...that screenshot on the cover says it's the Asder PC-95 software. I'm guessing it's the polish version?

Nah, it says "LITTLE MASTER", but I believe the soft is very much the same as ASDER PC-95.
Yes, it is Polish localization, but I can't remember if the soft has also been translated and I don't want to break it open to find out, you know 8)

Very nice find!

I remember a looong time ago, well maybe about two or three years ago, I had seen some of these selling on ebay, a BIN.  I kept contemplating whether I wanted to purchase one or not, but the price would have been around $20 and then tack on another $15 - $20 for shipping to Taiwan, so I never did.  I always regretted it since, as someone snapped them up, haven't seen them since then, until I saw yours.  If you happen to find any more of these, please consider me, as I'll gladly buy one from you ;)

About the software contents:  I literally spent the last two weeks going home after work, every day, examining the educational software carts I own, trying out the games / programs, and then documenting what could be found where, all for the good of the book I am writing.  Aside from the dictionary programs, very few programs were actually localized, and they were all things like English Test and Instant Memory, games which had the express purpose of teaching the user English, via rote translation.  Some of those games have Korean, Thai, and Arabic versions existing, some have Russian and Chinese versions, so the cart you have might have some Polish localizations, or possibly the dictionary.

Very nice find!

I find the dictionary type software really interesting.  I have Thai - English and a Turkish - English dictionary carts if they sound unfamiliar and of interest for the book.  Hope that's not considered too much of a derail.

It was the same price as a normal one, amazingly.

Nice!  Was it I think Jay Ray that got one for a similar price some years back?  Great find, and one that seem to slip under the radar for most people!

Kind of looks like there is a label behind it. I could just be crazy.

The original game is the original game. The sticker or label was a prize that been won from Tokuma Soft. Once the game released they had competition and different type of stickers (Silver, gold, royal I think). Needed send in certain password occuring during stages. Not sure how many of silver existed but I think 2000 or something was awarded.

So is a reward sticker to put on top of the original label.

Oh I see. That makes much more sense.

The day has finally come! I checked the blog a short time ago so glad to see a new post!  ;D How long has it been since you last purchased something for the collection?

Was that the Exed Exes from a February eBay sale? I saw one in completed auctions and couldn't believe I missed my chance.

Thanks!

The collection has been on hold for about 3 years so I have a lot of catching up to do!

Nice to see you blogging again! The Lot Lot sticker carts seem to be a lot rarer. Check out this page:

Yeah. I bought another $1 game with it that I didn't need, just to make it look less suspicious. 8) $6.77 shipped for those two carts.

Just found my old childhood prize of Punch Out  :'( Is working but I not want to put any pressure to it, so I actually will have a repro done just so I can play the actual game without risk of wear and tear to my original.  ;D
