Any Genesis fan worth his salt has played Decap Attack. It’s an awesome, spooky-themed platformer that’s the perfect title to enjoy during Halloween. It also has a lot in common with a few other titles, like Psycho Fox on the Master System (another underrated gem) and Kid Kool on the NES. All three were originally made by a publisher called Vic Tokai, and Decap Attack is actually the Westernized version of another game called Magical Hat no Buttobi Tabo! Daibōken. It shares the same style of gameplay as Psycho Fox and Kid Kool, and some consider the two Sega games to be spiritual sequels to Kid Kool.
