Any love for off-brand clones?
General consensus or at least my personal opinion is that legitimate vintage ones that were actual chip-for-chip clones like Dendy are fascinating and I have a special love of keyboard famiclones. One SOCs appeared they're mainly worth discussing just for the case and controller design (I picked up Coleco and Intellivision Flashbacks when they hit $10 NIB) or as dirt cheap pcbs for projects (I picked up so many $1 Super Joys I actually stopped buying them before they dried up)
>>5655506the Unitron Macintosh clone was actually kind of better than the original 512ke.g.>two floppy drives instead of one>probably easier to replace components
>>5655506Yes, they are just precious. Even the cheapest ones have a charm, I'm talking the even ones with the title screens removed from the games as if that makes it not piracy.
>>5655506I love this particular clone, especially the variant with the Famicom slot on the top. However I'm not gonna pay a fortune for one of them, to be shipped all the way from Osh'Kosh B'Gosh.Also, some pirated carts have some really WTF artwork. Pic definitely related.

>>5655506As opposed to "on-brand" clones?
>>5655506Eh they're okay.
>famiclone which has a floppy drive and special games for it
>>5657641What's this actually from?
Ya.Not really a clone anymore, though.
Early 90s "Family Game" clones are the best. Virtually identic to original Famicom.
