FUNTIME HOME COMPUTER - THE NEW SYSTEM
I WONDER WHAT THIS ONE LOOKS LIKE...
Are you ready for a fun time? cause that's what this clone is called.

If you havn't guessed it already this sad excuse of a Famicom clone is nothing more than a N64 design ripoff. Of course this clone doesn't feature an expansion port like the N64, I would be quite surprised if it did. Instead the spot where the expansion lid is, on the original design, is used for the console logo - The Funtime Home Computer.

A size comparison to a real N64 shows that they're identical, information like that really makes life worth living, doesn't it?

Well the clone of course feels like the cheap piece of plastic junk it is, the internals of the clone is once again a complete laugh. The clone uses a NES-IN-ONE chip board called "SAVIA 60P", also known as SN-2000A2 REV 2, featuring a sad gloptop chip on the bottom side of the board and there you go - one Famicom clone ready for gaming.

The odd thing about this clone is that it doesn't feature AV output but only RF signal, that's not common for NES/Famicom clones, either they feature both AV and RF, or just AV.

The funniest thing about this clone is the zapper, light gun, which looks like something taken from a Duck Tales movie. The saddest thing has to be the joypads then. Why on earth didn't they bother replicating the N64 joypad, now that would've kicked ass.

The system includes a few games built-in:

Mortal Kombat 3
Street Fighter 2 (12P)
Super Mario Bros
Tetris 2 (Tengen)
Road Fighter
Binary Land
Soccer
Duck Hunt
Wild Gunman
Hogans' Alley
Lode Runner
Popeye
Kung Fu
Battle City
Galaxian

There's nothing extremely interesting on the list of games to be honest. Had to asked me back in the day, 1998'ish, when the clone was bought in Marmaris (Turkey) I would've been extremely excited about the fast that it includes MK3 and Street Fighter 12P. Unfortunately these two games have been spotted once too many over the years.

Of course this clone offers nothing more than a waste of space, like any other clone. The funny thing is that it looks like an N64, I havn't seen one looking like this one since then, so I'm kinda happy that I picked it up :-)

Oh yeah, N64 cartridge lookaliges for the Famicom could also be bought back then!
