Hacked/modfied games - Do you have more info?

Based on the discussion about Demoni +4DGHF , which is a hack of Warhawk with modified graphics, and what Smasher wrote about these hacks and about cracks without intros being sold in Italy. I also got word that in Spain it was done in a similar way.

Maybe you know about other countries this was common?

Also scene groups sometimes modified old games to look a bit different and published them as first releases of new (because widely unknown) games. Cycles +FT is a well known axample for this.

Maybe you know about more games where this was done?

I suspect Cryonic being a fake member

perhaps you shouldnt write it into his db entry as if it were fact - csdb isnt a diskmag.

Changing the letters from "Dari" just the way it was done with ROWLY/WORLY, I searched GB64.com for "Raid" and... BINGO!

Raid (Tronic Verlag, Ulrich Mühl):

Dari (Butterfly Productions, Stefan Vocke):

The coders initials (UM) are still visble in the intro screen of the fake "Dari".

Worked for 5 releases of some rather unknown games, but trying it on a quite well known game like Speed King was one step too much. ;) Pre-Internet times made it possible.

"Turbo Racer" was also hacked from a 1987 Tronic game into a newer date/Stefan Vocke/Butterfly Productions title.

"Joe" was identified now, too.

Once again, "Stefan Vocke" was used as the programmer, but this time he published it through "Paradise Software" and not through "Butterfly Productions". ;-)

The original can be fetched here:

BTW: there was no translation done as the original appears to be full english already.

"Kill the Saucers" (http://csdb.dk/release/?id=20318&show=trivia#trivia) is now identified as a hack of "Missioncode CX-13" (http://gb64.com/game.php?id=14909&d=18&h=0).

This means that the information on the SID (Missioncode CX-13) need to be changed in game name, composer and company now.

About Demoni, Flavioweb already said my same opinion and anyway I was focused mainly on the fact it was RARE, not an hack .... Anyway, we've also The White Ninja The White Ninja +4 [seuck] or Ninja Bros [seuck] which is an hack of Outlaws http://www.gamebase64.com/game.php?id=10981&d=18&h=0 (one of the games sold in bundle with the original SEUCK disk) ....
