This page list hacks developed (or believed to be developed) by Cube Technology.

Observations[]

General[]

  • Several games feature a copyright credited to "Winners"; this may be referring to the hardware manufacturer Macro Winners, or could just be an alternate name for Cube Technology itself.

VT02 games[]

  • Numerous VT02 hacks were developed by Cube Technology; however, the large majority of them are merely slight variants of preexisting Inventor hacks or official Famicom/NES games. For more information on the Inventor-based hacks, see Inventor/List of hacks.
    • Likely due to their similarities, a few Cube Tech VT02 hacks often appear alongside the proper Inventor releases in plug & plays (particularly UU Weapon and Gear Master).
  • The VT02 hacks actually postdate the VT03 versions, with two VT02 titles (Bombjack and Flying Bomber) being back-conversions of the VT03 games.

VT03 games[]

  • The games only seem to have originally been included on a "Game Sporz" series of sport-themed plug & plays. A few later devices also feature the hacks, including a "Ritmix RZX-13G" handheld distributed in Russia. Additionally, a handful of the VT03 hacks are mixed in with the VT368 games on handheld devices.
  • Music and sound effects are left intact unless otherwise mentioned.
  • Several of the hacks listed here have not been found on any consoles so far. Their descriptions are inferred from screenshots on an old Cube Technology website.
  • A few systems (such as the Multicade 230) rename the hacks to their original unhacked game's titles for unknown reasons.

VT368 games[]

  • Most, if not all, of the VT368 hacks feature both a standard version and one that doubles the screen resolution. The upscaled hacks are found on plug 'n plays, with the standard ones being featured on handhelds.
    • The larger-resolution variants are very difficult to find, and are only known to be featured on three systems - the Interactive TV Shooting Game, the DreamGEAR Wireless Video Game Station (200-in-1), and a specific variant of the MiWi (BS-9800).
  • Every hack changes the music and sound effects to be sampled from royalty-free sources. They are slightly faster and higher-pitched in the upscaled versions.
  • The amount of lives in each game is increased, and is sometimes infinite.
  • Inexplicably, the ability to pause is removed in every game.
  • All VT368 hacks (except for Dual Hoopers) completely remove the title screen; the first option on the respective game's selection menu is automatically chosen, with the others inaccessible.
  • On plug 'n plays, the 1P and 2P controls are combined into one joystick. While the 2P modes aren't accessible anyway, this allows games like Bananas (Gyromite hack) to work with more standard controls.

VT02 games, minor variants[]

These hacks only change incredibly minor details, such as slightly changing the colors and altering copyright dates (usually to read 2007 or 2008). The majority of the games have their title screen logos blacked out, with a few exceptions. Games which do not appear to have any alterations whatsoever, or which literally only remove the title logo, are not listed.
