I just bought a mystery cartridge for my PCjr

Any guesses on what it is? I currently have zero PCjr cartridges, so whatever it is, I know I don't already have it, haha. I asked him if he'd sell it to me for $10 and he came back with an offer of $15, which I thought was a fair compromise, so I went with it.

I'd bet a BASIC cartridge, but I guess you'll have to plug it in and/or dump the contents to see what's what.

That'd be my guess, too. He seems to think it's a game, but I don't know what would give him that idea other than wishful thinking maybe trying to get more interest in it than a BASIC cart.

Ah, I see. Since his other cartridges were games, he thinks this one is as well.

Had to sand come corrosion off the contacts before it would work, but it turned out to be Demon Attack.
