When you take a look at the cartridge you think that it’s a big budget game because of the look and feel. It even has a fancy led light wich glows when you turn on the console. Starting the game title screen you still have your hopes up because of the music.
Ric got hold of a Mario Bros IV cartridge, but the cartridge shell was in bad shape. Later on, we discovered the game wasn’t working. No matter how good I cleaned the connector, none of my consoles was booting this game. Time do debug the cartridge! First I had to identify what chip does what.
Another repairs post, but this time it’s a finished repair. This is a famiclone which only states “TV Game Console” on the bottom sticker. The cool thing about this clone is the fact that it can both play Famicom and NES cartridges and it looks like a NES, but smaller.
