Idea-Tek Corp. (安碩企業有限公司) was a developer of NES/Famicom games active around the early 90's, 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 (TXC) around 1991. Idea-Tek disappeared some time later on the same year after the release of Poke Block. TXC apparently closed the company and distributed Idea-Tek development tools to their other studios.

Games Edit

Self-published Edit

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 Mega Edit

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

  • Enjoyable Horse Racing (1991)
  • Mahjong Block (1991)
  • Rad Racket: Tennis Deluxe II (1991) (Advertised but likely unreleased by Super Mega)
  • Venice Beach Volleyball (1991)

Micro Genius Edit

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)

Trivia Edit

  • 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.
