    Wow, thanks for taking the video. After Bimini Run I figured these games would be pretty bad but daaaamn. They both seem like they might have been "designed by committee" with the publisher, but who knows.

    I wish I knew more about this company, it was kind of fascinating.

    was NuVision a company out of connecticut? I contacted the ebay seller and he said he picked these up from a local estate sale (the seller is from seymour, CT....and no, he does not have any more genesis games)

    Bingo! Westport, Connecticut. Gee, do you think Ron Leong, the president, might have died? He's still got a phone number listed as a Westport resident.

    Possibly the carts may have came from a former employee or who the hell knows really..... Either way, it would be great to speak to Ron Leong about these games if he is still around.

    Yeah, maybe, I don't know anything about the guy. My understanding is that Ron was publisher only, and these games were all developed by a company he contracted called Microsmiths. There are a couple interviews with the Microsmiths guys on GDRI.

    Ron's LinkedIn has his last gig (still listed as current) as President of "iGamz!," which I think is supposed to be iGAMEz. It's a Pressman toy, and his resume has him listed as a Pressman toy in the early 90s.

    I think That all screens shots are just what the doctor ordered. Thanks for sharing! I have read reports that BBB was never completed. Does it seem to be close to complete from what you have played so far...

    From the TS:
    "Beanball benny: playable, but very incomplete. The cutscenes even have developmental notes in them, like "Subway: trains not yet implemented". Hit detection seems good, but instead of restarting the stage when you die, you actualy progress further in the game. There are also numerous places where the stage just simply cuts off and you're walking in pitch black."

    Default And BOOM goes the dynamite!

    I figured this thread deserved a bump now that these titles just sold on eBay. Looking at the winning bidders I will say that these titles will be properly preserved.

    Do you know how to do an eBay completed item search?

    Beanball Benny brought $434
    Swamp Thing brought $530
    and Bimini Run brought $85
