Pickups 20: Famicom Cartridges 20 (13.11.2014) + 50th post!

Hi, everyone!
It's 20th post on my post on my gaming pickups, as well as the 20th post of Famicom cart pickups!

So, let's go on and show you what I got today from mail. :)
I got 4 Famicom cartridges, one of them being official cart.
So, let's start from the top.

Doraemon: Giga Zombie no Gyakushuu
Also known as "Doraemon: The Revenge of Giga Zombie" or "Doraemon: Giga Zombie Strikes Back".
This is the game I already covered the music from on my YouTube channel.
It's an RPG game, so it's all in Japanese. But, to tell the truth, I got this cartridge just for my collection. :)
It didn't cost too much as well. :P
The basic plot of the game, to my knowledge, is that Giga Zombie plans to invade the Earth and rule it. Doraemon and his crew go to stop him, and use Time Machine, but some weird accident happened, that made Doraemon separate from him crew in different time periods. He was able to get back in present time, but others got stuck in different time periods, so it's up to us to help him to find the crew, and stop Giga Zombie.
This game was also translated into English by Wakdhacks in 1999, and later translated to Russian by Chief-Net in 2012.
Also, what's kind of great is that the save battery is still working in this cartridge.
Time to get myself the Japanese to English or Japanese to Russian dictionary, and play some of this game! :D
In the mean time, you can listen to its music in this video (starting from 14:51):

Here there are some screenshots of the title screen and the file select menu. ;)

Super Bros. 10 Kung Fu Mari
This is a well-known hack of Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu, called Super Bros. 10 Kung Fu Mari. On a singlecart! From 1990s! :P
Basically, besides the hilarious sprite work, you also have the unlimited special attack. The number of special attack, shown at the bottom in HUD, doesn't decrease. And also, you are given more health.
Not a bad hack. In fact, I'll say that I like it even more than original Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu game, and you probably know that I have original Jackie Chan on Famicom cartridge as well. ;)

Well, I got it, just because it had the "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" music in the menu, which I like a lot, and, to tell the truth, I like even much more than "Unchained Melody", which I have on like 3 multicarts already.
The background is taken from Lion King by SuperGame, the unofficial port from Sega Mega Drive to Famicom.
This multicart includes Duck Hunt, Wild Gunman, Tank 1990 (Battle City hack), Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.
The rest of the games are repeats.

You can listen to that menu music here:

And here's how the main menu looks like:

And now, the most interesting cartridge...
198-in-1 Real Game
This is kind of unique and intriguing cartridge, because...
Well, it was made by CoolBoy company, the same company, who made 150-in-1 Real Game and 400-in-1 Real Game, which I already made a review about on my blog. :)

This cartridge, unlike 400-in-1 Real Game, has more advanced and more unique games, included on it, rather than just a lot of first gen games.
I will definitely make a review of this multicart in the future on my blog, so look forward to that.
But, for now, you can just simply look at the game's menu, and figure out for yourself what games are awaiting you, when you will get this multicart. ;)
(you can click on the picture itself to enlarge, thanks to the seller for making captures of the menu!)

Well, that's about it for my pickups! ;)
