Super Angry Birds (Unl).
TThanks to Nikita600 for pointing me to this cart. Once again a new game has been found on one of the numerous pirate recent multigame carts. This is not a hack of something and much more interesting than others. The Angry Birds game for famicom not a surprize itself. There is at least one known FC-clone, and a lot more graphical character hacks of licensed games. But this time we have much more advanced clone, and it seems it was ported from Sega Genesis version, or maybe they shares some graphics and interface features. Main difference from other games is that this game uses the almost whole 256Kb ROM for storing DPCM samples used for music and sounds (regular 1-bit DPCM with DMA transfers), so there are no any other FM sounds in this game. The samples quality is very good for DPCM and I'm curious, why they didn't using it all the time, rather than implementing additional hardware PCM DMA channel in OneBus systems (see Gangnam Style recently).
Additionally note, that this cart using regular FK23C board with DIP-switches, and it of course have some additional menus and hidden games, which can be enabled with these menus. One of such menus have also a serial number KY2001, so there should be another cart with the same PCB and ROM, but different DIP-switch shorted.
For convenience I ripped AB as a separate ROM and it should work perfectly on regular mapper 4 board on any emulator.
