    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.

    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)
  • Games
    The given name for this game was a translated name. The original name attached to the rom file and found elsewhere as the name for this game was not included except in the translation notes of which rom to use. I have made the rom name the primary name and the translated one the "alternative" name. I do believe that should be how it is. :)

Dynamite Headdy

Sega Genesis

Game Description:

This game oozes quirky from every pore. That’s certainly what I took from it after the credits had rolled. Dynamite Headdy is injected with that nonsensical asian flavour that defies description.

You play as Headdy, a puppet who has escaped from the clutches of Dark Demon, with a physique very much like Rayman and it is up to you to defeat him for woefully obvious reasons.

Gameplay revolves around shooting your head at things to climb around and beat up enemies with various powerups abound which grant your head different abilities.

A credit to the diversity of this game, a series of powerups are used in what amounts to a shoot ‘em up series of levels. Also present is a basketball minigame where you bounce balls into the nets with your head.

Very tight controls, colourful, whacky presentation, and solid platforming make Dynamite Headdy among my favourite Genesis titles. Rock on.

Translation Description:

Dynamite Headdy was one of those great games that unfortunately went through a process known as “localization”. Nearly all the dialogue was removed, and what little remained was changed. Furthermore, many of the graphics were modified and this already challenging game had its difficulty level pumped up significantly.

Now you can play the original version of one of Treasure’s truly innovative games, in English.
