ROM Release Rush, featuring Tamori no Picross.

Hey folks. Today I plan to put out a few more ROMs than usual.

Most of these ROMs are apparently Magazines based on the Satellaview’s radio content, but I’ll start with one that’s a game rather than just a magazine..

Tamori no Picross is, from what I can understand, a long series of weekly installments of Picross puzzles. According to the Japanese Wikipedia, it was broadcast to coincide with a radio show called 『サバチーチカレッジ タモロス博士のサンデーゼミナール』 (“Sunday Seminar with Dr. Tamorosu Sabachichikarejji”).
The header has a specific broadcast date of June 13th in the title of the game, whereas the download was, IIRC, just a few days later.

As you can see, the one in this ROM has a lot of resemblance to “Mario no Super Picross”. However, it doesn’t look a thing like the one featured in the ads, which was much closer to the original/first season of the program. Did the game somehow “Change format” at some point? I may never know without finding a premire ROM, but… aw, well.

The second ROM…

When I initially found this, I was hoping it’d be the elusive Soundlink game “Bakusho Mondai no Totsugeki! Star Pirates”. Instead, I seem to have obtained something else with their name tagged on it.

“Bakusho Mondai no Shirikon Chounaikai” is apparently a magazine meant to have articles based on the radio show of the same name which was also on the Satellaview…

Stuff like… Star Wars parodies. Very odd.

Bakusho Mondai apparently described the show themselves on their website.

And last one for now…

Yuuki Nae no Ge-mu no Tsubo. Yuuki’s name is one I keep seeing repeatedly throughout the Satellaview’s history. This particular magazine seems to be about… I dunno. But it’s probably also related to her other stuff.
