That's the programmer I have (Mine is labeled as a MiniPro TL866A)

Looking in the software I don't see that chip listed. Here's the supported
chip list: http://www.autoelectric.cn/minipro/miniprosupportlist.txt

The rom in the game is 512x8, 4kb according to

I don't know if the programmer supports this ROM, but hopefully that gives
you some more more pointers to search on.
