Titanic (2005): The Unlicensed NES Game That’s So Bad It’s Good

Released in 2005 by Shenzhen Nanjing Technology, Titanic is an unlicensed NES game that has become infamous for its bizarre gameplay, nonsensical story, and hilarious Engrish dialogue. Despite its many flaws, Titanic has gained a cult following among retro gaming enthusiasts and fans of so-bad-it’s-good entertainment.


Titanic is a side-scrolling action game in which the player controls either Jack or Rose, two survivors of the Titanic disaster. The objective of the game is to escape the sinking ship and reach the lifeboats.

The gameplay is simple but challenging. The player must navigate through a series of maze-like levels, avoiding obstacles and enemies. The player can punch and kick enemies, as well as use items such as keys and bombs.

One of the most unique features of Titanic is its two-player cooperative mode. In this mode, two players can work together to escape the ship. This mode is a lot of fun, but it can also be very challenging.


The story of Titanic is…interesting, to say the least. The game begins with Jack and Rose waking up in their cabin after the ship has hit the iceberg. They must then navigate through the sinking ship, avoiding obstacles and enemies, in order to reach the lifeboats.

Along the way, Jack and Rose will encounter a variety of strange and wonderful characters, including a talking dog, a giant squid, and even the Grim Reaper. The dialogue in the game is full of Engrish, which adds to the game’s charm.

Graphics and Sound

The graphics in Titanic are simple but effective. The characters and environments are well-drawn and the game runs smoothly. The sound effects are also good, and the music is catchy.


Titanic is a bizarre and challenging game, but it’s also a lot of fun. The game’s unique gameplay, nonsensical story, and hilarious Engrish dialogue make it a must-play for fans of so-bad-it’s-good entertainment.
