    i have seen some Gmae and Watch ROMS (or so they say when they really are just simulators) circluating on the internet now i was wondering;
    is it possible to take these 'ROMs/Simulations' and turn them into .nds files so they are playable on my R4?


    (P.S i am one for classics! [​IMG] )

    There was an official game and watch title although it never hit proper retail (nintendo club only release) so it is in there with the XXXX titles:

    There were also some added as easter eggs in DS Rakubiki Jiten

    There are also several GBA, GB and GBC releases for game and watch ports/remakes/"spiritual" sequels.

    Homebrew, there have been one or two games.
    Oil Panic DS:

    A mario game:

    A remake of Snoopy Tennis would be amazing ... I still have my original from 1982 ... but, knowing modern developers, it would just be turned into a Sega Superstars Tennis knock-off ...

    I'd like to see Life Boat emulated or remade [​IMG] I still have this Game and Watch dual screen, but the little battery cover has gone missing [​IMG] only holding batteries in now with cardboard pieces and tape.
