I'm searching for a tune hidden in some low end handheld games (can't remember the manufacturer). They were cheap "catch the falling objects" games with different themes (tennis, baseball, a submarine rescuing people) and when the game was over they did the mexican hat dance or yankee doodle tunes. If you press the "Game A" or "Game B" buttons and rapidly the "Time" button (which normally resets the game) sometimes it enters in a sort of non-silent demo mode and when you lose a life it does a very odd music.

I had 3 of these games but I can't find them anymore.

I got the tune from the LCD game "Pallavolo" (volleyball).

I am that uploader Razz
I found the game in a box of props my brother used to do some kind of "puppet comics". Its name is "Pallavolo" (volleyball). There is no clue about the manufacturer. The metal thing that makes sounds was disconnected so I had to keep it touching the wires with my fingers.

I think that this tune is an effect of a bug, as if the game was trying to read as sound some random code. The weird thing is that every game of the same kind had the same bug with the same noise.

Ahahah, vero! Non l'avevo capito e non mi ero neanche accorto che tu fossi italiano. Smile

Questo sembra lo stesso gioco, con uno chassis diverso, asta a partire da 11 scaduta qualche ora fa ed a cui nessuno ha voluto partecipare: http://www.ebay.it/itm/2907481.....141wt_1093

P.S.
Accidenti! Davvero interessante il tuo canale del tubo... Stici a profusione!!

Yes it's the same game. Is it yours? You can try to make it play the hidden tune!

tuo? Puoi provare a fargli suonare la musichetta segreta!

P.S.
