Atari 7800 32n1 Cart

This cart is just the 2600 32n1 with a new label. The green 2600 label is still visible underneath
 It contains NO 7800 games, its contents are identical to the 2600 version.
This cart was included as the Pack-In cartridge with 7800 systems sold in both New Zealand & Australia. These systems have "33 Games Included!" sticker on the box.
(The 32n1 + the built in Asteroids game)

 


"SwordQuest Earthworld" PAL

Normally found only in NTSC format this is the rare PAL version.
The manual and box text has English, Italian, French, German, Spanish & Japanese versions.
I have been told the code for the PAL versions of the SwordQuest stories is different to that of the NTSC version and that the game has been made "easier". These games were sold without reference to the competition for various prizes & the comicbooks that were included with the US version.




"Farmyard Fun" Multicart

Dip Switch selectable are the following games...
Mariana, Ice Hockey, Laser Blast, Space Raid
Boom Bang, Dragon Defender, Ski Run, Enduro


 



"KingKong" Tawian Pirate

While this looks like a Activision "Boxing" ripoff this game is actually "King Kong" (itself a "Donkey Kong" knockoff)

 
 




Kingsway 64in1 Video Computer Console

The most commonly found 2600 clone in New Zealand is the Kingsway System.
I've found over 8 of these systems over the last few years & so far have found 3 distinctly different sets of built in games....

 
 



SilverStar 64in1 Console

A few of these consoles have turned up here in New Zealand and while it looks alot
like a NES/Famciom clone is in fact an Atari 2600 clone with around 64 built in games.

These games were distributed officially in New Zealand by "Monaco Distributors" and normally have silver boxes with silver or white labelled carts.
