Long-lost NES prototype: "Bio Force Ape"
« on: April 07, 2011, 11:06:23 PM »
Don't know how I missed this till now, but the long-elusive prototype NES game "Bio Force Ape" was finally found and dumped just last month. It's perhaps the best game involving a superpowered mutant wrestling chimpanzee to ever grace the NES.

Includes not only the ROM dump, but also a playthrough video of the whole game. It's not extremely long, and still very... prototype-y. But it's still awesome.

And it took twenty years for someone to actually find a copy!

I watched the stream of this when it was first obtained just a year ago. I was starting to wonder if they'd ever release it at all.

This woulda been a cool game for piraters to get, like Time Avenger. It's got all the makings of their nonsense labels and all, like the beeman with the head in its crotch lol.

Something tells me that the "Eat Communism" scene will end up becoming a meme.

I remember hearing about this game back on Unseen64! This obscure gem could of been Seta's best titles for the NES.
I never seen an obscure action-platform title for the old NES this fast before, may be worth a try for myself. :)
