Retro Gaming News: Detective Conan: The Mechanical Temple Murder Case for Game Boy Color - IN ENGLISH!





"
After a lot of laborious work, the first Game Boy Color release of Detective Conan is available in English! This is my first full hack after a few aborted attempts at other games. The game itself is all about text rather than skill, so it took a long time - the hardest part was the translating, as my Japanese isn’t all that great and it takes me a while to get the translation right.
The GBC is an ideal system to do, because while it’s still relatively primitive, it also has huge carts, way bigger than strictly necessary. So nothing in this game was compressed, making my job a whole lot easier.
It’s not the most challenging game out there, but the story is entertaining, especially if you’re familiar with Detective Conan. The quality of dialogue will make or break this translation, so efforts were made to get it sounding as natural and interesting as possible.
Enjoy! And hopefully the second game will come eventually, too!

Game Review (by (wraith)):

I’m not sure exactly what type of game this is due to all the text, but it looks really neat. There’s some nice cutscenes for some of the dialog with some totally sweet looking backgrounds (as far as Gameboy graphics go), and they have this neat effect for text display where a huge-ass portrait of the character speaking scrolls in from offscreen and it’s like *BEWM* and then the person talks. When you’re done with the cutscene thing, you’re in this run-of-the-mill overhead view type thing where you examine lots of stuff in these three rooms, but never turn up anything that lets you go to the next area. Well, I’m pretty sure it’s obvious what you’re supposed to do when you understand the dialog, but I’m sure you know how it goes when you can’t. But I digress. This game has lots of promise. Check it out!

Description:

Complete, 100% translation of the first GBC Detective Conan game. Everything is done, even an easter egg and a debug menu (although it isn’t known yet how to access that).
