sintaxmas 2013!

posted by taizou @ 2013-12-25 12:50:06 Dumps

merry sintaxmas everyone! sintax claus has six things for you this year - all but the first are variants of previously dumped games but some of them are fairly interesting I think. no cart pictures because i don't have access to them right now, sorry.

(oh and hopefully you know the drill by now but the raw dumps will only work in hhugboy or MESS, fixed versions are for all other emulators)

Mo Shou Shi Ji: Zhan Shen (魔獸世紀-戰神)

"World of Warcraft" or a fairly bad platform shooter thing. With an entirely new engine, unexpectedly. In the first level you can literally just hold down right and you pick up enough health items to cancel out the damage you take from enemies. Later levels add a bit more variety though, thankfully.

Feng Zhi Gou II (风之谷II)

This is more or less the engine from Final Fantaxy IX with a few tweaks and without the overworld. It's supposed to be based on MapleStory but I have it on good authority that it actually has nothing whatsoever to do with it.

(thanks to KingPepe for testing this one!)

2003 Shu Ma Bao Long: Ge Dou Ban (2003数码暴龙 格斗版)

well this one's my favourite. the engine from that Three Kingdoms beat 'em up with some loose Digimon theming applied. characters that are obviously just repurposed sprites from somewhere else, enemies that are often just dinosaurs and Sintax self-promotion in the backgrounds. what's not to like?

Luo Ke Ying Xiong EXE5 (络克英雄EXE5) / Luo Ke Ren X5 (洛克人X5)

this is yet another variant on the Castlevania game, this time Mega Man-themed.

if I can go off on a tangent here: interestingly while it uses the usual Chinese name for Rockman (洛克人, luò kè rén) on the title screen, on the cart it has the name 络克英雄 (luò kè yīng xióng), which more or less translates to "Rock Hero", albeit with a different "luo" character. This is very close to the Chinese name for Vast Fame's Zook Hero series, 路克英雄 (lù kè yīng xióng); Sintax previously released a game called "洛克英雄传3" (luò kè yīng xióng chuán 3) or "Rock Hero Legend 3", which kind of serves as a semi-official-unofficial sequel to the two GBC Zook Hero games, and Vast Fame's own GBA follow-up was called "Zook Man ZX4" in Taiwan, so I guess this is supposed to be the next entry in the series?

anyway, thanks to Shazam for supplying the cart!

2003 Gu Huo Lang II (2003古惑狼II)

The previously dumped Crash Bandicoot game in Chinese, if you're into that sort of thing.

Bing Yuan Li Xian Ji II (冰原歷險記II)

finally, this game is already dumped, but here's another variant. its better known as Ice Age 2, although the label just says "冰原歷險記" without the II.

Taizou do you happen to have cheat codes for the Mo Shou Shi Ji: Zhan Shen. Because i have been playing the game just to see the ending. However i am at a part in the third level that i just can't pass unless i absolutely use cheat codes. Also someone should make note that while final fantasy ix is still not dumped. We have a interesting graphics hack of their digimon battle spirit game instead. Also i have found out that the graphics hack that has been dumped. It uses graphics from their final fantasy X game instead.

Also there is a part in the second level in san goku shi:act c i can't pass unless i absolutely use cheat codes. Also can you provide cheat codes for the 2003 Shu Ma Bao Long: Ge Dou Ban too please. As the part i can't pass in that game is in the first level actually.

Taizou i think Bing Yuan Li Xian Ji II was released before ice age ii:the movie. I think the alternative ice age ii rom was released after the movie because it is a hack of their 2003 crash bandicoot game instead.

Imagine giving a fuck if someone uses cheat codes in games that are single player, now thats a noob...

I like how they left “The Huge Adventure” part in English on the Crash bootleg due to it being kind of illegible.
