This is my copy of CODEBUSTER which was released in 1985. This was released a few months after ISEPIC, which was the 1st Snapshot type of cartridge. CodeBuster was the 2nd.
ISEPIC was a RAM based copier
Codebuster was a ROM Based snap shot
Then Super Snapshot was a ROM & RAM copier
This cartridge is SUPER RARE, the first 100 cartridges released was called Codebuster before having it’s name changed to Snapshot 64.
Here is a video I made of me first trying out and testing the CODEBUSTER
I scanned in the manual and you can download it here for free: CodeBuster Manual

the ISEPIC Cartridge
2017 marked the re-issue of the original “Freezer” cartridge first released in June 1985. It only remained on the market for 6 months before it was thought to have vanished into Commodore history.

FIRE KING INFO:
Publisher: SSG Strategic Studies Group Pty Ltd.
Developer: Micro Forté Pty. Ltd.
The city of Stormhaven Bay was once enjoying prosperity, protected by the balance of four elements: Fire, Water, Earth, and Air. Each element had a mage that supervised and controlled it, preserving harmony in the land. But the Fire Mage, the leader of the group, was slain by a horrifying monster. This broke the balance, and monsters began to roam the land and attack townspeople. A brave hero is needed to defeat the fiends and restore peace!
Fire King is a follow-up to Demon Stalkers. Like its predecessor, it is essentially a Gauntlet variant in its core. The player explores the top-down world, descending into dungeons and fighting hordes of enemies in fast-paced, action-oriented combat. Compared to its spiritual predecessors, Fire King incorporates more RPG elements.The player can choose to control one of the six available characters, and specialize in one of the three disciplines: Magic, Armor, and Strength. Spells and other helpful items can be found in the dungeons and used against the enemies.
