Idea-Tek Corp. (安碩企業有限公司, Pinyin: Ān shuò qǐyè yǒuxiàn gōngsī) was a developer of NES/Famicom games active around the early 90s, founded by the boss of Joy Van after that company was merged into Sachen[1]. They had good ties with Computer & Entertainment, handling the distribution of their first game, Zhan Guo Si Chuan Sheng. Its games and the company itself were acquired by Micro Genius around 1991. Idea-Tek disappeared some time later on the same year after the release of Poke Block. It is unknown if they disbanded or if Micro Genius dispatched the members in others development teams.

GamesEdit

Self-publishedEdit

These games were released between 1989 and 1990. They were likely all retailed with a small instruction sheet[2].

  • Puzzle (ET.01, 1989 or 1990)
  • Xiao Ma Li (ET.02, 1989 or 1990 Copyrighted to Nei-Hu Electronics)
  • F15 City War (ET.03, 1990)
  • Pu Ke Jing Li (ET.04, 1990)

Super MegaEdit

Not much is known about Super Mega. Unlike the first self published games, Super Mega retailed the games with cardboard boxes and instruction booklets.

  • Enjoyable Horse Racing (1991)
  • Mahjong Block (1991)
  • Rad Racket: Tennis Deluxe II (1991) (Unconfirmed)
  • Venice Beach Volleyball (1991)

Micro GeniusEdit

After the buy-out of Idea-Tek, TXC released their library, with the exception of Pu Ke Jing Li, under the Micro Genius (MGC) line, sometime with updated copyrights. The only MGC exclusive title being Poke Block, an update of Mahjong Block for western markets.

  • Poke Block (also known as Stakk'm) (MGC-012 and MGC-004?, 1991)

TriviaEdit

  • Idea-Tek eventually ran out of money around 1991. TXC bought them at that time.
  • Derek Sung, Cony's main programmer worked in Idea-Tek.
