Suggestions for jailbars testing

Hi, I intend to do some silly tests with some NES/FC clones to see wich has less noticeable jailbars.
For now, I think I'll test with Fester's Quest, Super Mario Bros 2 and Megaman, wich are 3 games that seems to show a lot of jailbars.
Can someone suggest me some more games or these are already fine?
Thanks in advance.

Tank (grey background), Duck Tales II (solid blue screen 2 seconds after power up), Doki Doki Yuuenchi (yellow curtain).

BTW. I don't know why but when testing solid backgrounds, some colors tends to have very sharp jailbars while other doesn't.

I find it most noticeable with blue skies.

That + some background details that you can see some 8x8 blocks clearly so you can see where the dimensions of the screen are would probably be ideal?

Interesting.
The Kings of the Beach seems to be a nice candidate with the yellow sand and solid blue background.
I think there are lots of others too like Kid Dracula a Jackie Chan's. Thanks for pointing!
What could be a nice way to "register" my findings, a TV picture or a video capture frame?

Re: jailbar visibility testing: try Pooyan or Bird Week -- both have fairly static, blue screens that really bring this out. Added bonus is that they're both NROM games, so if you needed to make test carts, they're easy.

Great!
I think I have these games in a multicart I've got as a gift.
Thanks!
