Fuzhou Waixing Computer Science & Technology Co. Ltd. (Chinese: 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 unlicensed Famicom games and other electronics that was founded on November 18, 1993.
Waixing's games are notorious for their usual poor quality, bad music and lackluster programming. As well as originally developed games, they also released Chinese translations of Japanese games under their own name, for example, Fire Emblem.
Atop of this, Waixing also developed games built into various consoles since somewhere around 2005 - 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 VR Technology hardware with an enhanced colour palette) while others use certain 16-bit or 32-bit architectures. Some of these games were developed by Nice Code Software, Cube Technology, and possibly JungleTac, but feature Waixing copyrights on their title screens. In the case where additional changes were made to these games when released elsewhere, including those of the Nice Code library, they would usually have different title screens, graphics, or even an entirely new set of music.
Nowadays, Waixing has finished Famicom development (although their TMall site has their FC library available) and now manufactures Wii clones and educational software.
Waixing was formed on 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. Future staff of Waixing would also join 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 keyboard-based and standard Famicom clones, including other varieties of consoles and electronics. This company is also based in Zhongshan.
- 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 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.

Famiclone/Plug & Play Console Games Edit
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 (Famicom) Edit
Many games copyrighted to Waixing that exist on OneBus based Famiclone (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 Coolboy Famiclones. 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 - Modified version of JungleTac's Knockdown. The VT03 version of this uses a picture of The Rock on the title screen.
- 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 also more consistent but it only has one level.
- Edacity Snakes - Modified version of JungleTac's Hungry Worm, a Snake clone.
- Fireman - A clone of Flying Hero with only one level.
- Helli-Mission - Uses a remake of the "Tim 2" tune from Lemmings. Developed by Cube Technology.
- Hitting Mices - Modified version of JungleTac's Drop Em.
- Guard Farm - Hack of Duck Hunt.
- Highway Racing - A clone of Road Fighter.
- Overspeed Racing - A clone of Rad Racer.
- Penalty Kick - Uses Hummer Team's sound engine ingame. Actually says "Penrlty Kick" on the title screen.
- Police Skill - Hack of Hogan's Alley.
- Shooting Balloons - Modified version of JungleTac's Balloon Pop. Sometimes misspelled as "Shooting Ballons".
- Table Tennis (Famicom Mobile version) - Modified version of JungleTac's Ping Pong, a Pong clone. Some versions have different graphics. Music from the VT03 version was used was used in a Casino plug & play console by V-Tac.
- Table Tennis (Vii version) - The intro music is taken from a Sunsoft game.
- Tank - Clone of Battle City.
- Xmas Gift - Presumably a modified version of one of JungleTac's minigames that were licensed or bought out by Waixing.
- Square - A clone of Tengen's version of Tetris.
These consoles often include updates 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)
- Blood of Jurassic/Jurassic Park
- Monkey King
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.
These games are usually found built into Wii clones or generic handhelds. Some are updated versions of 8-bit games.
- 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)
- 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
- Shooting Balloons - Sometimes misspelled as "Shooting Ballons".
Game Boy games Edit
- ES-2006 Guang Ming Zhi Zi
- ES-2014 Huo Yan Wen Zhang
- 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)
- ES-???? Inner Senses (異度空間)
- Some of Waixing's earliest games used PCPaint fonts.
- Some of Waixing's earliest games were in Traditional Chinese.
- 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 their boards were altered to be primarily compatible with them.
- Several Waixing games appear on multiple bootleg consoles, including "Edacity Snakes", "Hua Rong Dao", and several others.
