As you might have seen on the main page (more permanent linky here) I found a rareish game for X68000 the other day.  As you can see above searches for it come up completely empty, however I didn't try to search for the JAPANESE name.

Turns out the game won 4th place for best graphics in Oh! X magazine, 1992.  Here's a magazine ad scan (And a local mirror). 

The guy with the scans has hundreds of scans on his site including some for an undumped game or three.  Here are some games I hope to dump when I get this Win98 box fired up:

Ku2
Queen of Duellist

Sadly there's no ad scan for SystemSoft's Nectaris port, which I will get 'round to dumping someday.

Other ads for undumped games:

PitaPat
Last Battalion, se/pre-quel to the PC Engine's Override

Here's something I've never seen before:Ponyon, some sort of mahjong/kyodai/Shanghai board/puzzle game?

And another, Robot Construction.  Looks like a predecessor of the amazing Playstation game Carnage Heart.

You'd think if it won 4th place in a magazine, it would sell a few more copies. Could it be that people don't sell it because they think people aren't looking for it? This happens with a lot of old dos software.

I like the box design. Unless you're picture is deceiving, The thick X68000 box adds to it. I'd like to find a copy just for the box.
Visit RasterSoft on facebook or visit the website.

Shoot range is a cute game flawed by old fashioned interface design.  Lots of little popup windows and a fairly cumbersome UI, demanding the player do a lot of pointless busywork instead of automating a lot of the repetitive actions.

No idea what I'm doing when I play it, sadly. =)

Sorry for reviving dead topics guys, but I have dumps of every game listed as undumped in this thread. The only one I'm unsure of is Queen of Duelist, as I don't have a game named just that, but rather Queen of Duelists Gaiden Alpha+. Not sure if this is a derivative game or what. Anyway Lawrence if you want to get a look at some of these (if you don't have them in original version already you scoundrel :P) just send me a message.
Go up to your brother, kill him with your gun. Leave him lying in his uniform dying in the sun. War, it's never been so much fun.
