I got this while on vacation in Mexico City at a flea market, there was a 2600 junior bootleg with it but I bought just the cart.

I know next to nothing about Atari stuff, and don't have a working Atari at home or here, so I don't know how rare or interesting it is or if it even works.

Here's a pic:



The game selection is controlled by the switch positions, there's a list on the back that tells you which game goes with each position.

Sorry about the crappy quality but I don't have a decent camera or access to photo editing software.



EDIT:

Here are the games on the cart, some might be crazy chinese names or not, I'm not too familiar with the 2600 library

sea quest
defender
fancy car
trap
air and sea battle
robin hood
bermuda iii

I've seen these kinds of multicarts for the VCS before and I think I even own a couple. It's really just a pirate cart. You may want to report it to digitpress.com/forum so they can put it in their guide. They don't put pirates in their guide, but for some weird reason, I think they make exception with VCS protos for reasons unknown to me. I think half of it has to do with the fact that it is often impossible to tell and memory is lost as to whether certain pirates were actually licensees.

I dunno. Cool conversation piece anyway. It seems these are/were common in Mexico, Central , and South America, especially Brazil.

Most multi-carts released for the Atari usuall have the Tele-Games logo on them. I have a few of these myself.
