Sintax comes home

posted by taizou @ 2020-07-06 02:41:21 Dumps

So far, all the Sintax GBA dumps I've posted here have come from English or Russian-language releases. Sintax being a Chinese company, though, they also released Chinese-language versions of their games for the local market. But, unlike GBC (where probably the majority of my collection is Chinese in origin), I've never really tried to source interesting-looking GBA carts from China, and hence I've never had any of those versions to dump.

But, fortunately, some dumpers from China have picked up the slack, so today I can bring you Chinese versions of a couple of games I previously dumped in other languages.

These ROMs were kindly provided to me by a123_ddd for distribution here.

Leiman IV - Guangming Zhi Lü (雷曼IV 光明之旅)

This is the Chinese version of Rayman IV, of which I've previously posted the Russian and English versions here. It seems to be the same as the other versions, aside from the title screen.

Amazingly, this is not the last remaining language version - there was also a German release. Rayman is truly gaming's Mr. Worldwide.

Chaoji Maliou DX (超级玛莉欧DX)

And this is the Chinese version of Super Mario DX. This one at least has unique translated level names, so there's a bit more of a difference between the language versions.

Um, taizou, where do you live? Just asking because of time zone differences; I'm a foreigner (Buenos Aires timezone, althrough I'm not Argentinean myself) and I posted this on 20:00 (8 pm I think), but notice how the time is different. AFAIK you're from the UK, right?

What languages was Sintax known to release GBA stuff in? I know they had Thai, English, German, and Chinese releases for GBC. It looks like they started covering a lot more markets on the GBA (that or their GBC stuff is just not as well documented in certain territories)

@guyzis I do not know of any Spanish Sintax games, though it would not surprise me if they exist. If you know of one, could you link me a picture of it? I like to keep a collection of interesting games I spot on the internet

Unrelated, but I found da wae to continue to next level in Digimon Sapphire (Unencrypted Version) on My Boy emulator: Skip credits, choose Continue on the main menu, and that's all. I commented here because Neo Fuji isn't open for comments now.
