Title screen of a 200-in-1 variant.

Family Sport refers to a series of 16-bit, Sunplus-based plug & plays and handheld systems. They were first released around 2008, in a form factor similar to the Nintendo Wii; they became more widespread in the mid-2010s, now in the form of various portable devices. The line of games were produced by Shenzhen Senca Technology.

Other games[]

Due to the very basic (and in some cases, very confusing) nature of the majority of these games, only the more notable titles are listed here.

  • Airborne Alien - The player falls out of a UFO, and must reach the castle at the bottom of the screen. Level 2 features giant, off-coloured brick formations of Mario and a Goomba, based on their SMB1 sprites.
  • Balloon Archer - Clone of Bloons.
  • Balloon Boy - Seemingly based on Bird Knight from the Sport Vii, which in itself is based on Nintendo's Balloon Kid/Hello Kitty World. One of the enemies is the protagonist of Nice Code's Bug Catcher.
  • Beach Volleyball - Volleyball game featuring animals. Unlike the aforementioned sport games, it uses a side perspective.
  • Bomb Chain Unlimited - Clone of the Flash game of the same name.
  • Bubble Destroyer - Clone of Pang!.
  • Build Road - Clone of Gussun Oyoyo.
  • Castle Smasher - Similar to Angry Birds, but not a direct clone.
  • Eat Bean - Based on Pac-Man (and its name is a poor translation of Pac-Man from Chinese to English), but not a direct clone.
  • Frogger - Clone of the Konami arcade game of the same name. This may actually be a licensed port, as Jungletac has released licensed Frogger plug & plays in the past, but this is unconfirmed.
  • Gold Miner - Clone of the Flash game of the same name, with very similar graphics.
  • Greedy Girl - A Snake game.
  • Hare Fighter - A simplified take on Bubble Bobble. The main character is a recolored version of Don from Don't Pull (from the arcade multigame Three Wonders), and one of the enemies is Waddle Doo from the Kirby series.
  • Hell Marksman - Clone of Twin Shot.
  • Icecream - Clone of Tapper.
  • Jumping Ball - Blocks are rapidly falling from the top of the screen. The player must get as high as possible without being crushed by the blocks.
  • Jumping Boy - Basic platformer featuring the same protagonist as Balloon Boy. Level 2 uses graphics of Lakitu's cloud from New Super Mario Bros.
  • Jumping Eggs - Clone of The Amazing Dare-Dozen.
  • Jumping Mary - Clone of Q*bert. One of the enemies appears to be a modified New Super Mario Bros. mushroom.
  • Mi Fiit, Mi Guitar, Mi Papacon - All the same Guitar Hero clone, with slightly altered title screens. Inexplicably, they all exclusively appear on one 85-in-1 console, despite being completely identical.
  • Mine - Clone of Minesweeper.
  • Open Gold Box - An entirely luck-based game where the player opens treasure chests, trying to earn as much money as possible. All four players are different colored Pebbles from The Flintstones.
  • Panda Labyrinth - Similar to Soukoban, but not a direct clone.
  • Pass Maze Road - Guide the bubble through the maze while avoiding falling into holes.
  • Pinball - A pinball game with an isometric perspective.
  • Puzzle Ball - The player must build a ramp out of a selection of pieces in order to make the ball land in the hole.
  • Rescue Pets - Clone of the "Leaf Bounce" level in the Flash game Hamtaro's Day Out. Hamtaro himself is removed, but several other Hamtaro characters remain (Bijou, Boss, Cappy, Dexter, Maxwell, Penelope, and Sandy/Stan).
  • Seize Jewelry - Clone of Donkey Kong. The playable character appears to be a modified version of Link from the Zelda series (which is most evident by his shield). The game is very ‘notorious’ for the playable characters hitbox being a bit large for the barrels, which lead to the game being sometimes unfair.
  • Star War - An action game (completely unrelated to Star Wars) where a flying robot must attack various objects in space.
  • West Cowboy - a Shooting/Dodging type game where a cowboy fights off against several characters such as Bill, ‘Ma Sim’ and Ladisa. The final character is none other than Bin Laden. You get to fight off several characters from levels before after you killed Bin Laden.
  • Numerous basic educational programs. They are almost all identical to each other in "gameplay", and are seemingly included solely to inflate the game count. They likely originated from a separate, solely educational plug & play series, and were then merged with the Family Sport series later on. One of the educational games has an incorrect word for Skateboard, which is listed as Scooter.

Trivia[]

  • Several seemingly unauthorized ports of the Family Sport games (still on Sunplus hardware) were produced by Shenzhen Niutai Technology, seen on consoles such as the "Millennium Arcade 250". Bizarrely, the Niutai ports' visuals appear to be poorly recorded off of a television (presumably from a genuine Family Sport console), with visible interference in the graphics.
  • Albeit the series was to compete with the Nintendo Wii, and had implemented its ROM into the Eittek Miwi, it had spawned into multiple handheld gaming consoles (as mentioned before) and at one point even implemented the 200-in-1 ROM on a Mini Arcade Machine supposedly manufactured by GBD.
  • Individual Android ports of many Family Sport series games were released on the Google Play store in the mid-2010s.[1][2] It is currently unknown if these releases use emulation or are recoded from scratch; though notably, the Android ports' music and sound effects use separate .wav samples. The games are run in a stretched 16:9 aspect ratio.
  • The menu interface on Family Sports-based consoles is usually divided into several "categories", such as Action, Puzzle, and Table. The sports games, along with some other more elaborate titles, are often highlighted outside of the categorized sections.
