    The LRG release at least some money is going back to IREM.... or whoever owns IREM's IPs as I think they are dead and gone at this stage. So you can be happy you are funding their next venture into Pachinko machines.

    I don't feel so bad about having it on an AliExpress repro!
    At least it's Famicom cart shaped!

    Great game though.

    I don't think I've ever played that actually. Will have a look on the oul Famicom Everdrive this evening when I get home.

    It's a real gem of a game. The parallax scrolling was mind blowing at the time, they faked it with animated background tiles.

    Agreed, barring the nice fancy packing etc, it's fundamentally the same as a DIY repro.

    First thing I thought was, 'surely you can get an original cart on ebay for less than 40'.

    Nope!

    I got it for 40. Then retronauts covered it....

    I'd hate to be one of those people going for complete collections of consoles in 2019. Loads of stuff sells out before it's even released.

    I kind of want to buy this now...however I preordered the Celeste physical edition for the Switch back in February from these dudes as well as Ultracorps a couple of months ago and am still waiting for both...

    They are releasing the first 3 monkey island games at some stage, even though it's a rip off I'll still pick them up!
