I love stuff like this 🙂
Chris Beaumont has hacked the NES version of Wheel of Fortune for the Nintendo Entertainment System to replace the out-of-date questions with a more modern batch.
People have of course done this before for other titles on different platforms (updating teams in Pro Evolution Soccer 6 on the PS2, etc), and it makes so much sense if the game engine still holds up.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it (or rather… just update it).
I’m a sucker for most things NES-related as it’s the first games console I ever owned. I enjoy touchscreen gaming to an extent although it remains heavily dependent on the type of game and how effectively the developers have implemented the controls.
I might not have to worry about all that much longer… as I’ve ordered an NES30 bluetooth gamepad! There’s a pretty comprehensive review of the NES30 over at gameusagi.com. It looks great and if it enables me to play games on my iPad, Android Nexus 7 and the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 later on this year (!) then it’ll be well worth the investment.
Once it arrives I’ll do a review.
