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.
The Bitmap Brothers were known on the Amiga for creating unique styles of game design that meshed original concepts with solid presentation and gameplay. Several of the company’s releases made the jump to the Genesis, including the action/platformer Gods. Was anything lost in translation? Read our full review to find out!
Baseball season may be over, but there are plenty of options for Genesis gamers to choose from so they can continue their quest for the pennant. ’90s baseball icon Frank Thomas lent his name to a title that was actually a pretty good version of the sport.

Sequels are supposed to improve on their predecessors, but sometimes developers decide to experiment. This can lead to changes that weren’t needed, and what could have been a great game becomes another example of lost potential. The TNN series fell victim to this, and instead of wrangling a prize catch, it goes home with an empty bucket.
The popular kids show chugs its way onto the Genesis, and it’s definitely a title made specifically for its demographic. Adults might not find a lot to spend time with here, and honestly, their kids won’t find much to do after spending some time with it. Short and simple, Thomas just runs out of steam too quickly.
