ledHeadWii v1.1 (Wii misc)

ledHeadWii is based on Peter Hirschberg‘s LedHEAD (classic electronic LED handled game simulator) source code.

LEDhead is a program that simulates the classic electronic LED (light emitting diode) based handheld games of the 70’s. Now you can relive the excitement of your childhood years all over again! All games feature fully authentic sound-effects, and faithfully replicate the game play of the originals.

Rather than using proprietary code or “ROM images”, as is the case with emulators, LEDhead uses simple but extremely clever imitation to ensure excruciating faithfulness to the games you grew up with. Endless hours of painstaking effort have gone into ensuring the accuracy of each of these games.

Watch this video on YouTube.

Fruit’Y -- Playing with edibles is heavily inspired by the Kaiko classic Gem’X, which has been seen on computers such as the Commodore Amiga 500, Commodore 64 and Atari ST.

Although tiger mum forbids little Sheran to play with edibles, there is simply no way to stop him from playing with fruits found inside the deep jungle. Being shiny, smelling wonderful and tasting even better Sheran can’t be kept away. So let’s do the best we could do: Support him!

The game consists of two boards of fruits. The left field belongs to Sheran who needs to reproduce the right field 1:1 being able to proceed to the next level. Sounds easy?!
