Today I picked up a Paperboy cart for my Sega Genesis for $2.50.

I noticed there was a solid black sticker on the back of the cart in the area where the "SEGA" name is usually located. I removed the sticker (I think there were actually two, one on top of the other) and underneath, it says "AKLAIM/entertainment inc./Assembled in Mexico."

Now, this is a Tengen game. Does Aklaim have anything to do with this game? Does this mean they used a cart shell they shouldn't have? Anything to this???

Also, another question... anyone know an online resource for Sega Genesis game instructions?

Acclaim did not publish Paperboy, and was not otherwise involved in its creation.

Most Genesis publishers had their own logo in that space, but all my Tengen games, including Paperboy, have "SEGA" on the back. I guess Tengen was too lazy to request a different stamp.

But it appears that I also have a couple of cartridges that were originally stamped with Acclaim's logo and then issued to another company. My cartridge of Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure, published by Konami, is in an Acclaim shell, with Acclaim's logo covered by a sticker printed with Konami's logo. My cartridge of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is more like yours, with a blank sticker covering the Acclaim logo.

Perhaps Acclaim ordered a lot of cartridge shells, and then reneged or returned the order, prompting Sega (or whatever company actually manufactured the shells) to fill other orders with them.
