Energy - Flawed PC Engine game gets improvements and an English translation

VizionGamer is on the ball again as he has once again informed us of a new English translation and game improvement that has been released via the Romhacking website. Today however isn't one of the best games we've ever mentioned on the PC Engine, nor is it particularly loved as it is the rather flawed game ' Energy ', which was released way back in 1988 by Quasar Soft that has a character that fights mutants released all over Tokyo. The game featured a long intro, poor graphics, very slow speed scrolling and not the best of controls.Thankfully this has been improved some what by cabbage and onionzoo to make it a far more enjoyable game.

Now as we said before this was a flawed game, but thanks to the team behind this release the game certainly sounds like it could be worth re-visiting, as not only is the game now in full English, but they have improved the graphics and audio quality, made the text prints faster, tap buttons to proceed to the end of a text box, far improved the scrolling speed ( This was bad in the original ), and the intro only plays once if you die or reset. So as Romhacking says "Hopefully some folks who were put off by it before can now complete and perhaps even find some enjoyment from this infamous HuCARD game."

A patching program such as beat or Floating IPS  may be needed to add the hack/patch to the main Energy (Japan).pce file, which isn't available here.
