First of all let us tell you that this is a brand new private tracker that’s just launched. JucyBitz is a Gazelle based games torrent tracker with both PC and console games. The site seems to be focusing a lot on old school titles such as Super Mari Bros, Metroid, Megaman, etc. From what it looks like JuciyBitz will index a lot of ROMs for console games designed for the SNES, PC Engine, Sega Genesis, MAME, Amiga and more (ROM files are images of game cartridges – these can be used in conjunction with an emulator to play console games on the PC).

As mentioned earlier this is a brand new tracker. Currently there are only 10 torrents indexed, all of which were added in the last 24 hours. Number of registered users hovers around 50 (statistics as of 19/3/2009). These stats will most likely improve as the site gains more popularity in the coming days.

Speaking of the content on JuicyBitz, they seem to be focusing a lot on ROMS for retro games designed for older gaming consoles. Below is a screenshot of some of the torrents currently added to the tracker:

JuicyBitz comes with 4 stylesheets for the Gazelle template it’s based on. Like most Gazelle trackers, the layout is sleep, fast and very much navigable. Apart from the above there is not much that can be said about this tracker at this point – JuicyBitz so new to the BitTorrent scene and only time will tell how it fares among other gaming trackers out there.

If you want to check the site out, registrations are currently open. New users get 5GB upload credits as well as 5 invites.
