- 0.111u1: David Haywood added clone Booby Kids (Italian manufactured graphic hack / bootleg of Kid no Hore Hore Daisakusen (bootleg)). This is not the REAL Booby Kids (early Japanese version of Kid no Hore Hore Daisakusen), it is a bootleg that was manufactureed in Italy which became popular in Europe. The bootleggers probably called it 'Booby Kids' because this is the name under which the game was known on home systems at the time. This is actually just a graphic hack of the other bootleg (horekidb) it is supported because it is a common PCB, and we need to clarify that this is not the real thing.
