    Hi all!

    I noticed some interesting Japanese homebrew stuff have flown under the radar of most people here, so I decided to create this thread.
    Links will be kept and updated in this first post as the discussion continues.

    Canyon Bomber is the best one IMO. Very addictive.

    Also, have a look:


    This is a WIP Mega Drive rendition of PCE's Darius boss rush running on real hardware.
    Hideki Konishi has already programmed 24 of the 26 bosses.
    I just hope he releases the ROM after all.

    Awesome!
    If this actually becomes available I'll definitely be one of the first in line to "test" this on my Mega Drive haha.

    Wow, never heard of any of these before. Great work! Ixion sure looks promising, but I don't think I've ever seen a game needed to play in composite more than that (with all the cloud dithering). And Darius... wow, I'd buy that for a dollar!

    Ixion doesn't play in real hardware though I recall the author doesn't know why. Probably one of those dumb things that are trivial but horribly easy to overlook (I hate those, currently dealing with one in Indigo in fact). Amusing though since it's made with SGDK (heck, I think all of these games are).

    The biggest problem with Japanese homebrew is that in general they just can't speak English (and I seem to be like the only person who can speak to both sides of the spectrum... and let's just say I'm not exactly the best when it comes to spreading homebrew). I know there's the stereotype that they don't want Westerners to try their stuff at all (probably because of a few people who get angry at about anything), but in practice at least most of them just seem to be blocked by the language barrier rather than actively trying to stay away.

    There is Fuwa Fuwa Cotton Candies,
    from Future Driver, the creator of Fix It Felix Jr and Pringles Game.

    We can also list Fix it Felix Jr and Pringles, but I believe those two were already known well on homebrew community.

    Wow, unfortunately not anymore.
    I deleted it because the game's two player only and back then I couldn't find anyone to play it with.

    Thanks for sharing, the Darius alpha one looks and sounds amazing, hope it gets released. The first too games are pretty cool as well, both very ingenious!

    Ixiom and Darius both look great. The giant, animated bosses look particularly nice.

    The bullet patterns in Ixiom look insane. Bullet hell shooter lovers should be drooling at the insanity of those.
