Aladdin Deck Enhancer (partially found games for NES peripheral; 1993)
The Aladdin Deck Enhancer is a peripheral created by Camerica and Codemasters in 1992 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Created by Richard Darling, the add-on allows software from Compact Cartridges to be played on the NES. The peripheral is noted to be extremely rare due to a limited run and it not being endorsed by Nintendo. Most of the original versions sold were found in a New Jersey store called VideoGameConnections in 1996.
24 games were announced at Winter CES 1993 at Booth #6329 with only 7 being released, Dizzy the Adventurer, Micro Machines, Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy, Quattro Sports, Quattro Adventure, Linus Spacehead's Cosmic Crusade and Big Nose Freaks Out.
The next three-quarters of releases in 1993 featured previously released games made without the Enhancer, along with completely original games.
Dreamworld Pogie is currently the only dumped game, while Adventure World Dizzy is theorized to be an early name for the dumped Wonderland Dizzy.
