    Its a bootleg.

    It appeared on ebay a few years back, its 100% unofficial.

    Looks to be Kirby's Adventure running on an emulator or something.

    It's definitely a bootleg/pirate copy judging from the cartridge pictures. On the last screenshot it looks actually a lot like Kirby's Adventure on NES. (Since most pirated GBA cartridges have some kind of hacked NES games on them this isn't as unlikely as I first thought.)

    Dump it, it'd be pretty amusing to finally have a ROM of this one.

    So im curious is it something probably made in china, cause it is interesting it boots this kirby star thing and then yes it does start kirby adventure. ill try to record a video of it. it seems like its some sort of homemade job cause the case is like cracked open and stuff. its probable not worth any money right?

    Here's most of what's known about it. It's been flying around for awhile, but no one who knows how to dump cartridges has ever gotten their hands on it as far as I know, so most people have never seen what's actually on it. I doubt it's worth any money beyond attempting to scam someone into thinking it's a real Kirby game.

    well i dumped the rom last night and it seems to work good, its strange cause the roms name is "POCKETNES_PNES00.gba" and its 32MB in size. the rom played good on visualboy advance 1.7.2 emulator. heres a video of the gameplay, along with some more pictures.

    Thanks for the details on it, but you should remove either the video or the link in your description as this is against GBAtemp's rules. [​IMG]

    edit: Oh and btw, the name isn't strange because it apparently is a custom version of PocketNES, which is a NES emulator for the GBA.

    I've got this somewhere, spotted it on ebay about 4 or 5 years and knew it was a bootleg but I had an interest in stuff like that at the time. Looked it up and found a site talking about it, how it was a definite fake but they didn't know what it actually was. My burning curiosity was enough for me to pay the $5 or whatever it was, photographed everything, wrote a bit about what happened when you booted the game and sent it to the site in question. The box looked great, the manual seemed to just be a pointless copy and paste of the blurb from the back of several kirby games.

    Probably made by someone who found a problem with Nightmare in Dreamland.


    Kirby music is bangin' though.

    Apparently they are, as there are some included in the various GoodSets out there (including things like "100-in-1" etc.).
