Since Lady in Wading by PlayAround was put on a 2 in 1 cart with the earlier game Beat'Em & Eat'Em by Mystique (a quick and easy choice), doesn't that mean Lady in Wading was probably made before the male version called Knight on the Town? In other words, which came first?

 

 

Update:

 

I guess it doesn't matter since I now list both versions of each game:

I think these PlayAround double-enders were all launched at once:

Thanks. Looks like Philly Flasher/Cathouse Blues on the left, Lady in Wading/Beat'Em & Eat'Em, and Bachelor Party/Gigolo have 1982 at the bottom. Bachelorette Party/Burning Desire and Philly Flasher/Cathouse Blues on the right have 1983 at the bottom. Doesn't seem to be a mention of Knight on the Town there.

I think Playaround released Knight on the Town with Jungle Fever:

Like most Playaround games, they were probably released by Mystique as individual games first:

although that reference is to the PAL version...
