- I would have just liked to the see the hardware-in-the-cart assisted
cartridge games released in Japan that boosted the system's capabilities.
Otherwise the rest of that stuff was available elsewhere. I'd love to come
across one of those cartridges one day, but I'm not holding my breath, as
Pyutta stuff from Japan shows up infrequently.

What video game translations would you have wanted to see for the Tutor?
(I am listing more Konami properties here)
1. Super Cobra (1981) (this is the military take on "Scramble" where
you have to pick up the booty in the 10th and final stage to win the
entire game (and then start all over again at increased difficulty), as
opposed to destroying the command base in "Scramble"'s 6th and final
2. Amidar (1981)
3. Time Pilot (1982)
4. Badlands (1983)
5. Roc 'N Rope (1983)
6. Track & Field (1983)
7. Gyruss (1983)
8. Circus Charlie (1984) - notable for the brief reference to Johann
Strauss' waltz "The Blue Danube," heard in the final stage.
9. Antarctic Adventure (1984) - the "Skater's Waltz" ("Die
Schlittschuhlaufer" in German; "Les Patineurs" in French), by composer
Emil Waldteufel, is heard throughout the game. This did see a release
on the ColecoVision.
