Many of Sega’s arcade releases of the early ’80s have been overlooked, and there are some good titles worth checking out. One of them is Mister Viking, a 1984 run-‘n-gun that wasn’t spectacular but offered some decent fun for a while. It was manufactured and distributed in the U.S. by Bally/Midway, after Sega’s retreat from the U.S. market in 1983.
The SG-1000 had some fun games that too few people outside its native Japan have had the chance to experience. Compile’s Hustle Chumy is one title that deserves a second look, with its solid blend of old school arcade action and great presentation. It’s a game you’ll find yourself coming back to often.
