42 in 1- The Game

I came across this game in EBay when a seller posted it claiming he could not get it to work with his system. Intrigued by the fact that it was not only 1 game, but !FORTY TWO! in one game, I said hell, why not. Seven bucks and 4 days later it arrived in the mail. This version of the 42 in 1 is not the Famicom (Japanese) cartridge, but the NES version. I recently read a great review on this game written by Lanny Cox who owns the Famicom version. What is cool is that I have never came across a 42 in 1 with a conversion like mine.
The graphics are pretty cool and different. There are shape shifting robots "a la Voltron" and even cutesy penguins. Some of the games are not U.S. released and that amazed me because they are actually pretty good.
If you are ever lucky enough to come across this cartridge, give it a shot!
