You know that screenshot is from a hoax version of the game?
Then again, your comment suggests you are.
(for anyone who needs the backstory: in 2005, some guy went on a game collectors forum called Digital Press and said he found a Bio Force Ape cart at a garage sale or something. Discussion exploded between the "ROMmunists" who wanted to see it dumped for everyone to play, and the "buttery" collectors (I know at least one ROM preservationist who had then stereotyped collectors as fat nerds) who wanted the game purely as a financial investment. The "owner" continued to make up the game's storyline, with nobody seeming to notice how it COINCIDENTALLY followed the exchange of insults in the thread, featurning an anti-communism ape fighting a butter blob who announces "I AM MADE OF BUTTER AND AM WORTH 2K MONIES" (as the collectors appraised a proto at about $2000).
Eventually the "owner" decided the prank had run its course and posted a photo of the fake cart smashed.
The prototype of the real game turned up in 2010. I remember seeing that cart also fake-smashed. Around the same time, another guy was working on a homebrew version of the game based on the hoax.

So this weekend I went to the London McM Comiccon, and for the NES got hold of Back to the Future Part 2&3, The Goonies 2, Xenophobe, Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja and Cool Spot. Now it's the Cool Spot that took me completely by surprise to learn this version was a puzzle game and not a Platform!

Yes, there was Spot for the NES and Game Boy, which was a port of a puzzle game. (I can't remember if the original computer game it was based on had the license or if that was only added in the port)
Then there was Spot's Cool Adventure, which was a Game Boy sequel to McKids (though in Europe and Australia both the NES and Game Boy versions were released as McDonaldland).
Then Cool Spot.

So I hear Joe & Mac is actually a hard to find game (at least the NES version, I'd imagine the PAL version even moreso). Though I thought the SNES version was better (all other versions were based on the arcade), but that might just be me.

Cool the Joe & Mac was a PAL copy no box, (and cost me £10), the rest were US. And I had McDonaldland on gameboy until recently. Had a bug that freeze the game quite far in so was never able to complete it.

Originally the PC game didnt have the licensed and was set as a budget game titled Infection, but then they added the license and increased the price.

Grabbed myself a copy of Final Fantasy Adventure. I wasn't going to get any more gameboy games, but it looked like it had never been played before, and it wasn't super expensive, either, so I bought it. Just played about 30 minutes, and it plays great so far. Reminds me of Crystalis (which I was just playing earlier this morning), except far more refined.

Watching a replay of Pat the NES Punk's charity marathon, the retro commercials sold me on a Rare game that's got to be uncommon at least, Wizards & Warriors 3 for $9 shipped looks nice. Haven't decided if I should buy Fabio's game to finish the set.
(though glad I didn't have to pay to watch Pat's videos yet after one of the non-retro commercials crashed the video. )

And one of the retro ads I saw was for Air Fortress, advertising itself as a game that was going to be in the NWC. Great. Put finishing level 6 of that game as one of the challenges, also the speed bike level of Battletoads (if that game had been created yet).

Woohoo! Got myself a copy of Dragon Warrior from the library book sale! And it only cost me a dollar. Now if I hadn't come to terms with this game, that would've been the perfect opportunity to literally chuck this game out of the top story window, but now I think I'll actually play it.

King's Quest V for the NES.

Nice get. With my absolute love for the King's Quest series, I really need to grab this one day (despite having the PC version).

An oddity I noticed is that while that game is a battery-backup game (though giving a choice using either RAM save or passwords) , it seems to have the normal gray caution label than the gold label they typically used.

I also realized I should open my Genesis controller to see if it's dirty (after trying Contra: Hard Corps on my friend's console, to realize my controller seems to want to be the one in control ) but I can't find any screwdrivers small enough. I guess that will need to be another "retro" purchase.

Well I know I said that I was leaving but I had to come back to share this incredible news. Not so much a retro purchase though more of a retro find.

Well today I was cleaning out my storage shed and found my box that I had stored all my old NES game boxes in. As I was digging around in it I remembered alot of them but to my surprise I found a Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers 2 box still wrapped in the plastic wrap although it was opened at the top to take the game out. I nearly had an accident in my pants when I saw this. I knew I have the game in fact its in my retro game room but I dont remember it coming in the box. .

Yeah so needless to say my copy of Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers 2 is now CIB. I am not sure if I want to sell it now or hang on to it. Of course if I do decide to sell it I will let you guys know cause I know with you guys it will get a new retro home.

@Tasuki: Say what, you are leaving? I missed something, then again I have been on less and less lately. What an awesome re-find! If you do decide to parts ways with that Chip n' Dale #2 let me make you an offer!
