Ristar the Shooting Star

Released late in the lifespan of the Genesis, Ristar went unnoticed and unappreciated in 1995. The Game Gear version received equal treatment, though it was an excellent platformer that managed to retain all the charm and gameplay of its 16-bit sibling. It’s time to give this one the attention it deserves.

Genesis Reviews


One of the best platformers on the Genesis, Ristar is a wonderous journey composed of brilliant presentation and level design all rolled into one. If you own a Genesis and even have a passing liking for the genre, then this one needs to be in your library. It’s just that good.
