Bio Hazard (also called 生化危机 or "Resident Evil" in Chinese) is a NES/Famicom pirate made by Waixing in 2003 based on Resident Evil for the PlayStation. The plot follows the original game scripts, although just Jill is a playable character and the game is in Chinese.

This game impresses because of the details. The beginning of the game brings the introduction of Resident Evil 1, originally on video, but here adapted to sprites. on the title screen it is possible to start a new game and load a saved game from the four slots available for saving.

As in most games from Waixing, the sounds of the game are annoying and doesn't have anything related with the Resident Evil series. The menu can be accessed by pushing Start and it is perfectly functional, after getting the map, a "map" button on the menu will become available.

To save the game, you just need to grab the ink ribbon and go to the typewriter. The battle system and many sprites were based on the system of Resident Evil Gaiden for GameBoy Color.


  • There are two ROMs available; one of them freezes and makes the gameplay almost impossible in most emulators, but the second one (extracted from a WXN pack) doesn't freeze and works only in selected emulators. Also, the original cartridge doesn't have many bugs and the gameplay is completely viable.
  • A Zapper or a generic pistol can be used to shoot the enemies during the battle screen.
  • Unlike the original game, this port removes the Black Widow and Giant Snake boss battles. However, the Plant 42 boss is intact.
