Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (Game Gear)

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (Game Gear)

Mickey Mouse debuted on the Game Gear in spectacular fashion, as Sega’s Castle of Illusion gave the machine a stellar platformer at launch. It also marked the start of a great handheld franchise that sparked two sequels. The original is still a great game to play and one that should be in every Game Gear owner’s library.

5-in-1 FunPak

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.

Double Dragon (Game Gear)

Double Dragon (Game Gear)

A legendary series like Double Dragon deserved better. Virgin Games somehow managed to take a fan favorite and make it almost unplayable.

Taz-Mania (Game Gear)

Taz-Mania on the Genesis was a great game with incredible visuals and solid gameplay. Sadly, the Game Gear version bears little resemblance in quality, and sluggish gameplay ruins what could have been a great port. Fans of the character should stick to the Genesis games instead and avoid this one unless they absolutely need to play every Taz game there is.
