BootlegGames Wiki

Gluk Video was a video game publisher that released many unlicensed video games and Famiclones from the early-to-mid 90s in Spain.


Gluk Video was started up as a brand for the company Photopak SA in 1992, and was set up to import unlicensed games.[1] However, the games were released in the 72-pin NES format while the clone systems were made to be compatible with NES carts instead of Famicom carts. Unlike many companies that released unlicensed NES games, the PCBs were actually 72-pin and didn't use a Famicom-to-NES adapter.[2]

Most of the games they published were unchanged from the original versions, with the exception of Thunder Warrior where the protagonist was changed to Gluk, the company mascot. They also had several brands of NES clones.[3] The NASAs were direct clones of the NES, while the YESS and Silver Shadow consoles copied the console design of the PAL SNES instead. These always came bundled with two controllers, a zapper and a multicart which contained pirated versions of official Famicom/NES games.
