The Italian version, bundled with the Genius Star famiclone, is rebranded as Watary PC-99.

Atari Famiclone ports Nice Code Software 2000s Seen on various licensed plug & play systems. The majority of these games are now dumped, but there are a handful that are not:
  • Centipede (2600-based version; seen on a Blaze "Atari Mini Arcade" tabletop)
  • Missile Command (seen on some Basic Fun and Blaze systems)
  • Street Racer, Submarine Commander, various Activision and Imagic games (theorized to exist based on generic hacked versions, likely never released)
Bao Xiao San Guo (Jacks in Tri-Empire) Waixing 1996 [31]

[32]

Traditional Chinese version with older Waixing logo undumped. There is a restoration hack ROM file that is floating around, which may confuse people into believing that this version is already dumped.

Colosoftware Famiclone ports Unknown [33] Found on licensed plug 'n plays. Three of the five games are dumped with removed copyright information.
F-15 City War Idea-Tek 1989 Idea-Tek, AVE and Gluk Video versions are dumped (Mappers 173/79/36), but the TXC re-release (MGC-006) is not (should use Mapper 132, judging by other TXC re-releases). There is also an Australian HES release, although it is most likely identical to one of the AVE ROM versions.
F-22 Inventor 1997 Several hacked versions have been dumped, but the original release from Shanghai Paradise is undumped. It is theorized that it may feature text in the (awfully-animated) introduction cutscene.

It appears that the Tsukuda and Excalibur releases are identical, with the only differences (Excalibur logo, measurement system) being toggleable through an expansion controller. The Apollo version is more feature-complete and has not been dumped.
Magic Cube Kuk Je Academy, Sachen 1991 Features an alternate opening screen and possibly more? May not exist.
靈界護法 (Língjiè Hùfǎ, ES-1099) Waixing 1996 [34] The existing dump is a downloadable version from Waixing, yet crashes when entering the third level. One user has confirmed that one of several cartridge versions of the game suffers from the same problem. Therefore, a different version of the game, one that does not crash on the third level, needs to be dumped. Given that the existing Mapper 4 version retains a write of $02 to $5000, that version will likely be for Mapper 249.
Maxi 15 Pre-Sachen release (Australia) AVE

HES

1991 [35] The only known version of this is based on the US revision with Sachen games replaced. However, another version with them present is thought to exist, but is unconfirmed.

Puzzle Idea-Tek 1989-1990 Idea-Tek and AVE versions are dumped (Mappers 173 and 79), but the TXC re-release (MGC-007) is not (should use Mapper 132, judging by other TXC re-releases).

Tagin' Dragon Sachen 1990 [39] The dumped versions are the Sachen release titled Colorful Dragon and the Bunch Games release titled Tagin' Dragon, but as this this video shows, there must be a Sachen version titled Tagin' Dragon as well that is not dumped. It will likely be on a 72-pin cartridge.
The Centenary of Mao Zedong's Birthday (毛澤東誕辰一百週年紀念) Unknown 1993? [40]

Redump needed[]

Some games have already been dumped, but the current ROM images have been identified either as being hacked or as being corrupt in some way, necessitating them being dumped again.

Name Company Year Links Notes
Dance Y2K Hummer Team 1999-2000 Originally developed for an unreleased (?) "Hot Dance 3-in-1" multicart by ABABSoft, which also included Dragon Running and War of Strike Mouse. Available dump seems to have been created by altering one byte of code in the "Power Joy" versions of Dragon Running/War of Strike Mouse; however, the ROM lacks music, suggesting it is incomplete.
爆笑三國 (Bàoxiào Sānguó, ES-1005; rectangular upright box only) Waixing 1997 [43] All available dumps that display a copyright registration number of 970261 and a static logo have all been hacked for Mapper 15. The game originally ran on Mapper 227 (Waixing FW01 PCB). Note that the earlier version with the animated logo is completely undumped, see above.
大話西游 (Dàhuà Xīyóu a.k.a. Westward Journey, G-004) Union Bond/Mars Productions 2001 The available dump has been hacked for Mapper 15. The game originally ran on Mapper 164, can no longer save, and freezes when displaying the notebook. A restoration hack has been posted to BGC that attempts to restore the original Mapper 164 code, but that does not remove the necessity for a proper redump.
靈界護法 - Shock (Língjiè Hùfǎ , ES-1099; rectangular upright box only) Waixing 1996 All available dumps crash after finishing level 2/on entering level 3. It has been reported that this is bug was introduced by Waixing themselves in the course of some re-release, so the earlier the cartridge that is used for redumping is, the better.
梦幻之星 IV (Mènghuàn zhī Xīng IV a.k.a. Phantasy Star IV, ES-1006; rectangular upright box only) Waixing 1996 The available dump is from a mid-2000s re-release using the Waixing FS005 PCB (Mapper 176). The game ran originally on Mapper 227 (Waixing FW01 PCB).
三國志: 雄霸天下 (Sānguózhì: Xióngbà tiānxià, ES-1057; rectangular upright box only) Waixing 1998 The available dumps all come from mid-2000s re-releases that were modified to use the Waixing FS005 PCB (Mapper 176).
神密金三角 (Shénmì Jīnsānjiǎo, ES-1018; square box only) Waixing Mid-2005s The available dumps have been hacked for Mapper 4 and can no longer save. This version of the game originally ran on Mapper 176 (Waixing FS005 PCB). A restoration hack exists that attempts to restore the original Mapper 176 code, but that does not remove the necessity for a proper redump. Note that the original 1996 release, entitled 東方的傳說 Dōngfāng de Chuánshuō, does not need to be redumped.
外星戰士2 (Wàixīng Zhànshì 2, rectangular upright box only) Waixing 1996 [44] The available dumps have been hacked for Mapper 15. The game originally ran on Mapper 227 (Waixing FW01 PCB).
岳飛傳 (Yuèfēi Zhuàn, G-006) Union Bond/Mars Productions 2001 The available dump has been hacked for Mapper 15. The game originally ran on Mapper 164, can no longer save, and freezes when displaying the notebook. A restoration hack exists that attempts to restore the original Mapper 164 code, but that does not remove the necessity for a proper redump.
西楚霸王 (Xī Chǔ Bàwáng, ES-1066; rectangular upright box only) Waixing 1998 The available dumps all come from mid-2000s re-releases that were modified to use the Waixing FS005 PCB (Mapper 176).
櫻桃小丸子 (Yīngtáo Xiǎo Wánzi a.k.a. Chibi Markuko-chan, G-005) Union Bond/Mars Productions 2001 The available dump uses the correct Mapper 164, but has an exorbitant amount of NOP instructions in its bankswitching code, suggesting some kind of hack.

Waixing 2003 [106] A hack of Shi Kong Xing Shou with different copyrights, a new title screen, and a third option on the title screen that enables all in-game cheats.[1] The game is dumped on the Chinese speaking internet, but it's unknown if the ROM has been edited or if the original cartridge uses copy protection.
The King of Fighters '97 (Game Boy, original copy protected version) Unknown After 1997 [107] Mono only, but has Super Game Boy support and shows an original border when played on a Super Game Boy. A hack of Nettou King of Fighters '96 with additional characters from Nettou King of Fighters '95 believed to have been worked on by people related to Vast Fame due to graphics from this hack being buried in the ROM data of their fighting games. A cracked version of the final release by "GYY" is the common ROM for this game. A later revision of the game ripped from a multicart is also dumped. The original copy protected release is believed to look like this. Other original releases might also have the words "Game Amy" printed at the top of the cartridge shell and/or uses art from the arcade poster for King of Fighters '97 on its label.

The common ROM for the Lost Trips release is a cracked version by "GYY" that removes any copyright info from the original Gowin release.
Magic Ball (魔法球, original Gowin release) Gowin 1993 Mono only. A cracked version by "GYY" is the common ROM for this game. A version of Magic Ball ripped from a Vast Fame multicart as well as an official reprint of the game by Gowin have also been dumped. It's likely that this game had another release prior to Gowin's that remains undumped.

A later English release exists as well and was advertised on Gowin's website, but whether the game itself differs in that release is unknown.
Prince YehRude (耶魯王子, original Gowin release) Gowin 1993 [110] Mono only. A block pushing puzzle game developed in the early 90s. A cracked version by "GYY" is the common ROM for this game. A version of Prince YehRude ripped from a Vast Fame multicart as well as an official reprint of the game by Gowin have also been dumped. It's likely that this game had another release prior to Gowin's that remains undumped.

Photo Hunter UFO Soft/SuperUFO 2000 [159] [160] Bundled with a mouse that can be used as a PlayStation Mouse for other games, and for the game itself only (determined by a switch in the bottom). Includes three discs with various pictures, the third of which contains images from Pokemon series. Not mentioned on Redump's undumped games list. Discs might have been also sold separately?
Crazy Hit Disc 1 UFO Soft/SuperUFO 2000 Disc 2 (Crazy Hit 2 on title screen) was bootlegged seperately from it's peripheral, hence the known dumps (may be a reason for redump?); Disc 1 remains missing. Of note that neither games are listed on Redump's missing games list.

Refrain -Ano Yuki no Mukougawa- (Refrain ~あの雪の向こう側~) Denpa no Kandzume (電波の缶詰) 2000 [162] [163] (NSFW warning for second link) Doujin visual novel originally sold at Summer Comiket 59 (2000). Mentioned in Redump's undumped PlayStation Asian list, but contrary to Redump's listing, it appears to be a "clean" visual novel, based on the lack of R-18 tag in the dumbo001's blog.

redump.org's missing games list also lists several hentai games released for the system, namely the Hi Kounin series (developed by FSA), Kusairo no Hitomi (developed by Circle RGB, also known as Fushoku no Hitomi; romanization disputed), and Shizuku. Additional documentation of Japanese unlicensed PlayStation titles are mentioned on this compatibility list.
