Some of these fans express their appreciation of creating their own games as additional content for the series of games they love so much. So here are ten very successful fan games, if you did not know otherwise, you'd think they came straight from the original creators.

Newer Super Mario Bros Wii

Super Mario games are an integral part of any console , From the NES to the U. So it's no surprise that Mario's platform game is called New Super Mario Bros He went out to a living console. A group of fans called The Newer Team decided she wanted a sequel, but instead of waiting for one of them to come out, they just created it themselves.

Their game called "Newer Super Mario Bros" has no less than 128 stages, new and old bosses, the ability to play with up to four players and more. The game can be downloaded as a companion or U, and their site has instructions on how to make your console run it.

Pokemon: Type Wild

The Pokemon series is one of the most successful in the world for nearly 18 years, with an especially large fan community, so that over time the brand has won dozens of fan games. But, one fan game transcends the rest with its originality and production quality:
Pokemon: Type Wild is a two-dimensional hitting game in the style of arcade games like round. . You can play as one of nine different Pokémon, each with its own set of special moves and attacks, and even the possibility of summoning a secondary Pokémon. The game has a background story, but unfortunately the language of the game is Japanese, and apart from a few words on the menu it has no English at all. The game also has a two player mode, so you can challenge a friend to play against you. The animations of the characters, backgrounds and attacks are especially invested, and the game even has dubbing. The internet claims that the animations in the game were created by one of the animators who worked in the Pokémon television series, but I found no support for that.


The game lacks training mode and the way to cancel the battle and return to the main screen, but otherwise it is a pretty fun game, especially for the fans of the series who are waiting for the beating game Nintendo recently announced.

Mega Man 2.5D

The Megaman Games from Capcom were one of the most successful and challenging platform games for the Nintendo NES. The games required concentration and accuracy, and careful learning of the stages in order to pass them successfully. Although these are old games, they are still very popular among many, especially Oldschool players, and the proof is that in recent years, Kafcom has released two Megaman games with the old graphics and games to the virtual stores of Wii Ware, Playstation Network, Live Arcade.

The series has also received some innovations from its fans, and one of its most successful is the MegaMan 2.5D created by several talented developers and avid megaman fans. The game retains the original spirit of the game - with its graphics and music, unforgiving difficulty from the NES days and designing stages made on favorite stages from all previous games, but with a slight change that compliments the game - the game is not entirely two-dimensional, but exhibits elements of , Which adds to the gameplay and makes the game more interesting visually. In addition, the game also offers a co-op mode that allows you to play with a friend.

Mushroom Kingdom Fusion

If you ever wondered what would happen if someone took all the old Oldschool games like Mario, Sonic, Megaman, Troid, Xenavia and more and threw them all into the same game, you can get an answer if you play Mushroom Kingdom . This is a platform game that combines all the gaming worlds together, and one minute will play as Sonic in the world of Mario, and in the second moment as a link within the world of Metroide.
The game has quite a few original and interesting stages, and if you are an oldschool fan you will enjoy trying to identify all the worlds and melodies from the old games. The game has received quite a few updates and additions over the years, but the project has been somewhat neglected in the past two years.

Sonic Chrono Adventure

Sonic's transition to 3D over the years has not been entirely smooth, and it's no secret that most modern Sonic games can't quite reproduce the success of the old 2D games in the series. But what are some fans who understand about the hearts of other fans? Sonic Chrono Adventure is a game created by a guy named LakeFeperd and it takes you back to the times when Sonic games were 2D. Miscellaneous, plot, etc. The game is made entirely professionally, so it's hard to believe that this is not a real Sonic series game.

Psycho Waluigi

Valuigi has never won a starring role in a game of his own, but an independent fan and creator named Thunder Dragon has decided to correct the injustice he has done, and to create Waluigi a starring game. The result - it's a sleek, original platform game that could easily confuse quite a few people into thinking it really came from Nintendo.

In Psycho Waluigi, Waluigi accidentally arrives in a country called Unconcia and encounters a mysterious force that gives him psychokinetic abilities. These capabilities allow you to capture anything - enemies, coins and even parts of the environment and use them as , And later also take control of enemies and temporarily use their special power. In the game more than 30 different stages when each one controls a king that Waluigi should be overthrown with the aim of taking over all of Unconcia land.

Without a doubt Psycho Waluigi is a game of surprising quality. Its control is excellent, and Voloji's abilities are fun to use, and its stages are many and varied. Definitely a must-have game for all Nintendo fans among you.

Sonic Fan Remix

With 3D graphics that surpasses some of Sega's modern and original Sonic games, there is no doubt that Sonic Fan Remix is ​​the most graphically invested game on the list. It was created by two Sonic fans called Mercury and Pelikan13 who decided to bring back the playfulness of the original Sonic games to Mega Drive and CD Saga, but with modern graphics.

The result is impressive and feels like a real Sonic game, ironically also looking better than some of the steps from the official Sonja Sonica game released in 2010, the year Sonic Fan Remix was released.

Unfortunately, this is not an accomplished game but a blood that contains about three stages in total, and at least for the moment, the project seems to have been abandoned. It is certainly unfortunate as only these three stages look great either.

Super Smash Bros. Crusade

If you liked the Smash Bros games and tried to imagine how they would look in two dimensions, Super Smash Bros. Crusade is the answer. Super Smash Bros is a kind of easy hitting game, where all the familiar characters of In one arena, with the goal of getting your opponents out of the arena.

Super Smash Bros. Crusade leaves no one outside, and you can play it with all your favorite characters as well as characters that are not available in the original games and probably will never appear in them, such as Goku, Chun Li, Reimann and many characters Which have no official representation. Definitely emphasizes the beauty in fan games that can act by imagination.


The investment in details in the game is cut down in every character and character, each of which has various attacks and combos taken directly from their original games. And when you practice a bit, you can choose to play against friends in a situation of up to six players.

Super Smash Bros. Crusade is currently being maintained by a group of seven developers, who regularly release games that improve gameplay, fix issues and add characters and arenas, so it's worth keeping track of their progress on the game's Facebook page.


Conflict of Interest

Fans of the Phoenix Wright games, who are already looking forward to the next game in the series, can now take comfort in the Phoenix Wright: Conflict of Interest game that takes place after the fourth game. You play Phoenix Wright, a defense lawyer whose job is to prove the innocence of innocent clients accused of murder. The game is from the visual Nobel genre, and includes parts of the investigation in which you examine the scene of the crime and researchers eyewitnesses, and parts that take place in the court itself.

Conflict of Interest introduces you to four complete cases written by fans of the series, including a cast of new and interesting characters as well as quite a few old characters from the previous games.

The creators of the game tried very hard to maintain the original style of writing, so it is easy to be confused and think that this is a regular Phoenix Wright game. It will take you no less than 16 hours to finish the four existing chips, and the fifth case is under development. Highly recommended for fans of the series.

Pokémon Insurgence

Pokémon games have dozens of versions of fan games that have created new adventures in existing and new areas, but one of the most interesting is Pokémon Insurgence created by a reddit user named thesuzerain and maintained by a whole team of developers and quality testers.

Unlike original Pokemon games that require content suitable for small children, Pokemon games of fans set the rules themselves. And Pokémon Insurgence adapts itself to the adult audience, with a darker plot that takes some victims along the way.

The game takes place in a new area called Torren, an area of ​​about five sects worshiped by legendary Pokémon and believed in human sacrifice to summon them for their own purposes. The main character this time is not an ordinary child, but a kid who is kidnapped by a cult and manages to escape it through a mysterious Miu. The plot in the game is original and interesting, and you feel that it has done great writing work, which makes you want to find out what happens next.

For example, the Delta-type Hermander is a wind dragon and not a fire. In addition, you will also find original Mega Pokemon, trading and online battles, clothing stores and features like fast guard.

While it is not yet a fully completed game and its plot does not come to an end yet, it will take you a few decades to get there.
