Shock Vision games are ROM variants

This is my current list of the 50 known Shock Vision and Intelligame pirate carts, gathered from images on the internet.  Those with entries in the variant columns have been dumped and their status as ROM variations is confirmed (or refuted).  Known ROM variations only differ by a hacked copyright message on the title screen.  As a consequence, it is unlikely that any Mattel titles with stock title screens will be ROM variants.

decle, the list should be updated with a new entry:

Fathon (sic)

Ricardo's images added quite a few new titles to the list, for example Astrosmash, Frog Bog, Golf and Sharp Shot.  However, whilst his collection is certainly the most comprehensive seen by some margin, it is still some way from being complete ;).  I still find it interesting that for a football mad country no version of Soccer has turned up yet on either Shock Vision or Intelligame.

 

@ricardowilmers, it is not clear from cartridge label in the image what game this is...

Just for completeness, could you let us know what it is please?  Thanks.

 

decle, I finally tested Shock Vision Fathom ("Fathon" on both labels) and Dracula ("Drácula" on both labels) and you can definitely add them to the list of Shock Vision games which have the Rom variant:

Other Shock Vision games I tested right today have apparently the original Rom. I'm talking about Pinball, River Raid, Truckin', White Water, Ice Trek, Bowling and Loco-Motion.

Nice!  Thanks for taking the time to do this and report your findings. :thumbsup:

 

I've added your results to my list of Brazilian pirate games which I've transferred to a Google spreadsheet that can be viewed here (we've now identified 53 Shock Vision games and 19 IntelliGame titles):

 

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Gg49VKGUp8k7y5MeHOFcnsFeO77G8FPPwPOUYrA8yhE/edit?usp=sharing

 

In doing this I've split the Shock Vision and IntelliGame lists onto separate worksheets, and tried to provide links to evidence that supports the assertions made.  When it comes to ROM variants I've applied the following rules:

  • Yes - If there is a picture of a doctored title screen or there is a ROM dump to support the variation
  • No - If there is a ROM dump that confirms the game is a standard version
  • No? - If there is a picture of a standard title screen or someone states the game appears to be unchanged
  • Blank - There is no evidence at the moment

 

As always, if anyone has any corrections or additional information please let us know and I'll add it (if we could persuade @cmart604 down into his Inty dungeon for an hour with a Shock Vision adapter and camera, we could probably add a couple more ROM variants to the list! ;)).

 

 

Cheers

I actually forgot I had 4 more Shock Vision games to test, lol

 

Q*Bert, Frogger and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Treasure of Tarmin (aka "Adventure Duendes e Dragões II") look like having the original Rom. On the other hand, Popeye is definitely Shock Vision, as already stated and shown elsewhere and also reported in your spreadsheet.
