Hi guys .  Among my collection I have a multicart that has a problem when playing it .  It worked well at first for years but I suddenly found  out that it no longer works well . I don't know if it's related but I guess that happened after a friend of my brother licked the cartridge because he thought it would increase its connectivity and it worked for a while then it became like that   
 And some games give black screen and don't work




These traces look broken for me. Check with a multimeter.

If they ARE broken, you can try to recreate that link by scraping off some of the solder mask and adding a tiny copper wire to patch the gap.
The contacts themselves also look terrible. Should clean them with IPA.
