The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy (NES)
« on: May 20, 2015, 08:48:18 pm »
Well, after mapping the sequel to this game, JonLeung suggested that also do the original. So here I am, doing just that.

I must say, this game still holds pretty well, especially for a licensed game of the era. The controls are just a tiny bit worse than the sequel and there's less variety in terms of gameplay and stages, but I still kinda prefer this one for the (in my opinion) better graphics and better-looking stages. For the stage names, there are none mentioned in the manual so I went with those from the Nintendo Power issue that covered the game with the exception of one (that's a castle, not a cave) since those are the only names I found repeated on a few online FAQs.

I should note that contrary to the minigames from the sequel, I also added the reward for each basketball court since all three maps are otherwise identical. I realize I didn't mention the rewards in the sequel but that's because not only does the game not tell you what they are, but I never found out from playing the game, reading the manual or searching online. I wonder if that might even a been a dropped feature...

Anyway, here's what I've completed so far:

Stage 1: Bedrock


Basketball Court 1


Stage 2: Reef Rock


Basketball Court 2


Stage 3: Icy City


Stage 4: Jungle


Basketball Court 3

Hi TerraEsperZ,

Are these maps complete enough for me to put up on the site?

Sure, you can put them up.
I started a thread several years back where I wanted to submit all those orphaned maps but I just forgot about it I guess.
Feel free to ask for any other unfinished project like that because I'm sure I have a lot more just lying around.

I ripped it some month ago, but don't sent it to you.


If it's necessary, the next maps is:
5 Dungeon


6 Water


7 Jungle Village


8 Future No. This file is broken and need to resave

There are a number of graphical oddities on Stage 7.  Are you using the latest version of the emulator and a clean ROM?
