After my shopping in China, I thought it would be good to do a little update on all informal productions Megadrive Made in Taiwan. While some of these cartridges have been translated and republished (Begard Prince, Legend of Wukong…), others are a little obscure. Some have not even been to Dumpées ROM format emulator and the originals are relatively hard to find and often expensive. I own just one of these original productions but I'm trying to address here a maximum of them, including those who are not in my possession.
First of all I want to say one thing, I will not discuss in this post the multitude of Bootlegs (pirates games) based on hacks from China, Taiwan and Russia in recent years such as Sonic 6, Mario Bros or the Lion King 2 and 3. Here it will question original titles unlicensed SEGA but out in Taiwan during the period of marketing the console in years 90. The shade may be thin for many of you, but its importance. Among the genres represented in these productions include RPGs, strategy games, of Shoot'em Up, action games and fight, of puzzle games, of Board Games, Mahjong course, etc.… oddly, the least represented is the Platform. This list is not exhaustive, there are still games to reference (often mahjong).
I will not specify either the games for each year of release, nor the publisher because it is the big bazaar (some games have names different vendors when in fact the same box would cause…). Finally, I would not approach either in this post productions Famicom and Game Boy, many-they also Taiwan (article would be too long otherwise).
RPG – TRPG – Strategy
Avec les boardgames et les jeux de Mahjong, ll s'agit sûrement the genre le plus Represent dans les productions Taiwanaises.
The best known of these are Taiwanese RPG Beggar Prince, Legend of Wukong (traduit a reedit one quantites Limitée couple Super Fighter Team) and Brave Battle Saga (great RPG with stunning graphics, traduit en anglais récement). However there is still a lot of really unknown or inaccessible damn good songs and totally deserve the same treatment that, voyez vous même.
The game was translated into English :
Sān Guó Zhì V – 三国志5 (SRPG)
It is a spiritual sequel to Raiden. and the game, unusual, to sell therefore still quite expensive on ebay. There are two versions, one with a cartridge euro size, the other in Japanese Format. As often happens with these type of production, I do not know if the game had a record.
Combat – Beat’em All
The Battle of the Red Cliffs / Warriors of Fate – Three Kingdoms Huoshaochibi
Yang Warrior Family – Legend
Comparatif entre la version originale et la réedition Li-Cheng :
Les écrans titres sont différents, la version Li-Cheng à droite est sans copyright :
Action – Reflexion
Il existe une version Coréenne :
Super Bubble Bobble
A very original and fun to play graphically very successful creation based on the concept of Bubble Bobble he resume a character (but also retouve Doraemon, Crayon Shin Chan Personal playable…).
Le jeu ressemble beaucoup à Zombie Hate My Neighbours, One meme Chinois avec.
Board Games – Chance
Taiwan Tycoon – 台湾大亨
Chinese Chess – 中国象棋
Pretty Girl Mahjongg
十三 张 麻将 -98 美 少女 – 13 Jong
麻将 情人 - 姬 麻将 之 Ma Jiang Qing Ren Zhi Ji Ma Jiang
To close this ticket, Sachez que Taiwan, très bien que prolifique, I fut pas le seul au monde à endroit produire des jeux sans license SEGA. Les Etats Unis (with a flopped games to content “Christian”, ou encore the fameux “Action 52” par exemple), the Corée du Sud (surtout sur Master System), The Argentine et le Japon (Divine Sealing) produits ont aussi des titres originaux sans licenses.
