 Addams Family, The – By Ocean

Sometimes games based on movies are well done and other times they are not so much. Where does this particular game fall into? Sadly, in the latter group, the “not so much” group. Bram Stoker’s Dracula is a game inspired by the movie of the same title but it is game that does not appear to have much in common with the movie itself. You are in control of Jonathan Harker, a young man intent on destroying Dracula so he may save his lovely mistress, Mina Murray. To reach Dracula, Jonathan must traverse various areas where he will have to face enemies of all kinds. First there is the Journey to Castle Dracula at dusk where you start inside a rat infested village inn. This is followed by passage through mossy fields and jagged rock formations before heading into the castle itself. You must escape from the castle by surviving enemies in various rooms from a library, to vaults, to barns. Of course, then there’s facing the Count himself at the inner sanctum of the castle. Bram Stoker’s Dracula is, essentially, a ghoulish platformer for the Genesis/MD that could easily be called anything and still be the same game. When I began playing it, I honestly thought I was playing Castlevania because of the similarity in level design. There are plenty of enemies and Jonathan certainly has enough moves to fight them but there really aren’t any elements from the movie’s story here (other than the character names). Gameplay itself isn’t that stellar but it isn’t horrible either.

 Addams Family Values, The – By Ocean

Inspired by the 1993 movie, The Addams Family Values is an overhead adventure game similar to The Adventures of Zelda. The game has the player take control of Uncle Fester as he searches for Baby Pubert through forests, gardens, swamps, and dungeons. During your wanderings, you’ll bump into other members of the Addams family as well as other characters that will interact with Fester and give you information that is usually helpful. At times, these exchanges are rather funny as they are truly in character. Uncle Fester must also deal with multiple enemies during his exploration and search for Baby Pubert. Some of these include skeletons, trolls, floating eyeballs, moving plants, and hopping mushrooms. Some of these can be a bit annoying to deal with. Fester is not entirely defenceless as he can shoot lighting bolts form his hands. The problem is that these have a limited range and that range becomes even more limited when he is “injured” due to enemy attacks. The other problem is that you can’t aim very well with the lightning, so that makes it a bit frustrating when dealing with adversaries. The graphics of the game are rather nice, however. The graveyard, gardens, and dungeons look particularly good and convey the proper macabre environment rather well. The characters also look pretty good and are easy to recognize. The Addams Family Values uses a password system (though these are not given often) and it has unlimited continues to help the player complete the game. Unfortunately, I must say that I found the game rather boring and not particularly fun.

 Aladdin – By Virgin Games

Enter the Cave of Wonders... With the hit Disney’s Aladdin was in theatres, it was not surprising to see video games based on the film released to various home systems by several publishers. It was Virgin Games who brought life to Aladdin on the Genesis/MD and they did so with great mastery. The game follows the story of the movie where you play as Aladdin as he traverses the streets of Agrabah, the desert, the Sultan’s dungeon, and the Cave of Wonders on his way to get the Genie’s lamp so he may face Jafar in battle. Aladdin must use his skills with the sword, jumping, and tricks in order to avoid all the enemies along the way while also picking up apples and other helpful objects/power ups. These power ups include Genie hearts (to restore health), Aladdin golden charms (extra tries), and gems (to buy items), among others. Aladdin boasts some really gorgeous graphics and the musical score takes several tunes from the movie itself to make you feel like you are indeed in the movie. The visuals owe their quality to Virgin involving folks from Disney in the development of the game, something that makes the game really look very much like the movie. The game action itself is lots of fun and, though easy to learn, it does offer a good challenge. Besides the regular game areas, there’s the Genie Bonus Machine which you play at the end of levels once you get Genie tokens within said levels. The more Genie tokens you have, the more times you get to play in the Bonus Machine. This machine gives you random prizes unless you end up with a picture of Jafar, in which case you’ll lose any Genie tokens you have collected. Overall, Aladdin is an excellent title that should not be missed.

 Alien 3 - By Arena

In 1992, the third installment in the Aliens saga was released and, with it, came games derived from the film. The Genesis/MD, of course, got its own version of the game. The story finds the Sulaco, with Ripley, Newt, Bishop, and Hicks in cryotubes, suffering a severe malfunction which makes the ship eject the EEV containing the cryotubes. The EEV crash lands on the surface of the FIORINA 161 penal colony, with Ripley being the only survivor. After being rescued by the penal colony’s medical officer, Ripley sets out to stop “The Company” from gaining access to the alien life forms, aliens that also made it to the surface of FIORINA 161 and have now begun growing in numbers and taking captives. It is up to Ripley to rescue the captives and destroy the aliens. As the player you take on the role of Ripley and you must traverse various platforms as you search for captives while killing every alien that gets in your way. You have four weapons you can use: machine gun, flame thrower, grenade launcher, and hand grenades. All of these are in limited supply so you must be sure to collect ammunition as you travel about. Time is of the essence and you must focus on finding the captives so you can make it to the exit before the clock reaches zero. Aliens 3 has colourful graphics with well animated characters and good sound effects. The music is pretty upbeat and gives the game more of an arcade feel than anything else. I suppose it helps you keep moving quickly! The game can be challenging as the aliens do move about rather quickly but it is still a fun game, one that should be enjoyed by lovers of running shooters and Alien fans alike.

 Alien Soldier - By Sega

The planet Sierra, once peaceful, is now under attack by the terrorist group known as Scarlet. Scarlet only has one purpose, the destruction of the planet’s human population and the total takeover of the world. After an assassination attempt on Epsilon-Eagle, Scarlet’s former leader, Epsilon was badly injured and hurled into the space-time continuum where he has been hiding in the body of a boy. In the meantime, Scarlet is now under control of the feral Xi-Tiger, a leader so vicious that even Scarlet’s members fear him making them seek out Epsilon. Epsilon is, however, of two personalities now as the goodness in the boy he has used to hide himself is constantly fighting to dominate the evil. With the life of another in peril, goodness takes over and the fight begins. Alien Soldier is a side scrolling shooter that has the unique honour of holding the Guinness World Record as the game with the most boss battles for a game of its kind. Each level of play is rather short and is followed by a boss fight with the game having a total of 31 bosses in 25 levels of play. There are two skill levels of play to choose from, Easy and Hard where the difference is that you have no saves (passwords) in the hard level. Alien Soldier is a rather good shooter for the Genesis/MD. The game has large character sprites, cool music, and nice sound effects. The bosses are announced with an alarm and these come in all shapes and forms. Though not an easy game to find, it is one I recommend you add to your library.

 Alien Storm – By Sega

Alien Storm on the Mega Drive is a walk and fight game where you fight aliens to the death to save all of mankind. You begin by picking the difficulty level followed by your character from a choice of three, none of which seem to be too different. The aliens come at you in waves and you have to finish a wave before you can move to the next screen and next attack wave. The titular aliens come in many forms that will team up on you, which means that you must be quick with the trigger. Some of them hide inside dustbins and other street items and will come out only after you have passed them by. You have one more weapon, should things get too dangerous, and it's a doozy for killing everything on screen. Unfortunately, this weapon is very limited and must be used wisely. The game also has sub levels where you get to target aliens in supermarkets and warehouses using crosshairs and a super fast scrolling screen which has you moving up and down to kill the aliens as they scroll towards you. Nice little side games to keep it varied. The graphics are big and bold on the Mega Drive with some acceptable effects when you shoot an alien, though nothing spectacular. The sounds are also average for the Mega Drive, with some suitably squelchy noises from the aliens and shooting sounds for the weapons. Controls are pretty simple to master and respond well. Alien Storm reminded me of Golden Axe but with an alien theme instead of the dragons and warriors of olden days. Pretty easy to pick up and play, and has some nice bold graphics but for me it was just as easy to put it back down again.

 Altered Beast – By Sega

“Riiiiise from your graaaave…!” Altered Beast for the Mega Drive is a home port of the 1988 arcade game of the same name. It was originally conceived and developed by Makoto Uchida who went on to create Golden Axe. The story is set in a mythological past where you, as a Roman Centurion, have been summoned by Zeus to rescue his daughter, Athena, from the clutches of the devious and renowned troublemaker, Neff. To save Athena you must battle through 5 push scrolling levels that take you through a graveyard, into the Underworld and then on to the City of Dis and a final showdown with Neff himself. This can be tackled either alone or simultaneously with a friend. Throughout the levels the player can power up the Centurion by collecting Orbs which appear after giving some blue, twin headed wolves a good kicking. Power ups are incremental and culminate in the player morphing into a particular creature specific to each level; Wolf, Dragon, Bear, Tiger and Golden wolf. The change at this stage is accompanied by a neat little graphic and a higher tempo musical arrangement. Although the game looks inferior to its arcade counterpart it does do a fairly good job of replicating it for the home. The graphics have less detail and an obviously limited colour palette but it does add parallax scrolling. The digitised speech samples are hilariously bad and have become quite synonymous with the game. I suppose Altered Beast is a game that is very much of its time. It’s a precursor to the type of game that would become the scrolling beat ‘em up. It makes a great conversation topic as pretty much everyone has played it and all are aware of its quirky limitations. I think clouded memories would lead you to believe (or hope) that it is better than it actually was!

 Animaniacs - By Konami

Animaniacs was as TV show developed by a collaboration between Warner Bros. and Amblin Entertainments (Steven Spielberg) that first aired in 1993. The show had a cast of wacky characters and it was considered a variety show that did anything from education to satire. The show’s success led to the development of video games for various systems, including the Genesis/MD. This version of the game has Yakko, Wakko, and Dot (the Warner Siblings) opening up a hip pop culture shop so they can meet some of their favourite stars. The Siblings travel through the different movie sets at Warner Brothers to pick up movie memorabilia but find themselves having to deal with Pinky and the Brain who want to use the items for their world domination plans. In the game, the player controls the Siblings as they travel through four different areas in the lot. Though all the characters move together, the player can only use one at a time for any particular action. Each Sibling has its own skillset: Yakko uses a paddleball to stun enemies and he has the ability to push/pull objects, Wakko has a mallet that can be used to break stuff or turn switches, and Dot blows kisses. Each level is timed, so you’ll need to keep your eyes on the timer as well. An interesting aspect of the game is that you can go into each of the four areas in any order. Once you finish all four, then you go into a final area where you must fight Pinky and the Brain. Animaniacs is a nice mix of puzzle and platformer gaming that boasts colourful graphics and fun gameplay. Though intended for younger players, the game does offer enough challenge for everyone and it has the humour the show was known for.

 Arcade Classics – By Sega

Arcade Classics is a compilation of three Atari games for the Sega Genesis/MD. These games are Centipede, Missile Command, and Ultra Pong. The first two are pretty much direct ports of the arcade games but the Ultra Pong is an updated version of Pong that also includes a variant called Hockey. This cartridge was released in 1996 and it features a simple but nicely rendered menu screen for the player to select the game they want to play. The screen combines visuals from all three games and it takes the player to another menu where it is possible to select options for each game. In Missile Command the player can choose gameplay for one or two players, skill level, control speed, wave speed, and cruise “intelligence.” Missile Command has the original arcade version (which has been modified to only use one base) as well as an enhanced version with improved visuals. The gameplay is the same in both versions, which is a bit slower than the arcade. I’m guessing this may have to do with the controller. Centipede offers one or two player options (simultaneous and alternating) with four skill levels to choose from. As with Missile Command, both the standard arcade version and a visually enhanced version are available. No changes in gameplay were made in the enhanced version but the visuals now add a background with grass. The grass is a bit bright, making it more difficult to play the game. This is a case where less is more and the classic version is the way to go. Ultra Pong (and Hockey) also have enhanced versions but here the enhancement is in sound, not in visuals. This compilation suffers from slowdown and the control response is sluggish. The graphics are fine but the slowdown detracts from the fun.

 Arch Rivals - By Acclaim

Arch Rivals was released to the arcades in 1989 and it is a basket brawl type of basketball game where the players are encouraged to punch their opponents to steal the ball. The game is a two-on-two type of game that uses a full court. It follows the general rules of basketball and it offers the player a chance to select from eight different characters. There are four quarters, each running for four minutes. The characters available include Blade, Hammer, Lewis, Mohawk, Moose, Reggie, Tyrone, and Vinnie. Each character has its unique style of play but, no matter what character you choose, the one thing that sets this game apart from other basketball games is the fact that you can punch your opponents as much as you want without incurring any penalty. The court is also littered with items that can prove to be hazardous to the player (e.g., soda cans, candy wrappers). The Genesis/MD port of the game manages to capture the arcade’s gameplay quite well, even if there are some compromises made with graphics and animation. That’s not to say that the graphics are bad, because they are not, they just are not as animated as on the arcade. To play Arch Rivals you must be certain to use a three-button controller as it will not work properly with the six-button controller. This is not a big deal as the arcade did only use three buttons. Game sounds are really good as they are well adapted from the arcade version. One or two players can enjoy this game.

  B.O.B. - By Electronic Arts

In B.O.B. you play the role of the titular character in a side-scrolling shooting platformer game. B.O.B. has crashed his dad’s car on Planet Goth while en route to pick up his date. B.O.B. must now look for a way off Goth by finding a new car. Unfortunately, the denizens of Goth are not the friendliest bunch and they will try to rid themselves of this “guest” that roams their planet. B.O.B. must use his wit and firepower in order to reach the transport pad that will take him to the surface. B.O.B. has several weapons and “remotes” to choose from, items that must be used and replenished if he is to survive. The weapons range from single-shot guns to rockets and bolts. Each has limited ammo so B.O.B. must pick up power ups to keep his weapons loaded. Remotes are different items found about that serve various functions. Flashes freeze enemies briefly, shields protect B.O.B., a helicopter hat let’s B.O.B. fly, and an umbrella saves B.O.B. from falls. Each of the levels B.O.B. must traverse has a variety of enemies and there are bosses at the end of each stage. B.O.B. feels like a generic platformer but it has its own type of humour that really sets the game apart. There are some funny lines of dialogue and there are enemies that make you laugh because of their design. The graphics are good and well animated. The game itself can be difficult but it is definitely doable. The gameplay tends to be repetitive as well, which does help you learn what you need to advance. If you want a break, there is a password system that let’s you start where you left off.

  Batman Forever - By Acclaim

Batman Forever was the third installment in the Batman movies from the 1990's and it introduced Robin as well as two major enemies for our caped crusader, The Riddler and Two-Face. The movie was a box-office success and with that success came video game merchandise based on the film. An arcade game based on the movie was released but this arcade game was not ported to the Genesis/MD or other home consoles. Instead, a totally different game was developed for home systems. Why this was, is anyone’s guess because both the arcade game and the console games were developed by Acclaim. The Genesis/MD version of Batman Forever is a combination platformer/beat ‘em up game that looks very nice but plays like absolute garbage. Visually the game really does look great as the characters are not the usual sprites but are instead digitized actors. The backgrounds are well rendered and the sound effects and music are just OK. One or two players can participate (cooperative/competitive) and there are two modes of play (training and normal). In the normal mode, the game follows the story of the movie while training mode lets you practice your fighting skills. Acclaim must have realized that their overly complex control mechanism would require some practice! The player can choose to play as Batman or Robin but it makes little difference because this game just sucks. It doesn’t work well as a platformer or as a beat ‘em up. You have to be are a real Batman fan to want to play this game. It’s unfortunate Acclaim didn’t decide to port the arcade game as that was a much better beat ‘em up.

 Battletoads – By Tradewest

The Dark Queen has kidnapped Princess Angelic, daughter of the Terran Emperor, along with Pimple, the biggest Battletoad and it is up to you to save them! The Dark Queen has taken her prisoners to Ragnarok’s World so you head there aboard the spaceship Vulture to save your friends. Once on the planet’s surface, your adventure begins as you run through cavers, a scalding inferno, and canyons on your way to the Princess and Pimple. The Dark Queen’s villains will try to stop you on your tracks, though, so you must handle them before you can keep going to effect the rescue. Along the way, you’ll mostly be fighting your enemies through punches, kicks, and slams but in some areas you’ll need your racing skills to survive. Nothing will prove more of a challenge than the Tower of Shadows, though. That’s where the Queen awaits! Battletoads is a classic side scroller that saw ports to various systems. Clearly, the game tries to take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise and, while similar, it does have its own unique flavor. The action on Battletoads is pretty strightforward as you fight all sorts of enemies to reach your friends and save them from the Queen. Of all the characters of this game, the Queen turns out the be the most normal appearing of them all! You’ll be even surprised to see the “Vaders” from Space Invaders in here trying to stop you! Battletoads is just plain fun and worthwhile title for any Genesis/MD owner.

 Battletoads & Double Dragon – By Tradewest

What do you get when you mix up two beloved beat ‘em up franchises? You get one awesome game! The Dark Queen, after her defeat at the hands of the Battletoads, left for the outer reaches of the Universe. Or has she? A mysterious energy beam from space has rendered the Earth’s defences inoperable and a gigantic spaceship, the Colossus, has appeared. The Queen is back and this time she has teamed up with the Shadow Boss! Zitz, Rash, and Pimple may be tough fighters but Professor T. Bird knows that a team up of their own is needed. Enter Billy and Jimmy Lee, the Double Dragons! The team boards the Battlecopter and heads to the Colossus where the mission to save Earth begins. Can this “Ultimate Team” succeed? Battletoads and Double Dragon is one excellent beat ‘em up for the Genesis/MD. As the player you have the choice of five different characters to choose from, any of the Battletoads or either of the Double Dragons. While you can play alone, having a second player adds to the fun. In fact, it is cool to have one player from each team at the same time. There are seven levels that must be traversed in order to save Earth from the Queen’s attack. Each level has a mix of characters from both franchises that must be deal with, including bosses for a final challenge. The characters and backgrounds are nicely detailed and the animation is well done. In fact, there are some hilarious reactions from some of the characters. The music is excellent and the sound effects are good. Level four is an interesting level that plays more like an arcade clone of asteroids. This game is a winner!

 Bill’s Tomato Game - By Tempest Software

In 1992, Psygnosis released a puzzle platformer for the Atari ST and Commodore Amiga called Bill’s Tomato Game. The game was developed and programmed by Bill Pullan, which explains the title. In the game, the player plays the role of Terry the tomato who must rescue his girlfriend, Tracey, from the evil Sammy Squirrel. Terry must climb up Sammy’s vine in order to reach Tracey and face the dangers and obstacles along the way. The vine has 10 worlds, each with 10 levels that Terry must complete. Each level is a puzzle that must be solved so that Terry can overcome the various obstacles present. There are also helpful items along the way, such as fans and trampolines, that can be used to help Terry complete a level. Though the game was adapted (and work was completed) by Tempest Software for release to the Genesis/MD back in the day, the game was never released and it wasn’t until 2009 that a prototype cartridge was auctioned on Ebay. The game would not see an actual release until 2014 both in a limited-run cartridge as a freely available ROM. Bill’s Tomato game is highly addictive and challenging. The graphics are cartoony and nicely animated and there’s a catchy tune that plays through each level. Once you solve any given puzzle, you are given a code you can save so you don’t have to start all the way from the beginning when you return. I’ve never played the Amiga version, so I can’t compare that with this version, but this certainly is a fun game that will have you coming back for more. Even if you missed the cart release, be sure to look for the free binary online. It will be well worth your time.

 Bio-Hazard Battle - By Sega

There are side-scrolling shoot ‘em ups and then there’s Bio-Hazard Battle, a rather different type of shooter for the Genesis/MD. What makes this game different is the organic nature of the ships and enemies that you face. The story of Bio-Hazard Battle takes place centuries after the G-Biowar I (the first global biowar) on the planet Avaron. The human survivors of the war have been in cryogenic tanks aboard the O.P. Odysseus and the on-board computer has determined that survival on the planet’s surface is possible again. Unfortunately, there still are many hostile creatures, the result of the viruses released during the war, inhabiting the planet and it is up to you to check the surface conditions to see where humans can once again settle. Pilot a Bioship to the surface and report back. Bio-Hazard Battle is one memorable shooter for the Genesis/MD. You have a choice of four Bioships (Orestes, Electra, Hecuba, or Plyxena), ships that are a blend of insect and aquatic life in design. These ships have different weapon combinations and speed, so it is important to keep this in mind when selecting. Your enemies are all sorts of slithering creatures and you just have to shoot, shoot, and shoot to eliminate as many of them as you can. In addition to your standard weapons, you can pick up seed weapons for additional firepower. You’ll find that selecting the right weapon for any particular stage is a trial and error thing. There are eight stages to play through, with increasing difficulty and bosses in all but the first stage. Visually the game is interesting to look at because of all the weird enemy designs and the music is just as strange but quite catchy at the same time. Overall, this is an excellent shooter for the system.

 Blades of Vengeance – By Electronic Arts

You have to wonder sometimes where does inspiration for games come from. In Blades of Vengeance to can pay as either a Wizard, Huntress (read, Valkyrie), or Barbarian (read, Warrior). Sound familiar? Only the Elf is missing. Despite having characters similar from those of Gauntlet, Blades is a totally different game. The Kingdom has been conquered by Mannax the Dark Lady and The Master has summoned three distinct adventurers to defeat Mannax and her cronies. Navigating through eight levels of full of wonders, treasures, monsters, and magic, you guide one of these characters on their mission. At the start of every mission, The Master will give you some clues as to what to expect but that’s the help you’ll get from him. Complete a level to be confronted by one of the Dark Lady’s master creatures. Defeat it to move on until you reach Mannax herself. Defeat her and restore order to the Kingdom! Blades of Glory is a superb game for the Genesis/Mega Drive. The graphics are beautiful with large character sprites that are nicely animated and well detailed. The backgrounds are gorgeous and there are plenty of evil characters to fight against, including werewolves, gargoyles, skeletons, vampires, and fire creatures. Controls work well and things are fairly straightforward and easy to learn. The game has a “shop” where you can buy power ups for your character using the silver you collect through the levels. These power ups can give you health, extra lives, force fields, invisibility, and special attack powers. The game has fantastic music and even includes a two-player cooperative mode. This game is a winner and a must-have!

This is followed by passage through mossy fields and jagged rock formations before heading into the castle itself. You must escape from the castle by surviving enemies in various rooms from a library, to vaults, to barns. Of course, then there’s facing the Count himself at the inner sanctum of the castle. Bram Stoker’s Dracula is, essentially, a ghoulish platformer for the Genesis/MD that could easily be called anything and still be the same game. When I began playing it, I honestly thought I was playing Castlevania because of the similarity in level design. There are plenty of enemies and Jonathan certainly has enough moves to fight them but there really aren’t any elements from the movie’s story here (other than the character names). Gameplay itself isn’t that stellar but it isn’t horrible either.

  Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble - By Warner Bros. Interactive

Eh... What's up, doc? That phrase can only be said by one cartoon character, the flippant Bugs Bunny! Bugs has been trapped inside a “Televisor” created by Yosemite Sam who is playing the role of a mad scientist. Inside this “Televisor” Bugs must survive eight different worlds, each one based upon established Bug Bunny cartoons. Though each level does use animated episodes as their source material, the levels do not necessarily follow those episodes to the letter and they may add elements not present in the episodes. The titles of these episodes to appear on the “Televisor” screen before each level starts so you know whether you’re in Duck! Rabbit, Duck!, Hare-Abian Nights, or Bewitched Bunny, among others. Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble uses graphics that are rendered in a style similar to that used on Donkey Kong Country for the SNES, which makes the game look pretty nice. The characters are well designed and well animated as are the backgrounds and other playing field elements. Because the levels are based on episodes, the characters you encounter in these levels, as well as the objectives, are defined by those episodes. So, as an example, Daffy Duck appears in Duck! Rabbit, Duck! Despite its nice looks, Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble isn’t as fun of a game. It does resemble the episodes pretty well, giving you the sense that you’re in an episode, but it falls short as a platformer. Perhaps that’s because it was intended for a younger audience. On a happier note, the music is just as nice as the visuals, so that combination alone is enough to play the game for a while.
