Pokémon Gold Silver (Chinese Traditional: 神奇寶貝 金 ＆ 銀) is a platformer based on Pokemon made by an unknown developer for SNES.
You can play as two characters, Chikorita (misspelled "Chokorita") and Waninoko (Totodile). The game has a total of four stages, and then a final boss which is Mewtwo. Since the game uses the same engine as Digimon Adventure and Pocket Monster, the gameplay is identical in control and physics. Although there is a character select screen at the beginning, the player can switch between characters freely by pressing Select. Chikorita can temporarily fly by tapping A, while pressing A as Waninoko makes the screen flash and freeze nearby enemies for a short period.
Aside from enemy and character sprites, most graphics appear to be stolen from various sources. Among the more obvious is the background of Level 2 being taken from the intro of Seiken Densetsu 3, and the entire fourth and final stage being copied from the second level of Pocket Monster II. Some of the enemies including the Butterfree, Pidgeot and Oddish sprites are also directly from Pocket Monster II, which could mean the game shared the same developers.
- The Chikorita sprite also appears, albeit in 8-bit form, in Pocket Monsters Crystal for GBC. What connection this signifies in not known.
- Togepi makes a single appearance in the last level.
- Levels 3 and 4 can be finished within a matter of seconds by using Chikorita's flying ability to go right to the top left of the screen of both levels.
- Certain parts of each level have strange glitchy SFX that repeat over and over for a short amount of time. Strangely enough, something very similar to this happens in Panda World (NES) which is a hack of Pocket Monster (NES).
- The music is taken from the SNES version of A Bug's Life, suggesting DVS Electronic Co. made it.
- This game is unforgiving in terms of difficulty.
