Nice Code Software, called 西安东信软件公司 (Xi'an Dongxin Software Co.) in Chinese and formerly known as Nature Color Game, is a game developer based in Xi'an, China, which has developed games for Waixing, Nanjing, JungleTac, Qi Sheng Long & Trump Grand.

The company was founded by an artist and a number of its early staff were from Dragon Co.; they took some resources from Dragon when they moved to Nice Code, leading to a number of platform games being produced at Nice Code using Dragon's engines. Most other Nice Code games are simple one-screen action games designed for plug & play consoles and multicarts, but the company is also known to have made some of Nanjing's RPGs, including Alien vs Predator & Tomb Raider.

Games made by Nice CodeEdit

FamicomEdit

These games are usually found built into Famiclones and certain multicarts. Many have been produced in both VT02 (standard Famiclone) and VT03 (enhanced colour) versions. The original versions are from Nice Code themselves, but several variations exist from other distributors.

Nature Clan seriesEdit

The Nature Clan games form a small series featuring the titular character Nature Clan, similar to later Hummer Team releases. Nature Clan also makes cameos in other Nice Code titles, like Magic Jony. Most of the VT03 versions of the games remove all references to the series.

Nice Code is believed to have programmed officially licensed ports of Atari 2600, Atari 7800, and Intellivision games to the Famicom for use in plug 'n play systems.

Many lack music and have less advanced graphics than other NC titles; these were likely originally part of a large compilation. Brain titles include Addition, Build Pillars, Calculator, Counting, Diamonds, Fruit Logic, Lattice Winner, Move Box, Numbers, Puzzle, Rudder, and Salver Balance. Board and card games include Backgammon, Checkers, Dominoes, Go Fish, Hangman, Old Maid, Solitaire, and RB Chess. Casino games include Big Six, Blackjack, Crazy Eights, Freecell, Gin Rummy, Hearts, Roulette, Slap Jack, Spades, Texas Hold'em, and Video Poker.

TriviaEdit

  • While some of Nice Code's games use their own sound engines, a few of them take sound engines from other video games by different companies, Micro Genius's Chinese Chess being the most common example. Some of the songs using Nice Code's own are 8-bit renditions of various other songs, either from a nursery rhyme, video game or an anime.
  • Many of their games are copyrighted in China by Qi Sheng Long.
  • Nice Code games published by Waixing usually have different titles, music and graphics to the versions released by Trump Grand, Qi Sheng Long and other companies. This may have been so Waixing could register the copyright separately from Qi Sheng Long.
  • While it is unconfirmed, it seems that Nice Code is responsible for the majority of recent bootleg NES demakes - the 8-bit ports of Angry Birds, Plants vs. Zombies, Crash Bandicoot, Metal Slug Advance, and Mario Kart all use music and sounds from other Nice Code games, and the OneBus games Guard Radish (Game Over Gopher) and Cut Fruit (Fruit Ninja) appear on several DreamGEAR systems.
