    The change to black and white manuals happened later in the system's life cycle, I've also always assumed this was done to save money. Games like Hardball! and Super Off-Road were unlicensed games for play on Sega Genesis and Mega Drive. They were produced by Ballistic and probably contained some sort of chip to get around the Genesis proprietary system. Tengen did the same thing with NES back in the 80's. Later licensed Genesis games came out in cardboard boxes, this was also probably done to save money. Popular EA games that originally came out in the plastic clamshell were later re-released in cardboard boxes. With black and white manuals. If you're collecting, the original plastic clamshells are more sought after.
