Sachen Game Bundle
Are you a retro gaming enthusiast looking for some new titles to play? We have some exciting news for you: One of our community members has purchased the licenses to a collection of rare, unlicensed games from Taiwanese company Sachen, originally released for the Mega Duck/Cougar Boy handheld game console in 1993. And the best part? You can download and play them for free, thanks to our generous community member!

Our friend Slaminger tracked down and dumped the entire collection of around 45 games from the original ROMs, which includes titles such as "Arctic Zone," "Puppet Knight," "Beast Fighter," and "Magic Tower." While these games were originally developed for the Mega Duck, they were later ported to the Game Boy in 4-in-1 and 8-in-1 cartridges without Nintendo's license.
It's worth noting that Sachen was a company that developed several original games for various cartridge-based handheld systems, including the NES and Mega Drive. However, all of their games were produced without license from the console manufacturers. The company no longer exists, so these games are truly a rare find. Slaminger was determined to preserve these for the retrogaming community and invested a significant amount of money to secure them.
It's important to mention that these games are not actual Game Boy games; they're custom-made games that resemble other games in their gameplay, but have different characters and layouts. So if you're looking for some new, unique retro gaming experiences, give these games a try!
We are able to redistribute these games thanks to the generous contribution of Slaminger, so we're considering including them in a retro gaming bundle with our Nova device. Stay tuned for more information on that.
In the meantime, if you want to check out these rare Sachen games, head over to the Internet Archive, where you can download and play them for free. Happy gaming!
