This is something that I have not mentioned yet but actually its one of the coolest things about playing games on an emulator. Of course its great fun playing games on your PC that were meant for different consoles. Its also great fun playing old games that are no longer available on current consoles. However, by far the best thing about emulators is that you can play modified games that you simply cannot play anywhere else. In fact, some of these games don’t officially exist anywhere else. This is really cool as you can imagine.
Pokemon Ruby – the modified version
This is the perfect example of a game that has been modified specifically for a ROM emulator. Pokemon Ruby is a popular game that was produced and sold for the Nintendo and the Game Boy Advanced. The game was first released back in 2002 when it came out in Japan. So it is a pretty old game anyway, and it had fantastic game play. In fact its one of those games that should, and hopefully will, live on forever.
However, there were some things about the game that were not that great, and maybe because of this, or maybe just for the pure entertainment value, someone decided to “hack” the game and release a custom version in the form of a ROM image, made for the emulator.
The hacked version of the game was named Pokemon Jupiter and it was produced in 2008 and subsequently released in 2009 by Corvus of the Black Night. This is the “online handle” of a Poke Community member and the person who is responsible for this amazing game.
Pokemon Jupiter ROM is essentially a combination of the original Pokemon series and the Golden Sun series. The Golden Sun series were known for involving a lot of tactical game play and required advanced gaming skills, to say the least. Equally, the original Pokemon series also made the original game-play a lot more challenging.decent tactical games that require advanced skills. Meanwhile, the original Pokemon series accentuate certain aspects of the same game and make them more challenging.
The Jupiter game hack featured a full texture redesign as well, so the game had a completely new look and feel, as well as some cool new in-game features and amazing game-play.
Overall it pretty much felt like you were playing a brand new game, but at the same time it had all of the cool story-line and the addictive game-play of the original Pokemon Ruby game.
I can only recommend that you download a Nintendo emulator and get yourself a copy of this game to try it out. It is a must if you have ever played the original game and even if you haven’t its a great game in its own right, and well worth a short.
