Maybe they thought this guy looked so “rad”, that they didn’t need to add another person. smile

Thinly disguised (bump). Just had a look through this topic for the first time in months. It’s got some great posts already and I hope to add some more soon. If anyone else wants to throw some out there it would be awesome. Some of the ‘worst’ ones on here made me laugh; Brawl Brothers with only one guy on the front cover! laugh
I think the Dark Kingdom cover is the best so far, though the Treasure Of Rudra’s is quite nice. What does everyone else think?

(above) One for the ‘best’ covers – Maka Maka – an rpg by the company Sigma, I believe the company are still in business now making phone batteries. They did a sequel of sorts called Day Of The Idea but that goes for a hefty sum. The game really is as bizarre as the cover suggests! See the pics below.

Hey Ghost, have you played Maka Maka? Is it any good? If it is, I’ll pick it up.

Hmm well I wouldn’t get it on my word alone. Look it’s not a bad game to be fair. It gets bashed a lot but there are some who can appreciate it and I’m one of the few. The plot is chaotic and if you can look past the 8-bitty graphics it does have some redeeming qualities. Aside from the standard early rpg stuff you get the chance to add/exchange people from your party throughout the game which is neat. The main protagonists and just about everyone you encounter are very trippy as you tell by the screenshots. So if you like healthy doses of Japanese weirdness in games (like me smile) this will rock your boat. Also the music is of the highest standard when you consider the graphics, the composer truly deserves credit. It’s sequel, Day of the Idea has a lot of improvements on Maka Maka but will cost you anything up to 10x’s as much – if you can find it that is, it’s quite rare even on the Jap market. I wonder if our fellow member greg has come across it?

Yes im back again with another great box cover from the vaults of Super Nintendo history. This is one box cover that Nintendo wishes they could bury but they can’t and here’s proof that even genuinely evil real-life warlords get their own SNES game. I present to you ‘Super Adolf Hitler’… oh wait no that’s wrong, the game is really called ‘Barbarossa’ and is based on the horrific conflict between the Third Reich and the Red Army. Players can choose which side they would like to represent as respective commander’s.

Props to tkbryant for his earlier post of this monstrosity. It’s so bad I’ll re-show it now.

Phalanx – the hyper speed shootout in space! Featuring some old hillbilly codger playing a banjo while what looks like a shooting star is going off in the background. Very poor.

Please feel free to add your own examples or comment on the ones already here on these first 2 pages.

Maka Maka looks so weird, I believe I recall some strange Japanese games that didn’t get release in America, one where you shoot a giant woman in the leg in a stage.. Its a shoot em up game… Gosh I forgot the name, will have to dig it up..

Yes I love the weirdness in some of these games, which brings me to your query. The game you are describing I believe is non other than Parodius, Konami’s own mocking parody of their Gradius series. Personally it’s my favorite shooter series of all time and I own all three of the games available to the Super Nintendo, none of which were released in the US which is symptomatic of the raw end gamers got who weren’t in Japan in the 90’s. Nonetheless the first Parodius got a EU release, the other two a Jpn release only. They are, in date order: Parodius Da! Nonsense, Gokujou(Ultimate) Parodius & finally Jikkyou Oshaberi(Chatting Live) Parodius. All three are incredible works of insanity and genius.

Oh yeah damn right it is. You can tell from this topic alone I adore the bizarreness in these games that was badly missing in those released to the US or EU. Seriously Parodius is completely bonkers but it doesn’t half keep your interest up and there’s so much to see on the screen. Shooters aren’t my fave genre by a long way but Parodius has no equal in terms of pure blasting fun, to me at least.

Reminds me of Baywatch, well the yummy women at least.

Won’t that bloke in the middle be roasting in the California sun with that thick jacket on? It looks like a ski-suit.

This cover is pretty trip. To keep with the bizarre theme as of late here’s the follow on game from Maka Maka, Idea no Hi (Day Of The Idea) Imagine this being approved by Ninty of America.

Yep but the thing is so many of the games we got were missing that little extra something. Take a game called Laplace no Ma or as we know it the Demon of Laplace, it’s categorized as a Psychic Horror RPG. The storyline is about an evil cult or sect that has been kidnapping and murdering young children in a 1920’s small town in Massachusetts. It’s your quest to solve the mystery. The game has references to violence, occultism, torture and is the closest thing we SNES owners have to the classic Sweet Home. Now if only someone would do an Eng.translation reproduction of that, I’d be queuing up for a block to get a shot at it.

I was reading that you can email people that do reproductions make requests for them.

Interesting you mentioned that t3tr1s. Of course a few references are always helpful but providing they are legit and get rid of bug’s etc perhaps it’s possible to get an as yet unreleased English version of something you desire.
