    Fair and well-written review. I'd probably bump it up to 5/10 since I have a weakness for B.O.B. (which uses the same engine), but I can't fault 4/10 either. The game has its share of irritating...

    Glad it's helpful, Lagi! Definitely add whatever you can to the "intended speed" thread -- I've just updated it. I think that'd be the best place to discuss it, since this thread is mainly for...

    Worth summing up the info in post #11:

    NTSC-U (and/or J) releases optimized for 50Hz that run faster than intended at 60Hz

    Yeah, I think Fatal Labyrinth is fine. It's low on bells and whistles, but it's a pretty forgiving roguelike, and I had little trouble beating it once I sat down and set my mind to it.

    I need to...

    If the world comes to know Andre Agassi Tennis as one of the worst things ever made for the Genesis, I will feel a sense of accomplishment. Bonus points if someone gets Andre to apologize for it.

    Welcome aboard, Lagi!

    Your question is basically outside the scope of this thread, since we haven't been using 50 vs. 60Hz as part of our rules for what constitutes clearing a game. Of course it...

    It's a Christmas miracle!! Thanks, Goati. Not only does this complete a long-standing unbeaten game, and move the PAL list into the 90+% bracket, it also keeps a streak alive of at least one new PAL...

    Gain Ground is now the only one of these that hasn't been re-reviewed, so I guess it's time for me to get on my review. Will try to get that done in the first few months of 2022.

    I didn't know we had you to thank for Eye of Typhoon! Even though the frame rate is a bit of a shock, once you get past that, it really does play quite decently. I rank it exactly where you do. I...

    Of the 21 games I've completed, I'd say my favorites were Immercenary and Psychic Detective. The former is a really oddball pseudo-FPS with RPG elements; the latter is a really oddball FMV game where...

    I neglected to note that Chimaera's win over ESPN Speed World means that all the racing games for Genesis/Mega Drive are done! That means it's probably time for an updated list of the remaining...

    ^Awesome! That's one of those games that was hanging around for longer than I'd have expected, but of course it demands someone willing to bang their head against the wall of its obtuseness. Thanks...

    This is a terrific development! Thanks so much, Chimaera. Out of curiosity, did you use a 6-button controller or a 3-button? When I messed around with ESPN Speed World a couple years ago, I found it...

    I'm sort of relieved to hear that, as I wondered if I was missing something! Too bad there aren't any Jaguar games (are there?) that have that level of sprite scaling but actually back it up with...

    Oh, I don't know -- I think a game as bad as Andre Agassi Tennis is worth saying a few things about. :D

    I agree with you about the blandness and comically low challenge of Arrow Flash.

    I haven't played that many Jaguar games at length. Of those I've beaten, I'd say I enjoyed Cybermorph and Hover Strike quite a bit, in that "crunchy mid-1990s early 3D" sort of way. Cybermorph is a...

    Two victory posts in one day?! Amazing! Great work, Chimaera and Goati. Goati's journey through the playoffs was one of the more harrowing gameplay feats I've ever seen -- like watching a real...

    Aww, thanks! I know Goati's list would have been very interesting -- maybe next time.

    My list seems pretty stable. I've played through another 7-8 Genesis games in the past year, and the only one...

    I don't always have the best eye for spotting the differences in these kinds of hacks, but of course even I can see at a glance how much more faithful and vibrant the revised work is. Looking good! :)

    Awesome! Great to see some movement, and particularly nice to see a Koei game fall. Very much appreciated, and that brings us to 24 North American Genesis games left. :)
