Pickups 14: Famicom Cartridges 14 (06.10.2014)

Got a few of these carts recently!

  • Galaga [LA25]
  • Sheng Hen Pao (AKA Twin Loud Cannon) - Thank you, Oreanor!
  • 4-in-1 [YH4160] (Monster Inc. Top Gun 2, Guevara, Nekketsu Kakutou Densetsu
  • Mickey's Adventures in Numberland [Made in Singapore]
I didn't get much Famicom carts recently, but I think that these carts are quite interesting.

Here I provide you some photos of actual carts, and title screens of each games.
Quite disappointingly, this cartridge didn't have "Cassette Remarks" label or anything similar to that on the back, but, this game is not exactly too common on singlecarts. Most of the times you see this game on multicarts, so it's still quite cool to own it. ;)
Also, the cartridge case really looks similar to official "Namco" cart of this game, except it's light-blue, and Namco logo was taken out from the plastic case.

I don't know what this game is, but I got it for my friend, because he asked me to pick it up. If you know the real name of this game, and who developed it, let me know it somehow! ;)
UPDATE: It turned out that this game is Sheng Hen Pao (AKA Twin Loud Cannon). Made by Bit Corp in 1988, and it's some random poker game, that's one of the first unlicensed Famicom games ever released! Thank you, Oreanor, for letting me know the name of this game! :D

It's a pretty interesting multicart. It contains a hack of Wacky Races, re-branded to Monster Inc., and three original games, Top Gun: Dual Fighters, Guevara and Nekketsu Kakutou Densetsu.
From what I found out about this multicart, all the included games are Japanese versions. Even that Monster Inc. game is hack of Japanese version of Wacky Races! Pretty funny... Maybe I will make a video about this multicart in the future, I dunno. :P

Here's Mickey's Adventures in Numberland. I picked it up just for collection. ;)
It looks kind of simple from what I've played once I got this cart, and it's a bit similar gameplay-wise to Mickey's Safari in Letterland. Both games are developed by Beam Software, which could be either a good or bad thing. They developed Back to the Future game for NES, which was mediocre game, but not terrible. Also, they developed Punisher for NES, and that game is kind of decent. ;)

That's it for my current pickups!
Thanks for reading.
