A real treat for 8 bit music lovers!
I LOVE 8 bit music and this was the perfect expression for my passion for 8 bit music! This is a REAL cartridge that plays REAL 8 bit music similar to a CD on the NES.

The music is just phenomenal! There is a music selection screen. You can have 1 song repeat or have it play through the entire way. While listening to this 8 bit musical glory, you can cycle through these amazing 8 bit works of art. The drawings are just amazing. There are also a few minigames to go with the music. I just put this game in a let it play while I am studying or something. Very nice!

This is a perfect follow up for my custom made BAD APPLE Touhou music video cartridge for NES. BAD APPLE plays the entire music video in 8 bit glory. This cartridge plays like a full length album.

This game has 2 bad points. The print is extremely limited and people say that after an hour, the cartridges would get hot and shut off. They need to rest for a few minutes before further use. There is an extra air pocket on the underside of the cartridge. Don't take this as a reason not to get it. I haven't experienced it myself. I only read about that.

Sounds nice, looks decent, feels awful
Chip tunes are a niche, and for what it's worth, this album is a neat idea.
However, the shell of the cartridge and the PCB are all of low quality and looks like a hack job. I expect this cartridge to have less than half the life normal FC cartridge has. You could probably just break the cartridge with ease, it's that weak.
The music is good and sounds nice. However, only few songs are actually good, and some are just highly irritating.
The minigames are not entertaining and serve little to no purpose. Visually it is mostly appealing, but a lot of images are just pixel repros of real life materials.
It's a collector's piece for enthusiasts only, and it's sorely lacking in a lot areas.
