We know that some games were released in Europe
only, but theres a lot the other way around too.
Loads of games never made it to Europe (through the
official channels).These games can be considered
rare, or extremely rare. Australians have the same problems/advantages..
A shout out goes to Teflon in the UK and Keita in the US for helping me out.

NEWSFLASH!   In the States, A PAL Telesys Cosmic Creeps  was found.It had a large P on it and the label was different from the NTSC one. Deleto owns it now.

The PAL Data Age riddle is solved. In 1984 a company called Game World bought [the distributingrights for Europe from] Data Age and offered titles like Bugs, Sssnake  andAirlock. The cartridges are not much different from the original ones, only the Data Agelogo is replaced for a Game World logo.
