      Re: Rarities

      I don't have anything ridiculously rare but my Power Strike for the Master System in the condition it's in seems to sell for a good price these days. More than it cost when it first came out. My Rainbow Islands for my Mega drive is in mint condition and I seen it on Ebay in similar condition going for 100. I'm not one of these collectors who buy the games just for the sake of buying it, I only go for games I want to play. Nintendo World Championships goes for tens of thousands of dollars when it appears on auction but AFAIK it's really a rather shitty game. Because it was used in a national competition the games have a built in timer so you can only play each of the games on it for a few minutes at a time.

      One of the owners of Nintendo World Championships sent it off to the VGA to have it encased forever in plastic. They opened it up to have the cartridge and the chip board encased separately but the game is stored on an EPROM chip so exposing to light can blank the chip. That would be hilarious if the guy who spent thousands on it now has an empty EPROM chip that is now worthless.

          I am not sure if they are rarities but I had a Friday the 13th game on cassette for the C64 and a Falklands wargame on cassette for the Atari 600XL. And again on cassette Combat Lynx for the BBC Micro/Acorn Electron. The F13 game came with a capsule of fake blood.

            I had Combat Lynx for my Acorn Electron, it was fun if a little tricky to control with keys, & missiles attacks seemed to come at the worst possible moment.

              Combat Lynx could have used a joystick

                  I didn't have one, either. Using just the keys was difficult and I quickly became bored with it due to not being able to get far. I much preferred Gunship on the Amiga, for which I had a joystick.

                      This ??


                      Supposedly the very first computer game ( or was it first handheld game ?)


                      Anyways it's a rarely seen Mario brothers handheld game from 1983 .
                      Works perfectly as it's hardly been used at all !
                      In great condition apart from that surface scratch on the front case .image
