Retro Scan of the Week: “The Next Step in Nintendo Entertainment!”

February 13th, 2006 by Benj Edwards

This 8.5″x11″ fold-out flier probably came with a Game Boy game, circa 1990 (My brother bought Ishido back then, which is on the flier, so that’s probably it). The Dominator controller looks pretty mean, doesn’t it? I saw one of those only once in person, at a local Hamfest. I would have bought it, but it was beat up pretty badly and covered with 10 years’ worth of kiddie-grunge. The Dominator had the unique ability to turn all NES controllers into “wireless” controllers — you could plug them into the sides of the stick and the Dominator’s infra-red link with the NES (courtesy of a special IR receiver) would do the rest. Anybody have one? I’ll buy it from ya.

    Ahh, unlicensed gaming. My friend actually had that Penguin Wars cart. Pretty fun.

    Not unlicensed. You can see the seal of quality on each one of those games.

    Yeah, Penguin Wars was a lot of fun, actually. (sigh, memories…)
