It boggles the mind what people are still doing on these old consoles.  8)

It's just a hack of Smurf!

I have that one.  It's just a visual hack of Smurf.  It's too bad that they kept the music the same.

Didn't really think about it but now that I have a 7800 I can play 2600 games too. Might have to get this, looks incredible!

That you can.  It's one of things that makes the 7800 a great console to have.  :)

Well, looks like whoever got a copy of this has a very rare collectible now.
Nobody is saying exactly what happened but the game has been pulled from sale and it has been said it wont be returning. Speculation is Nintendo caught on and shut them down.

Really wished I would have got a copy, there was one on ebay that just sold for $120 after this all came to light so you know it's only gonna go up in value from here.

Just yesterday by the looks of it. It would be nice to know exactly what happened but seems they can't talk about it. I think it said if anyone has questions they can PM Albert though.

Too bad it was pulled. Only way to tell if Nintendo is responsible, wait for other Nintendo theme games to get pulled.

Considering how much Atari Age have got away with over the years it's not really a surprise to be honest.

The game was supposed to have a boxed limited run of 100 but ended up with 200 due to a mistake that was made.  Then it was supposed to be sold lose so that must be what has stopped (if he had any boxed ones left).  I hope he was able to sell all the boxed ones as that was a big financial investment.
