Sir! These web pages were created by Carl of Dead Serious in an attempt to document the games emulated by Shark, one of the emulator project of Dead Serious. The scope of the contents have since grown to more a more general quality. It is all about the games and hardware by Toaplan. For some reason it is very hard to find west sites with decent information about Toaplan, but there's lots of it available in Japan. Some Japanese information has been compiled in to my best understanding (i.e. guessing) but much has been translated by Fujix. In a previous life the author worked on arcade game conversions and was part of the teams that brought Samurai Shodown and Fatal Fury Special to SEGA-CD and NBA Hangtime to SEGA Genesis and SNES.
On a refreshingly fresh sidenote, I noticed that an old employer liked my ramblings about some old games I made so much that they decided to "Borrow" some of my descriptions on their corporate pages. I am flattered :) Now, if that company had just let me finish that Shoot'em-up game for Playstation we were working on.........
Contact the site host for any reason concerning Toaplan. Donating PCB's or game cartridges is always appreciated!
