Quoting: Koopacabraskinda reminds me of Puckman Pockimon
Aside from the bootlegged elements, that actually looks like a pretty competent maze-chase game - might have to check it out.

I'm from Romania and used to play on a Famiclone named Terminator 2. Very popular in eastern europe at the time.
Good and cheap way to for us to get into gaming in early 90. Got my first computer in 97, i was 10 years old then. 586/ 133Mhz/ 8mb RAM / 650Mb Hdd full of games and windows 95. Terminator 2 was terminated after that :(

I re-watched an old documentary by a YouTuber from Russia, titled The Curse of the Grey Elephant (it has English subtitles available) - it's a bit over an hour long and covers 1990s Famiclone and multicart gaming culture in Russia. I would highly recommend it!

I then ended up binge-watching several more videos by the same guy, in his "Dendy Memories" series, and that was great fun too, especially when it turned out that some of his favourites are the same as mine - Bomberman and Darkwing Duck both got specific mentions. The latter got an entire episode, which even went as far as covering schoolyard rumours about a hidden boss who actually wasn't in the game.

Quoting: PenglingEvery time I see it, I think of the now-iconic Vinesauce Joel reaction to it. "Grand. Dad. Fleenstones?!".
Ok I found the best mashup of his reaction, in chiptune style lmao
