Fun ‘N’ Games

Fun ‘N’ Games

With mini games and both music and painting editors, Fun ‘N Games had potential to be a unique title on the Genesis. It fails to hit the mark, but there’s still enough here to keep the little ones entertained for a while. It’s diverse enough to be worth a look, and parents just might find themselves having fun making some music!

One Blue Blur: 25 Years of Sonic The Hedgehog

This month marks the 25th North American anniversary of the world’s most famous hedgehog! Instead of looking at all of his games, we’ve decided to honor the Blue Blur by examining how he’s managed to endure for so long. There’s a lot more about Sonic to think about than games, and his appeal stretches to many other areas. Happy birthday Sonic!

World Class Leaderboard Golf

World Class Leaderboard Golf

Ready for some strokes on the Game Gear? Well, you’re probably better off looking somewhere else. World Class Leaderboard Golf is a bare-bones golf game that only makes a passing attempt at being a simulator. The gameplay is too simplistic, and the presentation is lacking. U.S. Gold scored a bogey with this one.

Berenstain Bears Camping Adventure (Game Gear)

Berenstain Bears Camping Adventure (Game Gear)

The classic Berenstain Bears made two appearances in the “Sega Club” line of children’s games for the Genesis and Game Gear, and both titles are fun little romps, with the Game Gear version being the more engaging of the two. Simple to play but not as easy as one would expect from a children’s game, it’s well suited for Sega’s portable.

Sega CD Reviews

Demolition Man CD

Demolition Man CD

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.

Surf Ninjas

Developed in tandem with the movie, the Game Gear Surf Ninjas game is recognized for being the first tie-in release completed before its license. That’s about all it has going for it though, as stiff and repetitive gameplay and bland design bring it down almost the level of the movie.

Reader Roundtable Vol. 122

So many games and so little time! It’s amazing how much of a console’s library can still be discovered so many years after it’s off store shelves, and Sega’s machines are still producing new experiences decades after they’ve been officially discontinued. For fans though, no machine ever dies! Read on and see what our staff and readers were playing in May!

Miracle Warriors: Seal of the Dark Lord

Miracle Warriors: Seal of the Dark Lord

The Master System is not known for a wide selection of RPGs, but some actually get passed over in favor of more recognized titles. Miracle Warriors is such title, having spent decades in the shadows of Phantasy Star and Ys. While it is far from their level of quality, there is actually a decent game under some unforgiving RPG mechanics.
