Sega wowed arcade gamers with SDI, a trackball-based shooter that had them defending the planet from enemy attack. The game was soon ported to the Master System, and while several compromises had to be made for it to work on the less-powerful hardware (and with a controller), the conversion turned out surprisingly well. It’s one that’s worth checking out.
Platformers were all the rage during the early ’90s, and in some places, the Master System was still getting new releases. Tec Toy’s version of Fire & Ice tried to give the machine some new blood, but it the gameplay left more people cold than hot. Still, it’s not a bad game and one worth checking out if you’re a fan of Master System imports.
When you’re a kid, getting a new game console for Christmas is one of the most awesome experiences there is. Imagine getting a Sega CD in 1994, then! Tyler Esposito of the YouTube channel iretrogamer was lucky enough to capture on video his cousin’s odyssey to become two of those kids, and if it doesn’t give you the fuzzies then you’re probably a robot.
Board games on a game console might not hold much attention when released on their own, but bundled together, they can offer a package worthy of some time. Interplay’s 5-in-1 FunPak takes a few board game staples and puts them on a single Game Gear cartridge, complete with two-player option. Is it enough to hold one’s attention? Read on and see.
Hopefully, everyone got all they wanted for Christmas, and with luck, that included lots of Sega games. There are plenty of games worth asking Santa for, so it’s most likely that he brought something you wanted! Our staff and readers share their games for the month, so let’s see what they’ve been playing!
