Sega complemented Columns on the Game Gear with 1991’s Slider, a cute little action puzzle title highly reminiscent of Adventures of Lolo or Zoom!. Tight gameplay and colorful visuals make this one a fun experience in short bursts, despite the lack of boss battles and sometimes frustrating level design.

Sonic Drift

Long before he was racing against all-stars on modern consoles, Sonic was burning rubber and drifting around tracks on the Game Gear. The first Sonic Drift game only saw a release in Japan, but it’s worth tracking down and adding to your library, despite its limited roster and track count.

Ganbare Gorby!

Sometimes, the weirdest concepts can make for a fun game, and few get weirder than Ganbare Gorby! for the Game Gear. What can one say about a puzzle game where you play as the former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev as he passes out food and items to citizens? Weirdness aside, it’s an entertaining puzzle title worth tracking down.

Ecco: The Tides of Time (Game Gear)

Sega’s star dolphin made the rounds on the Genesis and Sega CD, and those games came to the Game Gear as well. The second of them, Tides of Time, isn’t a bad game at all, but it seems to lack that special something one would expect at this stage of the series. It’s worth taking a dip in this sea and checking out Ecco’s quest, just don’t expect a major experience.
