day 2 brings the first new game of this little selection - I've been referring to it as "navy game" but it tells me its real name is Hai Zhan Qi Bing (海戰奇兵). it's a strategy game, about, you know, boats and stuff. Cart provided by Qiezei!

raw: Hai Zhan Qi Bing (Unlicensed, Chinese) [Raw Dump].zip
fixed: Hai Zhan Qi Bing (Unlicensed, Chinese) [Fixed].zip

coming up tomorrow... recycling for fun and profit.

oh and it says "Jump Technology" on the cart but that's just Sintax again.

There's some weird garbled bits of a DOS batch script at the beginning of the ROM, which appears to have been for renaming source files. It's clear that one part is supposed to be "REN SLG_SCR.19 SLG_SCR.20", for instance.

oh yeah! weird. there's also text from a Gamtec tool in there (as seen in a bunch of other Sintax and related games)

The music for level 2 is from the undumped Final Fantaxy IX. Also, the intro is somewhat unskippable.

Yeah, the music from both this and FFIX is actually from RPG Maker GB, because Sintax was never one for writing their own soundtracks. (To be fair, the RPG Maker GB soundtrack is *awesome*, so I can't blame them.)

This game is *basically* the same as Pocket Monster Saphires engine. :D Either way, this is bloody awesome, I love stratagy games like this. :)

I finally beat this game. 19 levels in total, after-battle boxes in stage 17 are glitched up.

Also just to keep a note. While both pokemon sapphire and super robot war X don't feature a shop system. Navy game and skob's fire emblem game do. Just that skob's fire emblem game has several extra features that sintax's navy game does not have for example.

Strategy game? RPG Maker music? Has something to do with Sintax? SKOB's Fire Emblem!
