SUPER PEGASUS
FLYING ON THE WINGS OF THE SUPER NINTENDO?
Welcome to yet another look at the dark side of the Famicom/NES era. This time around it's the Super Pegasus, and even though I've seen a lot of pirate stuff in my time, I've never heard of the Pegasus or seen a more direct rip off of an existing console.

Famicom clones come in various shapes from the SEGA Megadrive to the Nintendo 64 to Playstation 1 and 2 and the list goes on and on. Some of the most common one is probably the Super Famicom look-alike, also known as the Mastergames Supercom 72. Well the the Super Pegasus fits in the Super Nintendo rip off category, only it's looking exactly like a Super Famicom, even the cartridge lid is Super Nintendo shaped.

What tipped it off as a Famicom clone though was the joypad ports which is the standard "clone" 9 pin and the Famicom joypad expansion port in the middle. With that said, the shell is heavy and feel almost the same as a real Super Famicom, unlike the cheap plasic that most clones are made of.

The bottom side label of the clone is written in Japanese even though I believe this clone came from Poland, from a little research the Pegasus "brand" seems to have been quite popular there. Also, I wonder if it's the serial number that is hand written on the label.

It's a "30000GAME" according to the label which is quite odd as there are no built-in games, nor is there prepared for a "built-in" multicart anywhere on the motherboard.

I am not sure of the age of the clone, but PCB looks very old, so I'm guessing it's from the mid-90 judging from other clones I own from that era. It plays games well although I haven't been able to test it that much as it almost overheated when I used a powersupply with too many Milliamps in output and I have yet to find a proper powersupply.

All in all a pretty interesting clone which sure isn't like the rest.
