Bonky0013 provided us with a dump of a bootleg board of Punisher. It was pretty easy to get going once I worked out the ROM loading and the format of the tile ROM data. It plays the same as the original - but interestingly uses sound data from Mercs.
The original Punisher PCB uses Q-Sound, and this bootleg uses the standard CPS-1 sound hardware (the game actually runs on a Mega Twins PCB). The actual mapping of the sound codes has been done quite well and the overall result is actually pretty good.
Overall, another interesting CPS-1 bootleg dumped and documented!Older
