Reviews: 150-in-1 PocketGames [Famicom]

Welcome back to my blog!
This time, I am reviewing a Famicom multicart, that is available on Aliexpress, and considered by many people to be the best FC multicart up to date.

This is... 150-in-1 PocketGames!
Let's start with what we see on the actual label.
It shows Ninja Gaiden on the right, and on the left side, we see Rockman, the logo of Ghostbusters, Batman logo, Hoshi no Kirby, TMNT, Salamander, Akumajou Dracula, Captain Tsubasa, Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari, G.I.Joe.

And funnily enough, actually all of the games are included here, but there are far more games than are just on the label. But it certainly already grabs your attention right away.
The back side is pretty standard, nothing much to say here.
Just like 400-in-1 Real Game that was reviewed earlier on this blog, it's the same size as the aforementioned cartridge, and therefore it's smaller than regular Famicom cartridge by height.

Also, I should mention that this is not the only version of this multicart that exists on the net, that you can purchase from Aliexpress or other websites.
SuperGame 150-in-1 [Famicom]
This label features Kunio Kun, Tiny Toon Adventures, TMNT, Hoshi no Kirby, Akumajou Dracula (Castlevania), Felix the Cat, Ninja Gaiden II, Mega Man X.
Slightly different label, but it includes the same mulicart as on above cartridge.
Also, the cartidge seems to be the same height as the regular Famicom cart.

Super Games 150-in-1 [NES]
This is the NES version of the multicart. Unlike many early NES pirate carts, that used basically the Famicom-to-NES converter, this one has one big PCB inside, designed specifically for NES. ;)
The cartridge case is also in red as the above cart.
The label features: Rockman 1-7, TMNT 1-4, Ninja Gaiden 1-3, Castlevania 1-2.

So, that's about it for the versions of this multicart released. It's time to take a look at this multicart in action. And just like with 198-in-1 Real Game and 400-in-1 Real Game that I reviewed in the past, this cartridge also works perfectly fine on my Famicom.

The boot up screen
 So, once we start up the cartridge, we are greeted with Mario icon here, as well as SOND logo.
I am not sure what that means.
Then, at the bottom, we see "Shenxhen SpriteMind Software Co. Ltd.", which is apparently the company who was behind making this multicart.
After that, there is some text in Chinese, and the date, when this was originally released, 18th of March, 2015.

Worth pointing out that on other versions, there is "Sonic-kind of" icon, instead of Mario, and looks like this:
The alternative boot up screen
 There aren't that many differences between the included games in both multicarts, that have these two different boot up screens, so let's go the main menu itself. ;)
Main menu
Once, we get to the main menu, we see the pretty beautiful menu system, along with the music from Dragon Fighter, that is played on the first level.
On the top, it says "PocketGames" 150 IN 1. Then the game's list, 10 games per each page, and the image from the game.
Then, at the bottom, there is some ID "ZYX-8B2976" and Rockman at the bottom right.

The menu looks actually kind of awesome, but at the same time, it gives me bad memories about crappy Famiclones, like PVP Station Light 2000. Here's the gameplay footage by PirateGamingHeavy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gn0dWdFb5CU
But thankfully, this multicart is actually pretty good, and not even close to being as awful the aforementioned one. This one includes a lot of games, and no repeats.

The menu navigation is really comfortable. You use D-pad to scroll through games, Left and Right to switch pages, B and A buttons to skip through 50 games, Start to start them.

Speaking of which, the majority of included games are actually the ones, released in the end of 80s and in 1990s, so you get some NES classics, such as Contra, Super Mario, Castlevania, Jackal, Gradius, TMNT, Dr. Mario, Adventure Island, Ninja Gaiden, etc..
Worth mentioning that you get all Rockman games on here, which was like the main feature of this multicart, that it includes all 6 original NES/Famicom games in the series, plus Rockboard, which is a board game, with Rockman characters in it.
You also get some Famicom exclusives on here, like Nekketsu Kunio Kun series, as well as Captain Tsubasa II, Mitsume ga Tooru, Summer Carnival 92 Recca(!), Ultraman Club, and such.
There are also a few rare games, that are not really that common on NES/Famicom, like Little Samson(!), the aforementioned Summer Carnival 92 Recca, Tokkyuu Shirei Solbrain, Flintstones: The Surprise at the Dinosaur Peak!, Power Blade 2, Snow Bros, etc..
You also get Kirby's Adventure on here, which is something you have probably never seen on a pirate cart before. ;)

So, let's look at the screenshots, so you can see the main menu more detailed, and then I will bring you my game's list of all the games here, and mention some few moments.
Before doing that, I'll also add that the games I tried, work perfectly fine, they don't freeze or anything like that. There is some load time between booting up the cartridge, and choosing the game in the menu.
In majority of the games, the copyright information is not even removed!
The weird thing is that besides that, there are European PAL versions of games included, and they are not exactly great to be played on NTSC hardware, like Famicom, and it's better to play them on PAL Famiclone, to play them in a proper speed, even though the sound pitch would be higher.
 And here's the game's list of each included games. Most of the titles are recognisable, but there are some that you probably might be not familiar with. ;)

The title screens for each game included: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rprz2oz7prkdd5k/150in1pocketgames_gametitle.zip?dl=0

Now, the games I marked with 3 stars beg for extra information:
***21. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: The Manhattan Project (US version)
If you are one of those people, who ever came across pirate Famicom carts back in 1990s, then this will be familiar to you.
Basically, this game has anti-piracy protection, and if the copyrights are removed on the title screen, and possibly on the copyright screen, then the game turns into ultra-hard mode, where enemies require twice as much hits to get them killed. This also makes some bosses really difficult to beat.
But that's not the worst thing to come. Here's the worst about that pirate version: Shredder on the first Technodrome level becomes unbeatable.
You try beating him once, he starts blinking, then you hit him, and hope that it's the last hit, but then he stops blinking, and you have to beat him again.
No matter how many times you beat him, he'll never die. So, the best alternative way would be to use level select cheat and then skip this level.
"The Grey Elephant's Curse" movie by Kinaman for reference!

Thankfully, in case with this cartridge, everything is fine. There is original NES version included here, with copyrights, so you don't have to worry about the anti-piracy stuff that is written above. ;)
And this means that regular enemies take 2 hits, and bosses can be beaten much easier too. As well as Shredder on the first Technodrome can be beaten without too much of a problem.

***30. Super Mario Bros. 3 (JPN version, removed copyrights, item select, infinite star power)
This version of Super Mario Bros. 3 is a bit unusual.
First of all, the copyrights are removed, so it no longer says "(C) 1988 NINTENDO".
Also, the title screen was partly removed, so it says just "3".
Next, in the item inventory, if you press Select, you can choose any item you want, which works perfectly fine. This was common among many pirate copies of Super Mario Bros. 3 that were released back in 1990s. I tested all of my copies I have, and all have this item select cheat.
But, there is one thing that pirates also added here, that isn't even presented on all of the copies I have. But, this needs to be proven.
On this version, you also get infinite star power, so once you collect a star, you won't even lose it, and will remain invinsible. :)
This is actually pretty cool, but I don't know if any pirate copies back from 1990s also do it. I have 3 pirate copies of SMB3, all have item select cheat, but no infinite star power.

***51. Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Jima (JPN version of Hudson's Adventure Island, infinite extra lives)*
For some reason, I didn't even notice that thing. Thanks to FCst1993 for the info.
So, it turns out that if you die, you don't actually lose any extra lives, you will be still having 3 extra lives. You don't need to worry about having no Hudson Soft bee that would help you to continue after losing all extra lives and getting GameOver.


***55. Kirby's Adventure (EUR version)
Yes, they actually included Kirby's Adventure, as was mentioned before.
For this purpose, pirates decided to include the battery in the cartidge, and it actually works, but has the potential of not working perfectly all the time, so the save data might get erased at random time.
I tested this cartridge first on my portable Famiclone, and the save battery worked fine. Once I inserted it into AV Famicom, the data got erased somehow, so I'd need to start from the beginning.
It's still unusual to see this game among pirate carts, I'll tell you for sure.
I have this game CIB on Famicom, so I can play it perfectly fine there. ;)

***60. Tokkyuu Shirei Solbrain (JPN version of Shatterhand)
This version is with copyrights, and not a glitchy version, which was released on many bootlegs back in 1990s, and still being included on many carts from 2000s and such.
The glitchy version basically has no level select menu, and after Area A, you get to Area F, and when you beat the boss of Area F, you basically get back to fight him over and over again.

But here, the pirates included the original version, so it has no such glitch, and therefore it's beatable until the end. :)
Finally, the creators of this multicart realized that mistake, even though it took them 20 years or something like that.

***87. Lion King (SuperGame, no Bug Toss)
This is a pirate port of The Lion King from Sega Mega Drive, by SuperGame.
The version included here, just like the majority of other pirate copies of this game, doesn't have Bug Toss bonus level, and "SuperGame" logo screen appears for just 1-2 seconds, instead of 5-6, unlike in original version, that has that bonus level.

About 95% of pirate carts back in 1990s that contained original version of Lion King by SuperGame, that's not mapper hack, which is on this multicart, they looked like this:
Take a note at "Sugar Softec" logo here.
Also, on some NT-xxx ID carts, there also was the same version, but the title screen could be glitched or something, but Bug Toss bonus was presented noneless. ;)
But it's 50 by 50 chance, that you'll meet the original version, because on other cartridges, it could be just MMC3 mapper hack again.
And the most common copy that you could come across, looks like this:
And take a note that all have the same label, but there is like 95% chance that on "Sugar Softec" copy, you'll find the original version, on NT ID carts it's 50 by 50, and on L-N2, the chance to find it is even lower.
Not worth mentioning that on modern bootlegs, you aren't likely to find the original version with Bug Toss level, there'll always be MMC3 mapper hack.
But, also, in order to close up the discussion about Lion King here, on some SuperGame multicarts, like this, you can find the original version. ;)

***93. Felix the Cat (US version)
Besides the fact that this is original version with copyrights, there is some weird glitch that appears on the levels. There are some weird two blocks in a vertical line in the sky, which don't do anything.
Last time I checked, this appears only on pirate copies of Felix the Cat, produced after 2000s.
Or... this could be a bad ROM of the game.
I had a singlecart before that featured the same glitch, but the whole game was beatable noneless.
Here there are the screenshots of it:
Presented as white random sprite blocks in the sky.
You can see them at the top left corner.
Here's another shot.
And another one.
I don't think it's a good idea to stand in these blocks...
You can actually stand inside those blocks, but this is pointless, and doesn't do anything for gameplay progress.
But it's still worth mentioning that this glitch exists.
Because, on my old bootleg cart from 90s, doesn't have this glitch at all.
I am sure that official NES cart doesn't have it too, but I am not collecting NES carts, so this needs to be checked by people, who own NTSC NES cart of Felix the Cat, and see if this glitch exists there. ;)
I bet it doesn't, because the majority of pirate copies of this game back in 1990s had copyright info unchanged, and they were pirate copies of NTSC version.
Here's the video of it in action:

***95. New Ghostbusters II (JPN version)
On this multicart that I got, there is New Ghostbusters II, the Japanese version that's with top view, and two ghostbusters to choose at the beginning.
It's considered by many to be a much better game than Ghostbusters II by Activision.
 But, actually that's on the copy that has "Mario" icon on boot up screen. On other ones, that have "Sonic-kind of" icon, there is actually Ghostbusters II by Activision, and as seen from reviews of other people, it's also glitching up on levels very badly for no apparent reason.
And interesting thing is that, the ID on the main menu is the same. Kind of odd, why they decided to include that game on some versions of 150-in-1 PocketGames, but thankfully, they actually included New Ghostbusters II on the one I own, because it's far better game to play, and probably the best Ghostbusters game on NES/Famicom. ;)

***101. Bucky O'Hare (US version)
The same situation as with TMNT3, on pirate carts there was also the version, where there is anti-piracy protection.
If the copyrights are taken down, then, in this case, main character you play as, will die in one hit.
It's like entering HARD! as a password, but it's unavoidable here, the game becomes much harder. Even though there is a life bar, it's completely pointless here.
Thankfully, they included the version with copyrights, and US one as well (on pirate carts back in 90s, you'd usually find JPN version, and the 1-hit version would also be in JPN, funnily enough), so it's far easier to play it, even though the game itself isn't too easy to beat by my experience.

***114. Aladdin (HummerTeam, MMC3 hack, background animation missing)
It's basically Aladdin, the port of SNES game. ;)
On pirate carts, it's probably the most common version of Aladdin ever.
The lesser common versions would be the one by SuperGame, and "Aladdin II" that has terrible graphics & music.
And in its original form, the HummerTeam version of Aladdin is kind of rare to find on bootlegs.
In original version, everything needed was presented: the music, the background animations and all that.
In more common versions, that were mapper hacks, most of the music, as well as background animations were missing, resulting into having no BGM during gameplay, as well as no animated lava and sand, as well as garbled "The End" logo.
The original version looks like this:
Look at JY-025 ID on the cart.
Most of the cartridges with this label, and JY ID should contain the original HummerTeam/JY Company version.
On most pirate carts with MMC3 mapper hack, the label was like this:
 The ID is missing, and the label seems to be not as in great quality as the above cart.
Here, on my cartridge, it says Aladdin 4 on the title screen, but on other versions, it would also say "Aladdin II", or just "Aladdin", and the copyright information would be also changed from "1995 Copyright" to "1996 Copyright".
Or both would be unchanged, but for the most part, on MMC3 mapper hacks that don't have all the music and are missing background animation, they would having at least one of the things changed.
Another copy shown here, with MMC3 mapper hack of Aladdin.

But on newer copies of Aladdin, pirates took care to include a version of Aladdin with all the music!
Sadly, it's still MMC3 mapper hack, and the animation is screwed up, but all the tracks are presented.
And this is the exact version that is presented on this 150-in-1 PocketGames multicart.

I am half satisfied, half disappointed with it.
Satisfied, because they fixed one problem, which was the missing music.
Disappointed, because they couldn't fix the background animation problem.

***122. Tank 1990 (Battle City hack, 1A-2N mode menu)
Unlike on many other multicarts that have Tank 1990, this actually includes a menu, where you can choose any difficulty mode you want: from 1A to 2N.
This also depends on if you'll have some weapons, like the ship to be able to go on water, or if enemies will be able to collect power ups too.
On many other multicarts, pirates usually included only Tank A 1990 in the best case. But on most old multicarts from 1990s, they would have the version with this menu.
On many multicarts from the end of 90s up to nowadays, they would include only Tank A 1990.
So, that's definitely a thumbs up to pirates from me. :)


Overall, what I would say about this multicart? Is it worth buying or not? How does it compare to other multicarts that contain a large number of games? Is it better than 400-in-1 Real Game?

Well, I would say that this is definitely one of the best multicarts ever released for Famicom.
There are many great games included, most of them being the games from late 80s to 1990s, as well as a few early Famicom games.
Some of the games are pretty rare in original form, others are pretty common, but also really nice to have on here. Many great game series included, like Donkey Kong, Double Dragon, Chip and Dale, Adventure Island, Castlevaia, Ninja Gaiden, etc..
There are some cons about the included versions of games, as well as save battery for Kirby not always working perfectly, but overall, there are much more pros, than cons, I can tell you that for sure.
The menu system is pretty cool, even though it takes some time to load the games, and start up this cart.
It's compatible with original Nintendo hardware (I took all the screenshots and videos right from AV Famicom), full-hardware clones, NOaC Famiclones and such.

Also, many people compare this multicart to 400-in-1 Real Game and say that 400-in-1 is shit, while 150-in-1 is awesome.
I wouldn't agree about 400-in-1 Real Game, because it's good enough for having a lot of early Famicom games put on it. If you are not a fan of them, then simply don't get that multicart and get disappointed afterwards. :P
I say this, because I actually love early Famicom games, and like them even more than, for example, Battletoads, Battletoads & DD or Legend of Zelda, or many other common games that people sometimes seem to overrate.
So, overall, if you really like the games, released in the end of 80s, and in 1990s, this is the multicart that you certainly should buy.
And in fact, every Famicom pirate carts collector should own this cartridge, because the multicart is really unique, as it has many great games included.

And in short, here there are pros and cons of this multicart.
=PROS=
- No repeats
- Many great and recognisable game series, like Castlevania, Super Mario Bros, Rockman, G.I.Joe, Adventure Island, Ninja Gaiden, Flintstones, Terminator, Kunio Kun Nekketsu, etc.
- Includes some rare games, like Little Samson, Flintstones 2, Summer Carnival 92 Recca, Power Blade 2, etc..
- The majority of included games retain copyrights completely unchanged
- Easy navigation in menu
- Colorful and very awesome looking menu
- Compatible with official Nintendo hardware, hardware clones and NOaC clones
- Compact cartridge

=CONS=
- Takes some load time between booting the cartridge and starting the game
- The save battery doesn't always work
- Some included versions of games are European PAL versions, and not Japanese/North American NTSC ones
- The versions of Lion King and Aladdin aren't exactly original versions, released on standalone carts back in 1990s, so there might be some glitches in those

So, I would say that this, along with 400-in-1 Real Game that I reviewed some time ago, is one of the best multicarts I've ever come across, and it's definitely worth buying.

  1. Hi Alex, I recently bought this game and played succesfully on my retro duo console. The problem is that on most of the titles I Just cant select the 2 players options, like in Ninja Turtles games or Contra. But I actually can select 2 players on Double Dragon. Did anything like this happened to you? Thanks

I just got one of the NES cartidges from ebay, but mine don't have nether Mario or Sonic, actually doesn't have any intro logo, jumps right to the menu, on the other hand it has the japanese Ghostbusters II and the Felix the Cat doesn't have the two blocks glitch, probably what I've got was a new version or a pirate version of the pirate original version? :P I enjoyed, besides some of the games I already have, and I would like to have others instead (like Metroid, Final Fantasy, Sky Shark, Timelord, Zelda II), but it's a nice cartidge for these times where is more hard to find NES games with decent price tags.

  6. I got the 150 in 1 Nes multicart this week. At first I was very happy about my purchase, the cartridge offers a great selection of games. But, the second time I played this cartridge, I experienced some game-breaking issues in Rockman 1. The game keeps resetting at some random points. It can happen when it's expected too,for example, if you press start quickly several times or when you collect up health refills. It can also happen for some other reasons I'm not aware of. I'm still wary of it, not so sure what to make of this cartridge, but I'm afraid not many people have made critical reviews on those cartridges to inform others about those things. Still, I got it pretty recently, so I have to play more to make absolute sure other games will work at least reasonably well.
