Fuzhou Waixing Computer Science & Technology Co. Ltd. (福州外星电脑科技有限公司 fú zhōu wài xīng diàn nǎo kē jì yǒu xiàn gōng sī, literally Fuzhou Alien Computer Technology Co., Ltd.) currently known as Waixing Education Technology and sometimes Waixing Technology (外星科技 wài xīng kē jì, literally Alien Technology) is a Chinese company known for making Famicom pirates and other electronics that was found in November 18, 1993[1].

Waixing's games are notorious for their usual poor quality, bad music and lacklustre programming. As well as originally developed games they also release Chinese translations of Japanese games under their own name, for example, Fire Emblem.

Atop of this, Waixing also develops games built into various consoles - including those developed by Subor and Macro Winners - notably for various Wii clones such as the Zone 40 and MiWi. Some are Famicom-based (either standard Famiclone hardware, or with an enhanced colour palette) while others use 16-bit or 32-bit architecture. Some of these games were developed by Nice Code Software or Cube Technology, but feature Waixing copyright numbers on the title screen, and in the case of the Nice Code games have different titles and graphics to the versions released elsewhere.

Nowadays, Waixing has finished Famicom development (although their TMall site has their FC library available) and now manufactures Wii clones and educational software.

FormationEdit

Wx

Waixing was formed in November 18, 1993 after the split of a joint venture with Micro Genius called Chengdu Tai Jing Da Dong Computer Co, which developed games such as Journey to the West and Aladdin II.[2] Some staff also joined Waixing when Hengmao Electronics, UMC's mainland development team, was closed after the failure of the Super A'can.

According to its website, Waixing is now the "Z R & D center" of Zhong Shan Binary Star Educational Technology Holdings Co., Ltd. Waixing is also the parent company of - or at least in close cooperation with - Subor, a prolific manufacturer of Famicom clones and other consoles and electronics, which is also based in Zhongshan.[3]

AliasesEdit

  • ESC Co. Ltd. (Which likely stands for Extraterrestrial Software Company, as their Chinese name is Alien Technology. They used this name between 1993 and 1996)
  • Fuzhou Coolboy Electronics Co., Ltd' (福州酷哥电子有限公司) - certain Waixing games were re-released

    Waixing's current logo for their educational products.

    under this name (usually with title hacks). Some carts have both companies' names, and most Coolboy Famicom carts use the same shell as Waixing's without the moulded Waixing logo, so this may be an alias for Waixing or at least a very closely related company. Probably related to the Coolboy series of handheld consoles by Subor.

Connected companiesEdit

  • Union Bond - developer of games released by Mars

Famiclone/plug & play console gamesEdit

A number of Famiclones and other plug & play console systems, especially those made by Subor, include games copyrighted to Waixing. Unlike Waixing's Famicom cartridge releases (which are mostly Chinese RPGs), these are usually action or puzzle games.

8-bit (Famiclone)Edit

Many Waixing-copyrighted games on OneBus based Famiclones (VT02 or VT03) consoles are developed by Nice Code Software and are listed on that company's page, but the following are exclusive to Waixing consoles and may have been developed by other companies. They also appear on certain multicarts. Most exist in both VT02 and VT03 versions but some were only produced for one or the other.

  • Boxing - Called Exciting Boxing on the title screen. The intro is similar to those in the Rocky films. On the player select screen, Junior is actually Chuck Liddell from UFC.
  • Boxing Wrestle - Uses a picture of The Rock on the title screen of the VT-03 version.
  • Desert Gunman aka Desert Gun - Hack of Wild Gunman.
  • Diamond - Arkanoid clone, but different to the other version of "Diamond" listed on Nice Code's page; there are no diamonds in this version, the physics are more consistent but it only has one level.
  • Edacity Snakes
  • Fireman - A clone of Flying Hero with only one level.
  • Helli-Mission - Uses a remake of the "Tim 2" tune from Lemmings. Likely developed by Cube Technology.
  • Hitting Mices (sic)
  • Guard Farm - Hack of Duck Hunt.
  • Highway Racing - Heavily based on Road Fighter & uses sound effects from that game, but may or may not be a hack; unlike the original game there are no separate levels and the game just continues until you run out of fuel.
  • Overspeed Racing - A clone of Road Fighter with a 3D perspective which uses sound effects from that game. The HUD in the VT-02 version is stolen from Rad Racer.
  • Penalty Kick - Uses sound effects from Hummer Team's games. Actually says "Penrlty Kick" on the title screen.
  • Police Skill - Hack of Hogan's Alley.
  • Shooting Balloons - Misspelled as Shooting Ballons on some Famiclones.
  • Table Tennis (Famicom Mobile version) - Clone of Pong. Some versions have different graphics. A version of the music in this game was used in a casino plug & play console by V-Tac.
  • Table Tennis (Vii version) - The intro music uses Sunsoft's sound engine.
  • Tank - Hack or very close clone of Battle City

These consoles often include versions of certain games previously released by both Waixing and Inventor, such as:

  • Super Fight I (a version of Super Contra 7)
  • Desert Storm
  • Dragon Knife
  • Happy Biqi
  • Hua Rong Dao
  • F-22 (Inventor)
  • Jurassic Park (probably Inventor)
  • Monkey King (possibly Inventor)

These games are usually severely cut-down; the original Inventor version of F-22 has 16 levels, whereas Waixing's Famiclone version only has 3.[9]

16-bitEdit

These games are usually found built into Wii clones or generic handhelds. Some are updated versions of 8-bit games.

  • Bomberman
  • Commander aka Super X-man - a Contra clone. Commander still has a voice clip saying "Super X-man" on the title screen. At least one version of Super X-man has no voice and appears to be more advanced (including multiple selectable characters)
  • Diamond
  • Edacity Snakes - Rips off Sonic the Hedgehog's title screen.
  • Fish War
  • Hitting Mices aka Mouse Bang - uses a remake of the Donkey Kong theme as well as artwork from Donkey Kong Country and Tom & Jerry. Mouse Bang replaces Donkey Kong with a modified version of Woody from Toy Story but retains the Donkey Kong music.
  • Highway Racing
  • Merry Noshery
  • Overspeed Racing
  • Protean Girl
  • Saving Rabbit Bill
  • Square
  • Shooting Balloons - Misspelled as Shooting Ballons on some consoles.

Game Boy gamesEdit

  • ES-2006 Guang Ming Zhi Zi

    Game Boy logos. Top logo is from Fantasy Life (in-house games), bottom one from V.Fame re-releases.

  • ES-2014 Huo Yan Wen Zhang - a port of Fire Emblem Gaiden
  • ES-???? Huanxiang Rensheng (Fantasy Life) - an original board game/RPG hybrid based loosely on Milton Bradley's Game of Life.
  • ES-???? Tian Dao 108 Xing (天導108星) - Minor hack of V.Fame's Shui Hu Shen Shou released in 2003.
  • ES-???? Inner Senses (異度空間) - Minor hack of V.Fame's Shi Kong Xing Shou released in 2003.

TriviaEdit

  • Some of Waixing's earliest games used PC Paint fonts.
  • Waixing's English name is the romanization of "alien planet" (外星 - wai xing)
  • Waixing released their Famicom games in two different cases: rectangular boxes (original prints) and square boxes (reprints).  The square-cased games don't display properly on regular NES systems due to the setup of the pins (which can be fixed with proper soldering) while the rectangular-cased games do.  This might be due to the fact that clone systems are cheaper and more readily-available nowadays, so they were altered to be primarily compatable with them.
