Riverse Kids (りばーす☆きっず) is an unlicensed Super Famicom game developed by EJ Corporation and published by Jap!.
OverviewEditThis game is a variation of reversi (Othello), which is played against a girl named Mirika. The player can choose to play against either a younger or older version of Mirika, which act as easy and hard modes, respectively. Each opponent has her own set of voice samples played throughout each round. There is also an option to display handicaps on knowing where to place pieces. Besides that, it's standard Othello, with a particularly difficult CPU. Of note, however, is that the computer will get an "attack chance" once per round and replace one of the player's pieces with its own, presumably to make up for deficiencies in the AI. Also, there is a time limit on placing pieces, and running out of time results in an instant loss. Between winning consecutive matches, you're rewarded with animations of your opponent in various stages of undress.
- Similar to Super 3D Noah's Ark, this game is one of a few known Super Famicom/SNES games to use a top-loading cartridge mechanism in order to bypass the Super Nintendo's CIC lockout chip. However, some copies of the game use donor carts, like most of the other games developed by EJ Corporation. Also, some copies of the game come in standard boxes, while others come in plastic boxes resembling VHS cases.
- This is the only game that EJ Corporation is known to have released outside of the "SM Choukyoushi Hitomi" series of games.
- The other companies mentioned on the box, Atmark and SEM, appear to have been involved in the sale or distribution of the game.
- This game shares its music and sound effects with the other game published by Jap!, SM Choukyoushi Hitomi Bangai Hen 2: Maki no Love Love Panic.
- Clicking on the individual characters at the top of the settings screen will display each of the game's animations.
