Uncmelody sequence

The Unchained Melody Multicarts are a series of multicarts known to be bundled with most of the Famiclones and usually have an 8-bit rendition of "Unchained Melody" by The Righteous Brothers. All of these multicarts have approximately 6 games when claiming to have many more, a common issue with Famicom multicarts.

While the carts do have only a few different games, most of the entries start the game with different memory hacks, most noticeable on Super Mario Bros.: it's possible to warp to any world possible (including the glitched ones, starting from 9-1) or enable the "moon gravity" mode. Also, Galaxian and Lunar Pool, depending on the selected menu activity, warped the player to a different level (in case of Lunar Pool, with the internal stage selection disabled). The many modifications of Tank 1990 were split into different entires on every such multicart, while Duck Hunt and Wild Gunman usually had their modes separated one from another this way.

This series became incredibly popular among the ex-USSR countries and is usually noted for having the best visuals and music among the other multicarts.

Versions Edit

83-in-1 Edit

Has a "83-in-1" red title in the intro. Instead of "Unchained Melody", this multicart uses an 8-bit rendition of "Summer Wine" by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood.

100-in-1 Edit

Has a "100-in-1" red title in the intro. Actually, it's a hack of the "83-in-1" because hidden self-test (Select+Start) has "83-in-1" in the title and ROM check is failed.
