Are there any Vs Arcade homebrew games?

Post by Goose2k » Sat Nov 28, 2020 11:23 am

Is anyone aware of any homebrew titles for the Nintendo Vs Unisystem/Dualsystem Arcade?

I am working on a port of From Below to the system, and I *think* it may have the distiction of being the first game for the system since 1989! (Need to double check the last commercial release but you get the idea)

I want to verify that though before I start saying so publicly :lol:

As far as I know, the only things written for the Vs. System since the commercial lifetime have been my characterization ROMs.

I remember someone asking miau (morphcat) to port Micro Mages - because of the 4 player mode - but I don't think anything came of that.

There've been any homebrew ported to the PC10 because it's enough more similar to the NES, I suppose.

What are your characterization roms? Are they available?

I've never seen the player choice roms out there. Do you know where I can find them?

Various tests to determine and/or verify behavior by the machine. They're linked from our wiki Vs. System page in the "See also" section.
