Will you include Fatso! ?

Yes, when it is officially released [unless it has been?] (or there abouts). No worries.

"SEA RESCUE" is a homebrew and therefore can not claim to obtain a number (Videopac 73?) reserved for official games and for prototypes.
 
However the exception that proves the rule is "ROUTE 66" (homebrew) who got the number 66.

Question: Why Retrogenesis hasn't numbered its 3 official games (not homebrews): "ROBOT CITY" as #70? ...NIGHTFIGHTER as #71? ...and POWERLORDS as #72?

So this "SEA RESCUE"  by Rafael will be released in format VIDEOPAC + SR with letters instead of numbers and will be released on O2 as RC-001.

Another question: Does a homebrew must have the PHILIPS logo or should it be unbranded?

Okay. First, there are no rules, and hopefully never will be (show me where everyone agreed on these 'rules'. Each producer to their own in my book.

Retrogenesis hasn't numbered the games, because he hasn't. Simple as that.

Frankly, I think Sea Rescue should be RC-001, VP and 02 versions. It is RC, not an official VP #. I really don't see the big deal with this. But again, each to their own. Do what you think is right in your book. I'm just happy the games are coming out! Smiley


As for the Philips logo, in my book, it should not have it. It wasn't made or programmed by Philips, thus is should not have the logo. JMHO.

My opinion: "Old" prototypes should be released as close as possible to the original, with numbering. Homebrews can be released in what style ever the author wants. However it always looks good, if all games from the same author are released in the same style.

There's a tiny error in the list on the first page: only 9 copies have been made of Power Lords by RetroGenesis.

I trust you on this. Was sure it was 10, but honestly don't remember exactly.

Yes, the plan was to make 10. I would send 9 PCB's to Andy and keep the 10th, and he would send me the printed manual and cartridge label. Since he never send them to me, I never made the 10th PCB. (The same for Robot City and Night Fighter.)

Iīve been thinking whatīs deserve to be included on this list. Some examples.
1) Here, thereīs a guy that made: a)Repro of the 6 rarest brazilian games; b) Repro of some new releases (I totally disagree with this), like Amok, Mr. Roboto, and C) Repro of prototypes like Robot City and Shark Hunter. d) a Multcart
2) I remember someone, in old forum, made some copies of NTSC Frogger, and sold it on eBay
3)Finally, the first release of Route 66, I see it much more like an "unautorized" copie, since we donīt give it an OK, we couldnīt check the manual. In fact we even knew the game was already released (just some days later).
