Game Man

(1989-1998)

Logo: On a white background, we see the Mindtendo logo, in black, slowly moving toward the middle from the top of the screen. If the cartridge is not inserted, the Mindtendo logo is replaced with a black rectangle.

Variant: If the cartridge isn't all the way in or is corrupted, the Nintendo logo is a mess of pixels.

FX/SFX: The logo moving.

Music/Sounds: Just a "bling" sound when the logo stops in the middle.

Availability: Seen on Game Man games when they are played on an original Game Man. However, this logo is plastered over with the Game Man Color logo when starting up an original GM game on any other console (excluding SMES, which uses the logo below). The best way to find this is look for a gray banner on the left side of the box with the "Mindtendo" logo on top and GAME MAN filling the entire rest of the banner. This may be preserved on the Virtual Console on the 3D Two-Screen as well.

Scare Factor: None to minimal.

Super Game Man


(1994)

Logo: On a black background, we see a white Mindtendo logo on the bottom with the "registered" symbol. Sparkles fly from left to right to write in "
Super" in red, and "GAME MAN" in blue fades in below.

FX/SFX: "Super" writing itself in, "GAME MAN" fading in below

Music/Sounds: A different "bling" sound, almost sounding similar to the first part of the GMA jingle.

Availability: Seen on Game Man games when played on the Super Game Man add-on for the SMES.

Scare Factor: Low to medium for the music and dark background.

Game Man Pocket


(1996-1998)

Logo: On a white background, we see the text "GAME MAN" appearing letter by letter.

FX/SFX: The letters appearing.

Music/Sounds: The "bling" sound from the first logo when it is complete.

Variant: When there is a cartridge inside the Game man pocket, the Mindtendo logo appears at the bottom.

Availability: Seen on Game Man games when they are played on Game Man Pocket.

Scare Factor: None.

Game Man Color

(1998-2002)

Logo: Same as the previous logo, but "
GAME MAN" is in blue. When a cartridge is inserted, the Mindtendo logo appears below it in black.

FX/SFX: See second logo.

Music/Sounds: See second logo.

Availability: Seen on all Game Man Color games. This logo is also unfortunately used to plaster over the original Game Man logo when starting up an original GM game on Mindtendo 64 and Mindtendo Game Square. Also used while playing the Game Man Advance on any classic Game Man games. Again, the best way to find this is look for a gray banner on the left side of the box with "GAME MAN COLOR" filling the rest of the banner. Might also be seen on the 3D Two Screen Virtual Console as well.

Scare Factor: None.

Game Man Advance

(2001-2007)

Logo: We see the same "
GAME Man" text as before, in the same font and everything flying letter by letter (a la Arle Nadja Movies) from the bottom right corner of the screen. A sparkle goes across the words. When a cartridge is inserted, the Mindtendo logo appears below it in pink.

Variant:If you don't insert a cartridge in or the cartridge is corrupt, the Mindtendo logo never appears.

FX/SFX: The letters appearing.

Music/Sounds: A harp-like sound when the text flies, and a "bling" sound in higher notes when the twinkle appears.

Availability: Seen before Game Man Advance games. Can be also seen when the Game Man Micro was turned on.

Scare Factor: None.
