Micro-sized port of the N64 watery puzzle game.
Super Game Boy Support
Wetrix GB was first released in Japan with support for Super Game Boy and Game Boy Color. The later European version requires Game Boy Color, leaving its Japanese border unused. Setting the bit at 0x0146 to 0x03 or using the Game Genie code 031-46F-E6A will enable Super Game Boy features in the European version.
The credits screen displayed when the game starts up were changed up and shuffled around for the European release. Only the Imagineer screen remains the same.
The Japanese startup begins with the copyright screen before moving on to the colorful Infogrames logo. It then shows the Imagineer logo before going to the title screen.
The copyright screen was moved to after the Imagineer logo, putting the newly updated Infogrames logo first. A new screen comes second, sporting the name of the founder of Infogrames, Bruno Bonnell. The copyrights screen itself has also been completely changed.
Game Mode Names
All of the Challenge and Handicap game modes were renamed for the European release, even though the menu in the Japanese version is in plain, acceptable English. Two modes, renamed to simply "O" and "X", were given unique green icons to go with the new name.
|1 Minute||1 Minutes|
|5 Minute||5 Minutes|
|100 Block||100 Pieces|
|500 Block||500 Pieces|
|Up Land A||Raised Land A|
|Up Land B||Raised Land B|
|? Land A||O|
|? Land B||X|
|Hole Land||Random Holes|
|1/2 Tank||Half Full Drain|
In the Japanese version all of high score tables have titles like Classic Mode Record. These were changed to titles like Classic Hi Scores to better suit the screen. Oddly, even the Japanese version uses "Hi Score" for the menu icon.
The listed difficulty levels for the top three entrants in the list were bumped up a notch, probably to make them look more impressive.
The Challenge mode scores changed the most with names changing around and one of the scores being lowered to a more reasonable amount.
Just like with Classic mode, the top three scores were bumped up a level.
Unused Super Game Boy Palette
Wetrix is supposed to load a palette for the Super Game Boy right before the border, however, an oversight created by setting the palette to a new location causes palette to be absent. Game Genie code 082-1EF-D5A will load the unused palette instead of the border in all versions, so loading the border first, then turning the code on will display both the unused palette and the border.
