Displaced Gamers: Battle of the Bits – Nintendo Power, Mappers, and Circuit Boards

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!
