Pirate Ports: 16-bit Fun on an
Thanks to Famicom pirates, we are able to have ports of games that we
would otherwise not be able to have.
Famicom port of Konami's hit dance game Dance Dance Revolution.
Features a few different songs; however, they do not sound
and the beat does not match up with the arrows. In fact, the controls
are pretty bad, so good luck getting all "Prefects."
on the Super Nintendo game Super Donkey Kong 2, known in the
Donkey Kong Country 2. Not too bad graphics-wise, the game even
includes details like "idle" animations when you don't move Diddy.
However, the game is not without its flaws: poor controls make it very
difficult to play.
is an excellent port of the first Earthworm Jim game on the SNES. This
game is actually pretty good and seems to stay pretty faithful to the
original. The controls are pretty good (unlike some of the other games
on this page) and the graphics are excellent.
Mario World, originally for the SNES, lands on the Famicom with a bang!
This game features several levels, and some decent gameplay. The music
doesn't sound half-bad either. The version that I have is on a
multicart and features a level-select screen.
