FANDOM


These hacks usually change most/all of the graphics, and may modify the music slightly. Later hacks fully replaced the music with brand-new tracks. Inventor is only explicitly credited in a small number of these, so the extent of its involvement is unknown. Some more notes about the listing:

  • Any games with extensive amounts of Japanese text have been translated into English.
  • Many games feature a specific, generic character who resembles a cute-ified Ninja Turtle. For consistency, it will be referred to as "Conte" in the listing (after the game "Conte Enegy").
  • There are many "alternate" versions of preexisting Inventor hacks that only modify the music and colors; these have not been documented here.
