Super TV-Boy

Last child of its family, the Super TV-Boy (aka TV-Boy III) is basically an Atari 2600 clone, embedding 127 games which actually are pirate renamed versions of old Atari games. With its new design and its detachable control pad, the Super TV-Boy may be considered as a DeLuxe version of the well known TV-Boy.

This cheap system was made in asia and sold in Europe by the french company Akor and is definitely rarer than its predecessor and its numerous clones. The system uses a bank switching technique and the 127 built-in games are accessed via an on-screen menu (the 128th program) so there is no dip switch as seen on some pirate x-in-one cartridges. This menu (that seems to be located at the lowest address of the ROM) is executed by default when the system starts and once a game is selected, there is no mean to come back, so one needs to restart the system to play another game.

We need more info about this console ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).
