Tank Command cartridge Real of Fake? You be the judge.


Recommended Posts

That cartridge might be a KevinMos3 hack to make it look better. I think he did that with Tank Command. He also did it with Rampage and Double Dragon. But, you would think KevinMos3 would have put his info on the label. I don't think it's authentic. I have never seen this variety before.

That's not the original cart.  I have that game that I bought way back when.  Little did I know how rare it would be.  Maybe @DegasElite is right and that is the hack from KevinMos3 on a cart.  Who's the seller?  I ask because someone just sold a hack of Centipede into Millipede and that was not authorized.

If it is from KevinMos3, then it should have had the Mediagenic information on it. But, it doesn't. This is a real toss-up. I know it isn't from Atari themselves. I never had heard of Atari acquiring Froggo Games, unless I missed something. It's probably a made-up label. It looks nice, though. My theory: someone found the ROM and burned it to a cart to make it a repro with his own label. Something is fishy here…

Tank Command is a 65KB ROM and when I asked AtariAge back in July about having a repro cartridge made they told me that because of it's size they couldn't make one until a batch of new boards they were testing were ready and as of now they still aren't ready. I wonder what board the creators of this reproduction used in their repro that isn't available to Albert at AtariAge?
