    Default Some Q's about Sir Lancelot/Robin Hood For Colecovision...

    I recently got this cart in a trade and was reading a bit about it. Apparently it was only released in small quantities in Canada and Europe as far as I read. But, the cart casing says "Made In U.S.A." I am guessing Xonox was making the cart casings in the USA but releasing this title only outside of the USA? Seems kind of odd to me...

    Also, the trader provided me with two manuals. One for Sir Lancelot and one for Robin Hood. But, the top corners of both manuals say "For Commodore 64". Either the trader just got these manuals for somewhat-completion or Xonox got cheap and used C64 manuals for the CV cart release? This is just another thing that seems odd to me as I ended up with nearly 50 games from the trader and nearly every CV manual is present with those...along with manuals for the CV itself, brochures and whatnot.

    If anybody has any insight it would be greatly appreciated!

    I can't really help, but on the back of the C64 manuals, does it say what companies programmed the games? Thanks in advance.

    I know towards the end of their lifespan some companies put manuals for whatever system they had on hand in other systems game boxes. I've gotten Colecovision instructions in my 5200 games before (Activision) so it's not unheard of. They probably just ran out of Colecovision manuals and thought that the C64 manual was 'close enough'

    Man I saw the AVGN review this game in his Colecovision video, and I wanted to play it, but then I see that it is sorta rare and probably expensive. Oh well.

    The 2600 version of Robin Hood is better, IMO. Unfortunately, that's very rare, too.

    Yeah, so? I have moved on to other things. Sorry I didn't get back with some company names, but I have many things on my plate lately.

    I kind of figured the manual pack ins were a "good enough" scenario in regards to the company.
