@Rainbow Question Mark: Like I said, this is only labeled as "Bootleg" because the publisher got blacklisted by Nintendo. This game was made by Atari, with Namco's permission. This is an official game.

This is a well-programmed bootleg

iirc the only reason it's labeled as "Bootleg" is because Tengen (Atari's stuff-for-competitor's-consoles division) challenged Nintendo's licensing programme for the NES, lost horribly, and got kicked off the platform. Which is a shame since they made some really good NES software (like a better version of Tetris, and a more faithful Ms. Pac-Man that wasn't just a ROM hack of Namco's port of their MSX conversion of Pac-Man)

actually there's a bit more difference
unlicensed is still in that greyish legal area, most of them end up at retailer stores, and this game is still licensed by namco.
bootlegs are sold illegally in the black market, pop up in many different places, and usually try to rip off something. though of course there are also those "bootleg original" games made by bootleggers, which don't really rip off anything, or at least don't rip off too much...

Really, the only difference is in level of polish. Unlicensed DOES sound better, though.

whoever names these articles really needs to learn the difference between bootleg and unlicensed
