A downloadable multicart anthology

Years in the making, prepare yourself for the ultimate collection of NES titles: 54 of them to be exact, including entries from the NesDev 2017 and 2018 Coding Competitions, a showcase of other stand-out homebrew, and updates to homebrew of yesteryear.


* Also appears as-is on Vol. 1, re-included to provide an available physical release of the title.
¹ An earlier version appears on Vol. 1
² An earlier version appears on Vol. 2
³ An earlier version appears on Vol. 3

⁴  Features a censored version created for the compilation. Original, NSFW version available at the developer's site.

Install instructions

To play your downloaded titles, use an NES emulator of your choice (we suggest Mesen). Due to the large ROM size, the Everdrive n8 Pro is recommended for flash cart play. However, smaller ROMs have been included for compatibility with the standard Everdrive and PowerPak as well.

If the ROM doesn't work in your chosen emulator, it may not support Mapper #28. Contact the emulator developer to request Mapper #28 support or use another emulator.
