I saw it on an asian website (Rinkaku, I think) and it's basically a graphics hack of Super Mario Bros.

Wow, that Cube Tech page is amazing. I especially like the 16-bit-ified version of Super Mario--er, I mean, Pandamar.

Edit: And they left in Damian Yerrick's copyright notice on Nibbles. It's like they're not even trying.

Edit #2: Cheetahmen, you entirely missed the row with Mystery Quest, Mickey Mousecapade, Milon's Secret Castle and Flipull.

Can someone translate the name at the top of the page? :\

Or they respect homebrew developers too much to remove the copyright. Nah, I'm pretty sure you're right on that. :P

Can someone translate the name at the top of the page? :\[/quote]The name above the menu literally translates to Cube Technology Co. Ltd. :D The menu items under it are Home Page, Shooting, Product List, and Contact Method.

Edit: And the text next to "Shooting Games" means... well... "Shooting Games". The text next to "Fun Games" is simply "Games". At least they're obvious with the translations.

Damnit, I was hoping for the name of the clone. :(

Edit: I just noticed that it says that there's 16 shooting games and 28 fun (as in, ripped off) games when there's obviously a lot more than that. Evidently, Cube Tech's counting skills leave a lot to be desired. :facepalm:

Row 6 Column 2 is also Exerion. Same exact HUD as, well, the other Exerion. Maybe not. Any other NES games have the exact same score display as Exerion?

Well the background suffers from a horrible colour palette, to put it simply. Also, the HUD is in a slightly different position on the other game, which seems kind of pointless.

Sky Destroyer and Exerion have a similar HUD. I'm guessing that the mystery game in R6C2 is by Jaleco or Taito.

Actually, I just realised that it's Xevious. The crosshair above the player's sprite gives it away.

Edit: Just realised that I missed a row of games after Q-Bert:

Mystery Quest
Mickey Mousecapabe
Milon's Secret Castle
Flipull

Flipull[/quote]Yeah, I edited a comment to mention those after you'd already replied to it. ::facepalm::
Also, the game with the dice is Palamedes II, not the original Palamedes. The score counter is different.

Just noticed that the game which I incorrectly labelled as Five Days is actually B-Wings, a game that happens to be 100 times better than it. :P

3rd game on the next-to-the-last row is a Cube Tech VT03 original called "X-Ball". The Funclick/SameGame game is also Cube Tech's original code, released as "Maze Ball".
"Ratation" is yet another Cube Tech VT03 original, "Catch Copy", which spells "rotation" correctly.
As is the Lolo-esque game, which is actually Cube Tech's "Snack Time".
Yet another case of Cube Tech hacking themselves! The game with the kitchen background is a much nicer-looking version of "Magical Kitchen".

Also, if Snack Time is original then why are the graphics ripped from Adventures of Lolo? :rolleyes:

Edit: I just noticed how sloppy some of the hacking is. Not only do some games look incredibly similar to the original versions, the Brush Roller hack still has the colour clashing errors from the original. This completely stupid because VT03 or whatever these games run on is perfectly capable of avoiding this. I also just realised that the Field Combat hack either has stages that are one screen big, or the wrong mirroring. (The Korean 105-in-1 has the same error)

Oh, and that game after Tiger-Heli looks a lot like Stack-Up.
