BootlegGames Wiki

The Game 27 x 1 is a reset-based pirate multicart for the original Game Boy, possibly released after 1992. It features 27 games without repeats and, being reset-based, no menus.

The cartridge itself is a standard grey GB cartridge, slightly thicker than a standard official Nintendo cart (making it a bit harder to insert), with a rubber button on the upper side (where the usual Nintendo logo would be) to switch game.

It's quite easy to switch games with the button, although sometimes when booting up (usually because of the button not making enough contact) it's hard to move out from the first game, but this can be fixed easily by opening the cartridge (that has a standard Philips screw) and cleaning the PCB.

The label on the cartridge is (seemingly) in Simplified Chinese, thus all the titles written on it are retranslations of the actual games' titles.
