Title: PUB into Odyssey games
Post by: VideopacBelgium on September 20, 2009, 01:52:42 AM
Hi!
PUB into Odyssey games?
The Odyssey copy of TURTLES make pub for other games?
At the title screen, when the turtle arrives at her door, her house indicates "ODYSSEY PRESENTS TURTLES" ... after a short time, "PLAY ACROBATS" and "PLAY KILLER BEES"
Does anybody have informations about this?

Okay!
It was very strange for me when I bought Videopac 49 TURTLES in the year 1983 in Belgium because the intructions booklet showed the start screen with the word TURTLES on her house but no word appeared on my TV. This was strange and mysterious.
A few days ago I bought the US TURTLES for O2 and I saw the TURTLES word on her house ...and pub for other games ! Great !

That's the only difference between the U.S. and the European version of Turtles: they've removed these texts for the European release. Probably because in Europe they use different names for the same game in different countries.

Ha imagine how many times you would have had to push the "?" before all titles in all languages had scrolled.

But the later games 47+ had only a english and french name.

All european Videopac and american Odyssey2 games have been dumped.

Brazilian games with a number higher than 9461 have been dumped, except 9469 (O Gato e o Rato/ Mousing Cat). 9434 (Wall Street) has been dumped also. I expect that the other brazilian games are the same as the american Odyssey 2 games, but that has not been proved yet as far as I know.

I'm not sure about the french versions. So far only differences in on-screen texts have been found (translated from english to french). Below is a list of dumped french versions. Are there any other Videopac games (besides Turtles) with on-screen texts?

Dumps of french Videopac games:
1, 1+, 5, 6, 7, 11, 11+, 12, 18, 23, 24, 25, 28, 29, 35, 36, 40, 42, 45, 47, 52+
