Hi, looking for information on this Telegames Star Strike version.

Recommended Posts

I was pointed in the direction of this forum by some good folks over on Reddit. I have come into the possession of what seems to be a PAL release of Star Strike by Telegames. I have not been able to get much information about it, other than a few mentions, and its appearance in a few databases. http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-2600-vcs-star-strike_7809.html and http://www.completeroms.com/dl/atari-2600/star-strike-telegames-pal-/1760

 

I've been provided with a little more information about Telegames and how they came to license the game, but putting a value on it has proven very difficult. There are no eBay listings that I have been able to find, let alone a finished auction. I am aware this game -even though, perhaps rare - might not necessarily be that valuable. I'm not an Atari collector, my preference lies with the PC and PS1/2 consoles for now, so this game would probably be part of a trade in the future.

Thanks for your time.

I wish there was a way to distinguish NTSC from PAL Telegames carts. Especially sealed NOS copies that can't really be tested. I guess sellers must see "Telegames USA" on the box and assume it's NTSC.

 

I've wound up with several PAL Telegames carts that were listed as NTSC. :thumbsdown:

Telegames USA doesn't mean it's automatically NTSC:

It took me many years to create this list.

 

Same for this one:

The only way to tell is to test them.

Star Strike may not be super rare, but having just purchased one I can say it seems to be going for a fair amount compared to a lot of other Atari games. On average it is pulling in about $30-40 on eBay for a loose INTV version. I don't know what the UK Telegames is worth, but I'd imagine you are looking at more than $20 US, which makes it higher than average.
