Hack of Popeye


This hack started as a joke between buddies and has become the first collaboration between Protopixel & Crying Onion.

“Popeye” is a Nintendo video game based on the eponymous character, which after being a huge success in the arcades in 1982, was ported only a year later to the beloved Famicom.

Being a game developed and published in the early days of the console, it is needless to say that it is a pretty straightforward game, although it’s fun factor can’t be underestimated, nor the group of crazy guys who thought it was a good idea to create this crossover.

Features list:

● Redesigned title screen inspired by Capcom’s well-known franchise.

● Two versions of the hack have been made, with the franchise title localized to the Western and Japanese markets.

● New text font (Calderon Majuscule Roman, created by James Calderon and available from RHDN).

● New sprites of Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy, Carlos Oliveira and of course, the deadly Nemesis.

● Stages have been redrawn to make them feel more in tune with the RE/BH universe.

● A bunch of references and some Easter eggs have been added for the enjoyment of fans of this saga.

● Some exclusive cover art drawn by @Protopixel and @Super_Buni and layout by Crying Onion to give it an official look (Links below):

Fun hack that is just as advertised

Reviewed By: Wolfie on 23 Apr 2023

Popeye is a simple arcade style game for the NES that is a fun way to rack up points and kill some time. But as a survival horror fan, I find it to be a lot more fun with the Resident Evil theme of this hack. The hack applies the Resident Evil elements creatively and with great sprite work. I am glad to find this hack posted.
