    Default Any SMS games that have region issues in existance?

    As far as I know, PAL and NTSC games are great buddies when it comes to SMS.

    Yet, there is one game that has a problem, Sonic Blast from Tec Toy, apparently it won't play on US SMS

    Has anyone else run into an issue with this game or any others?
    These cartridges are dirty as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

    No, not that I've come across. All the PAL titles that I've played on my SMS (admittely, a handful) have worked fine.

    Yes, I ran across a couple when I was collecting. Street Fighter II would not play I believe due to the size of the cart (mbit wise) and I had some glitchyness with Chase HQ I believe because it was designed for 50hz, but it did play somewhat.

    I have a PAL New Zeland Story that will not play in my SMS but has no problems in my power base converter.
    I'm NTSC USA btw.

    Let me point you to my own Compatibility Issues Guide. Mind you, it's not 100% accurate or complete yet.
