Found this game today while at my local store, someone had sold their full collection of a couple hundred games, this on included. I got it because I thought it looked odd and now I can't find anything about this exact game, however I've seen some of the other Genus branded games on here and other sites. Anyone have some more info on this game?

Looks like a typical Brazilian pirate company.

Anything with giant robo-scorpions and atomic bombs would be a way better game than Lady In Wading.

The art certainly does not reflect what the game is presuming it's the Mystique title.

I know it is a pirate company, but I have not found anything on this specific one, with these 2 games, only other games

Agreed. Unless its the X-man game. The scorpion looking monster could be an interpretation of one of the enemies in the maze.

But Im still confused here. The label says Lady in Wading. It doesnt say X-man anywhere. Why was that name even mentioned & why is it assumed to be a 2 in 1 cart?

It's from Brazil. Genus did copies for  single game carts, 2 in 1 and others.

 

We could use a nice scan of your cart for Atarimania

Yes, it does play both games

the front label says lady in wading, but the top label says X-man, it is a 2-1 and plays both games, there is a small switch on the side to switch between the two games

Those are indeed Brazilian clones. Theyre somewhere in the middle of the rarity scale, not particulary rare. They also dont seem to be very sough after. You frequently one or two on bigger lots.

Those generic-label brands like this one and so many more (VGS, Rentacom, JVP, Argevision... too many to list) are kind of frustrating to collect. They all look the same and virtually no one knows wich games were released so you end up on an endless wild goose chase.
