Hi. I am currently going through my SMS games and detailing in a spreadsheet which I own (and which remain).

I''ve come across something that has confused me - Captain Silver but with NO barcode on the back of the case.

Have you ever heard of this? The items I see on Ebay all have barcodes, where my case instead has an empty space (just the squares of the standard SMS game box).

The game appears legit, and works on my PAL SMS.

What do you think?

Never liked the controller for the Master System. The D-pad felt way too imprecise and mushy for my liking, and the buttons just didn''t feel good when you pressed down on them. Thankfully, you can use a regular Genesis controller instead.

the Power Supply was big and the RF out cables where long

Alex Kidd was only built-in on early models of the U.S. and European Master System 2, it was later replaced by Sonic The Hedgehog. As the Master System 2 was never released in Japan there is no built-in Japanese version. All cartridge versions regardless of country have the rice ball, all built-in versions have the hamburger. The most likely reason for the hamburger in the built-in version is that this version was never intended to be released in Japan and was therefore "westernised".

Remember the master system 2 also came pre installed with the classic game"Alex Kid in Miracle World". Two versions of the game were installed on the machine and can be identified by the meal he eats between levels. On the Jap model he is eating a rice ball but on the American and European model he is eating a hamburger

SMS II - one cool device!
I had one with Sonic the Hedgehog built-in.
The first game I've bought was 'Ultima IV' with a A2 format map and two thick books. Every game was sold inside a standardised cover which included the cartridge and a short info about the game. Nice!
