The Adventures of Bayou Billy

Nintendo Entertainment System

Game Description:

The Adventures of Bayou Billy is one of the most notorious NES games for being almost impossible to beat. As such the game can be considered broken and/or not enjoyable. What’s more interesting is that the Japanese version of the game, Mad City, is much much easier and such can be considered a balanced and fun game to play. Why Konami? Why?

Anyhow, the game is a blatant rip-off of Crocodile Dundee and a combination of many different sub-genres of action games. You’ve got your standard Final Fight like beat ‘em up, your action driving game and a light gun SHMUP. It’s got a lot of variety.

Translation Description:

This is complete translation patch for Mad City, the Japanese version of Bayou Billy. The game is much easier and features more content than its American counterpart. It’s near perfect, so enjoy.

For the American version, the Quiz mode and 3 more endings were removed. With this patch, you’ll be able to experience the full game.

What a difference!

Reviewed By: NesDraug on 07 Aug 2019

I always loved the music in Adventures of Bayou Billy and hated the gameplay. So frustrating. So hard. Takes forever to just knock down one guy.

It just baffles me that Konami would release a game that’s HARDER outside of Japan. This translation makes the game playable and enjoyable. Still hard. But challenging hard. Not impossible.
