Another little Goodwill/pawn shop find

The Star Wars one is obvious and cost me 4 bucks. The Sega Genesis one ... I don't know what games are on that one ... that cost me 2. Haven't shoved any batteries in it yet.
Then there are the PS3 games for the system that is still in layaway. SF4 cost me 10 bucks because it was just the disc. And Killzone 2 cost me 15.
Then there's the REAL black sheep of the bunch. A plug and play game that obviously uses the NES on a chip ... 101 games in one. Check out these epic titles that are seperated into categories.
Commando Rescue (literally a straight rip off of Contra. From the gameplay to the sound)
Jumping Jay (It's like a really terrible 8 bit Earthworm Jim)
Little Blackmask (Kinda like Blaster Master)
Legend of the Lion (The Lion King basically)
Breakthrough (A surprisingly good Arkanoid style game with powerups and whatnot)
Falling Blocks (Tetris)
War at Sea
Red Line Racing
Lost in the Dark
This is one of those kind of things .... I got it specifically because I'd never seen it before. And I figured it had to be one of those "so many games in one" things. And, while there are a few games on it that are halfway decent, it's all killed by the most unresponsive fucking control pad I've ever laid hands on.
Example : There's a Tiger Heli style shmup in there (can't remember which one) and it's actually a pretty good little game with powerups and whatnot and I even got to an endlevel boss. Which is a lot more than what I was expecting of it. But you can't move diagonally.
The Contra game ... it's just as goddamn hard as Contra, yet you can't move when you want to move.
If only the controller was better.
Anyway, that's what I got. lol
