Are you Gadget enough? You’ll have to shoot fast to get out of this Light Gun game alive!

Wowsers! It’s the most dangerous case yet for Inspector Gadget, the accident-prone, half-mechanical secret agent with a knack for getting into trouble. Secretly, his clever niece Penny and her dog Brain also have a knack for getting Gadget out of trouble. But now Penny’s been kidnapped by the evil Dr. Claw!

It’s your chance to prove you’re a sharp-shooting secret agent by helping Inspector Gadget find the five diamonds that will pay his niece’s ransom. You’ll use your Zapper Light Gun to blow away anything in your way. But even with the Zapper, this case will be hard to crack. You’ll have to think fast and shoot even faster, because the evil organization MAD (Mean and Dirty) is on your case too.

Ferocious monsters, diving airplanes, speeding cars and hungry man-eating sharks will stop at nothing to prevent you from getting to the diamonds. You only have 24 hours to find them, and you’ll travel the world across four deadly stages - City, Air, Sea and Jungle - before facing off with the legendary Zulie monster. You’ll get information from Chief Quimby and Brain. If you’re really a world-class secret agent, you’ll save Penny and finally unmask Dr. Claw! Think you’re a sharp shooter? Because if you’re not, it’s curtains for you in this quick-on-the-trigger Nintendo Light Gun Game!

This is a graphics hack of Gumshoe for the NES. Stevenson has been replaced with Inspector Gadget. There is a new title screen. Penny, Brain, Chief Quimby, Dr. Claw, Madcat, and three MAD Agents will appear in a complete playthrough.

Inspector Gadget was an animated series from DiC Entertainment, created by Andy Heyward, Jean Chalopin and Bruno Bianchi, and starring the voice of Don Adams. It premiered on September 12, 1983.

Bomber Man 83: Eric and the Floaters

This ROMhack is a demake, restoring the earlier artwork and characters from the 1983 and 1984 MSX games. The player character is once again Eric, in his suspenders and hat. The different enemies are now all variations on the Floater enemies, with the different faces the Floaters had originally.

Most people first encountered Hudson Soft’s Bomberman in his 1985 NES/Famicom game. But there was an earlier, forgotten version of Bomber Man for home computers in 1983. The MSX and ZX Spectrum versions were localized in Europe as Eric and the Floaters, due to concerns over the title of the game being associated with terrorism. This was followed by a first-person sequel, 3D Bomberman, in 1984.

These versions looked very different, with 1-bit sprites. Eric is a man in suspenders and a feathered hat. There is only one enemy, a balloon who has several different facial expressions, and will become agitated and unpredictable. Exits can be destroyed, causing four more enemies to appear. The game is endless.

For the NES/Famicom, Bomberman was redesigned to resemble an enemy from Hudson’s popular Famicom/NES version of Lode Runner. In NES Bomberman’s ending, he transforms into the Mario-inspired Lode Runner character, with a plug for that game.

The NES Bomberman -apparently coded in one 72-hour session- has some gameplay differences from the 1983 Bomber Man, but it’s certainly an iteration on the same game.

The character graphics are nearly unchanged from MSX, albeit with some tweaks. Walking animations for Eric and the Floaters are three frames here instead of two, so there’s some extra animation. Death scenes are one frame shorter. Eric has slightly less colors, and the Floaters have more, with white eye/teeth highlights and a dark outline.

The exits and rare collectible treasures are from the MSX games. The font is the 1983 font, and the fancy new title screen is based closely on 1984’s 3D Bomberman.

You play a man who is trapped inside a maze. Place your time bombs wisely to defeat the balloon monsters. If the balloon monsters get caught up in an exploding time bomb, they will pop and disappear. Don’t let them get you, and don’t blow yourself up. You can break down weaker walls with your time bombs. These walls can hide treasures and exit doors. Pick up treasure to receive bonus points. Defeat all the monsters on the screen and find the exit to proceed to the next stage.



A Nice Tribute to Bomber Man's Humble Beginnings
Reviewed By: JoshWood99 on 15 May 2022

I’ve never played the original Eric and the Floaters, and although I’m not a die-hard Bomber Man fan, I still quite enjoy the series. This hack sets out to recreate the original 1983 Bomber Man experience, and succeeds in doing so in a tasteful and faithful way. The screenshots basically tell you everything you need to know, and you probably can already tell by looking at them if this is your cup of tea or not. So if this IS your cup of tea, then do yourself a favor and download this hack right away! One last thing: although Bomber Man 2 is an original release for the NES and thus never used this graphical style, I’d still love to see it get an Eric and the Floaters facelift as well, as I think playing battle mode with this artstyle would be neat. Make it happen!

This Nintendo ROM hack is based on the unfinished cult animated film The Thief and the Cobbler, as written and directed by three-time Academy Award winning animator Richard Williams (animation director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, author of The Animator's Survival Kit).

Select one of four characters - the nameless Thief, Tack the Cobbler, Chief Roofless of the forty Brigands, and Princess Yum Yum - for a side-scrolling fantasy adventure across seven worlds and twenty stages.

Pick up and throw items, enemies and bombs in a world where anything can become your weapon.

Face off against the evil Grand Vizier, Zig Zag, and his henchmen Goblet, Gopher, Tickle and Slap. Meet the mad and holy old Witch of the desert mountain, who will both help and harm you. Watch out for dangerous creatures, including the vulture Phido and the deadly doggie Kuriboss.

Retrieve the legendary golden balls, defeat the evil warlord One Eye, and save the Golden City!
_________________________________________________________

It is written among the limitless constellations of the celestial heavens, and in the depths of the emerald seas, and upon every grain of sand in the vast deserts, that the world which w e see is an outward and visible dream, of an inward and invisible reality ... Once upon a time there was a golden city. In the centre of the golden city, atop the tallest minaret, were three golden balls. The ancients had prophesied that if the three golden balls were ever taken away, harmony would yield to discord, and the city would fall to destruction and death. But... the mystics had also foretold that the city might be saved by the simplest soul with the smallest and simplest of things. In the city there dwelt a lowly shoemaker, who was known as Tack the Cobbler. Also in the city ... existed a Thief, who shall be ... nameless.
_________________________________________________________

This is a complete graphics hack. Most background graphics are tweaked, and almost all enemy and character graphics have been redrawn. More elements of the world are animated than in the original game. Characters from the film "The Thief and the Cobbler" appear, of course. Most minor enemies are now based on real-world animals. The title screen is redone. Cards announcing which World you're on now feature King Nod or Zigzag (for World 7). The ending features artwork adapted from the movie's actual storyboards.

Some changes have also been made to the levels. These changes are not huge. It is mostly the same game, but there are enough changes throughout to keep you on your toes, and be a somewhat different experience. This is also optional - an alternate patch without these changes is included.

This is the first release of this hack, and if you find any problems or issues, please contact the creator directly rather than writing a review about it.

Jate asks:
I'm translating the title screen of the game Ducktales to Spanish, I have all the graphics edited but I need to move the head of Scrooge McDuck and I can't find the way to do it.

Could you help me?

Thanks.
I believe the sprite values for Scrooge on the title screen are at 155D9 and 16CC1.

Try using the Code/Data Logger in FCEUX. Reset the log and run it very briefly when the sprites you need are onscreen and changing. Then pause it and look for blue areas in the hex code editor.

The world’s favorite Rag Dolly comes to your Nintendo system in an exciting and challenging video game adventure. Join beloved children’s characters Raggedy Ann and Andy and their friends for twelve stages of fun. Take on pirates and monsters on the high seas. Explore the frozen ice caves of Looney Land. Travel through the sky to take on the voracious Greedy. Battle King Koo Koo in the haunted forest. Venture into the mysterious and maze-like hidden castle. But watch out! General D, the personification of death and destruction, has clouded everything with darkness. You’ll need to rescue your friends, and even fight some of them until they come to their senses. It’s a magical adventure you won’t soon forget!

Raggedy Ann is a character created by American writer and artist Johnny Gruelle (1880–1938). Raggedy Ann is a rag doll with red yarn for hair, a triangle nose and a candy heart that says “I Love You.” The character was created in 1915 as a doll, and introduced to the public in the 1918 book Raggedy Ann Stories. Her brother, Raggedy Andy, was introduced by 1920. A 1977 animated film directed by Richard Williams and a 1986 Broadway musical featured songs by Joe Raposo.

This hack was created by filmmaker and artist Garrett Gilchrist, who restored the 1977 film Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure for web release. Half the graphics were designed by Brooklyn Williams, of the Raggedy Ann Revival Effort, which seeks to revive the obscure 1986 Broadway musical “Rag Dolly.” Both projects featured songs by Joe Raposo.
