I'm looking to buy one of these carts for the 2600. I found 2 on ebay that are both from Australia. One says that it is PAL format, the other does not specify.

Question - was Double Dragon released in North America for the 2600?

Follow-up question - will PAL 2600 games play on a 7800? I know that there is different hardware required to play Nintendo PAL carts, but does anyone knw about the 7800?

Yes.

Mostly. Depending on how intelligent your TV is about adjusting to nonstandard refresh rates, you may see a good picture, a rolling picture, or nothing at all. If you see a good picture, be aware there are color differences between how PAL and NTSC do color, so the colors will look a little off. But the game will otherwise play fine.

IMO you should hold out for a NTSC cartridge. I wouldn't think it would be too hard to find. There are places to buy besides ebay and you can get it complete in box for less than $30.

Also, you might consider getting this hack put on cart (shameless plug) :) :

It doesn't mess with gameplay, but makes the graphics look a lot better in my opinion.
