~20 mins documentary (in 3 parts) about the game industry in Brazil

In the second episode we can see a stash of SMS/GG cartridges including what looks like samples.

One says "Imprensa" ("press"). Another has a sticker saying "Hot Ice" (Fire & Ice?). It's difficult to identify the rest.
*EDIT* As pointed by Melanogaster below, the sticker probably just says "Hot Line".

Amazing doc series, man. Loved that, thanks for sharing.

Unfortunatelly I can't identify the other stickers either.
I think what's left of the sticker on Poseidon Wars 3D reads "Lima", which would be a surname. Maybe of someone to whom that cartridge was addressed? Don't know if it even makes sense.

I think the cart with the red sample sticker says '... Cloud Master'

I believe the cartridges with that sticker might have been addressed to "Hot Line", Tec Toy's phone service for tips they had going back then.

Another possibly interesting detail is that Choplifter cartridge with non-Tec Toy (US?) label but with the Tec Toy holographic seal... hard to say if it's anything official, though.

The small letters seem to be something written in English, yeah, but I remember US Master System cartridge labels were not like that, were them?

Anyway it's weird but I think I remember I had seen Tec Toy cartridges with this label full of small letters (and the Tec Toy sticker over them) once or twice in my childhood.

Yes, you're right. Sorry, my bad. I remembered American carts used to have a SEGA logo but I didn't think of the obvious thing: it was covered by Tec Toy sticker.
