Does anyone know of a scan of the manual for X (ekkusu) or have the manual and would be willing to scan it?

I'd like to attempt a translation.

In the meantime, post 3D or otherwise impressive gameboy games.

Sadly GB manuals are generally hard to find. Likely because there were so many of them and no one saw it beeing really worth it :(

Mysterium
Ray-Thunder

Altered Space - a 3D Alien Adventure

Ray-Thunder looks cool.

It reminds me of Comso-Tank.

A super obscure Atari ST port of a FPS dungeon crawler. Very crude, but 3D.

Funny that you would post InitalD gaiden, I was just looking at it yesterday.
Shame that the soundtrack kinda sucks, but then again, I don't think a gameboy could do eurobeat.
>>
>>2902173
I've got it, but it might be a day or so until I can get to a scanner unless you're ok with just photos.
>>
>>2906447
A scanner would be best, since I'm not to great at reading moonrunes yet, but I think I could do with pictures.

I found the manual on ebay for ~$17 with the game and ordered it, so I'll have the actual manual here in about 9 days.
>>
>>2906474
that's a good price, nice work OP

can't wait to see those scans
>>
>>2907010
Me too!

X is one of those unique and influential games that goes mostly unnoticed nowadays.
I can't wait to see what details the manual hold.

On a side note, has anyone played the sequel to X, X-Scape?
>>
>>2907086
What did it influence how?
>>
>>2907086
I have played the sequel, it looks and plays much more smoothly but other than that seems very similar.
>>
>>2907091
X, and Starglider before it, were a huge inspiration for Star Fox, and by extension led to the development of the SFX chip.

They could've done European style chiptune. Would've been cool.

I mean, it was possible.

>Faceball 2000

I kinda wonder why this game is so obscure.
While its no Doom, the gameplay is decent, and the multiplayer is spectacular if you happen to have all the link cables.

Why do we care?

Bionic Battler

>>2910736
I guess nobody was asking for a portable, greyscale FPS back in the day.
>>
>>2910736
I'm still looking for proof that a 16-player game of Faceball 2000 is really possible. I mean, they claim it is, but it wasn't mentioned in the manuals nor have I ever seen a working multiplayer setup of the game online to that scale.

I have an inclination toward building the set someday, but I'm not made of money, and the equipment list altogether is pretty steep.
>>
>>2902173
Le'ts not forget the pretty faithful port of Battlezone

Oh shoot, I forgot about that!
>>
>>2911123
Do you have no sense of curiosity?

Game manuals usually contain interesting tidbits or story that they couldn't/didn't fit into the game, and X was the game that inspired Nintendo to make Starfox.
Surely something interesting lurks inside.

I dunno, maybe you aren't interested, but I am, and I want to share any interesting finds with anyone else who might be interested.

Ayakashi no Shiro and the Wizardry games are some first person dungeon crawlers on the brick.
