Pokémon Red ROM hack brings some colour to Kanto

Pokemon Red ROM

ROM hacker, Drenn, has created a fan-made patch which adds both full colour and more detailed sprites to the well-loved monster catching RPG classic Pokémon Red.

FroggestSpirit colourised much of Kanto but had left the project incomplete, so Drenn completed the ROM with help from Danny-E 33’s graphics patch. This means that Pokémon Red, originally for the Game Boy, has both been colourised and includes sprites used in later Pokémon games.

The patch can be played via emulator or on the Game Boy Color using a compatible flashcard, and you can check it out here.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Pokemon Red / Blue

Never did catch ’em all. Got damn close, though!

The game(s) that launched a phenomenon. Pokemon Red and Blue had tipped the handheld gaming industry on its head in Japan, and the rest of the world could not resist the lure of Pikachu and his 150 friends. The western release of the game is not actually the original Japanese release Pokemon Red / Green, but rather based on the enhanced release Pokemon Blue, which featured redrawn sprites and a substantial number of bug fixes.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Pokemon Gold & Silver

Gen 2 is the best.

Pokemon Gold & Silver was the heavily anticipated second game in the Pokemon series. It’s difficult to sum up in this short paragraph the wealth of content that the second game brought to the series – 100 new mons, a huge main quest, new attributes, a day night cycle, Pokemon gender – the list goes on.
