I don't know how many C64 carts were like this, but my first one (Pitstop by
Epyx, bought in maybe 1984 or 85) used a "chip-on-board" IC like this.

BTW, is it the case that the chips used for this may be EPROMs (except not
eraseable due to the black resin)? If so, they will have the same limited
lifespan as EPROMs. Sigh.
