Q about a Genesis cart

Recommended Posts

Today I picked up a Paperboy cart for my Sega Genesis for $2.50.

I noticed there was a solid black sticker on the back of the cart in the area where the "SEGA" name is usually located. I removed the sticker (I think there were actually two, one on top of the other) and underneath, it says "AKLAIM/entertainment inc./Assembled in Mexico."

Now, this is a Tengen game. Does Aklaim have anything to do with this game? Does this mean they used a cart shell they shouldn't have? Anything to this???

Also, another question... anyone know an online resource for Sega Genesis game instructions?

Acclaim did not publish [i]Paperboy[/i], and was not otherwise involved in its creation.

Most Genesis publishers had their own logo in that space, but all my Tengen games, including [i]Paperboy[/i], have "SEGA" on the back. I guess Tengen was too lazy to request a different stamp.

But it appears that I also have a couple of cartridges that were originally stamped with Acclaim's logo and then issued to another company. My cartridge of [i]Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure[/i], published by Konami, is in an Acclaim shell, with Acclaim's logo covered by a sticker printed with Konami's logo. My cartridge of [i]Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3[/i] is more like yours, with a blank sticker covering the Acclaim logo.

Perhaps Acclaim ordered a lot of cartridge shells, and then reneged or returned the order, prompting Sega (or whatever company actually manufactured the shells) to fill other orders with them. Edited by skunkworx
