If you are into NES games these days, you’ve probably heard the of term “mapper.”
While the details of the various chips used in NES cartridges are just a quick Google search away, a few of their abilities were mentioned in Volume 20 of Nintendo Power back in 1991!
I thought it might be fun to take a look at the four page article and add a few extra details to it – use it as a “Mapper Sampler.”
We also talk about console history and various companies bragging about their bits. Hope you enjoy!
