Index0-BC-DE-IJ-MN-RST-Z

Excitebike[]

Risker[]

Cars replace motorcycles in Risker. The original version of the game features unhacked audio; a later revision (possibly Waixing-affiliated) completely overhauls the music.

Tip Moto[]

Tip Moto changes the controls 90 degrees (up/down are moved by left/right).

Derby[]

A title screen hack of Risker; originally only appeared on the Pro Tech XL.

Extreme Racer[]

Based on Risker, though the car is redrawn to have an open hood. Features corrupted music. Originally appeared only on Advance Bright Limited consoles.

Biky Bike[]

A somewhat odd hack that changes every single graphic in the game, but to very minuscule degrees (e.g. slightly widening the bikers). The title screen is written in plain text, similar to a common pirated copy of the original Excitebike. Game is uncredited, but likely originates from New Game Star due to similarities to their other hacks (namely the second version of On the Road).

This game is only known to appear on a Cheer-Tech 44-in-1 game set (with 76/128/5000-in-1 DIP switch variants), as well as on the Gun Fighter.


Exed Exes[]

Mission[]

Only known to exist in the post-2022 Timemax game set.


Exerion[]

Space War[]

Space War is not actually set in space.

Overlord[]

Overlord is an advanced hack.

Exfrome[]

A basic title screen hack. Exfrome's title screen uses the Joe & Mac font.

Fly By[]

Fly By has a corrupted rendition of the title screen tune. Originally appeared only on Advance Bright Limited consoles.


Nakajima Satoru: F-1 Hero 2 (Michael Andretti's World GP)[]

Dream Rapid[]

The grand prix mode has been removed and the course cannot be changed, effectively meaning that the game only has one track. Dream Rapid has only been found on the Gun Fighter. Music is intact.


F-1 Race[]

Boat Race[]

A complete graphical overhaul featuring boats racing on water. Has the "Score" meter rather humorously changed to spell "Scroe".

Boat Race Pika[]

Boat Race Pika is an alternate (possibly earlier?) version of Boat Race with Pikachus driving the boats.

UFO Race[]

A variant of Boat Race set in space with UFOs. It also has corrupted music. Often retains the "Scroe" typo, though some revisions correct it.

Bicycle Race[]

Bicycle Race completely alters the physics and completely overhauls the music. The bicyclist's top speed is much lower than the original game; slowing down (in high gear) around 35 km/h, whereas the original F-1 Race slows down around 370 km/h. Due to the slower speed, it is much more difficult to complete a lap.

Jet Sprinter[]

A basic title screen hack of Boat Race. Resembles the title hacks seen on the Pro Tech XL (with an identical font to some of them), though that console uses the Boat Race title.

Space Car Racing[]

Space Car Racing is a back-port of Race One, a JungleTac UM6578 hack of F-1 Race.

Formula 1 Racing[]

Great Racing[]

Ferrari Grand Prix Challenge (Ferrari)[]

Ultimate Speed[]

Ultimate Speed is impossible to complete because the pit road is broken after Round 1. Right after you stop, you go without tire change. This makes tires worn for the entire races.

Highpoint Life Hero Laddie[]

Highpoint Life Hero Laddie has swapped music cues, slightly modified intro graphics and a mostly pink, blue and yellow palette. It has been found on a Gemini branded 15-in-1 multicart fit for specific plug n plays manufactured by Macro Winners.


Field Combat[]

Saucer Wars[]

the music in this hack is corrupted. Originally appeared only on Advance Bright Limited consoles.

Final Mission (S.C.A.T.)[]

FU-3 Firebolt[]

Based on the Japanese version. In the original release of the game, the player character resembles Pikachu. In later revisions, however, Pikachu is replaced with a generic character; though he turns back to Pikachu in some levels, due to the CHR data not being replaced properly. The text in cutscenes is removed, the speech between levels remains intact and music is corrupted.

Martian[]

A basic title screen hack of FU-3 Firebolt.


Fire Dragon[]

Dragon[]

In one plug-'n-play, Dragon is credited to Power Joy Ltd. Some versions feature slightly different music than others.

Angling[]

Front Line[]

Hassle[]

The player character and enemies are replaced with a fox.


Galaga[]

Battle[]

In Battle, the ship has a smaller movement window than normal (cannot reach left corner), making it very difficult to play.

Galaxian[]

Gradius[]

Firmanent[]

When you get the speed-up power, you automatically get the two options (with the "Options" selector being removed from the HUD). Music appears to be made entirely from scratch.

The game has no title screen; most multicart menus title the game "Firmanent", though it has also been seen under the names "Exist" and "Space Combat".

Soceo Loier[]

Soceo Loier uses mostly original Gradius graphics but is entirely based on Firmanent. Only known to exist in the post-2022 Timemax game set.


Guevara (Guerilla War)[]

Bolide[]

The game is based on the Japanese version, but the cutscene text is translated into English in a humorous manner. The SNK copyright is intact in most versions. Che Guevara himself now appears to be (and is described as) some sort of clean-shaven generic biker character, according to the cutscenes. Some of the music is corrupted while others remain intact.


Gun-Nac[]

Star Wars[]

Based on the North American version. Level select is unlocked by default. Star Wars is unrelated to the well-known franchise of the same name. The music in these hacks are intact but some of the sound channels are removed.

A title screen hack of Star Wars, likely changed later on for copyright reasons.

Space War III[]

Space War III is another variant on Space War that automatically skips the intro cutscene.
