Good find spoiled by being PAL

[Originally posted to rec.games.video.classic.]

This weekend I found very little. However, one of my finds was Demolition Herby by Telesys (my first Telesys game). Unfortunately, when I got it home, it scrolls like crazy. I assume that it must be PAL, although who the *&@#% in Huntsville, AL would have a PAL cartridge?!?!? To exacerbate the problem, my TV doesn't have a horizontal control. I tried it on three different systems (2600 jr., 7800, and 2600A). Anyone in the U.K. or Australia got an NTSC copy of Demolition Herby they'd like to trade? 1/2 8)

[The 8) is a smiley indicating I wear glasses. The 1/2 before it means I was half serious and half kidding about my question. After all this time, I might be misremembering, but I think it was when I bought this cart that I also saw a PAL copy of RealSports Tennis, which I didn't buy. If that's correct, it was at the Downtown Mission Thrift Store back when it was on N. Memorial Parkway between University Drive and I-565. As of today, I still don't have a NTSC copy of Demolition Herby. —March 7, 2010]
