So this might be my last batch of generic reskinned Sintax GBA platformers! Let's get these fuckers out the door!

Movie Version - Spider-Man 3

This is a fairly unusual one. I mean, not the game, that's exactly like all the others, obviously. What's unusual here is that Sintax directly recycled a title and artwork from one of their previous Game Boy Color games. Usually they'd at least change the number. Anyway, naturally, the two games are otherwise unrelated, and the Game Boy Color one is much more interesting.

Donkey Kong 2

He has no style, he has no grace / This Kong is a fucking disgrace

Harry Potter IV

Finally: the last ethical Harry Potter game! Step into the wizarding world(?) safe in the knowledge that JK Rowling isn't seeing a penny of royalties from this thing.

Ha Li Bo Te IV (哈利波特IV)

Thanks to yy小龙虾 for this dump!

This is the Chinese version of the above game. Only the title screen seems to be different.

I used to never see these things on eBay, but I think your website might have helped them gain more notoriety, because they seemed to have become a bit more common (that or I just was not looking hard enough). On the wiki, an emulator called the YJ Emulator is mentioned, that runs Mega Drive games on a GBA. Is that thing related to the YJ Encryption seen on these carts?

Yeah it was made by the same guy. Naturally it has copy protection too.

Just out of curiosity, was Sintax the only company to use YJ?

No, apparently YJ is the initials of the guy who developed the protection tech but various companies used it, it's common for bootleg Chinese (and English) translated carts to use it too
