To explain in detail my retro-gaming purchases made during my last trip to China, I decided to open the ball with a clone Famicom mint and boxed with excellent workmanship with a few cartridges say X in 1 (include several games in an). Before entering it into the thick of it, I want to digress and say that most of the things I'll show you in the coming days are obviously not official (except games Ique), and besides, I'm sure some of you will not hesitate to claim that these objects therefore have no value in terms of collection. I should mention that I'm not entirely agree with this concept because, as a true retrogamer I am also interested in different markets of video games in the world and their history. These versions, While pirates, are an integral part of the history of video games in China (countries where they are still officially banned!) and therefore in my view their place in my collection and my culture videogame. In addition it is very cool objects, exotic, and not very common in our region. Now I close this digression to introduce you to my new famicom.
For the record, it would seem that manufacturer This clone, Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, is well known in China for many years in various fields (from the appliance, game consoles) and that he regularly call on Chinese stars of the moment to its packaging. Chinese girlfriend of my brother immediately said seeing the box : “oh it's the same console that I had when I was little, I recognize the logo” (boxing gloves) followed by a “you bought mario?” and a hum the melody of Super Mario Bros. pretty funny. The age of the mark may explain why I find it really damn good clone.
What I like in this clone, apart from its box, its very low price, and design similar to the first Japanese Famicom, is above all it outputs a signal AV-Stereo where his colleague was proposing a Japanese connection via TV antenna. The second thing I like is that it manages all mappers graphics-specific Japanese publishers such as mappers BANDAI. Try, if you can, to run a DBZ game Famicom version on your NES, you'll understand what I mean : it is unplayable and full of glitches because the architecture is different consoles. This is surprising because the clones are rather known to cause compatibility issues with some games and then spend most stride ! Apart from the games with special chips as Akumajo Densetsu, cut. A really good point and in the end I am very happy with this purchase. One last detail, The console comes with a cartridge containing 4 games that are known as hacks license Contra or Jackie Chan.
Then, I took some cartridges compiling multiple games 1. Their purchase was not easy because the names and labels do not always correspond to the content or are relatively vague. But by digging well and hopefully also, I managed to find some very nice cartridges like this 245 in 1 Boxed, and containing a slew of excellent titles (Gradius, Mighty Final Fight, Against, Super Contra, Super Mario 1 and 2… ).
Although few of them are compatible with the original Famicom (glitches) these cartridges are ultimately quite friendly and not original?
