Poseidon Wars 3-D

Poseidon Wars 3-D

The Master System received what could be described as a reimagining or even a spiritual successor to Sega’s 1982 groundbreaking arcade hit Subroc 3D. Nowhere near as intense or impressive, it’s not a bad effort. It just seems awfully calm for a war game, and its 3D effect isn’t very impressive.

Space Channel 5

Ulala made her gaming debut on the Dreamcast, and she’s since become one of Sega’s most iconic characters. Her first adventure, though short, was a funky romp that instantly stood out among other games, and it’s one of the most fun titles on the console. Dancing in space with aliens has never been so much fun!

Big Evil Corporation makes a stellar debut on the Genesis with Tanglewood, an adorable platformer that was designed from the ground up with an original console development kit. Great presentation, rock-solid gameplay, and a lovable character make this a game Genesis owners need to snap up for their libraries.

It was manufactured and distributed in the U.S. by Bally/Midway, after Sega’s retreat from the U.S. market in 1983.
