"Русская версия" part 4 - Back to 16-bit and Somari

If you haven't read Part 1, click here. For Part 2, click here. For Part 3, click here.

Actually, we have come to the end of this 4-part trilogy about Russian bootlegged video games. But don't worry! We'll still talk about my hate of bootleg games and my own reactions to them.

Now, we go back to 16-bit, and now with ANOTHER pirate, now it copied Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. We now have to comment on ONLY one TMNT game!

Ah, yeah. Here we go again. That same Russian company, now does hacks again! First we saw a badass hack of some game (Cannot remember title!) and Despicable Me 2 (game, not movie) came from it at all, from Russian company's permission. But, this one has "Возвращение легенды", which means "The legend returns". Which legend returns? WHICH? Oh god...

This has the same menu as Mario 3 and Mario 4, and the infamous "Русская версия" wordmark on its box art, and is there called simply as TMNT.
And we got Super Mario World 64, another Mario ripoff for Sega Genesis. Again. Just, I see, it is not made in Russia, but, A COVER ART FROM 2013 HAVING THE INFAMOUS WORDMARK EXISTS! Uh, my tongue is starting to, just hurt, but, I will make a break for one screenshot.

Now let's go to 8-bit. We now have Somari. But, it's not that Russian clone but it is however sold in that country. It is 8-bit and was released for the NES, and ONLY in the regions where pirate cartridges were distributed and sold. However, misspells...continue to occur.

Someri Team. What kind of this industry is? Ah yes, I got that. It's what Hummer Team lies. Somari is Mario and Tails mixed - Mario wearing Tails' shoes. And I hate that stupid "Ge De Industry Company". "Ge De?" What the **** is that? Ah yeah, they are just some forms of Hummer Team's publishing games.

The end.
