The following patch is available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) license. In broad terms, this means:

TL;DR: Don't sell reproduction carts of this game translation; if you're going to retranslate the game, be sure to credit the team that created the original patch; and don't distribute patched versions of the game in any way, shape, or form - including prepatched roms AND reproduction carts.

Buy a flash cart instead of wasting your money on an expensive reproduction card that uses EEPROM chips which lose their data after a few years. Or, use a console-based or PC emulator. I'm totally fine with that. Please don't give your money to people who profit from stuff game translators do for free.


Version 1.01 Patch (8,373 bytes, released on November 8, 2007)


Yet another "furry" video game. This is basically a Super Mario Bros. clone. Except of course you play as a Texan Armadillo whose girlfriend has been kidnapped. The game is fun, but suffers from many slowdowns due to the limited NES hardware. This game was also supposed to be released in the US (and the title screen was adapted from a magazine screenshot by BMF54123) but it never made it for some reason. So here I am, trying to set things right.

Y'all come back now, y'hear?title screen by BMF!*cue Serial film theme*I swear he's not an alcoholic!
