The Dingoo comes with some free games titled, very helpfully, 1001.jgc, 1002,jgc … and so on.
They live in the “GBA” folder of “Interesting Game”, which is somewhat of an understatement. It turns out that a few of these games are made by “Jungletac”, which may explain the “jgc” filenames. I assume they are GBA compatible.
They aren’t complete rubbish, either. Some are pretty playable clones of popular classics or well known games. You might not keep ‘em if you’re down to your last meg or two, but they’re pretty playable in their own right.
Here is a list of their filenames, titles and a brief description.
|1001.jgc||Tiger Rescue||A pretty tough from the top shoot ‘em up, reminiscent of Raiden. My pick for the best of the bunch.|
|1002.jgc||Hero Legend||Clone of Don Doko Don.|
|1003.jgc||Jewel Fever 2||Clone of Columns, only it features a pirate doing it in reverse. That may not have come out right.|
|1004.jgc||Pinball Fish||Clone of Arkanoid|
|1005.jgc||Fire Fighter||You control some men with a trampoline, bouncing a fire fighter up and down to save people from a burning building. I swear it’s a clone of something. I’d say Game and Watch “Fire”, but somehow this game seems more … colourful … :)|
|1006.jgc||Pop Ball||Clone of Pang!|
|1007.jgc||Super Move Quest||Clone of Jewel Quest.|
|1008.jgc||Squirrel Bobble||Clone of |
|1009.jgc||Bump Bomb||I’ve never seen anything like this. You control two or more bugs which spin on their axis simultaneously but at different rates. Pressing A makes them walk, with the aim apparently being to get them to collide. Frighteningly engrossing.|
|1010.jgc||Hide and Seek||What would happen if Shaun the Sheep was a hustler? This is a variation of the old “which cup has the marble” game, only the idea is to pick the haystack with the sheep in it, after the haystacks are shuffled. Rather good.|
|1011.jgc||Jewel Master||Clone of Columns|
|1012.jgc||Manic Troll||You play a character who looks like Dora the Explorer and control an extending claw to retrieve coins from underground.|
|1013.jgc||Rolling Cube||Clone of Bloxors. A puzzle game in which you must guide a rectangular stone block along a grid to the exit on each level, viewed in isometric 3d. Challenging and fun.|
|1014.jgc||Rapid Stream||Pretty hard game in which you control a submarine to recover stuff along a level filled with obstacles.|
|1015.jgc||Bubble Blaster||Clone of Magnetica|
|1016.jgc||Hot Drop||You control a bubble gum blowing sprite which has to be guided to collect pink balls peppered among the clouds.|
