Elfland is an unlicensed Famicom game, made by Tip Top in 1992 and first released on a 200-in-1 multicart.

The game is an "elimination platformer" where the player goes around on a series of levels which are one screen in size with the goal being to clear each screen of enemies. However, in this game the player can only attack enemies which are the same colour as themselves. They change colour by jumping into the paint pots in the level and this can also be done to refill the paint, which depletes after attacking 3 enemies. Like in the previously mentioned games, the player can collect items by hitting the enemies again.

This game was re-released (or possibly remade) by JungleTac for their 8-bit consoles, such as the Cyber Arcade Center. Their version removes the storyline, the two player mode and changes the music and sound effects.

  • Elfland had a standalone release in 1993, lacking the Tip Top copyright.
  • On the single cartridge release the sprites are glitched from level 13 onwards. All of the graphics appear to be missing after level 22 or 23. Regions of the CHR-ROM appears to be missing or have been unintentionally corrupted for this release.
  • This is the only game credited to have been created by the company Tip Top; it is likely that this company also created the platformer City Adventure and three lightgun games (Space Fight of Gun, Fantasy of Gun, and Abyss of Gloom), which were all developed in 1992-93.
  • The game was also featured on a 20-in-1 from 1993 featuring the four games mentioned above. It is identical to the single release version of the game, except that the graphics are all present.
  • The font used for this game's ending is from Borland Turbo Pascal - this same font is also used in many NTDEC games.
