Maze Hunter 3D

The Master System’s SegaScope 3-D glasses are largely considered to be a gimmick, but there is some solid gameplay with most of the titles that use the technology. Maze Hunter 3D is a simple, arcadey maze game that makes great use of the effect for a solid and trippy experience.

Virtual VCR: Colors of Modern Rock

Virtual VCR: Colors of Modern Rock

In 1993, Sega CD owners had the chance to obtain a free copy of Virtual VCR through the mail. It was a simple offering from Sega, with little in the way of gameplay in any sense. It doesn’t take long to release why it was never sold at retail, and even less time to move on to something else entirely.

Paperboy 2 (Game Gear)

Paperboy 2 (Game Gear)

Paperboy is an arcade classic that has been on just about every console imaginable. The sequel allowed players to play as a girl and featured stages that moved in different directions. Unfortunately, it lost a lot of its charm on the way to the Game Gear, and you’re probably better off with a digital subscription than waiting on this paperboy.

Barkley Shut Up and Jam! 2

Barkley Shut Up and Jam! 2

Accolade’s answer to the NBA Jam series was to give basketball star “Sir” Charles Barley his own series. The game was successful enough to spawn a sequel, but unfortunately, it doesn’t do much to push the “street b-ball” sub-genre forward. Perhaps its most remarkable feature is how it squeezes every ounce out of its undoubtedly expensive endorsement.

Stories from the Book of Genesis Vol. 40

Captain America & the Avengers (Game Gear)

The Avengers assembled on the Game Gear, but something didn’t make it to the meeting. The game tries to mimic its more powerful console and arcade siblings, and while some of that does make it through, a lot of what made the original game so much fun gets lost in the translation. Maybe someone should call the X-Men next time.
