This review is special for us, more precisely, for those who remember (and love) such a gaming system as the 16-bit Sega Mega Drive (aka Sega Genesis). Many gamers who were born in the late 90s and early 2000s may not understand what is so special about this console. But it was one of the best-selling game consoles of that time. The console was really good, just like the games that were released for it.
Sega had only one competitor – the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or simply Nintendo. By the way, the “war” of these two gaming systems almost completely removed all other 16-bit consoles from the market. Let’s talk about the games that were released for Sega. We have only five of them here, but in reality, there are many more good games for Sega.
This is one of the best Mortal Kombat games, with great and bloody gameplay. At one time, many people bought the Sega Mega Drive just to play Mortal Kombat. If you are a fighting game lover, a fan of the Mortal Kombat series, or you just want to play something on Sega – in this case, you absolutely must try Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. However, if you are not a fan of bloody fighters, pay attention to the Nitropolis 2 bonus buy demo game.
This is the first game in the series, which is still popular. There is no special plot in this game, but there is fun arcade gameplay, which is faster than most average arcades – after all, our hedgehog is almost supersonic. Everything here is built according to the classical scheme. We jump over the opponents and thus get rid of them, collect rings, and run to the end of the level. At the very end, there is the evil Doctor Robotnik, whom we must defeat. The game is very simple but addictive. Be sure to try it!
The famous Dune, the ancestor of most real-time strategy games, is the thing that Warcraft was a clone of. There are all the classic elements of a strategy – choosing a side in the conflict, collecting resources, rebuilding a settlement, and creating troops. But at the time of the release, all these elements were not yet classics – they were made such by Dune, and then Warcraft. The last thing we will say about this game – if you consider yourself a lover of strategies, you simply must complete it.
This is another game from Silicon & Synapse about a trio of Vikings who got lost in time and space. Interesting puzzles, three characters, each with their own abilities, original levels, and 1,001 ways for your heroes to die. Crashing when falling from a height, roasting in lava or on electricity, drowning, falling on caramel spikes – the list is very long. But the game is addictive. Don’t believe us? Check it yourself!
It was impossible not to mention this game. A fun arcade fighting game about ninja turtles who, under the guidance of their sensei – the rat Splinter, are fighting their enemy – Shredder. He wants to take over the world, but our heroes are not satisfied with this. The game has many opponents, several levels, completely different from each other, and many ways to get rid of your enemies. In general, it is useless to miss one of the first games about the famous teenage mutant ninja turtles. So, don’t hesitate to try it!
