Swashbuckling adventure on the high seas is what awaits you in Microprose’s stellar Pirates! Gold. Probably one of the best titles on the Genesis, this is the one you show your friends when they say that PC games of the era weren’t suited for consoles. Sailing the Caribbean, looting ships and swooning fair maidens is what it’s all about, and no other game does it better.
Everyone knows that the Genesis has a… generous selection of platformers. There’s literally more than you can imagine, and such a genre glut is sure to mean that some of the good ones are going to get overlooked. Take TinHead, for instance. Solid gameplay, great presentation, and a likeable character all make for a fun game, but most people haven’t played it. Have you?
