The Hacker - NES action platformer fully translated into English

Looking towards the NES now for the latest ROM hacks or translations, and the first one to appear is Shenzhen Nanjing Technology's action platformer ' The Hacker ', which was released in 2002 and fully translated from Chinese into English today by pacnsacdave. The information regarding this game is very sparse but according to the main site, the story revolves around a computer hacker that must go online into the virtual world in order to rescue them from an evil computer programming agency.

As noted above there isn't much known about the game other than it featuring lots of enemies, pick ups and different sections, but what we do know is in regards to the company behind the game itself. According to bootleggames, "Shenzhen Nanjing Technology Co are one of the only Famicom pirate developers known to still exist, along with Waixing. They typically rip graphics and music from other games, (and much of the time they end up being used in the wrong game, such as a remake of the Zelda theme being used as the battle theme for Saint Saiya - Time Warrior) and their games are sometimes considered to be of low quality"

-A patching program such as beat or Floating IPS  may be needed to add the hack/patch to the main NJ032 - The Hacker (C).nes Rom, which isn't available here.

  1. Is there any place that keeps an archive of all the "after the fact" original bootleg games for the Famicom/NES made in places like China, Russia, Brazil etc?
