Work collegue gave it me but i've not heard of it.....Got the light gun for it too. It's boxed but looks a bit tired.

It's got a 2 pin power lead for Jap/Usa but just tested it with my Jaguar 9v power supply and works OK.

Just found the Mario copy/clone on it.

Might try and find a NES game cheap, so i can try, as the NES is one for the few mainstream consoles I don't own.
