Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991 is a rare game used in the competition of the same name, in which players had six minutes to collect 25 coins in Super Mario Bros. 3 and score 100,000 points in Pinbot, with any remaining time being spent in Dr. Mario. After time expired, the player's scores in each game were tallied, with a 10× multiplier for SMB3 and a 100× multiplier for Dr. Mario.

This was the followup to Nintendo World Championships 1990, but in this case original cartridges are even rarer due to the fact that they were quickly destroyed after the event instead of being sent to the finalists.

To do:
  • Is any of the unused content from the original games present here?
  • The available ROM was supposedly dumped from the repro cart by RetroUSB.com, and is therefore likely to be modified. Genuine cartridges need to be dumped.

Alternate Title Screen

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
  • Anymore 2P Controller oddities?

While booting up the game, hold Down on the second controller. You will lead a title screen in the style of the original competition logo instead of the one in the style of Nintendo World Championships 1990. Graphics for the alternative title screen are previously thought to be completely unused.
