On the surface, it's an ...

Without Ghouls ‘n Ghosts We Wouldn't Have Sonic, Says Yuji Naka



Quote
"When I saw the code, I was impressed!'Ah, I see! That's how they're doing it! That's amazing!!'
Daimakaimura was a program that could only move 2 dots horizontally every 1/60 seconds, but if we could move that to around 16 dots, wouldn't it be a completely different game?
I got an idea and decided to make some. Then... this is really fast!
So, in the next stage, when we made the slope of Daimakaimura steeper and steeper... I noticed something.
I thought, 'Huh? If I connect these things together, they'll spin around' As a result, I was able to ..."

Wrestle War's Unauthorised Hulk Hogan Cover Got Sega Into Legal Trouble



Quote
The company was literally learning as it went along – and that sometimes meant making fairly obvious mistakes.
"I remember we were working on a game called Wrestle War, and I was walking by the artist's working area he literally had a photograph of Hulk Hogan in one hand and was painting Hogan as the cover of this game.
Mike Fischer said, "you know, I think there might be a copyright issue. I'm not sure if you're allowed to use his image."
He basically shut the door on my face.
And then, of course, we shipped it and immediately got sued.
And if you look at the UK version, they've just painted his blonde hair over with ..."

ROM Hack For Treasure's Divisive Light Crusader Makes It Easier To Play



Quote
One of the big issues with the game is that the isometric perspective can make it tricky to judge jumps, which often results in the player falling off platforms because they can't accurately see where they are in relation to one another.
Thankfully, a new ROM hack from BillyTime! Games aims to solve this issue by adding in a double-jump ability which means you can gain additional height during the platforming sections of the game.
If you've tried this new hack ...
