I hate it when they only release games on Cartridge and not LTO Flash format as well. I'll NEVER be able to buy the Home Brew of Donkey Kong JR because 60 plus bucks is too much for one game wit blocky graphics, nostalgic or not 60 bucks is too much for one game. Why do they only make some games available in cartridge only format and then just discontinue it forever? If it's a issue of making back the production costs of the cartridge, no longer selling it won't remedy that. The cost to produce a ROM file is far less if none at all than a physical cartridge. With a ROM file you simply E-mail it to the person who purchased it, no shipping costs, no need to pay someone to box it and pay a shipping company to ship it out.
Also what happened to  Jr Pac Man being made available for free ROM download after they make up the production costs of producing the cartridge?
Why is Sea Adventure and Chopper Command available for free and it's from the same company Intellivision Revolution. Also you can get TNT Cowboy, Hover Bover,Steamroller,Ninja Odyssey, Miner 2049er and Anthropomrphic Force in LTO Flash Format for 20 bucks each because they do it the right way, sell games in ROM Format to build up the funds to produce the games on Cartridge. Same thing is true with Carl Mueller Jr, you can buy his DK Arcade games in LTO Flash Format for a donation of $20 or more and Ms Pac Man for $10. I also got Jaw Crusher for 15 bucks in ROM Format.
I buy video games to play them, not to collect them and put them on a shelf un opened just to look at them and brag about how many games I've collected but don't play because I but them just to collect them like people who buy Star Wars Figures just for the act of collecting them and maybe later selling them for big profit when they become rare and valuable.
