It occurs to me, that I had quite a bit of difficulty obtaining this
one, and it could be a bit of a sleeper, indications are that it
was for some reason released out of sequence (late), I think
that this may later prove to be one of the more desirable
videopacs. as its fairly basic if it was released while the more
sophisticated arcade games were becoming popular this would
not have been picked up by all but the most ardent of gamers
at the time, thus quite rare.
|I suspect this cart should have been more games than 1, as its a
very simple, low graphic, puzzle.. that said, its quite enjoyable,
you have a sequence of numbers in a random order, you then
have to move the numbers along a set to tracks so that you can
re-arrange them into their correct order.
|· Information has recently come to light
(September 2006) that possibly this cart was never
released with a cardboard cover. Philips at least
were believed to have released all the games in the
early days in Cardboard covers, up until cartridge
26 when they started producing the carts in the
more robust Plastic cases, which they reproduced
the earlier carts with also (hence you can still get
the lower numbers in plastic). We also do not have
any evidence of the sierra or French only release of
this cart (other than Radiola) again unusual as they
made most up to this point, is it possible that
despite being in Philips early line-up of Videopac
carts the release of this was greatly delayed past
sierras involvement and Philips cardboard days.
Now Philips up until the release of this cart was
producing them with shiny card covers that were
plain black with the cart number on only, they then
switched to card boxes with the colour cover (like
the plastic manuals), does this also have any baring
on the decision ???
Any further info would be greatly appreciated.
