Mountain Challenge by Trax

From Trax, the author of the Contra hack Revenge of the Red Falcon, comes an early Christmas present: a nifty Contra hack titled Mountain Challenge. It’s short, but sweet.

Zelda Tech 3.4

Since the Zelda Tech section of the website is defunct and disused, and this part of the site is a lot easier to update, I’ll go ahead and put this here. A minor update of Zelda Tech with two fewer bugs. :/ Zelda Tech 3.4 For completeness, I’ll link to the other downloads here as […]

Metroid: Wavy-Ice

I’ve decided to share my simple Wavy-Ice hack. It allows the player to combine the wave beam and ice beam in Metroid. Note that this only works on a ROM expanded by Editroid 2.1.
