Magic Kid Googoo
« on: March 16, 2011, 09:29:15 AM »
I was looking through the List of Undumped Games on the wiki, and one particular game caught my eye: a little-known Korean Famicom game by Zemina called Magic Kid Googoo.

Y'all may notice something vaguely familiar about the screenshots here, but... I'll get to that in a bit.


A Korean gamer posted a video and some screenshots of the game:
http://blog.daum.net/_blog/BlogTypeView.do?blogid=0L8pu&articleno=4880815&_bloghome_menu=recenttext#ajax_history_home

One of the screenshots is a credit screen.

Koo Eun-joong, the lead developer of this game, was also lead developer on Buzz & Waldog. Even the music has the same composer, Kwon Dae-yong.

Now you see the similarities, right? :)


Edit: I'd read about this, but totally forgotten it till now-- Open, the developer of Buzz & Waldog, was founded by a bunch of former Zemina developers. So yep, this is definitely the team that split off to become Open.

Wait WHAT?

Zemina, whose Super Boy games frankly suck, with MAYBE the exception of 4, did the awesome Metal Force game? :O

Mind you, they probably teamed up with some members of Daou Infosys, although I wouldn't exactly describe The General's Son (Famicom version) as a stellar title either.

BTW, is there any reason why the title is in English on the title screen when it's in Korean on the cart label?

Oh, and the video player on that blog doesn't seem to work. I tried it on Firefox and Internet Explorer 8 and the video wouldn't start up on either of them. I'm willing to bet it requires IE6 to run, but it's not worth installing that POS again if you ask me.

Zemina as a company didn't make it, but a team from Zemina split off to become Open Corp. and made Metal Force. It'd be like saying Virgin Interactive made Earthworm Jim.

It's just that Daum's streaming server is down half the time, and has ridiculously low bandwidth the other half.

I'd upload it to Youtube if I could, because at least that way it'd be watchable.

We don't mind jokes, honestly... some of us here are amazingly snarky. We do mind when four-month-old threads are bumped just to post a joke that isn't even related to the game being discussed.

And at least two of us are Youtube YONG YONGers and I listen to S.O.D. and have a copy of Parodius so it'd be kind of ironic if I didn't have a sense of humour. :D

I think you need to learn that there's a time and a place for making jokes, and unless you can come up with some legimate points related to the topic at hand, bumping a topic that's several months old is not one of them.

Edit: Correction, Youtube P00pers. And that's how you beat the system. :P

EDIT (KingPepe): You're such a sneaky Tosspot.
