I could be wrong but I think 2008 is referring to the year. If so, then wouldn't that mean Sintax outlived V.Fame?

Yeah... it doesn't seem to me like a direct hack so much as a shot-for-shot remake. Things aren't quite aligned the same on the DK5 screens as on SMB Deluxe.

And LOL at the Digimon hack version. Sintax's Engrish is brilliant.

ah, thats the website for Taichi Kid the cartoon, Sintax had nothing to do with that. they just developed the game based on it.

Oh, I was sort of wondering why the page looked more professional than Sintax's. :P How very titful of myself. :lol: BTW, looking at info on that cartoon, I'm guessing the game was made in 2002 like you said.

I just came across some Metal Slug game in an auction with a Chinese copyright registration number (the same type Waixing always seem to use) rather than a Sintax ID, so I looked it up.. and it turns out Sintax actually registered 74 of their games! its not a complete list but theres lots of stuff on there I've never heard of before. i've compiled it all here anyway:

Wait a minute... "饿狼传说/Mark Of The Wolves" released in 2003? Same one that's credited to SKOB, I wonder?

Also, "太空宝贝" (2005SR2720) has the English title "Space Baby" according to Sintax. I'd call it "Lilo & Stitch"...

ah, I missed Space Baby. thanks!

and yeah, I was wondering about that Mark of the Wolves.. could well be the same one. I have it credited to "Fiver Firm" though.

A couple of the games on that list seem to be vaguely interesting to me. The Alien VS Predator one (while unlikely) is possibly ripped off for Shenzhen Nanjing's AvP game, (Yi Xing) I think Conora 8 is supposed to be Contra 8 so that might be vaguely interesting if it isn't a cheap hack and "The Lord of the Rings-the legend of Fighter" is probably inspired by/led to the inspiration of the Mega Drive LotR game. (which is a hack of that Chinese Fighter game) What I don't get is, if Sintax is Taiwanese then why would they use Chinese registration numbers? Was it for regional releases or something?
Also, who thought it'd be a good idea to port WoW to the Game Boy? The PC game is a waste of time as it is. :lol:

I guess there's proof now that Final Fantasy Unlimited Saga is from Sintax. That's sure a hell lot of games I'll probably never see in my life :P Lots of them are probably at a Tiny Toons 3 level of rarity now.

I wonder if 新石器时代 has anything to do with Gowin's game of the same name.

well they started out in Taiwan but moved to China. Something like that anyway. But they do seem to have retained some Taiwanese connections, maybe the HQ moved to China but they kept an office in Taiwan.

If thats not just a hack of True Three Kingdoms or something i'll be very surprised :D

I dunno.. Stone Age was quite a popular online game in Taiwan AFAIK, and Gowin's game was officially licensed. Sintax's .. probably wasn't. Although Little Taichi was, so who knows.
