Recommended Posts

I made a 256 in 1 a long time ago, in a translucent case, with 8 switches and glowing LED's inside. Only ever made one, dunno who owns it now.

Can you please tell me which serial number is on the box? if i remember correct, the serialnumber is printed on one of the top flaps.

something like 1-XX

 

and a second designation on the backside og the cart.

something like PAL xxx-IN-1 GAME (X)

 

Thanks in advance.

This is one of my rarest and fondest carts,one of a kind.

After much discussion with Rom Hunter we came to the conclusion that it is highly possible this is a prototype cart that was made by Home Vision aka Thunder Vision's [email protected] department just before the crash of Atari in an attempt to boost sales.

 

Notice that the end label carries a cut out piece of the box inlay of the still unfound Jacky Jump from Home Vision.

It's definitely not a prototype. Those normally have typed or hand-written labels on thick paper or cardstock glued to the cart. Occasionally, the cart end will be sawed off or rectangular holes drilled to allow extra long PCBs or chip sockets.

 

Modern day repros look a ton more professional compared to vintage prototypes.

 

That said, if you believe this cart is a unicorn like Air Raid or Red Sea Crossing and a public dump does not exist, it would be in everyone's best interest if you could dump and preserve the data, or lend it to someone who can. EP-ROMs will eventually go bad, then all will e lost to time and bit rot.

Box flap has 1-06, cart has no pal sticker, just molded into cart MADE IN TAIWAN.

Noticed on AtariBoxed.com that the picture there shows a different box. How did this company end up with all of these Atari silver graphic boxes to reuse for

their games and it seems they just used a stack of boxes at random to fill with their versions of multi-carts.

I would love to get hold of a CIB Miner 2049er Vol.2, but seeing what a CIB NTSC copy went for a couple of weeks ago on ebay, it ain't gonna happen.

My rarest would be a CIB PAL Demolition Herby (colour handle) although the box doesn't have a PAL sticker like my other two Telesys games have.

Also a CIB Miner 2049er PAL sits nicely in my collection.

For me, it's almost certainly Wall Ball, though there's a possibility the rarest I have is Little Bear. It was a little illegal knockoff of Frostbite, produced I think by a Taiwanese company. AtariAge doesn't seem to know its rarity. Only cartridges on both, unfortunately.

 

EDIT: Whoops, it'd help if I actually uploaded the image I selected. I knew the post happened too quickly!

Yeah...not sure which rarity guide is most up to date, but I'm going by AA's guide.

 

Wish I would have picked up my BB copy a few years ago.

Easily Combat, Pac-Man and E.T..

 

Ha-ha. I have a feeling somebody's joking.

 

As to mine: probably either Coconuts, Color Handle Label Variation or DK Jr, Coleco.
