So I got very lucky and found a lot of nine 4 in 1 and four 8 in 1 Ozisoft multi carts. Also 3 games with unusual covers and with Ozisoft cartridges, which I assume are pirate games?
Interesting how the 4 in 1 and 8 in 1 come in different game combinations. I have:
M202 - Paperboy, Great Golf, World Cup Italin (sp)92, Wonderboy M204 - Sonic 1, Joe Montana Football, Double Dragon, Captain Sliver (sp) M205- Basketball, Shinobi, Tom and Jerry, Mickey Mouse
M210- Moonwalker, Donald Duck, Basketball, Shinobi, Mickey Mouse,Sega Chese (sp), Tom and Jerry, Outrun M211- Sonic 1, Captain Sliver (sp), Shinobi, Double Dragon, Basketball, Mickey Mouse, Joe Montana Football, Tom and Jerry.
I do know of the M206 which was posted on the forum recently : Link so that makes for a total of four 4 in 1 variants and two 8 in 1 variants that I know of. Anyone know of any more?
Anybody care to shed some light on the other 3 games? E-SWAT, Paper Boy and Mercs? Paper Boy has the publisher as Tengen and has a bar code 301037-0150. Mercs has Japanese text on the cover.Like I said, all three of these cartridges bear the Ozisoft text.
I will be selling/ trading some of these spares so keep a look out.
Nice! Never seen these in the wild (at least I don't remember, maybe in the 90s I saw them lol).
Wouldn't be surprised if the came from stores in Cabramatta in the mid 90s. Probably somewhat connected to HES, but not officially, maybe a few of their employees side project (speculating here). Might've also been sold in places like Parklea but I'm not certain cause it would've been once I saw them there.
Anyway these are rare as, 4 Pak All Action much more common (highly unlikely any copyright would be made on those games), and HES published MANY Atari/Nintendo games as well. But mostly what they're known for are accessories. They released some pretty decent ones, and they still make them to this date.
Pretty sure you can still buy retro games/accessories from HES if you knew who to talk to.
I bought these off a Nintendo collector, who had bought a fairly large general vintage gaming lot online here in South Africa.
Luckily for me he does not collect Sega and decided to get rid of these games which formed a part of the lot he purchased.
I'm pretty sure that all these games came from local flea markets back in the mid 90's. It was about the only place South Africans could buy games at a decent price. And most of the games available at flea markets were either pirate or multicart.
