A basic title screen hack of Aether Kavass; originally only appeared on the Pro Tech XL.

Thunder Bird[]

Thunder Bird is a rather advanced hack. It removes the opening intro with the gong; however, it still plays the intro in full behind its title screen, resulting in the game not starting until ~10 seconds after the Start button is pressed.

Searcher[]

A title variant of Thunder Bird.


Circus Charlie[]

Conqueror[]

Conqueror replaces Circus Charlie himself with an edited sprite of Hosuke from Mitsume ga Tooru as a baby.

The original version of the hack features unaltered audio; a later revision (possibly Waixing-affiliated) completely overhauls the music.

Super Elf[]

Super Elf starts on level 7 (harder version of level 2), and crashes after beating stage 05 results red screen, probably due to programming error. All graphics are reused from Conqueror. Some versions have corrupted music while others do not.

Goodhand[]

Goodhand title screen by ryanmlinn dhgtryc

Title screen

Cats in Goodhand are replaced with Mappy. It has unmodified music. Most iterations erroneously use the same tile for painting over the road, making it effectively unplayable; though the player can technically complete a level by popping three balloons. At least one (rare) variation fixes the paint tile issue; the "fixed" version also attempts to clean up garbage tiles on the level complete screen. Mapper 0 conversion.

Street Frenzy[]

Street frenzy title screen by ryanmlinn dhgtr3y

Title screen

A variant of Goodhand; the erroneous paint tile is still present, and oddly, appears to be worsened (with the background trees effecting the road color). It changes music cues and has a new title screen using the Joe & Mac font. Originally appeared only on Advance Bright Limited consoles.

Road Battle[]

Road Battle has the DeLorean from Back to the Future on the title screen. It has a different title screen song.

City Chase is a simple title screen hack, but is otherwise unchanged from City Connection. City Chase starts to get glitchy after level 1 and is based on a cut-down version of the game.

Fish Fight[]

A variant of Lido; features swapped music cues. Originally appeared only on Advance Bright Limited consoles.

ExtremityTask[]

Based on the Japanese version. Given this, most of the dialogue has been poorly translated. Mr. Smith has been replaced with a woman called MiSa whose cutscene portrait resembles Cammy from the Street Fighter series and player sprites are reused from Emprise. All of the enemies are robots and girls in swimsuits, one of the enemies in later levels is a Mewtwo look-alike. Has only been found on a bootleg GBA cartridge with a Mulan cover and as partially overwritten graphic data on the Arcade Action II 101-in-1 ROM. Music is intact.
