Items for Atari 2600 manufactured in Brazil

Recommended Posts

No update for almost one year. Time to "unstick" this topic?

 

No.

 

It's by far the most valuable Brazilian VCS carts topic in the world.

I was reading an old Brazilian videogame magazine (entitled "VideoGame") from 1991 and found 2 oddity I think some of you may like.

That was the unique mag from there featuring Atari game reviews by the time.

 

The first one is a game under development by "Engecomp" software (never heard about) that will feature a famous Brazilian singer Angelica.

There's no picture of the game, but was described as "memory game" (matching card game???).

It probably was never released, but it is interesting to know another brazilian game was in the works back in 90's (the other is MegaBoy).

 

The second surprise was an advertisement of a unknown to me "Conector Atari Console". Note Conector is the company brand, the console is just described as "Atari Compatible" console that will be released "October 1991".

Never saw this clone either. I'll post below both scans.

 

I did some search and found nothing relevant. There are many Engecomp's around to know which one was the aforementioned, and certanly Atari + Conector will never result in what I was looking for.

Interesting.

Thanks for sharing.

Here's the Conector list:

Perhaps Engecomp was connected with Engesoft:

A non pirated game from Brazil is hard to believe, though.

First off, amazing topic. I browsed all the pages, I doubt even brazilians know all these stuffs.

I also found here Dactar boxes from my cartridges I dont see in almost 30 years.

 

Just for curiosity during the '80s it was forbidden to import any eletronic device to Brazil, which impulsinated the develop of Atari and NES clones, when a official distribuitor got a license(grandiente) the market was already inflated.

Also the US NTSC Atari VCS showed black and white images on the brazilian TVs at the time, only in the mid-'90s they would support both PAL-M and NTSC on most sets.

I now place two interesting editions (special) that have many information about games and as to play they (and about manufacturers) . Almost all the games are from Atari 2600.

These editions had been "supplements" of a magazine with name "Somtres" (Somtrês). They are two editions with more than twenty years. (February, 1985 & March, 1985)

They have some old announcements of the time. (2 x Polyvox, 2 x Digivision, Microdigital, Dynacom & Honda) They are rare to find.

The list is for the name of the games.

I go to start for the first edition (games of A - H).

I wait that they like.

Sr. Ferraz,

 

Which Splice Vision games are these:

 

Aventura

Bombardeio

Duende

Furia Espacial

 

They are mentioned in the review book, but I can't read it properly.

(although I think that Aventura is Raiders of the Lost Ark)

 

Thanks in advance.

About the game list on these pages, theres some important info on these parts I will translate below.

warning1.jpgAlmost all game are compatible with the Atari system, with exception of three brands.

warning2.jpgApart from Atari system, there are, Intellivision, Odyssey (Phillips) and Splice Vision (Coleco).

 

So what I understand is that these Splice Vision's games, at least on this magazine were not Atari 2600 games, along with the ones labbed Intellivision and Odyssey.

There is, on the Web, some similar information about a company which was the first in Brazil to manufacture a compatible console to Atari 2600, and with the same hardware, the first "version" of Atari 2600 (first videogame/ console and cartridges). It was the year 1981.

The company "Bit Eletrônica" manufactured the console under the name "Top Game" and cartridges to be used in the console. The problem was that, the company, probably being afraid of legal issues and lawsuits (patent), changed the cartridge connector type (case) - it produced a cartridge connection different from the used with Atari 2600 and similar compatibles.

They were not successful because it avoided to use the cartridges with usual pattern for Atari 2600 (the joint did not allow the usage of an usual cartridge).

Another problem was that the cartridges manufactured by Bit Eletrônica were not able to be used in consoles with Atari 2600 joint pattern.

Afterwards, Bit Eletrônica launched an adapter to allow the usage of Atari 2600 standard cartridges in its console (I don't know whether it fitted or they manufactured another adapter to be used with its cartridges in consoles with Atari 2600 pattern connector, which was another problem). But it was too late - maybe, because of that delay, other consoles and cartridges compatible to Atari 2600 pattern had already been launched (~1983).

The console and cartridges manufactured by Bit Eletrônica are very rare, there are no pictures of them on the Web(so far...). As well as there is not any information or comment on the cartridges made by the same company.

My friend Marcos Felipe has got 4 cartridges manufactured by Bit Eletrônica (one of them without label), they really have got a plastic case which is very different from the Atari 2600 usual pattern (the circuit board connector is similar), they haven't got the two plastic pins which usually are next to the circuit board in the joint (fit).

One of those has got a brown plastic case and the others have got it in black, the labels are varied and perhaps from different series (years). The brown-cased one has got 2 labels, one of those was probably the pattern and the other (like a 'stamped' tag) showed the name of the game (modified when translated to Portuguese). The other cartridges have got just one label, which shows the name of the game (observe that it is written "Video Jogo TOP GAME" on two of them).

The labels are simple. I don't know the original name of the game in cartridges...

Another unveiled "mystery"...

Here is the extremely rare Top Game by Bit Eletrônica, which is the VCS but changed the slots.

Hello my friends of the AtariAge.

I am a serious collector and my idea is to place here some information about the products manufactured in Brazil for Atari 2600.

I wait that all of the community also contribute with information.

Sorry, my English is not perfect. icon_woozy.gif

I go to place here information, images of scanner, photos and propagandas (announcements) of magazines of 80's (of Brazil).

Contributions are welcome.

I am not always connected in the AtariAge.

I wait that all appreciate.

I only have some things, ok?

The name of the game that I inform is the original written in the cartridge.

Some manufacturers of cartridges of Atari in Brazil existed. Many made cartridges with some names and labels. Some made with variations of labels and the plastic boxes.

They made cartridges with 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 games. Some have keys to select the games, others the game change when off/on the console (Power). Selection through the "touch" of the fingers in a small surface also exists.

I go to initiate with two similar items to the "Starpath Supercharger"(Stella).

The program of three in cassette tapes is different. (they are not compatible)

All function reading a cassette tape.

The Supercharger manufactured for the company "Canal 3" (Supercharger by Canal 3) has the similar plastic box to the "Starpath". The Supercharger manufactured for the company "Splice" (Comp-K7) has the different plastic box.

In the "Supercharger by Canal 3" when the console is set ON appears in the TV the same image of the "Starpath" (Rewind tape/Press play).

In the "Comp-K7" when the console is set ON appears in the TV the image of the "Comp-k7/a-1983" and some notes of music "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind".

In the "Supercharger by Canal 3" appears in TV the image "CANAL 3" in the games "Frostbite" and "Keystone Kapers".

In the "Comp-k7" it appears in TV the image "CompK7" in game "River Raid".

One interesting detail in the game "River Raid": in the image of TV does not appear FUEL, it appears COMB ("combustivel" in Portuguese).

Another one: in the indication of the fuel it does not appear (E-1/2-F), appears (V-1/2-C). In Portuguese "V" (vazio) and "C" (cheio).

The "Comp-K7" has the same label in the two sides. (it has only great label)

The box of the "Comp-K7" is not original, I made it to keep.

I made a new label for the box of the Comp-K7, now 'seem' the original (see photo).

The images of the tapes (Comp-K7) are courtesy of my friend Leandro.

I added some pictures with lots of tapes of the "Supercharger by Canal 3", three of them are from an auction.

Hello Sr. Ferraz, That is an AWESOME collection you have there!! I don't suppose you are selling any of your Brazilian games right now? I have found games by CCE & Polyvox on Ebay, but never of any of these games by Tiger Vision, Ultra Vision & Fotomania, which I'm looking for. Thanks a lot, Adam

Hi there,

 

I´m at the final steps of testing and listing my entire Brazilian VCS collection. There´s probably another 40 or so recent purchases. Also I haven´t touched my CCE Thematic and CCE Supergame collections, so we can add about 100 games there, maybe 40 of them boxed.

 

Anyway... There´s already some 700+ games all individually photographed and sorted by manufacturer. I guess you guys might find it interesting.

 

Enjoy: http://www.lazzeri.online/vg/Atari_2600_BR/Atari_2600_BR.html

Awesome website! As someone trying to collect these in the US without breaking the bank, I am very jealous.
