Ads from the past 312: Ms Pacman (SNES)


This game was a late release for the SNES especially for a game from the 1980s. Some things I just don't know why? Either way, the ad is cute and shows Ms Pacman waving calling you to kick some ass!

Ads from the past 310: Donkey Kong

This is a very popular ad that deserves a place here at Retro Gaming Life. This ad is from the original game Donkey Kong and it's quite funny. Mario has a red nose and Pauline is about to faint. A little adaptation of King Kong huh?

Retro Gaming News: Namco Classic II




"

Description:

Here is a translation patch for the Namco golf game, Namco Classic II. Most of the game is translated but there are issues where the text is garbled when asking for caddie advice, caddie selection, pro selection, and a few lines here and there. The game is navigable and playable to an extent so the patch is being made available to the public and is suspended till the rest of the code can be figured out as it is finicky and has some issues when altering it."

Retro Gaming News: Back to the Future (Enhanced)



"

Description:

This patch was made at the request of Tramsam500. It makes graphical and gameplay changes to make the game more enjoyable. The text was changed to look nicer. The title screen was enhanced. Marty now has a red vest like he does in the movie, as well as blue sleeves. The picture of Marty and his siblings was horrible, and also enhanced to look nicer. There is a new ending as well. Also, gameplay elements such as infinite lives, and an instant win at Lou’s Cafe, make the game less difficult so the gamers can enjoy the main game."

Ads from the past 309: Mega Man X (PC)

This game was released for the PC as well. For those of you who didn't know, this game was more than just any game, it was the first Capcom game CD-rom game and that's saying a lot. Capcom would go on to release a bunch of others including Resident Evil 2, and Street Fighter 2. It may not mean much but it's part of video gaming history.

Retro Gaming News: B-Wings Unlimited Morphs



"

Description:

This hack added the select button the function to switch wings in the game, there are 13 total wings in the game (10 normal wings and 3 extra wings found in secret places), but there are still a few minor bugs:
  • wing 14 is “no wing” (the previous wing graphics will remain on the screen)
  • you must wait 0,5 seconds to attack after switching to wing 11,12,13 (crash or suicide)
  • if you activated the shield with wing 11 and switched to 12 don’t attack (boss enter error)."

Retro Gaming News: An Apeeling Sonic Hack



"

Description:

Do you like the Super Peel-out? This hack’s just for you! Why waste your time with a Spindash that forces you to be rolling if you can manually hold down to do it? It’s so great that Sonic decided to use it as his only means of movement, he sure seems excited to start his journey through Green Hill Zone… again! But you know what’s even more fun than Green Hill Zone? Why Marble Zone of course! What’s that? You find it impossible to go through Marble zone because of the platforming in it? Don’t worry about that, you can Jump while Peeling-out. Eh? You say this defeats the whole point of the hack? Well too bad. It would be too hard for anyone (and some stages would be impossible unless tool assisted). The concept is stupid enough as is. You may ask, “What if you get stuck on a bumper?” Don’t worry, after a few hits of going straight up, it will let you out. Springs are no issue either, you can control your movement while in that state.
Hmm…? what’s that? You’re here for the easter eggs? Try beating the game with all emeralds or holding buttons around to trigger something. You might find Action, Bikes and Cats, and maybe the occasional dog, who knows… Don’t worry, it’s not as cryptic as last time, you don’t have to play through a level of that hack with the red recolor cat either."

Retro Gaming News: Bust-A-Move - Bust-M-Up Edition



"

Description:

Bust-M-Up is a hack made for the SNES version of Bust-A-Move. Do not use this patch with a Puzzle Bobble ROM. Even though they appear to be the same game, there are minor differences which will render the patch useless given the wrong game. Easiest way to tell if you’ve got the right ROM is to open it up and read the title screen. Anyway…
What is changed:
  • All 100 levels re-mapped
  • 4 bubbles in a row to pop (instead of the usual 3)
  • Credits changed
  • Boss takes 10 hits (used to be 12), but has a new “arena”
  • Brown bubbles and invisible bubbles can’t be popped, so they present a new challenge to the game"

Yu-gi-oh! Card of the Week 028: Tomozaurus


The question is, which is the monster of such name? Is it the one that's getting bitten or the one doing the biting! Maybe it's both? I'm confused!

Retro Gaming News: FIGHBIRD English Translation 2016 Released!



"
“Taiyou no Yuusha: Fighbird”, aka “Brave Fighter of the Sun: Fighbird” is a shoot’em up game based on a mecha anime of the Yuusha or Brave series. (Protip: use Select in some instances in the game). The game is super easy when you acquire the level 3 homing missiles (which is OP).
The author decided on making an English re-translation of this obscure Japanese game because the previous group did not translated some of the game’s texts (i.e. the part when you did not rescue the people then the Doctor says something about it; while some untranslated texts were simply unused).
Before, the author wanted to make a bugfix/addendum patch of the translation made by Dragoon-X Translations (DXT). But the translation took liberties on its own without much reference with the anime counterpart. And there were messups with the hexadecimals that made some palettes on the talking heads glitchy. And there’s the notorious misnomer of “Kenta”, which DXT (and PL Translations) called “Kesota”. Understandably, they mistaken “n”, [ン] with “so”, [ソ]. The names of each member of the Baron Team is used instead of the regular vehicle names. And there’s their title logo, not gonna touch it because its cool. Eventually, the author made a fresh start with the original ROM.
Note that the author rendered a nice and new title logo and mini in-game logo :)
Please enjoy the game!"

Ads from the past 308: Commander Keen Aliens Ate my Babysitter (PC)


 One of my favorite artworks of all time has an ad! This is the only Commander Keen that saw the light of a release. The others were order only so they really didn't had a cover like this one. I wonder who did this beauty of a cover. It shows how amazing the game really is in art form. Keen dreams!
