Really great app! Has tons of features and information. The only feature it is lacking is a “do not own list” or “missing carts”. The app can tell you what is in your collection, so it should be able to show you the carts you are missing (manuals and such can be checked individually). This would super helpful when browsing video game stores. If you are the developer please consider adding this feature. Otherwise a fantastic app!

A Nintendo collector's best friend

In spite of already having the book written by Pat Contri that contains most of this info, I found that the unique feature with which you can keep track of your own NES collection worth the price in itself.

This is one of the best resources you can have on hand if you collect, thanks to all of the detail that went into compiling this app and its hardcover book counterpart - from label variations and region exclusive games, to info on some of the more rare and obscure cartridges (even non-licensed ones).

If you are new to the hobby - or are a seasoned game collector - this app is definitely a definitive guide on everything you could ever want to know about the NES library.

Great reference material

I love browsing through the boxes and seeing the old ads and viewing the 3D box model. It would be nice to add things like Nintendo power articles or other magazine coverage but I suppose that would have copyright problems. Also I wish we could tap on the game photos and ads and get a higher resolution version. The games all do have original text reviews at least! Adding SNES is fantastic and I hope they continue to add more systems in the future!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the great review! We will be adding a function soon where you'll be able to tap to zoom the screenshots and promo materials. We'll also be adding more systems (N64 will be next). Additional tips/codes/password content will be added on a regular basis.
