Description

In early 1984, Nintendo granted Hudson their major licenses for use on Japanese computers. Hudson immediately began work on utilization of these, and in April of that year two sequels to Nintendo arcade games were announced. The first, a sequel to Donkey Kong 3, was recently dumped and the other, a sequel to Mario Bros. called Mario Bros. Special, has been online for years. However, the game was released across nine different computers, each version unique, and some have not been dumped. We present perhaps the most interesting one, for the MZ-1500. Released in December 1984, a few months after most other versions, and possessing unique sound and flow of gameplay, this is a very interesting port to experience. The Hitachi S1 (sometimes called the MB-S1) and Sony SMC-777 versions are still on the loose. If you have either of these versions or their roms, please contact us.

Description

Yes, there are even undumped versions of Pac-Man. This version of was released in September 1984 by Dempa Micomsoft, the company responsible for all official ports of Namco arcade games to Japanese computers. For over thirty years, it has not been publicly distributed, and thus almost no one outside of Japan has ever played it. With unique sound and flow of gameplay, this is a very interesting port to experience. It's also worth noting that Dempa handled translating Pac-Man's original vertical resolution interestingly. Whilst ports released in the US such as the 5200 port simply stretched the maze, Dempa got clever and simply turned it on its side. Most versions of Pac-Man have been dumped, however the two unpreserved versions are for the Hitachi S1 (also sometimes called the MB-S1) and the MZ-2000. If you have either of these versions or their roms, please contact us.

Description

Another Hudson Soft release of the 1984 Mahjong game, Jong-Kyo. This plays very similarly to Hudson's previous Majong game from 1983 which was included on a double disk alongside Mario Bros Special for the MZ-2200. Previously, this game was thought to be only released on MSX computers, however, that is now proven not the case. Hudson followed Jong-Kyo up with Yakyu-Kyou, a baseball game.

Description

Volguard is a horizontally scrolling shooter, created by dB Soft in the mid 1980's for several popular Japanese home computers, including the MZ-1500 and the MSX. For early 1985, this game was considered one of the most advanced of the era due to there being three background layers, fast movement of sprites, and the presence of a large boss character. It later spawned a quite popular sequel on Nintendo's Famicom simply called "Volguard II". A great game for SHUMP enthusiasts! If there are any ROMs that aren't online and we do not know about, please get in touch with us in order to preserve them.

Description

Hudson's version of Baseball is a very interesting game. You control exactly when the pitches are thrown, and after the first half there's an odd glitch where all pitches are balls. Perhaps there's a way out of it, but either way it's a bizarre programming oversight. Anyway, the MZ-1500 version contains unique sound, but the flow of gameplay differences are less noticeable here. An interesting, if confusing, piece of Hudson history that's worth trying out.

Description

Dezeni Land is an early text adventure by Hudson that was released across various computers. Unfortunately, it requires the ability to read Japanese, so most probably won't be able to enjoy it. As a result of its unplayability, differences from other versions (apart from presumably the sound) are unknown.

Description

This version of The Tower of Druaga was released in November of 1985 by Dempa Micomsoft, the company responsible for all official ports of Namco arcade games to Japanese computers. For over thirty years, it has not been publicly distributed, and thus almost no one outside of Japan has ever played it. This is one case, however, where though it's obviously great to have this version preserved, it unfortunately showcases perhaps the MZ-1500's greatest weakness: scrolling. The game plays slowly and choppily, and movement is almost predetermined (think Dempa's original ports of Dig Dug to the PC-8801 and FM-7). Some slightly simpler games scrolled fine, such as New Rally-X and Mappy (both still undumped for the MZ-1500), but Druaga's mazes and mechanics proved too complicated for the computer to handle effectively. This wasn't the porting standard of the time, and Dempa was able to do a much better job with their X1 version of the game. Regardless, it's still an interesting curiousity, and any fan of the arcade original owes it to themselves to at least try out this extremely obscure version of the game.
