    Reviewed by amptor
    GBAtemp member amptor just submitted his review of the Neo SNES Myth Cart, a SNES flash cartridge designed by the NeoFlash team.

    Is this the cart that will revive our beloved Super NES forgotten in the garage under a 3 inch layer of dust? Let's find out with this excellent review. Thanks to IC2005 SmartShop for providing the review sample.

    Nice review,
    Got one myself.

    But:

    - There's SD support
    - There's an alternate Snes menu and it now has GG/AR and automatic Region fix support:

    Yeah, 200 bucks is a pittance compared to the olden days. Kids these days want everything to be $7. :/

    Nice review Amptor, and thanks for the extra info DjoeN. [​IMG]

    This would be an instant buy for me if it had special chip support, but reading their forum other readers are very pessimistic if it will ever be possible to implement it.

    Weird, I never paid more than a hundred for my copiers (except for the Super WildCard). I think people in HK just jack up prices for foreigners! Hahahaha~

    After four years Neo comes up with a cart that you have to program with a computer and plug a GBA card into. I can't think of a worse way to design a cart. Let's get a review of the Retrozone cart. It's $140, drag and drop and uses a CF card.

    Got to agree on that, NeoFlash should have gone for SD/CF instead of the Neo²/Neo kit and use 128 Mbyte instead of 64Mbyte, like retrozone
    As for SD, it has SD support (i think there still improving it) through the Neo², but it still is a gba sized cart and an extra buy.

    is there any reason for it being insanely overpriced, like expensive parts to make it or something. i'd buy one just for the heck of it if it was cheaper but i already own every snes game i want to play and if i think of another the original cartridges arent that much.

    There is a reason as a matter of fact. You have to plug an overpriced GBA cart into the overpriced SNES cart to make it work. The result is an overcomplicated overpriced cart. I'd just take the $200 and buy any games I wanted to play. The whole point of one of these is supposed to be to save money not spend more that if you bought the actual games.
