Nintendo World Championships 1990 is a rare game used in the competition of the same name, in which players had six minutes to collect 50 coins in Super Mario Bros. and then finish Course 1 of Rad Racer, with any remaining time spent in the A-Type mode of Tetris. After time expired, the player's scores in each game were tallied, with a 10× multiplier for Rad Racer and a 25× multiplier for Tetris.

It is said to be the Holy Grail of NES collecting, as just 116 cartridges (90 gray, 26 gold) were produced.

Hmmm...
To do:
Is any of the unused content from the original games present here?

Unused Music

A jovial song likely intended for the title screen, which has no music. Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991 uses it for the name entry menu.

Unused Graphics

Several characters in the game's font go unused.

Debug Features

At the title screen, holding A and pressing Select on Controller 2 accesses a timer test.

Holding B instead will skip Super Mario Bros. (resulting in a score of 0 for it on the final tally) and start you on Rad Racer.

These features don't work in Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991, which implemented a name entry menu by pressing Select.
