    Default are Bally Astrocade games with 'Astrocade' on the front more HTF?

    I have a Bally Astrocade and noticed some of the games say 'Bally' along the left side of the front label, having been copyrighted in 1977. Some have 'Astrocade' along the left side of the front label and were copyrighted in 1983. I know the history of the system, just seems i have considerably more of the 'Bally' version... are the later releases less common?

    Different games had different label variations made. Some games only had one label. It all depends on the game . Label variations epically for an obscure system don't generate a lot of interest other than the hardcore following. Astrocade Pinball is an Astrocade label variation that you dont see alot. Space Invaders is a Bally Label that is harder to find.

    Bally Alley is the best place for Astrocade info. It does not answer alot of your info, but gives alot of info about cart variations.
