Sonic 2 ReMaster

Sonic 2 Sega Master System Fan Remaster Hands On

Sega released the original Sonic 2 on the Sega Master System back in 1992–24 years ago. That is quite a while ago. Fans have seemingly clamored for more 2D Sonic the Hedgehog games over the years that followed. For short periods it seemed as if Sega was going to listen to fans and give them […]

Dynamite Headdy Proves Using Your Head Works – Today in Retro Gaming – August 4th, 1994

Sega had a lot of work ahead of them when they were able to take the lead in the 16-Bit race.  Nintendo was coming with the Super Nintendo and it was guaranteed to be a sales success and Sega knew it.  While Sega fumbled quite a bit early on, they were able to turn things […]

Revenge of the License: Five NES Games That Missed the Point

I love licensed NES games. I love the sound they make as I yank them out of my system and hurl them against the wall. The relentless plundering through the morass in search of something worth playing and finding the occasional surprise is always delightful, and why I keep coming back to this column over […]

Twin Maze Sega Master System Work in Progress

New games for the Sega Master System seem to be more varied than for other platforms.  Not saying that is a bad thing against other platforms receiving new games by fans, just an observation.  This could be because the Sega Master System has such a limited variety of games in the first place.  This situation […]

Swabby Homebrew Independent Sega Game Gear Shooter Released

Scrolling shooters.  You are probably tired of me bringing up that the heyday of this genre being long gone.  That is fine.  It seems to be working.  We are seeing more scrolling shooting games pop up from the independent developer world.  That makes me happy.  I mean, I still for the most part suck at […]

Bara Baru Brings Bubble Bobble Style Action to Sega Master System

They say imitation is the best form of flattery.  That has never been truer than in video games.  It is common place for a popular game to spur other companies into making “similar” games.  This is true in the independent developer world too.  Take Bara Baru on the Sega Master System for example.  It is […]

5 Mortal Kombat Ports You Won’t Care to Play

Mortal Kombat.  You either love it or wonder what all of the fuss is about.  There were a couple of eye catching differences when it hit arcades.  First, the graphics, these were not hand drawn cartoon characters like Street Fighter II.  Second, you could literally, positively, END your opponent after winning the fight.  The fact […]

5 New Sega Master System Games

The Sega Master System did not fare all that well in the United States.  Partly to being mishandled by Sega and partly due to restrictive licensee agreements Nintendo enforced.  Take your pick.  While the Master System did flourish in other countries, in North America it just couldn’t gain much of a foothold.  In the United […]

Mega Man 2 Unofficially Ported to the Sega Master System, Work in Progress

You read that title right.  Mega Man 2 is being ported to the Sega Master System by fans.  Anyone that was around during the 16-Bit days will remember that Mega Man never saw a release, at least officially, on a Sega console till we got to the Saturn (which means, it was a long time).  […]

Dr. Hello Brings Pharmaceutical Mario to Sega Master System

When Nintendo released Dr. Mario they received a fair bit of criticism by fans and parents.  Most gamers just enjoyed the game for what it was- a cool puzzle title that had a unique spin on it.  Nintendo didn’t buckle under the pressure (they saved that for the whole blood situation in Mortal Kombat II) […]
