The infamous Bio Force Ape (NES) is getting a fan made cartridge release

commiebutterWas it real? Was it a hoax? Deep down we will never know the truth behind Bio Force Ape, but I think it's safe to go with hoax. Regardless of it's authenticity, it's sparked enough interest up for one fan to recreate the game for a cartridge release.

Going by a few iconic screenshots alone, ProgrammingAce has managed to somehow recreate what could have been the game and maintain the humour surrounding the brief appearance Bio Force Ape had online. Set to release it at the Midwest Gaming Classic showin America, a small contest during the event has been announced. The Bio Force Ape event will be a competition similar to the famous Starfox Weekend/Starwing Competition or the Donkey Kong Country Weekend, involving secret levels within the game only accessible via a secret code.

ProgrammingAce has also confirmed that the cartridge will be available to international customers at some point.

This game is actually not bad and I really enjoy it. However, the game was released as a not finished version and can always crush or glitch.
