I see it's not mentionned anywhere on the site but the SuperVision was released by Tiger Electronics in Taiwan as well. (Taike, not the Tiger we know in America, they seem to have copied Tiger's old logo).

All righty then! The page for the single-game cartridge version of Cross High actually has some content on it now, but don't get excited 'cuz it's just some screenshots and a note about the (non-)ending.

While preparing this stuff, I've been listening to the soundtrack of the far superior Motocross Maniacs for the Game Boy: the game Cross High poorly ripped off. Irony? Or just common sense? Maybe a little bit of both.

Hello, I'd like to say thanks for setting up this website as it's good to have a site that documents all of the games, hardware specs and such. I was always curious why several of the games have a copyright date of 1991 when the system wasn't released until 1992 though. I'm also suspicious that Bon Treasure and GTC were just pseudonyms for Watara to try and make it look like there were more companies developing games for it,  though I haven't seen any confirmation of that. ???

Recent site updates...

• November 30, 2019:
The game instructions archive on the scans page was updated to include Italian language instructions for 2-in-1: Block Buster / Cross High, Delta Hero, Space Fighter, and Super Block. Not exciting enough for ya? Well, keep your eyes peeled 'cuz I've got a few blister pack insert scans coming along shortly.

• December 5, 2019:
Surprise!! I'm back with more blister pack inserts, as promised. So... it's not really a surprise. Anyway! You get 2-in-1: Block Buster / Cross High, and Soccer Champion. Soccer Champion's instructions have also been added, in English and Italian. Urrà! Soccer Champion had proven a tough one to find complete. And 2-in-1: Block Buster / Cross High, I noticed, was imported by a firm named Cammarota S.R.L., instead of the more familiar Watary Italia. Curious!

Wait, Italian? So that means the games were released world-wide?

I'm 100% sure that aside from that there will be other languages as well. Since MLX said these were released in Taiwan, i do expect Chinese in both forms, too.

Well, certainly. Look no further than my website for the proof: I have scans of game instructions in English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish... and yes, even in Chinese.

Woah! Maybe there's other languages as well. Like, portuguese.
