TINA'S ADVENTURE ISLAND 4 RELEASED!!!!

29 December 2019 9:27AM EST - Update by Zynk

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

This is a player sprite hack of Adventure Island 4 (AI4) for the NES. This hack changes Master Higgins’ player sprites into his girlfriend Tina. There are 2 language patches: ENG and JPN.

Finally, the very last NES (or rather Famicom) game of the Adventure Island series, not only had an English translation , but also a Tina player edition. Unlike the previous three games, AI4 is more of an adventure game where the player collects items and weapons from different parts of the island to progress. Master Higgins, or rather in this case, Lovely Tina is the heroine and its up to her to save their dino-pals who got abducted by a mysterious evil face from the sky.

Both English and Japanese patch works on the original Japanese ROM, so there is no need to apply the ENG patch over the English translation hack. Enjoy!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!!

TINA'S ADVENTURE ISLAND 3 RELEASED!!!

16 November 2019 11:48PM EST - Update by Zynk

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

This is a player sprite hack of Adventure Island 3 for the NES. This hack changes Master Higgins’ player sprites into his girlfriend Tina. There are 2 patches for each region release: US and JP.

Unsurprisingly, Adventure Island 3’s sprite structure is similar to Adventure Island 2, but with new gameplay features, like the player can now duck down, a surfboard bonus game, a boomerang weapon - can be thrown upward, and an additional dinosaur - a triceratops named Poley, it does a rolling attack and does not sink in quicksand.

The US patch is compatible with the current level hacks for the game, but you have to play it on a specific emulator, like VirtuaNES.

TINA'S ADVENTURE ISLAND 2 RELEASED!!

16 October 2019 2:02PM EST - Update by Zynk

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

This is a player sprite hack of Adventure Island 2 for the NES. This hack changes Master Higgins’ player sprites into his girlfriend Tina. There are 3 patches for each region release: US, JP, and EU.

A lot of sprites were reconstructed to fit Tina’s custom sprites; notably, the skateboarding, jumping and swimming sprites, and the part where the player is riding IN the pterodactyl, instead of only a head sticking out of the flying dino’s back (like a pilot riding in a biplane), in this hack the player is riding ON its back.

Special Thanks to Spiderdave for helping fix a bug in the game. Apparently, that bug got carried over in Adventure Island 3 *gasps*.

Adventure Island IV English Translation RELEASED!

16 July 2018 9:39AM EST - Update by Zynk

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Jima IV or more popularly known as Adventure Island IV is now COMPLETELY translated in English!

Zynk tackled this project because he has a related hack in the works. He can’t use the old translation as it does not accurately translated the game. At all. Unlike the previous translation made by Demiforce, this hack translates more accurately what the characters say, especially the game masters - as they tell you what the items do instead of coaxing them to play a game with them on and on. The animal verbal tics are in the JP version, like the penguin’s -pen to HONK! Rabbit’s say PYON in JP, but what noise rabbits make? And what does the fox say?? (or was it a coyote…)

The title screen was designed like the previous NES release had, with “Hudson’s Adventure” graphic text inserted. The “Island” was painstakingly chiseled and the “IV” is retained.

Included is an extra patch where the sprite palettes are changed, making the game more colorful. Fruits now have their own palette away from the player’s sprite palette, though it shares with the dinos’ palette, but at least you can see grapes in purple, red, blue or green. Some enemies have palettes reassigned as well. Minor graphics changes for some items, namely the “flask with red liquid in it” changed to the consistent full HP restoration item from I, II, III – Milk.

Anyways, the game is playable even if the game is not translated. But please try the extra patch! Because its more colorful and more effort was put into it!! Enjoy!!!

The Quest of Lala RELEASED!

14 August 2017 10:19AM EST - Update by Zynk

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

The Quest of Lala is a complete level hack of The Adventures of Lolo. This time, the damsel in distress, Princess Lala is the protagonist and Lolo was the one kidnapped by the Devil King AKA the evil King Egger.

The levels are based on the PC game “Eggerland: Episode 0 - Quest of Rara”, but improvises were made since the NES game has limitations in displaying too many enemies and moveable blocks, and some items not available from the PC version (e.g. mirror blocks and the enemy teleportation bug). The PC game has 32 rooms, so the unreleased “Kopio levels” are present to accommodate the remaining rooms.

This hack was made with the Neptune level editor.

If anyone has a copy of the original PC freeware game, please share it!

Roll-chan World GAMEBOY - Player Sprite hack RELEASED!

26 March 2017 11:35PM EST - Update by Zynk Oxhyde

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

In commemoration of Mega Man’s 29th Anniversary and beyond!

Zynk Oxhyde previously released ROLL-CHAN for the NES! Roll-chan is a player sprite hack which replaces Mega Man with his sister Roll. Today Zynk releases FIVE new player sprite hacks, but this time for the GAMEBOY, ROLL-CHAN WORLD!

Continue the super robot girl’s adventure in saving the world against the evil Dr. Wily, the mad scientist who, once more, attempts to fulfill his ambition of world domination.

Just like before in the NES, Roll is joined by her trusty pet robot cat Tango, replacing the role of Rush the robot dog. All sprites and custom sprite arts are all done by Zynk. The player sprites are structured differently for the Gameboy so adjustments were made to accommodate the more limited tile space.

There are note worthy changes made to some sprites, i.e. Dr. Wily’s machines in Rockman World 2 are greatly improved (managed to make Wily into his normal size); some minor enemies got improved sprites (e.g. Mag Fly, Peterchy, Returning Monking). AND a new character, Quart, the future version of Roll who was kidnapped from the future and brainwashed by none other than Dr. Wily.

Fight, Roll! For everlasting peace!

Roll-chan 3 Improvement RELEASED!

10 April 2016 8:03AM EST - Update by Zynk Oxhyde

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Announcing the release of ROLL-CHAN 3 IMPROVEMENT patch.

As many Mega Man fans may know by now, Mega Man 3 was released back in 1990 for the NES. However, along with the release of the game, it was already suffering with unresolved bugs and unimplemented features that could have made the game better. After 20 years, kuja killer created a Mega Man 3 Improvement (MM3I) patch for not only the US version of the game, but also for the Japanese version. It fixed all known bugs, like the Top Spin energy drain and the mosaic in the Stage Select screen; and he added more features for the game, like the Exit command and the real-time weapon switching. After the next few years, he made it as far as supplementing the game with an introduction movie, shown here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bed6y5sX03E

With that achievement, Zynk took the time to create a Roll-chan version of the improved Mega Man 3 game. Applying the patch with the Roll-chan 3 was very simple, but with the changes made in MM3I, more hacking was needed. And with the new Intro-scene, Zynk made a Roll-chan version of it, too.

With all that, please enjoy Roll-chan 3 Improvement!

Kamen no Ninja: Akakage & Perman 1 English Translation RELEASED!

26 February 2016 7:48AM EST - Update by Zynk Oxhyde

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Another two old Famicom games translated to English by Zynk Oxhyde.

THE MASKED NINJA: AKAKAGE; and,

PERMAN: RETURN THE SAUCER!

Akakage was easy to translate because of very few text. The game was very memorable because of the anime-ish graphics and it was a very mysterious game without knowing what the things are happening. But the game was really a very linear game with not much plot. And most of the items seem incomplete and with Akakage’s sidekicks, Aokage - the quick ninja boy with the boomerang, & Shirokage - who seems to have nothing special on him. (Forgot to mention those two characters in the readme, meh)

Perman 1 is remarkably a fun platformer dabbled with some minigames that are essential to get a perfect game to make the boardgame boss battle easier to deal with. There are some stages where you can play as Booby (aka Perman#2), a monkey who has much more jumping power. Too bad you can’t play as Perko (aka Perman#3) and Peryan (aka Perman#4), however, these two play as support in the BBB section.

FOOTNOTE: There’s a translated Perman 2 by KingMike, but Perman 1 was left untranslated by some reason; really, why Perman 2 first and not Perman 1?? (And should the translation turn “Paaman” into “Perman” for the sake of correcting it?)
