Heathcliff, the world’s second-favorite orange comic strip cat, stars in this hack of Konami’s Tiny Toon Adventures for NES.
Join Heathcliff as he travels through six ham-filled worlds to save his cat girlfriend Sonja from the local bully and bulldog. He’ll be helped by Iggy Nutmeg, and hindered by his rivals Cleo and Riff Raff (of the Catillac Cats), as well as the Animal Control Man, and the mysterious Garbage Ape. He’ll find pirates, ghosts, robots, star warriors, wild animals and many strange creatures!
You should realize, he can win it with you!
Heathcliff is a comic strip created by George Gately in 1973, which is currently drawn by Gately’s nephew, Peter Gallagher. Heathcliff also starred in several animated series in the 1980s, and comic books from Marvel.

Super Mario Kart - Epic Racers
07 November 2020 10:20AM EST - Update by Ok Impala!
Super Mario Kart - Epic Racers has come a long way. This ambitious project began all the way back in 2003. Starting as a direct follow-up to The Impala Battles, this mod was dubbed The Impala Courses. Later that changed to Epic Battle, and finally the name became Super Mario Kart - Epic Racers.
This mod was intended to be some sort of tribute to the Stifu Board forum. Therefore you’ll encounter members from back then. And no, Jesus himself wasn’t a member of our board, but he was a nice opposite to the dark Loki. ;-)
Work on Epic Racers started in a time when only small parts of the SMK ROM were documented. There were no other mods, and only one, very limited, editor. Step by step the complete ROM was documented. Using Lunar Compress, graphics could be extracted and changed.
Stifu started working on the graphics, while Ok Impala! painstakingly worked on changing the track designs. Initially it proved to be too complex to change the A.I., so tracks were created with the old A.I. The results were far from ideal. With the help of smkdan, Stifu started working on a new track designer to fix all the issues with track design once and for all. Epic Edit saw the light of day and was shared with the world. Meanwhile work on Epic Racers slowed down, due to life changes. In 2016 it seemed like the project was dead.
Fast forward to 2020. Ok Impala! decides to start from scratch on the track design, ditching all the ballast of the old track designs. Stifu got on board again to work on the last graphical changes. In several months, revamped tracks and graphics were created, while a lot of bugs and A.I. problems were ironed out.
So, there you have it. 17 years later, Epic Racers is finally, proudly, presented to the world. Hopefully you’ll enjoy all the work and love that went into this mod!
- 20 brand new race tracks, with unique gameplay elements!
- 4 brand new battle arena’s!
- 8 new drivers are ready to start their engines!
- New points system. Every position receives points!
- New items and probability sets!
- New course themes!
- New objects!
- New items!
- New title screen!
- New character selection screen!
- Always continue to the next race in GP mode, regardless of your position!

A New Ghibli Arcade Experience - The Secret World of Arrietty (Donkey Kong NES Hack)
06 November 2020 10:37AM EST - Update by Supergamerguy
The world of the Borrowers is a harrowing one, having to scramble for supplies and survival amidst the dangers of human “beans” and vicious animals. But Arrietty’s family is very close because of their adversity, so when Arrietty’s mom, Homily, is kidnapped by the sinister housekeeper Hara, Arrietty vows to save her mother at all costs. Arrietty must make use of her Yellow Thumbpin weapon to defeat dangerous insects in order to climb structures and rescue her mother. But be careful not to be caught by Ms. Hara’s jars as she throws them down to add you to her collection!
Almost every graphic has been changed to fit the feel of the original Ghibli movie and make you feel like a Borrower going up against immense odds. The most current version is V1.0, and is, for now, the final and definitive version in regards to graphics.

What Lies Within?
01 November 2020 12:39AM EST - Update by chillyfeez
40 years after the events of Final Fantasy IV, The Blue Planet is in a time of international peace.
The power of the crystals has faded since the departure of the second moon, and mankind is learning to establish a society based on its own skill an ingenuity. Without the Water Crystal and its connection to the moon, the world’s black mages experienced a surprising loss of power, until a renowned sorcerer discovered discovered the means to draw power from the True Moon. Without the Air Crystal, and since the passing of Cid Pollendina, airship travel has become untenable, yet a young engineer toils late at night by candlelight in pursuit of new solutions. With the loss of the Fire Crystal, the hovercraft has become nonfunctional, thus stifling international relations between Damcyan and the surrounding nations. Still, the desert kingdom has become a notable tourist destination, having cultivated appreciation of the arts, and having developed a new drink that is gaining international popularity. As the Earth Crystal’s power faded, so did the world’s chocobo sanctuaries. Frightened and threatened, the chocobos now run wild with monsters… except those found and rescued by an emerging group of caring rangers.
In spite of how difficult travel has become the world has turned to ocean travel, and seaports have emerged to connect the nations. By sea travel, mankind has managed to continue international communication and cooperation. At the heart of all this is the kingdom of Eblan. King Edge, the visionary maverick, has repurposed his country’s proclivity in ninjutsu in order to help keep peace between nations - and earn plenty of money for Eblan - with the Royal Eblana Mercenary Army (REMA). Quick, powerful and discrete, these highly trained warriors travel the world to provide defense and aid to those in need - for a price, of course. In this pursuit, a young ninja named Furio has come of age and is completing his training. He shows great promise, as well he should - he is the son of none other than Edge himself! Along with his notable skill, however, Furio has inherited his father’s attitude, and is still learning to control his impulses.
Our story opens on Furio as he completes his training and receives his first official mission: to quell a monster uprising in the nearby village of Agart. But could this seemingly routine assignment carry implications of a darker, more sinister force at play?
Final Fantasy II: A Threat from Within is an all-new chapter in the world of Final Fantasy IV (FFIIUS) - and a project many years in the making. Using the engine of FFIIUS as a base, an entirely new game has been created, starring a cast of characters ranging from familiar to brand new, and spanning locations as yet unexplored in addition to those that will feel like a return home. For those who have played Final Fantasy IV, the gameplay will feel like a familiar experience, but many new elements have been introduced, including:
- All new story
- All new characters with new battle abilities
- Enhancements to existing abilities, including weapons that cast spells with the Fight command, ninja scrolls available with the Throw command, unique rare item steals from boss monsters, upgrades to the White magic spell set - white mages aren’t just for curing anymore, an improved selection of Twincast spells available to a certain duo of wizards, and a vastly improved Salve for bards, repositioning them as extremely valuable allies in combat
- notable improvements to equipment selection, and a weapon/armor information screen to help the player understand them
- Hirable mercenary characters, offering a notable variety of gameplay experience
- “Epic Choices,” decisions the player can make during the course of the game to affect how events progress
- A “Cache” system of item storage, which mitigates the limitations of FFIV’s inventory management
- Chocobo hunting on the field, allowing the player to ride a chocobo when one is successfully caught
- Chocobo time trials, a minigame with progressive rewards
- A fully functional ATB meter, which can be toggled from the menu or during battle
- Limit skills, which offer each character an extra ability that can be the difference maker in tough situations
- And much, much more!
This is Part 1 of (probably) 4. A full playthrough will take anywhere from 4 to 10 hours, depending on the player’s tendency to tackle sidequests and enjoy the scenery.
Give it a try! If you are a fan of SNES-era Final Fantasy, you will not be disappointed. Discussion topics are available on the RHDN forum as well as on discord (see RHDN discussion for the link).
Pokemon Factory Adventure - A new hack of Pokemon Red
31 October 2020 10:01AM EST - Update by Camerupt
The year is 199X. Several months after becoming champion of the Kanto Region, Red is called back by Blue to help on a secret mystery-solving mission! In Red’s absence the Kanto region has been overtaken by a strange mist that mutates Pokemon into shocking new forms, and the military has instated a lockdown! Are you a bad enough detective to discover the origin of the mutations and save Kanto?
This hack is based on a fansite some older Pokemon fans may remember from the late 90s called “The Pokemon Factory”. On it, fans (presumably kids) would email in their ideas for new Pokemon to the site’s artists who would make sprites and Pokedex entries of them to be displayed. These Pokedex mockups have made the rounds on the internet in the years since, with some even gaining notoriety as “Pokegods”.
A new hack by Cam, please enjoy everyone. Happy Halloween!
Dr. Garfield now available
29 October 2020 9:18AM EST - Update by pangenttech
Dr. Garfield stars Jim Davis’ famous comic strip cat, in the familiar Tetris-like well puzzler. Throw pills into the bottle to cure a sick bulldog, with the help of Liz the veterinarian.
Dr. Garfield became something of an urban legend after Youtube videos by Signal and Noise and horror animator LumpyTouch, which explored the leaked assets.
Built on Nintendo’s 1990 “Virus” prototype, this release from Pangent Technologies includes most (although not all) of the game’s intended functionality as seen in those videos, including new graphics, title screen and menu built with the assistance of Kasumi.
Perhaps a future release will be even better?
“Three kinds of ugly, nasty viruses are on the loose. But these germs are fun to catch. Garfield throws multi-colored vitamin capsules into the bottle. You can move, shift or spin the capsules as they fall. Arrange them to align with other capsules on top of the virus. If you can get 4 or more of the same color in a row, POOF! The viruses disappear! Destroy all the viruses in the bottle and you progress to the next round, where things get even more difficult. Play alone or enjoy simultaneous 2-player action, only on your Nintendo Entertainment System.
Dr. Garfield—the fun is contagious!”
28 October 2020 12:28PM EST - Update by CryinOnion

After the remarkable graphic improvements of the previous versions, it’s time for refinement: Now, compatibility with virtually all existing versions of this game is added + some fun and interesting features that you can find in the link of the project, or in the README file that accompanies the download. Check it out!
PS Here are some covers created specifically for this hack.
