I've had several pirated carts with the same label or similar style label, unfortunately I think there is no way to find out what's inside because I noticed games are completely random in these carts. If you want to guess a specific game completely based on texting on the cart then maybe it is Raid on Bungeling Bay

By the way, I noticed this cart was located in Poland at some point, based on the sticker "cena" which means "price"


Interesting, interesting. Yes, the auction was located in Poland. But it also had a lot of other real cartridges in the lot. Pretty neat looking label even for a pirate. Thanks for the info.

HFC-CR (in the upper left corner of the label) is the product code for Championship Lode Runner, so it might be that...then again, it might not because pirate carts.

It can basically be anything. アタラシイテレビゲーム just means "New Video game" but if you search for the term you will find other pictures of pirates using the same label. The ones with the dip-switches are easily to identify as SMB2j or at least some modified FDS game. This stolen label created by Hudson (obviously) they just printed "Unbeatable Program" but in reality even the serial code of top left doesn't necessarily mean anything. I have maybe 3-4 of these and is just random Famicom titles (Early titles).

What game is this? There is no info when searching with the game name so maybe the name is invented by bootleggers and picture is stolen somewhere? Image attached.

I believe this is Fist of the North Star or Hokuto no Ken but I have no clue which part of the series it is

Retrospectives

Yep, is Hokuto No Ken. Northern Ken is what the Chinese translated from Hokuto = Northern Ken/Kobushi 拳 = First, so basically is just a direct translation whereas the pirates seem to have think the name of the character (Kenshiro) is Ken, because in Chinese is pronounced Quan or something similar. Nobody say Kobushi about a fist when it come to fighting though....Sounds silly, Hokuto no Kobushi, ahahaha.  :D


P

In the Swedish version his name was also shortened down to "Ken" I remember. Probably Kenshiro is a bit hard to remember.

Yeah even in Japan version nickname is simply Ken. In fact no matter if made in TW or China, Japan anime was always huge (although most things Japanese in TW is popular), so I think they were aware name of him simply as Ken.

Hi. I found this Lode Runner cart that has this weird orange part on it with some sort of character and an empty box for a number. Does anyone know what this is? Is it some sort of competition cartridge or was it placed there by a store. Thanks. ;D

Google Translate says the writing on the sticker translates as "Roadrunner", so most likely a store put the game's name in Japanese there for the people who can't read English. Maybe there was some code in the empty box to help identify the product in their stock, but it's been rubbed out over the years.

That's a top label decal (it says "Lode Runner No"). They placed it on the front rather then the top. So; if I were you I'd heat that label up carefully with a blow dryer, remove it and place it on the top of the cart.


Thanks for the confirmation.

Yeah Roadrunner and Lode Runner both become ロードランアー, so it's just Google Translate messing up because it probably doesn't have "Lode Runner" in its dictionary (or it was too out of context for it to guess correctly).

Looks like some kind of label where you can enter your own Lode Runner number or something (competition?). I'd guess some kid just stuck it on there.

Hello . When i was 4 or 5 or 6 years old , i had a nintendo famicom with many games that it was broken . There was a game like batman but i don't think it was batman because i did very research about it on internet but it wasn't batman, OK? i don't know, maybe he was a ninja. I could play single player or multiplayer . There were two character in multiplayer mode like batman . A pink batman and a blue batman . I think Their boss was/were a man in a big television . Our hero( character ) was so small insofar as he could jump on television  , chair , pecil, desk, key etc. He must fight with his enemys in every last levels . At last level his boss in the television lies him and he could kill his boss in the television .sorry if i had many misspelling cause i'm from iran and i can a few speak english . Please if you know that what game it was, tell me here or tell me in my email adress : kiarashzanganeh644@gmail.com
Thank you❤
