 

only difference is a small dot or no difference at all for hu/fu

Hi! good! i really need help with the names of Famicom games, the ones that have the title in english are ok but the others... I have no way to find out it's names since I buy from japan directly, mostly looking at the pics... I need to learn japanese right now... sigh!
So, maybe you can help me to name the games I've shown in the pictures in my presentation thread:

http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=523.15

I Can make direct pics of the portraits too. Who knows, maybe some of you can tell the name of the game just looking at its japanese title... that would speed the identification a lot.

BTW, can you tel me any list with names and the image of the box of the games?

Thx a lot!

Let me know

I think this one is called "Frog River" on the cart, a Frogger ripoff.  Only ANY jump you make kills you.  Real fun.

This is a strip rock/scissors/paper game, I forget what it's called on the cart.  Isn't this a Hacker FDS game?
(http://www.speakeasy.org/~sjmaks/rcm2.jpg)

This one is called "Two Pair" on the cart.

The second has got to be Super Pig's Emi's Hot Strip Game, and the third seems like it's a common unlicensed game but I can't remember it exactly. Jbholio would know, if it's what I'm thinking it is. I've never seen the Frogger one.

BTW: Anyone know if Emi's is called Wild Ball on some multi-carts?

All of them are from the same manufacturer, Hwang Shinmei.  They are taiwanese and they produced Magic Jewelry, that great Columns rip-off. So, that game you mention is no Hacker game.

Exactly right!  Hwang Shinwei (aka RCM) made weird games that are found on some multicarts.  They can also be as single cart.  The multi you have probably starts with 8 "Tetris" games.  Tetris 3 (3D Block) and 8 (Magic Jewelry II) are 2 games made by Hwang Shinwei.  It's one of the best multicart.

I'm still confused about the second one. The image of that girl is the same from Super Pig's Hot Strip.

I'm sure they stoled from Super Pig, but is only a guess. By the way, that multicart exist as a "150 in 1", too. I wish I could have it, as it contains my favourite game: City Connection.

Sure. Just take a look at the new multicarts. Instead of the original Battle City, they use a pirate version called "Tank" by some company called "YS". That's why the title screen reads "Tank A 1990" or "Tank K 1990" instead of "Battle City".

Technically, I don't think Hwang Shinwei's and Super Pigs are piraters. More like unlicenseders, since their games were originals, even if the premise of the game was common.

I see a few of them have part numbers on them. Have you tried to run the part numbers on Google yet? I usually have no issues identifying cartridges with part numbers. I just type "Famicom" then the part number, and view cached. It usually always brings me to the cart list here. :P ...  the ones without part numbers are the ones that stump me.

I once played a famicom game when I was young(15 years ago !), but I don't know the name of the game since it was written in Japanese both on the cart and in the title screen. I'm trying to get the game but I can't because I don't know it's name and I don't remember the cart.
what I remember is that it is a space game, the main character is someone that has wings and fly(looks like an angel ) he shots on space ships and other enemies. Each level contains 3 parts: in the first part the screen moves vertically until you reach a huge person, then you enter to his body through his mouth and continue playing inside his body horizentally(the 2nd part) at the end of this part you have to kill 2 snakes and then you get out of the body ( also through the mouth) and  return to continue the first part(vertically) until you reach a boss monster ( two statues that shots on you) when you kill them another monster comes( I think it is a crocodile) when you kill him you enter to castle( the 3rd part of the level) and the screen moves horizentally then you reach to huge spaceship, when you kill it you finish the level and start a new level. The game is very difficult since you have only 3 lives, but you may enter a secret code in the title screen and get 30 lives. the title screen has a 2 two players option, the 2 players play together at the same time. I think the game was produced by Konami( but I'm not sure) ! Does anybody know the name of this game ?

Um...yeah that dude damn bugs me. I hope once he gets one of every game, he'll stop bidding.

BTW: Is that the only spelling for the word? Bishoujo? I ask because the games list has: Bishojou.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on July 14, 2007, 03:34:42 PM
If you want the real spelling, then there's only one: bishoujo.

Some people are too lazy to write the long "o" (=ou), so it becomes bishojo, which isn't really correct any more, but somewhat a accepted transliteration. The spelling you wrote, "bishojou", is utterly and completely wrong and thus not acceptable.

美 bi (beautiful)
少 shou (little)
女 jo (woman)

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on July 14, 2007, 04:47:44 PM
Wikipedia... usually a very good starting point. The trick is to double and triple chack the info spread there. Then wikipedia can be a very helpful source of information.
If you're in doubt about any other titles, you know who to ask.  ;) Transcriptions are my specialty. :D


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on July 14, 2007, 05:17:42 PM
Speaking of which...not that I'd expect you to do it, but for some time I've wanted to list all of the titles in Japanese and English, which means some would have to be translated to Japanese or English. I, unfortunately, don't have the skill to do it or I would've already. My goal is to have the primary title for each game be the title that appears on the title screen (for a Japanese title screen, primary title would be Japanese; for an English title screen, the primary title would be English) with translations for each title either English or Japanese based on the title screen. It would take some time and knowledge of the language, so I've been working on correcting errors mostly...that's about all I can do.


Title: Re: Game Identification

Can anyone tell me if this one is a boot or not? It looks legit, but the plastic used, feels kinda cheap, and the sticker on the back label is different than most Famicom releases...  not to mention that the part numbers don't match up either.

Is Wild also known as Sezon? Sezon has been a mystery to me, and this is the first time I've seen a game with Wild's name on it, though I've seen a screenshot of Wild's logo before.

Se-ra-fuku bishoujo zukan

"Illustrated encyclopedia of beautiful girls in Sailor suits" ::) ;D
HENTAI!! ;)


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on July 28, 2007, 05:13:27 PM
Does the title translate to that quote, or is that from elsewhere? What's the title translate as? Just seems like a lot of English to come out of Se-ra-fuku Bishoujo Zukan.

The list has this game as Vols. 1-6. Is this Vol. 6?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on July 28, 2007, 05:42:15 PM
Se-ra-fuku = Sailor suit
bishoujo = beautiful girl
zukan = illustrated encyclopedia

I translated that. ;)
It's a special characteristic of Japanese that phrases can be very short in comparison to English, that's why it was so hard to translate Japanese Famicom and Super Famicom games with the little space alotted to the text.

There seem to be 6 parts. This one is part 4.


Title: Re: Game Identification

For those who know japanese fluently (I'm lookin at you Manuel ;)) could you please translate some of my Famicom game titles into English equalients (or at least as close as you can)? Here they are:

Famicom Jump! Eiyuu Retsuden
Ganbare Goemon! Karakuri Douchuu
Gegege no Kitarou Youkai Dai Makyou
Getsufuu Maden
Hissatsu Doujou Yaburi
Hokkaido Rensa Satsujin: Okhotsu ni Shoyu
Ikki
Matendouji Crystal Palace
Takahashi Meijin no Bug-tte Honey
Walkuere no Bouken Tokino Kogi Densetsu
Youkai Douchuuki



thanks!


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on July 31, 2007, 08:06:46 AM
Some of those seem a bit hard to translate, but I'll try anyway.

Famicom Jump! Eiyuu Retsuden
-> Eiyuu = hero; retsuden = series of biographies
I don't know how to get that into a good English title. ???

Ganbare Goemon! Karakuri Douchuu
-> Ganbare Goemon = Do your best, Goemon!
    Karakuri = mechanism, trick, deception, intrigue
    douchuu = along the way
This is a very weird title. I'd need to know the contents of the game to judge what title would be best, as karakuri has a lot of fine nuances between its different meanings.

Gegege no Kitarou Youkai Dai Makyou
->Gegege no Kitarou = it's a manga from 1959 about ghosts
    youkai = ghost
    dai = big
    makyou = world of demons; a place of vice; ...

Getsufuu Maden
-> The Evil Legend of Moonwind? (weird title again...)

Hissatsu Doujou Yaburi
-> Certain kill. Escape from the Dojo

Hokkaido Rensa Satsujin: Okhotsu ni Shoyu
-> Series of murders in Hokkaido: To disappear in Ohotsk
(the last word isn't read "shoyu", but "kiyu" as much as I found out)

Ikki
Not sure... that seems to be a Name.

Matendouji Crystal Palace
-> Skyscraping Boy: Crystal Palace

Takahashi Meijin no Bug-tte Honey
-> Master Takahashi's Honey the Bug

Walkuere no Bouken Tokino Kagi (not "kogi"!) Densetsu
Valkyrie's Adventure: The Legend of the Key of Time

Youkai Douchuuki
-> Ghosts' Travel Journal

Post by: satoshi_matrix on September 05, 2007, 05:03:37 PM
manuel (or anyone else) I've got a few more game names I'd like translated please and thank you...

Chuuka Taisen

Gegege no Kitarou - I know I asked about this one already, but I'm a little confused. From what I know of Japanese, "no" is a possessive word ('s in english) and Kitarou is a boy's name (I'm assuming the lead character) but what does gegege mean?

Reigen Doushi

Son Son (I'm assuming this is a name?)


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: satoshi_matrix on September 05, 2007, 10:57:50 PM
Valkyrie no Bouken: Toki no Kagi Densetsu

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on September 06, 2007, 01:09:06 AM
Valkyrie no Bouken: Toki no Kagi Densetsu

How do I write this out in Katakana/Heragana?

ワルキューレのぼうけん: ときのかぎでんせつ

(with kanji it's ワルキューレの冒険 時の鍵伝説)


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: satoshi_matrix on September 08, 2007, 03:13:51 AM
Thanks ugly. some more for those japanese inclided  ;D

Meaning of:

Gegege no Kitarou
Ryou Maboroshi Doushi (also could someone right it out in hiragana? bablefish doesnt support romanji)
Nazo no Kabe
The subtitle of Famicom detective club - Kieta Koukeisha (Kouhen)


many thanks all of you. you guys are truly awesome.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: kite200 on September 08, 2007, 03:40:12 AM

Reigen Doushi: れいげんどうし

The Heartless Companion

Chuuka Taisen: ちゅうか対戦

Middle Kingdom War

OR

Midsummer War


Ryou Maboroshi Doushi:

りょうまぼろしどうし

I have no clue how to translate this, I mean it could be

The Skill of the Companion Illusion

or something like that but who knows you didn't show me the kanji


Nazo no Kabe means Mystery of the Wall

謎の壁

or in hiragana

なぞのかべ

Gegege no Kitarou just means

Kitarou's Gegege 

ゲゲゲのきたろう

WTF a gegege is I dont know but it's not a word.

Kieta Koukeisha (きえた後継者) means "The Dissapearing Succsessor"


EDIT: WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THIS FORUM NOT ACCEPTING JAPANESE CHARACTERS INPUTTED ON A MAC, JESUS CHRIST DO I HAVE TO USE WINDOWS >,<








Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on September 08, 2007, 03:58:50 AM
Gegege no Kitarou

That's a long-running manga/anime.  Gegege is more than likely some Japanese onomatopoeia.  For what it's worth, AniDB (http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=1451) lists synonyms for the anime as "Cackling Kitarou" and "Spooky Kitarou".


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: kite200 on September 08, 2007, 04:10:15 AM
Ok then, thats what it is


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on September 08, 2007, 10:46:30 AM
Some corrections to kite's answer:

Reigen Doushi was a Hongkong movie and is known as "Mr Vampire" as English title.
 "ryou maboroshi doushi" : such a spelling is highly uncommon. If you read the characters properly it's - yes - Reigen Doushi. (You should post me pic to make sure, though)

For "chuuka taisen" a picture would be nice. I assume it's 中華大戦. This would mean "Great Chinese War".

Nazo no Kabe doesn't mean "Mystery of the Wall", but the other way round: "Wall of Riddles" or "Mysterious Wall", as you like.
Mystery of the wall would be Kabe no nazo.  ;)

For Gegege no Kitarou look up the wikipedia page. It's informative:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeGeGe_no_Kitaro (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeGeGe_no_Kitaro)

Kieta Koukeisha (きえた後継者) = "The Disappeared Successor"

I was a bit late because I didn't have the time to read all new threads the last days.
I hope I was still of help. Next time pictures would make a lot of stuff easier.  ;)


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: satoshi_matrix on September 08, 2007, 04:24:04 PM
Thanks for all your help you guys. Sorry about the lack of images. Next time I'll be sure to scan them.

Chuuka Taisen is labeled as 中華大戦 with hiragana above it so that's correct.
Reigen Doushi is written entirely in kanji so I can't read it at all. It's refered to on many sites including wikipedia as  "ryou maboroshi doushi" so that's why I said that. The name Reigen Doushi was used when I bought it from Kris before he closed up shop.
Gegege is what I was wondering about too....it doesn't seem to be a word, I thought it might be onamonapia like doki doki panic.

I have a question about what else is written on Gegege no Kitaro. What's written in black above the game title and what is written in purple at the bottom?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on September 09, 2007, 03:53:22 AM
The black is Family Computer (you should know that by now  ;)).

The purple is "Youkai Daimakyou" (妖怪代魔境).  That's the subtitle of the game.  I'm not sure what that means.

Post by: kite200 on September 09, 2007, 04:04:38 AM
not quite sure how to translate that, its not possible to translate to something that sounds as nice.

but heres a stab at it


Gegege no Kitarou: The Generation of the Demonic Ghost Region.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on September 09, 2007, 07:24:22 AM
No, no, Kite. UglyJoe had one kanji wrong. It's 大 (big) and not 代 (generation).

Personally I'd translate it to: Gegege no Kitarou - The Demon World (literally it would be "The big Demon World", but that sounds kinda off for my taste)


Title: Re: Game Identification

Hey guys, I'm going to get schooled hardcore for asking this but ehhh we're all friends here right  ::).

All the famicom Rockman games are labeled in romanji Rockman on their cartridges, though other games such as Rockman Mega World for the Mega Drive is labeled in katakana as ロックマン.

My question: what is the second symbol in ロックマン? The ッ? Katakana always screws me up because of the similarity of the symbols. I know that shi and tsu are very close in appearnce and can't determine which one it is, and more to the point, why its even there. You could spell Rockman perfectly fine as simply ロクマン, so why the ッ?

It's a little tsu, it doubles the consonant of the superseding syllable.

example:
イカ    = Ika
イッカ = Ikka

Post by: kite200 on September 10, 2007, 01:37:46 AM
^

double consonant


lots of japanese teachers refer to it as a skipping sound.

you kinda pause for a sec when saying it.

you don't actually pronounce the little tsu as tsu

Ah. and the reason why ロックマン has the ッ is because the "ck" in "Rockman" is pronounced the same? c = ku, k = ku, so therefore ック...making it in romanji, Rokkuman? What about the double letter line that is more commonly used? Could it also be ロクーマン? Something tells me no, that would be instead, Rokuuman right?

Post by: kite200 on September 10, 2007, 04:29:15 AM
the bar is for long vowel not double consonant

okay, translation of these two in both Japanese and English please:

I know one of them translates as Hissatsu Doujou Yaburi by the very small hiragana written in.

Sorry to jump in the middle of this one, satoshi, but I need this confirmed: HERE (http://page18.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/w12295725). I think it's Super Lode Runner -- at least that's how the pic saves.

スーパーロードランナーです

Yeah, Super Load Runner.

okay, translation of these two in both Japanese and English please:

I'll do what I can:

Reigen Doushi
霊幻道士
Released on the NES as Phantom Fighter, but that's not a literal translation.

---

Hissatsu Doujou Yaburi
必殺道場破り

Not sure what the best "translation" would be, but here's a breakdown:

    *  必殺 【ひっさつ】 (n) certain kill; ED
    * 道場破り 【どうじょうやぶり】 (n) challenge another training group and defeat each member; ED

thanks for the help uglyjoe. The most important part is to get the japanese correct so I can list it. The English is just for my own memory for when people come over ansd see my Famicom games and ask what the hell it means  ;D

So how about for 必殺道場破り

I call it in english:

Definite Killer: the challenge of rivals?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on September 13, 2007, 07:41:27 PM
That would not quite be it. I think it's near impossible to translate that title into incisive English.
A "dojo" is, as you may know" a type of fighting school you could say. There are rivaling dojos and when one challenges another and defeats it completely you call that literally a dojo yaburi (yaburi=destruction). 
You can see that in (old) Kung Fu movies a lot.

Hello everyone at Famicomworld.com!
(Sorry for my English, and yeah i do suck at MS Paint  :D)

I had remembered 3 Famicom games that i've played but i have little clues about them.  :-\
(I played them  when i was 7) I'll try to describe everything at my best.  ;)
At the 3 games you walk from the left of the screen to the right (Sidescroller? :P)

1.) You are a boy with a blue helmet (American football helmet maybe?) and at the intro
you are standing in front of a big door (Castle  or a mounth maybe?) and at the first map, you have to walk throught at a carnival. (You can kick balls too maybe?) I

2.) You are with a bunch of cats, that has weapons like umbrella, and ninja sword.
3.) You are with a monk (A guy in grey robes) and you are wandering in a castle (?) and you can
punch (Throw blue fireballs maybe?) and you can go with another guy in golden armor
(Knight maybe?). In the front of the game's casette there is a castle at the background, and a knight in the foreground, with thunders and clouds surrounding the castle.

Images:
 Game 1.)

There's a very small number of Micro-Genius collectors out there. Baby Mario can sell for around $10 cart only, and Super Mario 4 around the same but usually less. Baby Mario is just Bio Miracle, a Konami game, so there's really not much special about it other than the label. SMB4 is a basic hack of Armadillo and probably the most common of the Mario hacks; this one looks like it might just be SMB3...you'd have to pop it in your NES/Fami to find out. With the cases and cart in mint condition, I'd put the value between $15 and $30 for each game (closer to $15 for SMB3, but on the higher end for SMB4 and Baby Mario). It'd likely be less because of the sticker damage. Let me know if you're selling.

Can't help you Switchstance, but speaking of the legend of kage here's a rather funnt review:

http://www.seanbaby.com/nes/w20-09.htm

His list of the top 20 worst NES games is mostly accurite, but I don't agree with Fist of the North Star. That game might not be great, but its the only game I've ever played where you punch people till they explode. That's gotta count for something.

If you've never read this list I recommend reading though it.

I'm looking for two things:

First, could one of you guys attempt to provide a rough english trasnlation for:

hino tori: hou ou hen gaou no hou ken

As well, I want to double check my katakana is correct for the following:

Famicom Disk System RAM Adaptor
Boulder Dash
Lucky Seven Lines

please provide the names of these in katakana.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on December 28, 2007, 04:31:36 PM
Hi no Tori is a famous manga series by Tezuka Osamu as you might know.
Roughly translated it would be a "firebird". In our western territory we'd refer to it as "phoenix" I guess.
hououhen -> hen means "part" or "chapter". So the title refers to the part of the story about the "houou". This houou is often erroneously referred to as phoenix, too, but the real origin is in Chinese mythology, where it is known as "fenghuang"; feng is the male and huang the female version of the divine birds.
Try google if you want to know more. ;)

Gaou no bouken (!not! "hou ken"). I don't know much about the hinotori story, so I don't know who Gaou is, maybe a character from the story. It would translate to "Gaou's adventure".

Famicom Disk System RAM Adaptor
ファミコンディスクシステムRAMアダプター

Boulder Dash
I'm not sure about that... might be ボウルダーダッシュ

Lucky Seven Lines
ラッキーセブンライン


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: satoshi_matrix on December 28, 2007, 10:17:15 PM
wonderful work manuel. I sure do appricate all your hard work you put into your posts. So just out of ceriosity, can you write back to me the hino tori game's title? I think I put spaces whereI shouldn't have and I want to ensure it's correct.

As you may know, I am endevouring to make cover artwork for my ever growing Famicom collection, In doing so I want a standaized system to name the games. Unfortuntely when it comes to what's provided on the carts,  Famicom games are all over the map and anything but standard. Some games with English titles are written entirely in katakana (ex Super Mario Brothers FDS), most seem to have the katakana directly above it (Clu Clu Land, Super Mario Brothers 3 etc) and some are entirely in Engish and have no katakana anywhere on the cart (like Boulder Dash). So taking all these systems into account, I use a system for the spines where I provide three lines of information:

1: The title of the game in English (small text) [ex. Super Mario Brothers]
2: The title of the game in Japanese hiragana/katakana as applies (large text) [ex スーパーマリオブラザーズ]
3: The title of the game in Japanese romanji (smallest text) [ex. Sūpā Mario Burazāzu]

As well since I can neither read kanji nor duplicate it with a reasonablly sized font, any titles with kanji characters get replaced with hiragana. This is why I so often come to you to try to sort out the traslations.

Kite200 was a bit faster again.
Only one thing: gaou is written in kanji on the original cart.  ;)
火の鳥 鳳凰編 我王の冒険
Hino Tori Houou-Chapter Gaou's Adventure
http://www.famicom.biz/all/htmls/6800000068246.html (http://www.famicom.biz/all/htmls/6800000068246.html)

Hi no tori doesn't mean "phoenix" at all, by the way. Hi no tori plain and simply means fire-bird. The phoenix (the bird that rises from the ashes after it burned) is "fushichou" 不死鳥 ("immortal bird") in Japanese. Just on a side note.  These are times when I can use the knowledge I acquired in university. ;)


I also checked Boulder Dash and I found out that on the original cart it says バルダーダッシュ (barudādasshu)
http://www.famicom.biz/all/htmls/6800000003889.html (http://www.famicom.biz/all/htmls/6800000003889.html)

It's really hard to make standardized titles for Famicom stuff, because virtually every other cart is different in its naming. :D
Good luck.

thanks kite and manuel. I'm glad to know the boulder dash story because as you can see from the pic, the actual game cart has no katakana written on it at all.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on December 29, 2007, 05:20:50 PM
The katakana is there on the cart (in very small letters though) directly under the title.
It's good to see on the box of the game, on the yellow helmet.

I know it doesn't mean phoenix, but the official american title of the show/manga was phoenix, so I decided it would be good to use it in the english translation

case and point (manga scan) http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/40/Hi_no_tori_english_6.jpg

also when I went to the Osamu Tezuka exhibit at the San Francisco Asian Art Musuem it used that title as well, so considering that exhibit was mainly donated by the Tezuka estate I assume it's "official" enough


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on December 29, 2007, 08:17:11 PM
Then it's ok I guess.
I didn't know that the manga was translated with "Phoenix".

a few more:

this is on one of my multicarts labeled "Maze Song"

Post by: kite200 on December 29, 2007, 09:44:31 PM
maze song I have no clue there's no kana so it may be chinese, ask manuel about it.

but the cart is called

GUREITO BATORU SAIBAA

Great Battle Cyber


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on December 29, 2007, 09:55:19 PM
Kite is always faster.  :D

He already had Great Battle Cyber (what a name!  ;) )

The first one reads "meikyuu kumikyoku".
meikyuu = maze
kumikyoku = (musical) suite
So I guess that's what they derived the cart's title from. "Maze song".  :)

On the NES it is "Milon's Secret Castle".



Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: satoshi_matrix on December 29, 2007, 10:36:51 PM
Ahh thanks. I was so sure that "Maze Song" was one of those crazy chinese multicart names like Mario Bros. being called "Pipeline"

Thanks you guys.

I love this game, but I can't figure out what its called. I've looked  up "The New Type", "New Type", "New Human" and a whole bunch of other things, but I can't seem to figure it out. I hope you guys can help!

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: kite200 on January 02, 2008, 11:56:29 PM
I dunno what the first one is but the second screen says go moku which is a shortened form of

五目並べ
gomokunarabe

which means line up five


in korean it's omok and in chinese it's 五子棋 wuziqi

Post by: UglyJoe on January 03, 2008, 12:10:55 AM
I got the first one in about 10 seconds with Google...

新人類 - The New Type
Shin Jinrui - The New Type
released for the NES as Adventures of Dino Riki (this tidbit is missing from FW's cart listing  :o)

(the kanji translate roughly into "The New Type", btw)


Title: Re: Game Identification

Nice, I have that game too, but never had the interest to look anything about it on the internets.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: satoshi_matrix on January 03, 2008, 12:22:41 AM
Thank you both. It's so great you guys are always willing to help out  :)

I'm working on a full cover for my best multicart that I got from one of you guys (I think it was you uglyjoe?), the 110 in 1, which has about 90ish games and then a few "super" versions. For the cover, I've decided to place the title screen logos of each game so I know what games are on it at a glance. Problem is for some of the games the title screens are completely missing (common for pirates) or written in kanji like here. In order for me to get a screeshot of the game, I need to look the rom up and take a shot of the title. This is why I ask for your help. With these two games I now have a complete list of all games on the cart, so in show thanks for your help, I'll post the completed custom cover when it's finished in the "show your stash" thread.

Once again, thanks guys. Couldn't do it without you.

because one of the cassette line games was gomokunarabe

Need the katakana for a few more covers: I've bought these off ebay and they haven't arrived yet, so I'm at a disatvantage of reading the cart labels yet  ::)

Astroboy (I know the title translates Tetsuwan Atomu, but I specifically want to write out astroboy in katakana. I wrote it as アサタロボイ which I'm pretty sure is wrong  :'()
Castle Exellent
Challenger
Championship Lode Runner
Dragon Spirit
Field Combat
Gargoyle's Quest II (looking for the katakana of this, not the Red err....something whatever its called)
Rainbow Islands
Tiger-Heli
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Top Gun

As a side note, can I get a traslation for Nazo no Kabe? that game's so wierd I'd like to attempt to understand its title at least


Many thanks in advance.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: kite200 on January 05, 2008, 03:24:25 AM
Powers out and I'm on my phone so the katakana will have to wait
but, nazo no kabe means wall of mystery or mystery of the wall
substitute mystery with riddle if you want


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: satoshi_matrix on January 05, 2008, 04:39:30 AM
ah thanks kite. Wow your power's out and you still help me! What a guy ;D


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on January 05, 2008, 10:23:49 AM
So you want the katakana to your titles down there (regardless of the original Japanese title)?
Here you go! :D

Astroboy -> アストロボーイ
Castle Exellent -> カースルエクセレント
Challenger-> チャレンジャー
Championship Lode Runner -> チャンピオンシップロードランナー
Dragon Spirit -> ドラゴンスピリット
Field Combat -> フィールドコンバット
Gargoyle's Quest II -> ガーゴイルズクエストII
Rainbow Islands -> レインボーアイランド
Tiger-Heli -> タイガーヘリ
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles -> ティーンエイジ・ミュータント・ヒーロー・タートルズ
Top Gun -> トップガン

Nazo no Kabe?
I'd translate it as "Wall of Riddles".
I personally also wouldn't say mystery, because it has a bit different meaning. Mystery is "shinpi" (神秘) in Japanese. What we call occultism in the West is derived from there and called shinpigaku (神秘学) in Japanese.

@kite: It can't be "mystery of the wall" , simply because of the difference in syntax.
riddle of the wall would be the other way round: kabe no nazo


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: kite200 on January 05, 2008, 06:01:23 PM
good point I should have remembered the game nazo no murasamejou when translating this one.

Anyway power is still out


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: satoshi_matrix on January 05, 2008, 06:33:08 PM
Browsing through the back pages of this thread, I discovered something

this game looks extremely interesting.

What's the title? is it a hack? is it for the Famicom or Disk System?

Youkai Douchuuki T-> The Travel Journal of Ghosts

Notes: 
I know the second Batman game on the Famicom is called Dynamite Batman, but that really doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. The Rockman subtitles I'm looking for the correct herigana or katakana, not direct to-japanese versions of what I listed in English.

I'm afraid that's a clumsy and false translation. I personally would translate it to "Gegege no Kitaro u- Demon World" (Gegege no Kitarou is the name of the main character and it can't be translated without making it sound awful)
Getsufuu Maden げつふうまでん

Shoot the incarnation of evil, the Dragon King, with the arrow of justice!!

The monsters are waiting in a cave veiled in darkness...
Kill the Dragon King and regain the sword of Good and Evil!!

☆The far-off Dragon Mountain. A journey of difficult battles begins from there.

☆Finally it's the showdown with the Dragon! Aim for his red glowing weak point!!

A rough translation, very near to the original.
I hope you like it.

Hey Manuel, hopefully you can help me id and translate this.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=230110667351&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=013

I want to buy a copy of Super Famicom Wars, but the seller either cant or wont tell me anything beyond what he posted. I'm wondering if you can translate what the cart says and tell me: does this have to do with the steleview (thus making this the demo, BS Famicom Wars)?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on January 22, 2008, 01:50:13 AM
It's just katakana.  Says "SF Memory Cassette", and also "Super Famicom" (in the upper-right).

From what I can see, it looks like you would just download games to the cart or have Nintendo Power do it somehow (mail order or mall kiosks or something).  I can find no relation between this and the Satelaview.  I think it would work just fine, but I can't guarantee it.

The page for the memory cassette dealy is archived here:

http://web.archive.org/web/20061010204429/http://www.nintendo.co.jp/n03/index.html (http://web.archive.org/web/20061010204429/http://www.nintendo.co.jp/n03/index.html)

The page for SFW is here:

The cart looks like the same thing as SHVC-41 (look for it here (http://maru-chang.com/hard/shvc/english.htm)), which is what I'm basing my assumption off of.

I'm wondering if I could get a translation of the kanji on the box of the Famicom Light Gun I bought. I'm cerious of the japanese also call it a zapper. I dont' think so, because the katakana says "gun"

The picture of the box can be found in the "At last! Famicom Light Gun!" thread.

I might. I'm not really sure. I was really bummed that the Lum no Wedding Bell (the Urusei Yatsura one in the middle) and quite possibly the Donald McDonald (McDonalds one) are boots. Still, the games are at least what I wanted, though I do want their originals someday.

Most video Mahjong games use a two-player variant of actual Mahjong (4-player) rules.  The best site I've found that explains the two-player version is here:

http://mahjonginmame.nm.ru/howto.htm (http://mahjonginmame.nm.ru/howto.htm)
http://mahjonginmame.nm.ru/specialrules.htm (http://mahjonginmame.nm.ru/specialrules.htm)

(that link is fine, but other pages on that site may be NSFW, since most arcade mahjong games involve anime girls undressing)

Hi all, I'm a new face here. :)

I have a yellow slightly larger and rounder Famicom collection cartridge that has about +600 games, though most of they are just different levels and not individual games. Games like Super Mario, Tennis, Pacman, Popeye, Tetris, Tiny Tank, Adventure Island, Contra, Flappy and Pooyan. It's on our summer cottage so I don't know exactly, and I think it might not work because of cold, damp and age.

Anyone have idea what it might be and what games it contains. I have googled and downloaded a good amount of games but only a few seem to be from it, and there's hundreads to go. I'd love to have all those old games.

I remember these now:
-Elephant jumping on trampolines in some sort of circus. Found it, Mappy
-Black ninja jumping up desert mountains avoiding red ninjas. Yep, Ninja Kun
-Two boys punching each other until other drops into sewer. Urban Champion
-Pong, where I fight against big head in last mission. Yep, arkanoid, 1st.
-Islands surrounded by water and gameplay is something bethween of dig dug and bomberman. Woops, it was dig dug 2  ::)

Still unknown, remembered couple more.

-Rat in brown levels, isn't spelunker. It was nothing like the game I mean. The game I mean is more puzzle style.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on February 08, 2008, 05:27:42 PM

That would be Urban Champion.

Welcome!

Small rat, probably not, but Spelunker? You're not digging, but going through a cave, but when you say brown, it's the first thing I think of.
Pong vs big Head -- Arkanoid? (or Arkanoid 2)
Island Dig Dug -- Dig Dug 2?

I know this game is the japanese version of crash and the boys, but since this is a pirate and has something written in chinese followed by a II I was wondering if there may be a difference between this and the normal game. probably not?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: michaelthegreat on February 23, 2008, 03:44:10 AM
I wonder if they just thought the victory symbol meant 2? Perhaps it's because "crash and the boys"/"Surprise! Hot Blooded New Record! The Distant Gold Medal" seems like  a sequal to "Hot Blooded Marching Anthem: Go Go! Big Athletic Meet". I guess that could be it too. Of course it could be completely random. It could say something like mario sports II...

Thanks. We have Bishoujo Control on the list, not Tenshitachi no Houkago, from what I'm seeing...can you add it to what you're doing?

"Tenshitachi no Houkago - Mimi Pro - Unlicensed - AKA: After School Angels"  -- I guess.

EDIT: Bishoujo Control is shown as published by Sezon. That needs to be Wild. By chance is "Sezon" Japanese or something for "Wild"?

Hello everyone! I've just started my Famicom collection with this little beauty (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Nintendo-NES-Famicom-Console-8-Games-Lot-EX-EX_W0QQitemZ130213141594QQcategoryZ3617QQcmdZViewItem) of a bundle. The seller doesn't seem to know much about the Famicom but from what they have said I think it's an older, possibly original model as it has hard-wired pads, one of which has a mic instead of start / select buttons.

(http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/6/9/9/9/0/5/webimg/123162051_o.jpg)

There are eight games with this bundle and the only ones the seller identified specifically are Dig Dug and Lode Runner. I think I can see the main character from Dig Dug on the upper right cart, the one below that looks like it might say Lode Runner, though the resolution is quite poor and it's difficult to make out. There's also what looks to be a baseball game (bottom left) and a mahjong game (opposite the baseball one). The others are a mystery though - the one with what looks like a couple talking in hushed tones is particularly intruiging. The one with the cartoon frog (left hand side) looks really familiar but I can't remember where I've seen those characters before. Could anyone here shed some light on what these are? Thanks in advance to anyone kind enough to help :)


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on April 13, 2008, 11:09:51 PM
Your guesses look right to me.  The bottom two games are " Kyuukyoku Harikiri Stadium '88" (another baseball game you'll probably never play  ;D) and Portopia Renzoku Satsujin Jiken (http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/nes/data/578259.html).  The green one on the left  is Ninja Jajamaru-kun (http://cgi.ebay.com/RARE-Japan-Famicom-NES-NINJA-JAJA-MARU-Loose_W0QQitemZ120240390498QQihZ002QQcategoryZ62053QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1638Q2em118Q2el1247).  I'm nearly positive the upper-left game is Famista '90 (http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/nes/image/579528.html) (yet another baseball game).

It's Igo-Shinan '92  :P

It's a game that's supposed to teach you how to play Go (but doesn't actually let you play a full game of Go...).

Well I knew the title but didn't really know what the game is about.

Also what is go?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: nurd on April 21, 2008, 12:38:24 AM
It's this board game or something, little black or white circles.

I dont really know wha tit is, either.

Is it like reversi?


Title: Re: Game Identification

Wikipedia's explanation is as good as any:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_%28board_game%29 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_%28board_game%29)

But, no, Go is nothing like Reversi.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on April 21, 2008, 10:17:38 AM
As UglyJoe said, it's nothing like Reversi.
Go is said to be the most complex board game in the world, even more complex than chess.

Trying Wikipedia first to find out about stuff isn't THAT BAD an idea... ;)


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: michaelthegreat on April 21, 2008, 05:36:18 PM
I know it's not like reversie, but for someone who's never played go, reversie is the closest example. Rather than saying it's nothing like reversie, I think it would help more to say it's like reversie where the stones you capture dissapear rather than flip and you have to surround stones to capture them. Yes, it's more complex than just that, but that's what it basically is...

Hello, everybody.

I need some help identifying some famicom games:

First, I posted some pics above, and Manuel was very helpful to me in identifying most of the games.  However, there were a few he identified that I could not find on the master list.  Can anyone tell me what the following games are (and by what name  they are listed on the master list):

Pic 1

Pic 2
(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x162/Bibliophile007/IMG_1888.jpg)

Second, I have the following games which I have not previously asked about.  Can anyone tell me what the following games are (and by what name  they are listed on the master list):

Pic 3
(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x162/Bibliophile007/IMG_1883.jpg)

Third, I have the following Dragonball games.  However, there are so many DragonBall and DragonBall Z games on the master list that I am not sure which ones these are.  Can anyone tell me what the following DragonBall games are (and by what name  they are listed on the master list):

Pic 4
(http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x162/Bibliophile007/IMG_1881.jpg)

Lastly, I have one game which says on it "PeachBoy Legend."  However, I don't see it on the master list, which means it is probably listed by a different name.  Does anyone know under what name it is listed:

One hint: Try to search (search function in your browser) the game list with the titles I gave you.
E.g. the first one on pic 1 I had as "Eiyuu Senki". Search that and you'll get "SD Gundam Gachapon Senshi 3: Eiyuu Senki" from the list. Peach Boy can be found, too.

Pic 1: SD Gundam Gachapon Senshi 3: Eiyuu Senki / Home Run Night

       Balubalouk no Densetsu yori Aigina no Yogen (From the Legend of Balubalouk Aigina no Yogen)
Pic 3: Yossy no Cookie (Yoshi's Coockie) / Valkyrie no Bouken: Toki no Kagi Densetsu

Just to make sure I am complying with forum expectations, if I have Super Famicom games I need identified, should I post pics of them here or in the "other gaming" forum?  I am still quite new here, so I want to follow the guidelines.

封神榜 (fēngshnbǎng : "sealed god list" ...  ??? I'm not so sure here. I'm quite good at Japanese, but not so much at Chinese)
Looks the same as UglyJoe said, though.
There's only one difference:
In the auction the game's subtitle says 加强版 (jiāqingbǎn = "strengthened version"  ??? ), whereas the game in the blog UglyJoe mentioned has it as 格斗版 (gdubǎn = "fighting version"  ??? ).

Myth Struggle

"sealed god list"

I think I'll go with Myth Struggle on my pirate originals list.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on May 04, 2008, 09:23:52 PM

Of course mine was only a "word per hanzi" translation. Myth Struggle is a stupid name, but it seems the pirates themselves translated their game that way.
Maybe you should also add the Chinese pronunciation so that people eventually could find it.

Google translates it "people see the stars". Since it's an rpg that's untranslated, I've not paid much attention to it. I think it's a giant robot supernatural space rpg if you want more catagories to put it in...  :)

Hello Everyone!

I have just remembered the good old times when i owned a Famicom.
I don't know if it was a special one, but it had built-in games like Contra, Tetris, Dr. Mario, Nuts & Milk , Super Mario, Bomberman, Arkanoid /Can't remember anything else :( /. I recall that a yellow knight was on the title screen when i had to choose a game. The fonts were red. If someone knows a place, where a list of these games are, please tell me, or if you own such a Famicom, please write down the title of the games.

Welcome. It'd be kinda hard to identify a specific system or the games on a system, I'd imagine. Maybe you'll get lucky and someone here will have owned that.

I think I've posted a couple of these before, but I want to be sure they're included on our game list.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: TankeRka on June 16, 2008, 11:29:10 AM
Yes JC , i hope so! :)

Oh and another game's details have appeared before my eyes.
It was a platform game, where you could choose between a few "robot"s /i don't know what they were :S/, but what i'm sure is that they each had a different power bar, and you could drain one "robot"'s power bar to give it to another one. Maybe it had to do something with a thing like a Greek statue at the title screen, but i don't really know :S. Eh it was 10 years ago it's hard to remember. :D

Whiele I am there however, could someone give me the names of these carts? I still have no idea which games these are.

Upper left is Hino no Tori and I have a pirate disk that has the same image as the bottom right, so I think it's Adventure Island, since that's what's on my disk. Could be wrong on that last one, though. In fact, my disk version has Game Doctor written on it and the levels are different than the official version, not to mention it's really glitchy. The other two, I have no idea  :P

well here's what I get from the first pic, my nihongo is very rusty though...

the top of the turtle thing just says "Disk System"

the large characters on the book item say "Control", I don't know the kanji part above it (although the last character usually means "woman" or "girl")


second pic

top left: first line too small but the bottom line is Sutajiokatto - Stage Cart?

top right: Quiz... something... Olympic... Watanabe Wataru?

bottom left: top line I don't know, bottom row "Moving School"

bottom right: this is actually a larger version of the top line to the top right... "Quiz ??? Olympic"

A while ago I bought this Famicom Disk game lot on ebay and this game came in the lot. The game is written on a Zelda 2 disk so I don't know how the label looks like. The game looks so random and weird and I don't understand most of it. The game was made by Sunsoft and it seems to have 6 different games on it. I only understand the first two games but the other games are completely in japanese and seem to be text games. I looked in the Disk game list on Famicom World to maybe find what the title could be, and judging by the title screen and the game list would the game be ''Nazoler Land Dai 2 Gou'' ? I took some pics of the title screen and games;

Title screen and game selection menu;

In the first game you need to flip tiles vertically and horizontally so all the tiles match with the same colour. Pretty hard game actually;

In this game your a school girl who needs to bomb your way down through platforms to reach the goal ???

This is some kind of a quiz game. It has a 3 and 4 player option so I guess you'd need to add some kind of multi tap adapter in the ext. plug of the Famicom if you want to add two extra controllers.

Some kind of a text game;
(http://img128.imageshack.us/img128/1566/dscn1920rv4.jpg)   (http://img128.imageshack.us/img128/720/dscn1921lv1.jpg)

This game doesn't make any sense to me at all.

Judging from the ''BOX'' title and the fact that the girl reads letters I guess this some kind of a News letter game. Looks really interesting and probably has the best music in the whole game but I don't understand a single word in this game  :-[
(http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/4826/dscn1927ob4.jpg)   (http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/1372/dscn1928oc4.jpg)

Does anyone else own that game? And is there some kind of story that links to all the games? I really would like to know more about this game so any information would be appreciated. ;)

Yeah I looked at famicom disk system roms and found the game rom; it's definitely ''Nazoler Land Dai 2 Gou''. I also downloaded its sequels and they're just as weird and goofy as this one. They even feature some of the same characters in some games like the school girl for example but in a platform game instead. :P

Taiwan seems like a good place to get such stuff. I SOOOOO want to travel there in the near future.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on August 20, 2008, 06:36:38 AM
One of the big misconceptions I've had and most people have is that pirates come primarily out of Hong Kong and mainland China. But, during the late 80s and early 90s, most came from Taiwan. And, most of the ports and originals were developed in Taiwan. During the late 90s to now, mainland China has taken the lead in developing Famicom games. Hong Kong was big in pirate disks.

After working on it for months, I finally have a contact in Taiwan who's gonna help me buy stuff. I might get the linked copy, or I might see if my contact can find it cheaper. It's kinda common, from what I've seen.

Doki Doki Panic for 500 Taiwan Dollar? That's like 16 US$...

Just a little question. How do you find a contact in Taiwan? On other boards?
I also know 2 women in Taiwan (studied together in Fukuoka), but they aren't into gaming, so I can't ask help from them.

Doki Doki Panic for 500 Taiwan Dollar? That's like 16 US$...

You sure about that price? I thought it was closer to $70USD. It's in Chinese Yuan.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on August 20, 2008, 10:52:24 PM
When it is Chinese Yuan, then that's more like the price you said.

I wonder why a Taiwanese site would use mainland Chinese Yuan, though.

Both Chinese and Taiwanese currencies are referred to as "yuan" (元).
I haven't read through the site's policy, but at first sight I assumed it would be Taiwanese Yuan.
But if your Taiwanese contact said it's Chinese Yuan and he doesn't just try to rip you off ( ;D ...  :P), then probably what he says is right.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on August 21, 2008, 02:13:20 AM
If you get a chance, could you confirm which it is. I'd need to know because it would shape my purchases. $16 is vastly different from $70.

Read a bit about it HERE (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Taiwan_dollar), but obviously no eBay confirmation. Your logic makes sense: Why would they use Chinese conversion rates?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: manuel on August 21, 2008, 05:29:20 AM
I just checked another product. An EEEPC, which usually costs between 400 and 600$ depending on configuration.

http://goods.ruten.com.tw/item/show?11080816683675 (http://goods.ruten.com.tw/item/show?11080816683675)

The seller wants 15000 Yuan for it. In Taiwan Dollars that would be 477 US$. If it's mainland Chinese Yuan that would make it nearly 2200 US$. This makes me believe that's it's truly Taiwan Dollars we're talking about.
So it seems you're lucky. That copy of Dokidoki Panick should only be around 16 US$.

Ask your contact, he will most likely tell you the same.

I have a game by that same name on a multi-cart and mine's the same as Roger Rabbit for the famicom, also known as Bugs Bunny's Crazy Castle for the NES. Check out vids of Crazy Castle on Youtube and see if your game looks the same. The Famicom version has Roger Rabbit in place of Bugs and the pursuers are different characters, too.

Ah nice...reminds me of Sweet Home from those screenshots.

I found a rom of it.  It's a standard RPG, from what I can tell.  I couldn't get out of the first town (guards blocked the exit....talking to everyone did nothing).  You can see those huge kanji at the bottom of one of the screenshots.  That's how they do text boxes, really big kanji scrolling along the bottom.  That's probably the most unique thing about it.

I saw this auction too and I never heard of Supertone before.  At first, I was unsure if it's was an unlicensed title but the label was too well made to be a pirate. It uses the same mapper as a C&E unlicensed RPG title. The type of case if the same as TXC/Micro-Genius famicom releases.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on September 14, 2008, 08:53:31 PM
Seeing that it's S-01 and you've never seen it before, that might suggest Supertone had one and only one release, maybe an offshoot of C&E. Seems most of these companies had contact with one another and shared and stole from one another, so the borrowed cart casing, etc., doesn't strike me as unusual.

Weird, it even has the notch commonly found on Genesis carts.
If someone had the same bedsheets as the seller, s/he could measure them and we could know the cart's width x height and solve this mystery ::)

Family Computer 1983 - 1994 only mentions a disk version.

Which reminds me, I can tell from the index of the book which games got officially released on a disk and a cart.  Have we compiled this already?

I found a rom of the DBZ 5 game.  The gameplay proves it's a pirate (not to mention the fact that the game's dialog is in Chinese :P).  The graphics are pretty good though.  I'd bet that most of them are lifted from the other (legit) DBZ games.

The second one is Rollergames.  Doesn't look like it ever had a Japanese release, so I guess that makes it special.

It's Doraemon.  If you let the game sit at the title screen for a while, it'll show you that exact screen.

Can you tell me the official name of this game ?

A race that contains 2 cars....the screen is divided into 2 parts consentarting on the car that is wining.....when the 2 cars are on the same point the screen is not divided....I think the 1st player car is red,,,,and I think the game is made by Konami.

It would be better if you inseret a picture of the cart !

Couldn't find the old post so I just throw:

I tested my Famicom at our cottage, but couldn't get it to work at all.  I did notice that the yellow cartridge was supposed to have 765 games.

Through a Youtube video I was able to regonize many of my old games, but I believe there are still some left. One was a 4 (or 3 or 5 or 6) in a row style game with yellowish board and white and black buttons. Another one was a fighting game with a castle, a knight and some knight or monster.

Any help?

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on October 23, 2008, 02:36:12 AM
First one is Sangokushi II: Haou no Tairiku.  (it's Namco, btw)

The next two are a Yuu Yuu Hakusho game and a DBZ game. 

The title screen for the Yuu Yuu Hakusho is pretty different from the Datach game.  But, the Datach game is the only official Yuu Yuu Hakusho game for the Famicom.  So, from the title screen alone, I dunno if it's just a title screen hack or if it's a different game altogether.

The DBZ screenshot is a hack of the Datach DBZ game title screen.  The copyright info has been removed.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on October 23, 2008, 02:45:53 AM
Thanks. I'm confident that the Yuu Yuu Hakusho game is, in fact, the Datach game. Because after I select the game it shows a half-removed "Datach." I was hoping it was a unique game, but I guess not. Oh well, to the sale bin both carts go...

BTW: I was confident Sangokushi II: Haou no Tairiku was Koei, but perhaps I was mistranslating the title of Koei game.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on October 23, 2008, 03:26:18 AM
There are two series of games for the Famicom based on Sangokushi (Romance of the Three Kingdoms).  One is by Koei and one is by Namco.  So, there are two games called Sangokushi II.  The one with the subtitle following it is the Namco version.

The label is a rip of the Flying Warriors (NES) box art:

It might be the same game too (don't have time to verify right now).

Based on the screenshot, I'd say it's the same game:

http://www.mobygames.com/game/nes/flying-warriors/screenshots (http://www.mobygames.com/game/nes/flying-warriors/screenshots)

Looks like another one for the "NES-exclusive games ported over to Famicom" list.

Does anyone know what the Famicom version of Kid Klown (NES) is called? Wikipedia says it's called: Mickey Mouse III: Dream Balloon for the Japanese Famicom release, but a Google search for that title doesn't reveal much. 

Anyone own it?

Any chance there is a Mario hack of it?

From the Youtube video of the NES version I watched, it looks like a good candidate for a Mario hack.

I was hoping it was an original, since it had a copyright with a unique company name. I'm also surprised by the date on it -- 1987 -- which might be one of the earliest hacks.


Title: Re: Game Identification

I wonder if 1987 is just an artifact from the original game and not the date of the hack.

Hello, this is my first post here. I came across a bunch of Famicom games at a thrift store and purchased them all. If anyone can help me identify some of these games that would be greatly appreciated. Also if someone can give me an idea of the value of some of these games (if any). that would be great too. I'm new to Famicom so thanks for the help.

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: firebrand26 on November 20, 2008, 12:11:55 AM
Thank you. They were selling these games for $3 a piece and a Famicom and Disk Sytstem (Disk system with the box) for $20). I offered $50 for everything. Unfortunately, they couldn't find the power supply for the Famicom so I can't test it out. It's not in very good shape cosmetically. The DIsk system looks good but doesn't seem to power up. Can it power up on it's own or does it need to be connected to the Famicom to do so (the light doesn't go on when I plug it in and turn it on)? I'm thinking about returning the systems and getting the $20 back and possibly selling the games (since I currently can't play them).



Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: turbo D on November 20, 2008, 06:05:01 AM
The disk system does need to be connected to the famicom to see the led light up. Btw, if you decide to return the famicom and disk system to get the $20 back, would you mind just selling it to me?  :)


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: FamicomFreak on November 20, 2008, 06:41:44 PM
Great finds but if you want to get more for your money you can try and sell the disk system on this forum. There are a lot of people interested as you can see.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: firebrand26 on November 23, 2008, 02:56:00 PM
Well I doubt the Famicom unit itself works any longer. The guy in the store told me that I could use a regular NES AC Adapter with the unit, which I foolishly tried without doing any research beforehand. It didn't seem to power up and I thought I shut it off immediately, but a few minutes later smoke started emitting from the unit so I imagine it is now shot. I was unable to test out the disk system but they did tell me that they tested it. Unfortunately, despite this recommendation, the store refuses to take the Famicom unit back. Is the part that could have been damaged easily repairable or is the entire unit basically shot?

If anyone is willing to purchase the damaged Famicom unit, a Disk system that has not been tested by me and the games I might be willing to do this. But I'm not necessarily comfortable with selling something that may not work. I will be busy the next few days, so I won't be able to discuss this at the moment. I don't necessarily want a big profit from any of this. If someone wants this stuff I would work out something reasonable, but give me a few days.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: ericj on November 23, 2008, 07:46:41 PM
If you wanted to try to fix it, you would probably need to replace, at a minimum, the voltage regulator, capacitor, fuse, and perhaps a resistor or two. If you feel comfortable taking it apart and posting pics, I'm sure you could find help on here. If not, I may be interested in the lot. I've been wanting to get a stand-alone FDS.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: 133MHz on November 24, 2008, 12:30:01 AM
If the seller gave you that hideously incorrect piece of advice (NES AC with Famicom), then he should take full responsibility for it and replace your Famicom or give you a refund.

the artwork and title come from "Bouken Roman", aka "Dota" which was released on various computers - a famicom version was planned but supposedly never came out. (it's mentioned on this page (http://osaka.cool.ne.jp/berabo/mihatubai.htm),  you can see the artwork in question on a flyer here (http://osaka.cool.ne.jp/berabo/ROMAN2.JPG)). i'd be very interested to know just what's on that pirate cart - it's probably just some other game mislabelled, but maybe (maybe) it's time diver all over again...

(Pokemon) Blue = Chiki Chiki Machine Mou Race
(Pokemon) Green = Kerokerokeroppi no Daibouken 2
Pokemon (Red) 2000 = Felix the Cat
(Pokemon Yellow) = Tiny Toon Adventures
Pokemon 2000 = Mitsume Ga Tooru
Pokemon Silver = Little Nemo

I think I've got those mostly right.

There is no English version, but the title translates to something like "Anpanman!  Let's Go Hiking!"

Anpanman is a famous kids' show in Japan. The main characters are all sorts of sweet bread.  :D

Even in Japanese it's a weird title.  ;)

It's not his catch phrase.  He's a baker and he wants to make a Japanese national bread akin to French Bread, Italian Bread, etc.  The Japanese call bread "pan", so he calls his bread Ja-pan.  The manga is loaded with puns, and this is no exception ;)

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: nintendodork on March 22, 2009, 05:15:31 AM
Looks like a controller that would be packed in with a Famiclone of some kind.  Some companies make ports for controllers weird so people can't play with other controllers.  Do you have any Famiclones?  Where did you get the controller?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Rcoehrs on March 22, 2009, 05:17:34 AM
I don't have a famiclone. It was bought loose at a ALLIED [A secondhand record shop], They got alot of the usual stuff, this is the first real rare thing I ever found besides a Famicom. I would figure if it was a Famiclone controller it would have the same ports as a famicom or NES. any thoughts?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: nintendodork on March 22, 2009, 05:19:38 AM
Like I said..
Some companies make ports for controllers weird so people can't play with other controllers.
It's actually pretty common.  Most Console-in-controller clones have weird ports like that.  But console clones can have it too.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Rcoehrs on March 22, 2009, 05:33:21 AM
Oh I see, You meant the famiclone companies make the ports different so they can't be played with other ones.
That's really kinda odd, One would figure they would try to make it look as much like the orginal, if not only to confuse but also to make it more useable in general .  Well now that I know what it is [in a way] I have no idea what to do with it. lol


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: nintendodork on March 22, 2009, 05:37:18 AM
It could be to improve sales.  If you have whatever clone that controller goes to, and a friend comes over to play...and you only have one controller, it forces your friend to buy the same clone in order to get the controller.  It could also be because of financial limitations.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: 133MHz on March 22, 2009, 06:36:08 AM
Actually, most pirate clones follow some kind of standard. That DB-9 controller is interchangeable with almost every Famicom clone. A minority of clones use a DB-15 connector much like the Famicom's expansion port, but in the pirate world the DB-9 connector is the most common.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Rcoehrs on March 22, 2009, 10:20:10 AM

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: nintendodork on March 26, 2009, 12:00:28 AM
Different companies can share one controller design, you know.  This controller is definitely not exclusive to a certain Famiclone


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: 133MHz on March 26, 2009, 01:19:27 AM
In fact there are only two Famiclone controller 'standards': DB-9 and DB-15.
DB-9 is present in the vast majority of them, and DB-15 in a small minority.

Don't get me started on gamefaqs!

Maybe someone was just messing around -- not a widespread hack. Looks kinda dumb anyway -- just a main character hacks.

How about this one -- Dragon Knife? The title screen looks crappy enough for it to be an unlicensed original or hack:

What's the game where you're in a single square room, looking from above, and you walk around shooting enemies that come out of the corners until a little item appear that you get and it activates a warp in the center of the room taking you to the next level?

And what game is one where your little character walks from one end to the other, sometimes by climbing ladders, and avoides enemies? It's one of the common multicart games.

EDIT: First one's Warpman, just stumbled across it on another multi. The second on is kinda like The Goonies, only a bit more rudimentary.

Awesome! I've got that same game on a multicart but with Pikachu sprites and no title screen, and I always wondered what the real game was.

And what game is one where your little character walks from one end to the other, sometimes by climbing ladders, and avoides enemies? It's one of the common multicart games.

I know a lot of multicart games but I can't recall that one. Do you have a screenshot?

Post by: JC on May 23, 2009, 03:38:37 AM
Yeah, I asked because I've got the Pikachu one, too. I couldn't figure out the game. And I don't have a screen of the other one. Don't want to take a pic and my little bro took the stuff I need to hook up my Fami to my PC.

I always wondered if that was an unlicensed title. It was hard to tell from the screenshots I had. It plays exactly like Max 2 from Sachen's Poker II / Super Cartridge Ver. 2. Do you know if Jichang/Fortune Power made any other game for the famicom?


Title: Re: Game Identification

I've never seen any that look to be from those two companies, but I'm still pretty new to some of this stuff and the newer of the Chinese originals are tough to follow since they were produced so quickly from similar engines.

This one is unfamiliar, but it looks a lot like it has something to do with Dr. Mario.

In the meantime, I was gonna see if the konami titles more specifically, other than ganbare pennant race (good game, btw) could be identified. I can point out Mighty Bomb Jack, Arkanoid 2, and some others as well. What are some of the real gems in this? I have the intention of selling probably half of this lot, and keep half of it for my famicom collection. Thanks in advance guys!

There's a couple of games for it.  They're small cartridges that plug into the Datach unit (which is plugged into the FC).  The barcode reader is used to, well, read barcodes.  The games read the barcode data and use it to enhance character stats or whatever. 

This was actually a pretty big deal in Japan at the time (not necessarily the Datach reader, but other barcode-reader toys).  There were books and everything that would say which products' barcodes worked the best.  Similar toys were released in the US, but it never really caught on.

It was a game that involved monsters
The Japanese release had red blood on the title screen, and the American version was changed to green (I think)
One of the versions was missing half of the first level.

What is this game?

Post by: UglyJoe on August 23, 2009, 04:02:28 AM
Monster Party

I don't believe the Japanese version was ever released.

Ah, I think it was the European version, instead of the Japanese version...maybe.

Actually, the red blood comes from a prototype for the Famicom.

Title: Re: Game Identification

Namcot #9 is Battle City.

Irem #6 is Spelunker II and it does have the LED:

Cool. Thanks. I don't have those two. And that means Spelunker II is the last to have the LED's. Wonder why they stopped putting them on the carts. I know the cart design changed soon after #6 but they still used it for some games.


Title: Re: Game Identification

My theory: Since the LED served no really important purpose they just left it out to cut costs a tiny bit.

You can't tell just by looking at the title on a cart. ::)  The game may have nothing to do with Toy Story.  I believe there was a hack of a different game (not SMB) called Toy Story, though.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: JC on September 21, 2009, 12:36:33 AM
That's a Bio Miracle hack with Shin-chan, not Mario. Toy Story on that multicart is likely nothing at all, just the name on the label, but there's a Toy Story original and a Mario Bros. with Woody, I think.

Don't count on it. I have tons of multis with a label featuring SMW but it's always the original SMB. Plus those type of labels are usually the worst pirate multis because they only have 5-6 different titles on them.


Also, is "Golden Axe 4" generally on multis the actual port of Golden Axe or just a dumb hack of something?

Not sure if we're talking about the same game because I've never seen Golden Axe 4 on multis (and I have more than a hundred of them) but I have it as a single cartridge and it's a hack of Astyanax. Aladdin return of Jafar is also a hack of Astyanax. Pirates like to hack this game it seems.

There are so many sites out there today with this thing called the internet...I usually just type in the model numbers of the games I cant verify by words....Then there is always one or two sites with a list for all the games made.....

Well, there's proof directly above you on why that doesn't always work.  Pirates are very strange, and sometimes don't make any sense at all.

Edit* Plus, there is not a single list on the internet that will provide you with every single pirated game made, since they're still being made, and some from the last two or three decades still haven't been discovered.

Hi, I've got a couple FC games which need identifying and a few Disk System games which only have writing on them, no proper labels.  I don't know if these could be protos or anything but since I can't read the labels and don't have a disk system at the moment I can't test them.  Can anyone identify / translate these games?

FC Game 1:

Title: Re: Game Identification

The first one is the best, but it's an adventure game (meaning it's unplayable if you can't read Japanese):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpPVFtg9JMc (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpPVFtg9JMc)

Sword of Kalin is a mediocre RPG (Japanese would help, but you could probably get through it using the guide on GameFAQs).

Koneko Monogatari is a platformer.  You don't need to know Japanese and the graphics are pretty.  It's kinda slow, though.

I have the first disk but I thought it was called Famicom Tentei Part II. And did you pull those names from your memory?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on March 10, 2010, 09:52:25 PM
Famicom Tentei is a shorter way of saying the series' name.  There's two games (original and Part II) and both games have two halves (zenpan and kouhen).  I actually got it wrong, he has Zenpan and not Kouhen.  So, he's got the first half of the second game in the series.

And, no, I didn't know these from memory (except for Gyromite / Robot Gyro).

Hello everyone!
I am new to here.
I knocked into this site accidentally when I was searching for a FDS game for almost half a year but yielded no fruits so far.
The game was kind of a strategy game. With four tribes resembling four natural elements for you to choose from, namely hill, sand, forest and sea. Those four tribes are represented by Japanese Kanji characters, 森, 山, 水, and 砂. Before entering into a battle, there is a map screen divided into four parts. If I remember correctly, the upper two parts should be the domains of the hill tribe and the forest tribe, the lower two parts should be the domains of the sea tribe and the sand tribe. Right at the centre is a battlefield which belongs to none of the four tribes mentioned above.
The sea tribes move with a quick speed. The hill tribes inflict huge damage upon combat. The sand tribes specialize at throwing projectiles. The forest tribes average at all aspects.
Upon entering into a battle, it is a 3-on-3 match, in which you can control where your units move. Different tribes move at different speeds. The sea tribes can move for 7 units each time while the sand tribes can move for 2 (or 3?) units each time.
Anyone got any idea about the title of this game?
Thank you ^.^

Excellent fighting game, in which the main character defeats enemies aiming to further the end of the board. The game is an imitation three-dimensional space similar to the legendary Double Dragon and Ninja Turtles. The hero can raise the dropped knife or gun and use it against its enemies.

Title romanizes to Majabencha: Mahjong Senki.  "Majabencha" is probably supposed to be "mahjoventure" a portmanteau of "mahjong" and "adventure".

Edit: Seems to appear on ROM lists as "Majaventure: Mahjong Senki".

Hello guys
I want to ask you for help with indentifying original game names of these games/hacks, if those are original pirate games then a small info (2-3 words) on the hack and possible rarity of those.
The number 7 is a JY-010 cart, I think somebody collected those around here... is it a legit JY or just some random multicart?
I'm thankfull for every info!

1) Kamen no Ninja Hanamaru (was hacked and released as Yo! Noid in the US).
2) I think this is a pirate original (same used for Harry Potter?), but I'm not sure.
3) Argos no Senshi: Hachamecha Daishingeki (Rygar)
4) Takahashi Meijin no Boukenjima II (Adventure Island II)
5) The Lord of King (Astyanax)
6) I think this is a pirate port of the MegaDrive/Genesis game Mickey Mania, but I'm not sure.

Thanks UglyJoe! You were extremely helpfull!

Aladdin 3 is a hack of Magic Carpet 1001 by Mega Soft, it had a single cart release but its probably better known as one of the games on the Caltron 6 in 1.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: jpx72 on January 29, 2011, 08:40:30 AM
THANKS on the info on Magic Carpet 1001! I have never played Caltron6-in1 so I haven't seen this one elsewhere since now. There's tons of information on this title everywhere! Even on wikipedia :)


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Xious on January 30, 2011, 03:40:09 PM
here are two versions of 'Magic Carpet' (or at least I think it was two) on this cart as well (http://atariusa.com/flashback/displayimage.php?album=207&pos=0).

I don't recall what the copyright date or info was off-hand though. This may have come first, as it's all original games, some of which Ive never seen anywhere else, including some light-gun games, which are rare to begin with, much less for a HK/Chinese original. Surprisingly, as repetitive as it can be, 'Magic Carpet' is a fresh-looking and fun game.

The 20-Games cart also has a weird title named 'Adam & Eve' that has nothing to do with the biblical story from what I can tell, and is more like a clone of 'Baloon Fight' and a bizarre casino game.

Is there a famicom version of this with different sprites and title?  It'd be weird if this only came to the PAL region, from Konami.

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: mrdomino on January 31, 2011, 03:49:03 PM
nope, only a PAL version as far as I know. it was only published by Konami anyway, the developer (Source Research & Development) was British.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: NessPJ on February 05, 2011, 10:50:56 PM
After a lot of spoofing around, i thought i'd register to these forums and ask my question here.
'Game identification' doesn't apply entirely since what i am looking for is related to Multicarts.  :P

I saw several people on these forums here (http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?action=search2), talking about them.
Some of them even made extensive listings (http://jpx72.detailne.sk/modd_files/fc/snaps.htm) about the games that are on the cartridge... :)

So here goes....
When i was a little kid (approx. around 1993) my dad took me by suprise and we went to see this man which modded my NES!
This very man, sold us a Multicart which i recall had 360 games on it (trainers included).
It was a yellow Famicom cartridge that fitted into my PAL NES using a small black adapter.
Another noteable detail i remember was, that the menu had a guy on a dirt bike along the side in a wheelie position.

Now heres the thing...after looking at Multicart listings and youtube movies for almost 2 days...i came to a pretty interesting conclusion....
I know simply every single game i come accross!
So even though in general, most multicarts contain around 30 games with the rest of them being hacks/trainers i was thinking the multicart i used to have must have been something with above average quality.
There were so many games on there compared to the ratio i see on other carts...

Now, i must admit... a friend of mine had the pretty popular 260in1 cartridge (with the Wild Ball game ;))
and i guess i'm adding all of those games to my equation as well...

But my bottom line is....amongst everyone here who have quite the knowledge/experience on this subject.
Is there a sort of... 'standard' or 'best' multicart cartridge?
One that has the biggest collection of games? (one that has almost every, if not all of those games considered pretty rare such as:
Mighty Bomb Jack, Spelunker, Challenger and Thexder etc).

During my search i also came across a 5000 in 1 multicart (http://satoshimatrix.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/5000inone.jpg) very similar looking to the one i had.
If the cover implies anything about the content quality then i'm guessing it could be the ultimate multicart to play...
Has anyone ever come across it, or better yet...owns a dump of this cart? :)

Thanks in advance for any info and for reading my pretty extensive post. :P

Post by: kalle90 on February 08, 2011, 07:27:06 PM
Haven't been here in ages, but just remembered a game I still miss. If I remember correctly it was a fighting game set in a castle. Out of the games I've checked out Castle of Dragon looks most like it but I believe it was a 1vs1 fighting game

and now that I'm here I guess it doesn't hurt to ask if someone can fill my list. I got this 765 (I think) games in 1 cartridge with hundreds of repeats. So far I've found
Adventure Island
Adventures of Dino Riki
Antarctic Adventure
Arkanoid
Balloon Fight
Battle City
Binary Land
Bomberman
Circus Charlie
Contra
Demon World
Dig Dug 1 & 2
Donkey Kong, JR, 3
Duck Hunt
Field Combat
Flappy
Galaga
Golf
Hogans Alley
Iceclimbers
Lode Runner
Mappy
Mario Bros
Ninja Kun
Pacman
Pinball
Pooyan
Popeye
Star Force
Super Mario Bros
Tennis
Tetris
Wild Gunman

Does that list ring a bell? Anything I'm missing?

No it's not any of those. It didn't have that strong japanese style to it. It was more western medieval although I guess it could also have been a beat em up but the screen wasn't full of enemies who go down with 1 hit.

But while looking through Youtube videos atleast I found out I was still missing Wrecking Crew, one of my favorites back then

Alright, here's all I got:

- Black Standard Famicom Cartridge
- Capcom Game
- The sticker has a male anime-esque character and he might be holding some kind of cement sledge hammer

I always see it but never remember the title, and I wonder what kind of game it might be.

I know it's not a lot to go by... Anyone got any ideas?

Tatakai no Banka (Trojan) maybe?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: tappybot on February 14, 2011, 12:34:37 AM
Nope, it's not that one.  I don't think it has that old Capcom logo on the left side, just the new one, so I think it's a 90's game.

Sorry that's all I have for now.  Maybe next time I go to the store I'll bring a notepad and pen.

edit:   I swear it's Capcom, but I can't find it on any list of Capcom famicom games.  Hmm..   When I figure it out I'll post it here.

I was wrong.  It's not Capcom.. But there is some text in the Capcom classic Yellow below the title, and my subconscious registered it as Capcom XD


update:

Thought I'd just ask a question in here.

I saw Mario Bros. (Think it's just plain old Mario Bros.) on Famicom Disk System today.  Is this worth picking up or is it identical to the famicom counterpart?

Title: Re: Game Identification

I say that, but I'm not aware of the differences to be honest, it could be a plain old Mario Bros. image mounted on a recordable FDS disk for all I know, or that might not even be possible!  I'm totally unfamiliar with FDS to be honest.

So yeah, just wondering if this is particularly interesting beyond being valued for being a Mario game.
Thanks for the title L_E_T.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: The Uninvited Gremlin on March 13, 2011, 05:07:24 PM
Its basically just like original Mario Bros. and that game isn't particularly the funnest game.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: UglyJoe on March 13, 2011, 08:59:10 PM
While the core gameplay is pretty much the same as Mario Bros., it's not the exact same thing.  The graphics are improved, as well as the jumping physics.  It was also tied into a promo for Nagatanien products, so there are cut-scene ads.  It is also able to save your high score.  Some more info here:

http://www.mariowiki.com/Kaette_Kita_Mario_Bros. (http://www.mariowiki.com/Kaette_Kita_Mario_Bros.)

Definitely something I'd like to own at some point.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: tappybot on March 14, 2011, 12:06:02 PM
That sounds pretty cool.. and I actually like the classic Mario Bros.

I'm not sure which was  my first exposure to it, but I know I spent hours and hours and hours and hours and hours playing the Mario Bros. Battle in Super Mario Bros. 3 with my cousin.  Love it.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: The Uninvited Gremlin on March 14, 2011, 04:04:53 PM
I think what your talking about was my first exposure and also it was a nice tip of the hat for SMB3 to its roots Original Mario Bros.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: L___E___T on March 14, 2011, 07:53:42 PM
Same here - but the original Mario Bros is nowhere near as fun as that.  In SMB3, it's a remixed competitive mini game that has a nice risk / reward mechanic tied into it that's relevant to the core game.

Mario Bros on it's own is a strange collection of bad SFX, bad physics and bad gameplay ramps, depending on how you look at it...

Don't get me wrong, I do kinda like it - but after playing SMB3 Mario Bros it's hard to go back to the original and not feel a little uninspired.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: tappybot on March 15, 2011, 10:48:02 AM
Yeah I know it's pretty stiff and rigid compared to the SMB3 version, but I still get a kick out of playing it.  It's hard to remember, but I do recall playing it as a kid, though I'm not sure if it was before the SMB3 version.  Either way, I've kept, or maybe developed a love for it over the years.   :mario:

The first one looks very familiar, but I can't put my finger on it... The test reads "Tsubasa no Hito" ("man/woman/person with wings") if that's any help.

The second one says "Salamander - All 3 games in 1"
Subtitle: "The legendary Salamander"


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: mrdomino on March 31, 2011, 04:36:40 AM
I just noticed the second one has another label underneath - looks like someone just stuck a magazine clipping or something over whatever was there originally. So I guess theres no chance of identifying that one really. :D
(although its quite likely to be Salamander, I suppose)

My guess would be Legendary Wings, but I have no way of confirming that without screenshots.

I can't read Chinese, but I think the game with F-16 in the title is either Star Force or Sky Destroyer, the 1989 games are trained versions of other games (presumably Exerion and Galaxian) and on the whole, the list seems to consist of 1st gen Famicom games.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: mrdomino on April 01, 2011, 06:18:25 PM
yeah, from the few names i can recognise they all seem to be standard early multicart stuff. 1 is Adventure Island, 4 is SMB, 5 is "1989 Galaxian". No.31 is "Dream Bros" which I guess is that SMB with wrong mirroring, No.32 is Dream-something else though, not sure what that'd be.


Title: Re: Game Identification

Hey everyone I had a quick question, need help with a picture or knowledge of a famicom cart.

Basically a friend of mine has a zelda gaming collection and we noticed the famicom zelda cart had two dates on it.
The zelda cart he has shows dates 1986,1992 with a green color cart.

We wanted to know if this is a 'greatest hits' version of the cart or a pirate?

And if anyone here has the original zelda release cart for famicom (image of it). So that we could find one for his collection.

Thanks for any help.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: The Uninvited Gremlin on April 17, 2011, 11:33:49 PM
The original was released on Famicom Disk, it was re-released on cart and that's why it contains two dates.

Googling the name in kanji ("美少女名人戦") gets this (http://www.geocities.jp/wing_angel_777/fd_s.html).  If the Javascript redirects to a blank page, go here (http://www.geocities.jp/wing_angel_777/index.html) and click the "ファミコンDISK" link in the list on the left.

I'm guessing it's a hack of Super Mario Bros., given that the picture on the label is taken from there.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: MasterDisk on June 13, 2011, 03:26:20 PM
It's Super Mario Bros. 2j. It Could be either the Kaiser (with cheats) or the Whirlwind Manu version (no title screen). It's random.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Tjibynn on June 13, 2011, 04:08:11 PM
Ah oki..

is both versions random or just the Whirlwind Manu ?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: MasterDisk on June 13, 2011, 04:27:58 PM
I mean this one could be the Kaiser version but the next one you see with the same label could be the Whirlwind Manu, it's completly random. You can't know unless you have a picture of the title screen.

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: tb43159 on August 31, 2011, 11:41:06 PM
Thank you! It says 115 on it, so i think that is what it is.  I think it has 1942 in it, at number 19.  Is this a pirate?
Also, I read the blue text on front and it says and I quote:  
" 1This card uses the latest developed cross push button The operation speed for page changing and game selection is 5 to 10 tomes faster than110 card
  2With micromemory it can memory the game you are play-ing and after depressing reset. it will not jump to the first picture. Therefore the operation speed is 100 times faster than cards without micromemory. "
that is in english and Japanese.

Also, can I play this on a North American console with a Honey Bee Family Converter?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Cheetahmen on September 01, 2011, 07:37:10 AM
It's definitely a pirate cart, and I'm pretty sure it'd work on a NES with a converter.

Oh, and that first notice references a 110-in-1 they made where you had to press select to switch pages on the menu. With the one you have you can press left and right to do the same thing.

I have it on a single cartridge but when i press start  the screen turns black and nothing happens...

I want to know the name (if there is another name ) so i can find another copy because the cart is with no label

And on the title screen there is only MINE and it does not help me :D

When i look at it the menu reminds me of  DR.MARIO but DR.MARIO is made by nintendo and i did not find any mine game made by nintendo so if anyone has any clue (if you want i can take a picture of the PCB if it will help you :)

that game (or a variation on it, Mouse Snare) is quite common on plug & play systems like the DreamGear series but I've never seen it on a single cart before... As far as I know it's developed by a Chinese company called Nice Code Software, anyway.

And yeah, there are Famicom versions of Windows (or... things that look like Windows), with their own versions of Minesweeper too, but I don't think this game is from one of them (could be wrong though).

@lobdale: Yes, the Charumera promotion also had special FC system prizes.

@tonev: Are you trying to run 'Mine' on a genuine FC or a clone system? I doubt there is anything physically wrong with the game.

The 'Windows 95' type programme ROMs just display a pretty interface, but have essentially ero function on normal hardware; some are included with Famiclone keyboard systems on a multicart, to push the 'computer' functions of these cheap systems for use in China.  :bomb:

it's not a bad little Mahjong game but being on the SFC it loses a lot of it's charm due to the fact the young ladies in question won't that their kit off, bit like Idol Janshi Suchie-Pai, although this did start off as a Super Famicom game ended up in the arcades and went full circle on the 4th itteration to become a non hentai game again.

Regarding translations : You are aware that a number of those games do have catalogue numbers? For example it would take you all of 0.2 minutes to look up TJC-J6 Famicom on google and get Downtown Special - Kunio Kun no Jidaigeki Dayo Zenin Shuugou!...

Once you seen one Family Stadium game it is very easy to identify the rest as they only change by year... :p

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: digitized_boy on December 23, 2011, 08:59:37 AM
Hey All,
I need your help to find out the name of a famicom game, and possibly a few pictures, and some information about it.
I had a famicom 20 years ago that looked exactly like an original one, and had several thousand games internally on it. It accepted cartridges too. Obviously the games were not all different, and they all come down to less that twenty games if I remember correctly. The first game was Contra. The second give was named something like SANSAN, SONSON, or SUNSUN. I don't remember the name correctly. I looked for these names, and I found SONSON, the monkey boy game. But it's not that one. The game that I am talking about was about a boy who was fighting with a sword, and as you go forward in game, you would get better swords (bigger and finally curved one). Also, you could get and fire some bullets that were either scrolling on the ground or flying in the air toward the target. The game had 8 different levels (I am not sure though). The last level was in a castle or temple that you could go through wrong ways and get back to some previous locations. It was hard to find the way through different paths. At the end of each level there were some big dragons or monsters (most of them flying). You should kill them to go to the next level. I remember after killing the last level's monster, another one appeared, so there were two monsters for the last level. Also, some of the monsters born some creatures while you were fighting with them. Let me see what else I can remember. Oh, I kinda remember that I could shoot the bullets with down arrow.
Does anybody know the name of this game? Can you give me a link to a video of gameplay? I really appreciate any help. It's was my childhood favorite game, and unfortunately I can't remember the name.  :-[


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Cheetahmen on December 23, 2011, 09:06:21 AM
That's Sayuuki World 2. ;) For whatever reason, pirates usually label it as a sequel to SonSon.

Cheetahmen, I don't know how to thank you! You made my day dude. With your help, I found a video on you tube about it. It was Saiyuki World.
Thanks a lot for prompt and perfect reply. You are awesome.

Post Merge: December 23, 2011, 10:28:36 AM
Cheetahmen, I think they renamed Saiyuuki as Sonson because they are both loosely based on the famous Chinese novel Journey to the West.

That's right.

Also above M.U.S.C.L.E. is known as kinnikuman in japan. Used to love those little guys. Had the entire set 2-3 times over until they came out with the colored ones. Even had some giant sized MUSCLE men from japan back in the day.

Don't know. Further inspection showed that even the Falsion is a pirate. It has a small serif on the "T" The labels itself look almost genuine for my untrained eye, but the sleeves do look like someone printed them with a laserprinter. I can take larger pics if anyone's interested

FDS pirates seem more common in Hong Kong than anywhere else - they rarely if ever show up in other pirate hotspots like Taiwan or China. Probably because the disk system itself was never cloned, and HK got an official release of it - anywhere else would have had to rely on expensive Japanese imports.

i could finally try some of the pirate disk games. One of them is made by Hacker Int. It looks like you have to shoot girls with water pistols, but i have no idea what's its name or the actual goal. I'll try to add a picture later.
BTW another disk contained Zelda1 and at least Falsion is actually Falsion :D

I think the one on the left is Super Monkey Daibouken, which I'd say is about as awful as the Transformers game.

So, you are sure that it is Sayuuki World?

Oeka Kids: Anpanman to Oekaki Shiyou!! seems to have been sold with an accessory. I don't think I've ever seen that accessory. Anyone knows anything about it? Is it necessary for the game?

Title: 4-in-1 games
Post by: rhmkun on March 09, 2012, 01:50:51 PM
    Hi gamers,

    I need help in finding some famicom games.

    When I was still uhh 8 or so, we had a famicom cartridge that was a 4-in-1. It had Japanese games. The cartridge had 2 switches to choose which game to play instead of it having a GUI.

    1st game) A Mario-like game (forgot the name).

    2nd game) A Pit Man like game but it had a 3/4 view where you dig holes and once the enemies fall in, you'd need to cover them up or they'd get out (as far as I can remember). You can get power ups like skates and stuff.
 
   3rd game) Totally forgot it. Damn.

    4th game) Title was "BRAVE SOLDIER". Had a Contra-Stallone-like player with a spiked mace that he throws like a yo-yo. Had 2 views, one side scroller and another with a bird's eye-view. Had some gigantic snails for enemies. You need to collect stars to power-up your mace. It also had mirrors that you can go in to get to other areas.

    Got nostalgic and wanted to play them again. Unfortunately, my famicom console and all my games got eaten by a 2D dragon with a MIDI roar or so I remember.

    Couldn't find any info regarding these games. Especially the Brave Soldier. Now that I can read Japanese. Maybe now I can finish the damned thing. We kept on dying coz we didn't know what to do next.

    Hope you can lend a hand here.

I was in Ames, IA for a college visit to Iowa State University, and while I was there, I found a retro video game shop across the street! They had all of your average games and hardware. Anything ranging from Atari 2600 to modern. Anyway, I came across a big box of Famicom games (all of which were in their boxes, they felt CIB). I didn't buy anything because most of the games were either baseball, mahjong, or something of the like, but I came across two games that had interesting cover art and was wondering if anyone could identify them for me so I could research them a bit more.  I apologize for the quality.  These were taken with my phone.

I still got my famicom from when I was a little boy and I would like to know whether any of you can give me some details on it (like maybe a link to the manufacurers or any other info on it). The pictures of it are below:

There are two Golden Axe games I know of, Golden Axe IV - which is the Lord of King hack Cheetahmen mentioned - and Golden Axe by Waixing, which is an original unlicensed game (I dunno if it's a port of the real Golden Axe, I'm not familiar with that series at all)

There was a special version released for the Famicom in Japan, called Gradius Archimedes Hen. This is a special promotion cartridge that was a tie-in with a ramen company. It's the same game, but all of the power up capsules have been replaced by floating bowls of noodles.

Post by: fami-ave on May 29, 2012, 03:57:00 AM
I think there's just no bids because most of them are in shitty condition. The Archimendes-sticker isn't very resistant it seems, so most loose copies come with faded and scuffed stickers that make them rather undesirable.

A mint condition Archimendes Gradius, however, is quite rare and expensive. The box also featured the same red triangle sticker and there was a small folded sheet that explained the Raamen-soup items. This little bonus manual in particular is quite hard to find, most copies that turn up on Yahoo are just the box + game + standard Gradius manual. Complete copies can cost up to 25-40'000 yen depending on the condition.

Thanks, UglyJoe! Not too shabby for 12 bucks. I'm particularly excited about the Goonies, I had no idea that was in there.

You should be particularly excited for Kiki Kaikai, that one is awesome and fairly rare...

Since I've had Kiki Kaikai twice (with manual and even guidebook), I would have been more excited over Halley Wars that I've never had.  ;)

I'm sure most will work fine. Those things are sturdy!

Good call, out of all those untested disks only two were bad: One of the SMB2's and the Goonies. They weren't physically damaged, so I was able to rewrite the games back onto the disks.

For as bad a reputation as FDS games seem to have, I have only come across maybe one in a hundred disks that wouldn't play due to actual surface damage (and that was only on the B side).  More often than not if you have a problem it is conclusively your drive that's bad, not the disk.  They really are pretty resilient.  :diskkun:

This one may be a bit harder. The photo is from a lot, and this cart was right in the middle of the flash. It looks like it's dark green, and you can see a tiny bit of detail if you look at it from an angle. It sort of looks like Soccer, but I'm not sure.

To all on here that played the first Retro Game Challenge on DS:

Anyone know what games I should look for that matches the parodies that you play in the cart?

For example, I know that each game is sort of influenced by a few titles. Can anyone say what they are?

I found this list:

Cosmic Gate - Galaga
Robot Ninja Haggleman - Ninja Jajamaru-kun
Rally King - Zippy Race, Famicom Grand Prix F1 Race, Road Fighter
Star Prince - Star Force, Star Soldier
Guadia Quest - Dragon Quest II
Robot Ninja Haggleman 3 - Ninja Gaiden

Is this true?

Says "Sanma no Meitantei" but the label is not like any other Sanma I've seen... Also says Kobe Green Expo '85 on it. I know they gave away some carts at festivals in Japan - could this be one of those?

Also, should I remove the circular sticker or not?

I dont have pictures but I recently got my hands on a cart with TMNT 2 sticker on it. However it was different from what I remember..

-it had the same title screen as this
http://goo.gl/0E2p7

-stage 1 was set on the beach (instead of a burning building)
-stage 1 boss is still bebop
-stage 2 is set on the ocean
-stage 2 boss is also rocksteady (i think) the design seems different from the original.

Anyways, does anyone know more precisely what this cart is?

Doesn't look like some kid made it though, looks like a real Namcot label on the cart (the spine label is different from the original). The circle was added after as well. Either way, I'll leave it as is.

It's TMNT 3: The Manhattan Project.  The first TMNT game for the NES was never released in Japan, so their numbering scheme is one behind the US numbering scheme.

Are you sure the title screen doesn't look like this, instead:

It actually has the kanji for "fresh" (nama, 生) on it, and the text says "Disk System sized fresh disk" so it may very well just be a "HACKER" brand blank disk for the FDS.

Ah, got my facts wrong.  It was released, but it was titled Gekikame Ninja Den (http://www.mobygames.com/game/nes/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles/screenshots/gameShotId,87158/).  TMNT2 was released as TMNT and TMNT3 was released as TMNT2.  So their numbering is behind, but it's because they titled the first game differently and not because it was unreleased.

Also, lol at the Palcom "Hero" turtles.  Nope, no ninjas in Europe!

Hey guys, I'm looking for some help finding a game I played a long time ago. I've no idea about the name and never had the cartridge either.

It was a sidescrolling fighter game, you playing as one of 4 elemental ninjas : fire, wind, water and earth. I might be bit off in terms of describing each, since I last played it... 15 years ago.

All could call in screenwide strikes of their respective element. Fire could throw stars and call upon a wave of flame hounds. Water... not sure what weapon the water ninja had, nor do I remember too well what specials it used. Wind used a chained sickle, can't remember specials. And finally earth used something like a golf club and if I remember well, it could open up a (purely damaging, no further special effects on me or my enemies) hole in the ground aaaaaaaaaand perhaps also jagged rocks as artillery. Any ideas? I really miss it, thanks in advance.

Ive been reading up a bit, and apparently Whirlwind Manu is actually the company releasing the pirate. As I read on zetaboards "they released pirate versions of many Famicom games and I think they did a few FDS conversions. The 52-in-1 by Supervision has a pirated version of Flappy which credits "Whirlwind Menu" on the title screen, but I don't know if the two companies are connected or if Supervision simply took that version for the hell of it.

Sure dont. It looks like a pirate label with characters from a lot of different games. A goomba, crab from Mario Bros, a giant from Ghosts n Goblins, a random ninja... If someone is able to translate the text it could solve your mystery. i guess its some kind of multicart anyway.

Hi!

I have this game since I was a child, probably bought in 1992 or 93. Now, I have never seen its rom, and there's not much information online about it. Is it worth anything?
(http://gapf.ninth.su/images/super7front.jpg)
(http://gapf.ninth.su/images/super7back.jpg)
It's (as you can see) a pirate multigame. It includes the following:
1. Hudson's Adventure Island II
2. Super C
3. Robocop 2
4. Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu
5. Silkworm
6. Double Dragon III
7 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

Thanks and best regards.

Its a common multi cart worth about $5-10

Hey guys!

Just found this forum and I'm feeling getting into famicom games, again :)
I'm the search of a specific game for a long time. I don't remember much, it was a yellow cartridge famiclone game with the title of Back to the future (tho I'm not sure).
It's a simple platfomer game you control a car (maybe greyish color) which can shoot and even jump. You can also exit the car with your man (iirc it wears some kind of space suit) to get into special places. Also not sure with this one, but you could collect some kind of powerups for the car?

I looked through the Back to the future games but none of them are even close to this. I hope someone played it and able to help as I have very good memories about this game!
Thank you!

I think that's actually a hack of Blaster Master. ;) If I recall, the name of the pirate version is Back Goto Future IV or something like that. :P

Wow ,it is Blaster Master! OH the memories, i have to play it now  ;D
Somehow I always thought it was a SNES clone (and never found it) and never even searched the NES games. My fault!

Maybe the cartridge name was Back Goto Future IV, you are right, but I'm not totally sure. Was long time ago.
Thank you guys!

Hi.  Not only do I not know what game this is.  Also, this game also freezes up after 5- 15 minutes of playing.  Could this be because of an unclean cartridge, or is it just programmed really badly or (became) defective? 

This was reposted since I didn't have a pic for the longest time. Then when I was able to add one up, it appeared as if it was answered in the thread.  Does anybody out there know?
Thank you.

This isn't a game identification, but an accessories one. I think this is the best place to put my post, but if not, please advise.

I recently bid on and won an eBay auction for a Sega Saturn and a whole bunch of controllers and random assorted cables. I assumed that these accessories would be for the saturn itself, but this turned out to be wrong. There were 2 saturn light guns, 4 odd looking controllers, and a megadrive arcade stick. The controllers had weird ports on them, but I swore I had seen them before. I went over to my famicom and sure enough, they fit into the expansion slot thing on the front. They both have no serial/model numbers, but they have the same symbol. If it is unclear in the pics, the symbol is two fists with punching gloves punching each other, with Chinese (or Japanese, sorry I'm bad at identifying this) characters around the ring.

Hello, Famicomworld users!

I have been looking through my old PCBs for Famicom (no cartridge case, only PCBs are left) and found one game that I can't identify at all.
The title screen of it is below this post.

From what I can tell, it's a Japanese version of some game, created by Konami. Unfortunately, I don't have a cartridge case for this, only PCB board.

I hope you can help me to identify what is the name of this game, and was it released on NES in USA or Europe.

This isn't a game identification, but an accessories one. I think this is the best place to put my post, but if not, please advise.

I might be wrong, but I assume that these controllers were made by Subor company that also producted their own Famicom clone that looked just like a real HVC-001 Famicom and clones that would look like a keyboard for PC. Here it's some information about it on BootlegGames Wiki: http://bootleggames.wikia.com/wiki/Subor

Hi All,

I just registered for this forum so apologies if this is in the wrong thread (although looks like the right one to me).

I just purchased a Famicom Disk System (yay!). I picked up this game with the console and was hoping for some insight -

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TONKACHI-MARIO-MARIO-BROS-2-Nintendo-Famicom-Disk-Japan-Disk-Only-1829-dk-/300850728848?ssPageName=ADME:L:COSI:US:1123 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/TONKACHI-MARIO-MARIO-BROS-2-Nintendo-Famicom-Disk-Japan-Disk-Only-1829-dk-/300850728848?ssPageName=ADME:L:COSI:US:1123)

What is Tonkachi Mario? It seems to translate to Hammer Mario, but I can't find any information about a Hammer Mario game in any Nintendo or Mario wiki resource. Is it another name for Kaettikita Mario or something different? Thanks so much for any info.

I believe I've answered my own question!

I found this note on a FDS price spreadsheet:

Machine code editor for FDS games. Came with programming tutorial; also included 'Tonkachi Mario' hack. ; トンカチエディター ; Made by Aistu, makers of Souseiki Fami and other FDS hacking tools

On the reverse side of Tonkachi Editor; A hacked version of 'Super mario Bros.'; details for hacking SMB are included with Tonkachi (in the manual and other publications that followed).

So, for the benefit of anyone else who might stumble up the term Tonkachi Mario (Hammer Mario) on ebay, it's a hacked version of SMB1 included as a B side of the Tonkachi Editor.

The spreadsheet also lists the Tonkachi release date as Jul 1 1987. I bought my Tonkachi disk on Jul 1 2013, 26 years to the day   ;D

Oh, I used to have an NES version of that same multicart, but it had different cover art so that threw me off. It's actually one of the better multis I've seen. It has something like 80 unique games on it; pretty much the typical early FC/NES releases that you'll find on pirate multis, but this one had pretty much all of them. I'm not sure about paying $30 for it, though.

The game itself is Excitebike.

alrighty. Challenge mode.

I've been playing a game, but my "only speak 'Murican" ways are keeping me from the title.

Here we go. Its a white cart. Its got a save battery. Its an rpg. But not turn based. Its random battle, but action sequences instead of turn based. Something like....oh...a Tales Of game. You play as a little mech. You look a little like the guy from Xexyz.

The cover art has a bunch of people on the front, all anime style. Its got...what I'd assume is the main character in the center. He's a spikey brown haired kid dressed in blue and red with a Katana. Other folks are around him. And behind him is a real BIG mech. Gundam Style...Reminds me alot actually of Tekkaman Blade if that means anything to anyone.

If ANYONE know the answer to this, I'd LOVE to know the name of this game

I do not have photos of the game, because it does not have (I had it I was a kid but then all the games I gave a friend, and they do not know where they are). Now I'm looking for the name of the game. I remember there was a man on horseback, it was possible to stand and crouch and shoot a bow. the game was like from the side ... that is, we saw a horse and rider sideways and scroll the screen with the game. Rode on a horse during a storm, the wind was, and perhaps even lightning. More unfortunately, I do not remember. Someone may recalls such a game?

There is no such game... it sounds like a mix from some of the early nintendo games, such as popeye or donkey kong.
I dont think so, this multicart have 2 menus, the 1st menu tune is from "Donkey Kong", so the 2nd menu tune (in my post) it can be from another game http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BH18SxL-ppY

I figured out two of them already ( I bought the lot cuz Conquest of Crystal Palace was in it):
* Maten Doujin / Conquest of Crystal Palace (to the right)
* Okhotsk ni Kiyu - Hokkaidou Rensa Satsujin (upper right corner)

The other three are?... I've seen the game to the left before a few times...

Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Ghegs on April 22, 2014, 09:08:31 AM
I was just going to say the same thing. Both NesCartDB (http://bootgod.dyndns.org:7777/search.php?catalog_op=LIKE+%60%25%40%25%60&catalog=IF-&field=3&order=desc&rfa=1+2+11+3+9+20+41+53) and this site (http://www.arcade-gear.com/Games/Irem/Irem.htm) only have a blank where IF-19 should be. Admittedly NesCartDB has some other holes as well, but those titles was easily accounted for, leaving IF-19 the only missing one.

It's possible the game, whatever it was, was planned but cancelled before release, and they didn't want to reuse the catalog number.


Title: Re: Game Identification

I wonder if it was supposed to be Legend of Hero Tonma.  It was apparently slated for a 1990 release, which would fit in with the timeline between IF-18 and IF-20.  http://www.ne.jp/asahi/oroti/famicom/mab07.html#1 (http://www.ne.jp/asahi/oroti/famicom/mab07.html#1)

It is quite possible. Some cancelled game in between Meikyuujima (IF-18) and Paaman (IF-19).
The "no released games" list from Famicomplete shows this ones from IREM:

  • Undercover Cops
  • Geopolitic島における国家興亡論
  • Gensan no Quiz Triathlon
  • 魔獣都市ナーガ
  • The Legend of Hero Tonma

One of these five cancelled games could have been registered (patented, etc) with the missing code.

Wow, I didn't know that a Famicom port of Legend of Hero Tonma was planned. Now I'm bummed out, I would've loved to play that. And Irem didn't release R-Type for FC either, despite the game being available on pretty much every other contemporary platform. What a shame.

According to the dictionary:

1. noun A Pair of Firecrackers, a cartoon series created by Chu Thi-Yong and adapted for television by producer Wu Zongde


I guess the title literary means "A pair of Firecrackers".

I thought that it was by Bit Corp originally, because I had Jackpot game on 400-in-1 Real Game from them, and this game used the same text font, and was just as glitchy at the beginning as there. And I was right. It's from 1988 by Bit Corp, one of the first unlicensed games for Famicom. XD


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: P on October 08, 2014, 09:07:42 PM
炮 can mean both cannon and firecracker. I'm not sure why it's romanized as Shenghenpao though. Shuāngxiǎngpo should be the correct mandarin romanization of those characters (in pinyin). I guess Shenghenpao is either the pronunciation in another Chinese language/dialect or it uses some other romanization system.

First one is エルナークの財宝, which means something like "Treasure of Elnark".

Second one looks like some hacked version of 幽遊白書 爆闘暗黒武術会, which is a fighting game based on the Yu Yu Hakusho franchise.  The official version is for the Datach unit and uses a barcode scanner.  That version must have programmed out the barcode features or something.

So, being pretty new to identifying Famicom games that don't have the English title written in readable form, I need some assistance looking at the following pictures of lot of Famicom stuff that possibly would be a trade object for me.

The primary thing I need to know is: are there any titles amoung the listet worth playing? When evaluating this I need to point out that I don't understand Japanese and don't really enjoy that many era sport games, besides from track and field etc. - but one could be surprised. RPGs in Japanese only and weird Japanese games have no real interrest - so what's really left worth playing, and how would you guys value the lot of CIB games + the (pirate?) Famicom console.

The sheer volume of CIB games seems tempting and overwelming, but am I being tempted by quantity alone, with no real substance and playability amoung the games?

That is a lot of games, but the vast majority of them are RPGs and sports titles. Cutting out games that require knowledge of the language and sports games, here's what you're left with (assuming I didn't miss any):

Goonies 2 (knowing Japanese does help, but it's not strictly required)
Star Soldier
Hector '87
Rally Bike
Yoshi's Cookie
Yoshi's Egg
Wario's Woods
Baltron
Bomberman
Star Force
Binary Land
F1 Hero
Tower of Druaga
Hikari no Senshi Photon: The Ultimate Game on Planet Earth
Tetris
Tetris Flash
Joy Mech Fight
King Kong 2

Nothing really special there, not one game I'd consider an A-list title. If you're looking for games to play and not just collect, that might not be the best bundle for you.

It's a great RPG-parody boardgame as you can see. I've played it a lot and strongly recommend it. It's a good party game but also fun to play 1 player.

Do you (and others) think that ~90$ is a reasonable price for this game?


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: Ghegs on March 03, 2015, 06:16:19 PM
Okay, I try to keep away from the pirate cart-enjoying folks' discussions about them, because hey, whatever rocks your boat, but $90 for a cheaply-made sprite hack is just flat-out insane. Especially since you could buy the game's original cart five times over with that money. I wouldn't pay $5 for something like that. I'm sure the actual value is slightly higher than that, but I hope it's nowhere near $90. That would just make me sad.


Title: Re: Game Identification
Post by: P on March 03, 2015, 07:45:24 PM
Yeah I don't think any sprite hack would be worth that much. Only things like the Super Mario World pirate could go for something like that.

When I play it, it is called "Duck".  It is a children's game with 20 levels. The object is to get the egg to the fireplace.  You are a mother hen getting through each puzzle.

I can't seem to find any other information on it to gauge how much it is worth.  It might be a complete clone.

Any idea offhand?

It's an original unlicensed game from one of the first unlicensed game companies developing games for Famicom, Bit Corp.  This is also one of their rarer games (imo), and I envy you for owning an original print version (my copy, albeit also old, is not in the original Bit case).  Game is inspired by the title Ghegs said, but this was programmed independently.  Released in Australia by Home Entertainment Suppliers on NES as well.

Post by: nerdynebraskan on May 31, 2015, 02:44:33 PM
I was going to say that looks like Duck Maze, as I used to have the HES version of that game. It's kind of a cool twist on the Lode Runner concept, but I found at least that version of the game frustrating to the point of being unplayable. I've thought about picking up the Master System version of Penguin Land, as it looks a bit better.

From upper left: Famicom Mukashibanashi: Yuuyuuki (kouhen (latter volume)), Volley ball, Tantei Jinguuji Saburo: Kikenna Futari (can't tell if it's zenpen or kouhen), SD Gundam Gachaponsenshi, can't see you need to take a better picture.

The final loose disk is another Yuuyuuki disk (can't see if it's zenpen or kouhen though).

Unfortunately I wasn't able to contact directly with the owner, maybe he's a member of FW forums around here?

Anyways, what's most interesting about it, is that from what I see it looks almost like our domestic "Pegasus" famiclone, but those red finishes doesn't match "Pegasus's" gray ones:

I've already managed to find one of his "relatives", the Ken-Kid (http://www.forum.emunes.pl/index.php?topic=4416.0) famiclone, so maybe there are more of them out there?

It's called "Hyper Olympic Tonosama Version" or "Hyper Olympic Genteiban!".  It's basically a sprite hack of Hyper Olympic that replaces the main athlete with one of Ken Shimura's (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Shimura) comedy characters.  See also: http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=6806.0 (http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=6806.0)

Hey guys, I'm looking for some help finding a game I played a long time ago. I've no idea about the name and never had the cartridge either.

It was a sidescrolling fighter game, you playing as one of 4 elemental ninjas : fire, wind, water and earth. I might be bit off in terms of describing each, since I last played it... 15 years ago.

All could call in screenwide strikes of their respective element. Fire could throw stars and call upon a wave of flame hounds. Water... not sure what weapon the water ninja had, nor do I remember too well what specials it used. Wind used a chained sickle, can't remember specials. And finally earth used something like a golf club and if I remember well, it could open up a (purely damaging, no further special effects on me or my enemies) hole in the ground aaaaaaaaaand perhaps also jagged rocks as artillery. Any ideas? I really miss it, thanks in advance.

Bump! Here's to hoping someone might just know what I'm on about. I played this game on one of those Arcade "consoles" (?), with a joystick and probably four buttons.

I've played a bit of this game, I don't remember a clothesline but I do remember knocking paintcans over to cover enemies, this seems like the kind of game that would have pants on a clothesline. And Paaman does have a cape. And every stage end with a weird boardgame thing that is annoying and random.

IF you remember back in the 90s there was a site run by a guy who called himself Ballz that had some famicom and fds roms on it. Among other things he was working on a translation of Romancing SaGa 2, which I don't think went anywhere.
Anyway there was an article on his site about this insane FDS game, which looked like it was made on drugs. I remember that there was a hipoo who flew holding an umbrealla like Mary Poppins. I've long since lost the rom, and since I now own a Twin Famicom, I'm interested in getting this on disk.
Does anyone remember the name of this game?

A few days ago I found this... thing. What it is??!! People says that Miyamoto Shigeru is written in the from of the cart.  :-\  Also , it's a Super Mario Bros 3 , because it's the same board that uses Mario 3 , also haves "UM" written , so , HVC-UM , wich means Mario 3 , thats all I know.

Is this a bootleg of Gomokunarabe?  I'm going to assume yes because I also have the version in the black shell, but just wanted to make sure this wasn't some weird version of it.  Seems like an odd game to bootleg and it doesn't look like any of the other famiclone carts I have which is why I'm curious.

The front label seems very similar to the original Gomokunarabe label at least. I guess the best way to tell is to play it.
I also have a Raid on Bungeling Bay cart that looks like it has the original label but it has a different colored cart case. When I played it, it was a totally different game. I planned to open it and see what kind of board was inside, but I forgot about it.

I contacted with a calligraphist and... It's the calligraphy from a 3 year old kid , I removed one of the stickers from the ROMS , and it's a normal retail version , just they got  Translate Google , an orange shell and a Mario 3 , maybe it was at that place bacuse they  "scrapped the fake"

3 year old kid haha. Yeah well it certainly doesn't look like it's a signed copy from Miyamoto anyway.
I guess they put labels on the chips to make it look like a prototype or something and sell it for more money.

Hello!  :)
I don't know if this is the right thread but I got to ask this Question. I bought this Game at a local flee market for about 5 bucks. On the Label, it says "Super Squirrel King" and "NT893". I cant really find any good information about it... is it common or rare? did I pay to much? is it even a famicom Cartridge? (I Hope so  :-[) I attached a picture of the Game below and i hope some of you guys can help me :)

Thank you so much, I was very curious.

Valkyrie no Bōken: Toki no Kagi Densetsu Is very reminiscent of the original Legend of Zelda.

 :help:

What are these games called? And if there's any English translation that would be great too haha

Left column:

Getsu Fūma Den
Ninja-kun
Adventure Island
Mugen Senshi Valis

Right column:

Ninja Jajamaru-kun
SD Gundam Gachapon Senshi 3: Eiyuu Senki
Super Chinese 2
Super Chinese 3

You can just Google the four or five-character code the cartridge has (GTS-VA for Valis), that usually finds them.
