Game Introduction

Midnight Wanderers: This is your basic run-n-jump platform game but the big difference here is the graphics - they are beautiful! You control an elf and run through the levels killing all the bad guys and picking up the power-ups left behind.

Chariot: This game is your basic side-scrolling shooter but again, with awesome graphics. You control an elf in a hang-gliding outfit and destroy wave upon wave of enemies and grab the power-ups to increase your weapon strength.

Don't Pull: I would classify this as a Pengo clone. You control a rabbit, or a chipmunk if you're player two, who run around a maze pushing blocks into the bad guys to smush them. No elves here! Very colorful and overly cutesy graphics.

Fixes

This game uses a suicide battery, located on the cboard of the PCB. When this battery dies, the game will no longer operate. You will be greeted with a blank screen upon powerup. A hack exists to revive the game, involving burning one or more new EPROMs and using the cboard from a different CPS1 game one that doesnt have a suicide battery.
