P1 is at it again, this time (2nd hack) P1 chose a game with code has gone untouched since it’s release in ‘89/’90. After blowing some dust out the rom it became clear this may very well be the worlds first and only “Mendel Palace” hak! This NES era action puzzler was a personal favorite long before anyone uttered the word, “Pikachu”. The creators behind the Japanese version of this game “Quinty”, would go on to develop the largest multimedia IP juggernaut the world has ever known… Pokemon.
The art style of both games is almost identical and many of the characters could be interchangeable. The game definitely needed a fresh coat of paint. An Aesthetic that fit. A Vaporwave look for the game only made sense with the checkerboard tiles. Profound pastel and 90’s palette swaps on every single tile! P1 did this for the entire game! P1 added the standard P1 graphical mods and Easter eggs,but the frantic arcade puzzle gameplay remains the same!
Most have never played Mendel Palace, or its time for a revist, so its highly recommend checking out “Vapor” in any case. To access this extra part of the game simply hold start and select on the controller while pressing the reset button on the NES system. If Mendel Palace Vapor is enjoyable please check out the other P1 hak Blaster Basterd right here on romhacking!
PS The only thing missing P1 REALLY wanted to do was add a VaporWave CD soundtrack to the game. Maybe some day someone could help P1 with a Turbo-CD port lol!
