An Absolute Must!

Reviewed By: banesbox on 29 Mar 2017

I made an account just to review this one hack. Ti done an absolute amazing job at hacking P.O.W for two player action. This is exactly how it should have been done back in the day. I am a huge P.O.W fan personally and was so disappointed as a kid when I bought P.O.W for the NES then realizing it was only a one player game.

Two players playing at the same time doesn’t slow the game down in anyway and the sprite flicker is no worse than the usual in the original game. Ti’s hack breathes life back into this old game that can be enjoyed by two you and a friend.

I actually deleted the original P.O.W rom and use Ti’s hack on my Raspberry Pi3.

Thanks Ti so much bro!
