M Network "Lock 'N' Chase".....short cartridge?

Mon May 26, 2014 10:33 PM



i saw this eBay lot just now and noticed the cart in the lower right hand corner is an M Network "Lock 'N' Chase" cart........but its a really small case (half the size of a normal M Network cart)?!?!?!?!?!? Is this rare? Is it a homemade case? Did Mattel Electronics actually make them like this one? If so, I've NEVER seen one like it before today!


Wiki has listed for Lock N Chase:


Atari 2600

Apple II
Game Boy
PlayStation 3
3DS Virtual Console


its not "Telegames" version (standard Atari shaped cart with silver foil label), its not Intellivision edition (actual rectangle shaped), can't find an Apple II version on the net, and its not Game Boy or newer..........

Atari Game Program Case

Tue Dec 3, 2013 12:35 AM

While at the ArcadeExpo in Houston, I went out to the Gameover Games retail store in town and found 2 Atari Game Program cases. I was impressed how great shape they were in for being 25+ years old - no scratches, no cracks on spine or inside the plastic. Each one holds a total of 8 cartridges - 4 on the left and 4 on the right. I bought them and brought them home and inserted 2600 game cartridges into them, only to find out that the cartridges do not fit in them like they should. They do go into the plastic but with a little extra work.  I've searched the net for similar ones like mine with no avail. The cases I find online all have the brown cover with the Atari logo in the lower right corner, but mine have a huge Atari logo in the center. The inside plastic (where the games snap in) is black instead of white as others are online, and the openings are more rectangle than square in shape.


Anyone have any idea what program cases these were for? And how rare are they (since I can't find a similar one online)?
