Xtras NES, SNES, MDrive Custom games


Recommended Posts

For NES, SNES and Mdrive there are many custom hacks for popular games like Mario Bros, MegaMan etc.

and they are included in the Xtras sets.

Which ones do you think are good ? Which are crap ?


I want to know if the levels / maps are changed, or if it's merely gameplay/grafx changed in the custom.

I'm only interested in custom that do have their levels changed.


Furthermore, is it a good, fun and playable custom game, or is it a sadisticaly difficult and unplayable one ?

Which ones would you put on a recommended list,

and which ones would you put in the trash ?

Nice list,


I love these mods n hacks.... I have been playing a couple of these... The mario hacks are classics, Some serious time and effort has gone into making \ modding these games.


The castlevania hacks are great too but a couple only have cosmetic changes like clothing or back ground colour changes.


Some like playing a whole new game!


If you have never played one, you should give em a go and compare to the original the post your findings :).


C'mon, Lets see what people think !

i dont really play a lot of hacks but the ones i like which are not in the xtras are


splatterhouse chrome edition (pc engine)




contra hard corps enhanced edition (megadrive) no vidoes available for that one.

Splatterhouse Chrome is great.

I have it too, since it's part of the maybe-intro hack collection.

So it seems there's more then is included in Xtras even.

Being one of the main persons who recorded Xtras videos for all of these, I had the opportunity to play a little of all of them (or most).

Some are great...Many of them being complete remakes/overhauls of the original games.


-There are many many more hacks than what you see in the Xtras... We tried our best to get all the greatest ones we could find.

-There are many other hacks out there that are not included in the Xtras where only minor things have changed, such as just some small character spirits.

ex. Like, Link in Zelda, walking around with his butt crack open...or Mario running around with a kkk uniform on... :( oh brother..right?



-If they have been included in the Xtras, that means that they were a good hack or that there was something significant that made it unique and worth playing. (that's not to say there isn't more out there like this...and we know more are being made all the time)


-God... that is only a small hand full of the Super Mario World hacks I went through... there are literally hundreds more and many are crap or just EXTREMELY hard. (making them not worth playing) (side note: There was a special community just for Super Mario World hack makers, look it up)



-I personally think many many of these are great and are worth trying out... :)


-Many were found here: http://www.romhacking.net/

(if you would like to see what else they have in store)

Enjoy guys. :)

PS. If you guys ever find more good ones (like Fumanchu did), you can always post them to us and we will try to get them in for a future Xtras update. (that's how many of these got in here in the first place.)

Yes, the list is shortened by taking out all that I know is crappy, but there's still a lot of roms left.

And having lots of stuff changed isn't enough to get on my fav-list.

I want to end up with the good ones only, that are fun to play.

Good topic here grr...


I've been out of it for so long that I don't even remember the good hacks. I know there were a few that I did play for quite a while, but most of those have been purged from my memory now.


If you include every single hack that was ever made, I would think that we only covered about 5-10% of them. For instance, it's just silly how many lame SMB hacks there are out there. The "winners" of that contest for me would be "Super Bud Brothers" and "Super Afro Bros". Take a look at the Super Mario Bros zip in a goodset and you'll see what I mean.


I can say that we included close to 100% of the hacks/trans that were complete or near-complete at the time of the 1.0 release at the romhacking site. There are also a few other hack sites that we used that escape my mind right now as well. RomHacking, is just an amazing site and really did their best to only bring the best hacks available to the public, particularly for the translations.


When in doubt, you can always use the "Synopsis" feature in the Madmab Edition emus to get a brief description of what was changed in the game. Whenever there was a description available at the site about the hack/trans, it was included in the synopsis file and the reviewer was credited with the webpage url at the bottom of the synopsis entry.


Good luck,





P.S. Oh yeah... there was a hack of Dragon Warrior that I believe had "Omega" in the name that was really good. It was a completely different story about Aliens invading a futuristic world. I never played it to the end, but I got pretty far into it and was really impressed how much was changed and the quality of the storyline and text.
