What console is this? An Atari clone?

Post by Lok3sh »

Hey guys!

So a few days ago I remembered that I had this console from when I was really young. My first game console actually that a cousin gave me. I don't really know what it is and was wondering if anyone can give me an idea? I am under the impression that it is an Atari clone or something.
Here are some pictures!

So a little more info, it has like 32 games built into it, some of them that I remember being Fishing, Basketball, some kind of western standoff iirc and maybe a tennis?
Also I have this one game cartridge that is Donkey Kong. Although, even this looks to be some kind of clone? Is this even an Atari related console at all?

Would love some information!

Thanks!

It certainly looks like a 2600jr clone. Maybe you can proof this by plugging a real 2600 cartridge in? If this works, it is a 2600 compatible device.

Atari Officially sold a 2600 JNR with a 32 in 1 pack in cart, the styling and the parts of the machine look very similar to a real one indeed!

Unfortunately this console is back home and I don't have any Atari cartridges apart from this one. I remembered it all of a sudden and had my sister take pictures for me!

So I have been trying to YouTube an Atari Donkey Kong game to see if I remember it, but none of them ring a bell. But I searched for Tennis, Basketball, Fishing and a Western and realized that those were the exact games!! Tennis, Basketball, Fishing Darby and Outlaw!! Those were some of the built in ones!

Do the Arati cartridges have this little protection piece at the bottom that kinda flips over to reveal the chip when you put the cartridge in the system? Thats how the Donkey Kong one is. Also, I assume the Donkey Kong cart is a clone too?

Some do, some don't, depends on the game developer / publisher. So this won't prove for certain it is a Atari 2600jr clone or not.

After some asking and looking around, seems like this might be a clone by Funvision?

Here are two pictures I found of similar looking consoles with the same logo.

Still don't know if mine is a knockoff of the Funvision or an actual Funvision clone...

Also I realized that the game that is in my Donkey Kong cart is called Inca Gold. I just downloaded the ROM and its exactly it!

Though my cart looks nothing like those scans at the bottom of the page... I think mine is a pirated version. Not sure about the rarity of my specific cart.

If your cart is the 'donkey kong' in the first pic it's probably an original, this particular cart was released under several names, see the atarimania page.

Yep the first post is pictures of my actual console and cart. And it says Donkey Kong on the outside, but is Inca Gold on the inside! Cool to hear it might be original and or rare!
