Tomboy

Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen, I got a query about a game called Tomboy, and there was little info on this sites databse, other than confirming the game exsists

 

Its been years since I played it, but as i recall it was bascially a Pitfall! ripoff, similar sort of gameplay, but much easier, with no crocodiles, no brick walls, and only rubys as the treasure.

 

I saw a copy in the local thrift shop, but it is closed on Mondays, rest assured I will aquire my copy tomorrow, but in the mean time, does anyone know anything about this game?

Just a Taiwan pirate, like the other pirates/hacks of Pitfall! (Dschungle Boy, et al.)

 

There are tons of Brazilian/Asian/European hacks floating around out there. Even Canadian retailer Zellers ripped off some foriegn hacks and released them in Canada 'til Atari sent them a C&D.

Yep it's a hack of Pitfall!

Hilarious instructions, in broken english are featured on the back of the box.

Not to mention, doesn't the cover art look like something out of the Jungle Book? I mean, the character on the front looks like Mowgli! (Yet on the back it calls Tom Boy a girl?)

The box art is a straight copy of Quelle's "Dschungel Boy" ("Jungle Boy") hack, so it makes sense in that context.

Indeed Tom Boy is a girl in this hack as the instructions clearly state. Bare breasts on the front of an Atari 2600 box, what could be better.

Im amazed they let this label get out of the labs.Think of the faces of the moms who read the back of the box finding out theres a nude chick on the front. :D I smell a racism conspiracy!

Is there a ROM file anywhere for this? (...and what are the ethical implications of using a pirated ROM file that is of a pirated hack of another game?)

Bare adult breasts, maybe? Tomboy looks to be a bit underdeveloped :P

Back then, nobody thought twice about it. Today, that's child porn. :roll:
