Just got my "101 Games in 1" controller in the mail. This thing is shameless.

Rate this Entry
The odd thing about it is, it takes 4 AAA batteries. But the controller is shaped fairly well, the buttons feel pretty good, and there are the regular A and B buttons, along with separate turbo versions of them ... though the directional pad feels a bit floaty, and there's a constant buzz when the thing is plugged in. But it was $10 brand new when it was actually being sold by the company, so I kind of expect it. The only thing that really annoys me is the fact that there isn't any light to show whether the system is on or off, and the reset button is placed precariously close to the Start and Select buttons.

These aren't my pictures, but they'll do because I'm being lazy right now.




And, finally, here's a list of the games. All they did was take a lot of the simpler earlier Nintendo games ... ripped out the copyright stuff and stuck them on there. :P

*1942
10 Yard Fight
Alpha Mission (which is some kind of weird Tetris style puzzler. And the only one I've found with a load time because there's speech)

*Balloon Fight

*Baseball
Binaryland
Bird Week

This is free software, and you are welcome to distribute it or modify it subject to certain terms ; read the copying file for details. You can fetch the source code for this program at pineighz.com. Oirignal by Microsoft Corp. Not licensed by Nintendo." Of course I probably got the URL wrong, it's in a really fucked up font. But you get the idea.)
Magic Mathematics (Donkey Kong Jr. math)
Throw
Mappy
*Mario Bros
Matching
Exeron
Nuts Milk (Title screen says "Nuts & Milk". Still doesn't make the title any better.)
*Millipede

Pac Land
*Pac Man
*Pinball
Pooyan
Porter
Mouse Shooting (Title screen says "Hit-Mouse and Copyright 2002)

Wars (Title screen says "Something in Japanese" Wars)
*Sky Destroyer (Neat little After Burner style game)
Slalom (Antarctic Adventure with different graphics)
Warpman (Soccer)
*Space Shooting (Space Invaders)
Sqoon
Star Force


Now to me there are a lot of really obvious good ones on this thing, that I marked with a little asterisk because I'm bored. But yeah. I can't believe they thought they were going to get away with this thing. :P

I just mainly got this thing out of curiosity, and because it was cheap. Hell, now at least I don't have to either dig out my Nintendo or fire up an emulator to play Super Contra or the NES version of Millipede.

    It's a decent system as far as these things go. I have one on our camper so I can get my fix of Karateka, Lode Runner, Pooyan, Donkey Kong and Mario Bros. I picked mine up at a Walgreens I think. There were quite a few others talking about them on the forums right after it came out.

    Yeah, Super Contra was the big draw for me, with Millipede and Arkanoid coming in a close second (and third, respectively)

    Just got down downloading a video of a guy beating Super Contra in, like, 16 minutes.

    Makes me sick. :P

    I picked one of at Walgreens tonight. It was in their discount racks for $4.99. A steal at this price. I will be giving it away as a prize for something

    haha There are actually still STORES that sell this thing?

    I saw them all over eBay for 25 or 30 bucks. ONE person had it for 9.99 (plus a little bit for shipping).

    I check THREE different Wallgreens and NONE of them had this thing. They just had the 50 in 1 that doesn't have ANY good games on it. lol
