thanks! i've seen that one before but the ID was cut off. i wonder if Pokemon Sapphire/Carbuncle is based on the same engine? (especially since it seems to have been the next release sequentially)

Not to mention that Pokemon Sapphire has a ROM header of "ROBOT WAR v3.0".

Found another one buried in some email pics :) Doesn't say ST at the beginning though, just the numbers.

Not sure if it has much relevance here but I just realised that Donkey Kong 5 may be a hacked version of Super Mario Bros. Deluxe. The level designs are identical (obviously) and the save select and map screens look the same from what I remember of SMBD. Then again, not really that surprising considering that Sintax was involved. :P

i'm not sure, it does look like a very close copy design-wise, but the physics seem off to me.

btw i dunno if people have seen this already but NusuttoSan mentioned yet another variation on that game in the comments on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru9V6fLk8fs

All they did was change the intro, title (which features Greymon from Digital Monsters 3 and the T-Rex from Jurassic Boy 2) and graphics. Your "titful" (Sintax's word, not mine) hero is Bub from Bubble Bobble, who can evolve into...Agumon. Yep. Story involves the hero's sister being kidnapped during a storm or something. Level 4-2 has a WAY TOO DARK palette...

Good point. Then again, they could've done what Yong Yong did (with Rockman 8) and change the engine. :P

completely unrelated but i just found what Little Taichi is based on, a Taiwanese cartoon:
http://www.magicplay-ent.com/taichikid.htm
Gamtec even had a PC game in development based on it (and I guess theirs might have actually been licensed, with them being in Taiwan too). but I don't think it ever came out.

edit: actually Sintax's game was licensed too! its on the official site:
http://www.taichikid.com.tw/
merchandise page: http://www.taichikid.com.tw/series/series01.htm

so Sintax actually did have the rights to make one of their games. who knew.

For that Little Taichi game, wasn't that made in 2008? :huh: (That's as far as I can tell from the text from the website at least)

where'd you see 2008? AFAIK its one of their older ones. probably from around 2002 or something.
