I found that same named cart in Israel about 8 years ago and you got it in one. It is Flash Gordon. They definitely had some creative naming going on their stuff. I also found Free Way, Frogger, Plug Attack and Gramd Priks. :)

"Fire Burg" = firebird = Phoenix . . .

 

Am I right?

 

And if these were made in Israel, what standard are they? Isn't it a SECAM nation? Aren't too many SECAM-native carts . . .

 

And what rarity guide lists these? DPs? . . . Maybe they list Mexican Benji . . .

... will post some pics after this weekend ... will try some screenshots

 

Fire Burg looks like a altered version of Missile Command, with "robots" instead of missiles dropping to your cities.

That's Space Robot / Raumroboter then... very common on 5,000,000-in-1 clones/multicarts, and pretty common on a Taiwan style label... Flash Gordon is pretty common on them too...

 

Love those daft-named carts... I got Gramd Prix, Suppermen and Peetfal recently on eBay...

Thanks for the help to clear this up!

Comparing screen shots i found out that

- Fire Burg is Space Robot

and

- Sparker Gardon actually is Flash Gordon :D

 

Crazy Pirate Stuff!

Something tells me the Disney conglomerate would not have approved! Were these possibly one-offs?

Oh yeah...I don't know if anyone else thought so, but whoever drew that jet had an interesting understanding of aerodynamics. A little lopsided not to mention...I'm not sure what the side-aimed jets would accomplish aside from catastrophe! :ponder:

i have a fortress defense in the exact same style as the fire burg. it has mickey and donald and another mickey cavorting around a pyramid type thing with rockets flying past. its really bad artwork, you can see how it was colored in with magic marker (darker overdraw lines and edged objects). i picked it up in a game/comics shop in new zealand.

But in a SPACEship they let you steer. Or just move sideways.

For anyone who's interested: the label on your Fire Burg actually depicts the game called Fire Spinner (IIRC), also very common on pirate clones. Strange game, involves rotating the joystick and lobbing fireballs....
