Anyone know if there’s a suitable modern day charger for this clamshell? (M6411)

Added rudimentary support for genres on the Homebrew Games Database, so if you wanted to check out some homebrew rhythm games or something - you now can!

Thanks to everyone who suggested games for my homebrew database.

I'm going to hold off on adding games for a bit, and work on a few more filters

Firstly, Genre - Not going to go too indepth, probably:

* Platformer
* Shoot em Up
* Sports
* Maze
* Adventure
* Puzzle
* Rhythm
* Strategy
* Racing
* Action (nice and generic)

Secondly - details as to whether you can buy the game as a physical copy.

Cheers all

Who’s making games for old platforms? Please feel free to let me know what you’ve made and I’ll add them to my HomeBrew database (currently a work in progress!)
