Stuart Middleton has been programming and working in the gaming industry for decades, as he’s had a hand in many classic Sega games, like Alien 3 and Joe & Mac for the Genesis. Sega-16 chatted with him recently about his experiences working on several of Sega’s hardware, including the Master System and Game Gear.
Go, go Sega Game Gear! The Power Rangers kick and chop their way onto Sega’s little portable in a game that’s actually pretty darn fun! It may not be the most complex title out there, but it’s entertaining, plays well, and looks and sounds great. The Rangers were pretty solid on Sega’s hardware, and this is definitely one worth checking out.
Break out the Taco Bell! Stallone and Snipes are on your Sega CD, and they’ve got lots of action and shooting to keep you busy. That is, unless you’ve already played the Genesis version. In that case, they’ve got the same game but with some grainy FMV scenes! Still, it’s worth adding to your library, since it’s a very solid action title.
Sega jumped into the martial arts action game with a title that was eerily reminiscent of Irem classics like Vigilante. Short, nice to look at, and simple to play, Kung Fu Kid doesn’t offer much in gameplay, but it somehow manages to be entertaining. If you can get past the feeling of lost potential, there’s a decent little action game here.
