good evening all this my first post here actually. I just recently got back into collecting nes games after finding my collection and ihave aims to get a complete American release game collection sometime before I pass away lol.. and while talking to a few people today I was told there are people out there still making games for the nes. I am aware of hacked roms for the Zelda games and castlevania and a few others as well as reproduction carts (Japanese games that are translated for American systems). can anyone tell me whats a good place to search for and see what people have released since the death of the nes back in the 90s? thanks in advance

the games you are inquiring about are called homebrew games.

the battle kid games are the only good homebrews as far as im concerned.
i have both and they are highly suggested.

@Akashia You do realize that reproduction carts are any cart that is a copy of an original not just a translated games (although most of them are). For example

Untitled

This is a reproduction cartridge of Castlevania Bloodlines for the Genesis, which was released in NA. But due to the high prices of an original cartridge $70+ for cartridge only and up to $150 for C.I.B. a reproduction is a cheaper alternative for those who just want to play the game on original hardware but dont care about collecting so to speak.

You'd be better off buying a flash cart than bothering with reproduction cartridges. I mean it's essentially a physical version of game piracy so the only difference between it and a ROM is that you're paying someone for it. At least if you download the ROM nobody is profiting from the piracy of the ROM itself.

Yes, "reproduction" is fancy term for bootleg. Originally, they used it to describe games that couldn't be purchased, like translations and prototypes but now it just means "higher-quality bootleg". (I guess if you're into that, uh fine, but let's be honest.)

@Tasuki
If you can browse these forums you have access to a PC. And anyways I was talking more about flash carts than emulation. Of course talking about this stuff on the forums is a bit sketchy. Though I'd argue that buying and using a flash cart for classic systems is less dodgy than having someone profit from a bootleg game....

I have a coding buddy (Rychan) that's worked on a fair few GB/GBA and NES games recently.

His latest game is actually for the NES and is coming along nicely - http://socoder.net/?Topic=6213

There are lots of indies coding for the NES and while most of their games do not end up as commercial releases, there are some that do.

Rychan is working on getting his GB games onto cart. Maybe his NES games will follow.

@skywake Not necessarily. I don't have a PC yet I am able to browse these forums, it's called a smarthphone. So even if you have a flashcart, you still need to download the ROMS for it.

Most people will have access to a PC. And even if they don't and are using smart devices you can still download stuff to a micro-SD card. Unless you're Apple only and have no PC in which case how on earth do you manage the most basic tasks?
