If you’re thinking about playing this game, don’t. I usually try not to say anything terribly bad about non-DBZ games on the site, because the people who translated it (usually) put a lot of effort into it. However, this game is just bad.
You are a large, 8pixel x 16 pixel red, white, and blue blob that can be Optimus Prime, or Inferno. I’m not really sure. And there’s lot’s of stuff zipping around the screen, and it all shoots at you, and it all can kill you in one hit. You hear the same damn song through the whole game. Many of the levels are palette swaps of the previous level. THREE of the bosses you’ll fight are nothing more than a giant Decepticon symbol. (Yes, kids. Before there were Predicons, there were Decepticons. And they’d kick the Predicons’ asses in). But the best part is, if you’re patient enough to play this game for more than five minutes, there’s some kind of an infinite loop in Stage 9. You get to the end … and instead of fighting a boss (which is probably just another giant Decepticon symbol), you get whisked back to the beginning of the stage. Kinda remniscient of many old Atari games that never end. Anyway, play this horrible, horrible game at your own risk.
May 18, 2007 Addendum: Spinner 8’s Addendum Patch was released May 12, 2007 and fixes emulator related problems. This is an unofficial addendum patch. It should be applied on top of an already patched ROM.
This game used to be at Complete status, but it’s now been discovered that there is text at the end of the game, and it’s in Japanese. So no completion yet. If you want to get past stage 9, freeze address $006A to 17 or 18 or something on the title screen in Nesten, and then turn it off after hitting Start. Or something like that. I don’t wanna try it out.
