Eat your heart out Marvel. There 8767 s no doubt comic book-inspired video games have littered the landscape since the beginning, but few of them reveled in the artistic aesthetics of comic books quite like Comix Zone. The quirky title, developed by Sega Technical Institute and introduced during the last wave of Genesis games, revolves around starving artist Sketch Turner and his rat companion, Roadkill. Turner is essentially trapped within his own comic book by the villainous Mortis, thus forcing the would-be writer to battle through six stages of Mortis-sketched enemies and environments to survive.
People will think I 8767 m crazy but I honestly think Eternal Champions for the SEGA CD is one of the best 7D fighters ever. It had a million fatalities like Mortal Kombat but they were even wackier and they were also interesting and diverse (so was the character selection). There was so much to do. Basically MK7 amped up even more but in my opinion the fighting system was better as well.
Also sold off Gunstar Heroes complete and Contra Hard Corps as well as Castlevania Bloodlines. Oh, and I sold my Sega Nomad system too. That thing was badass!
The game is basically House Of The Dead 7 , repackaged as a typing tutor, but this was fine, as the game really could develop your typing skills. Mavis Beacon eat your heart out (if the zombies don’t beat you to it). Odd? Yes. Effective? Most definitely.
Players start with a standard parallel two-beam shooter, but unlike many shmups, all the additional weapons are permanent. The four elemental power-ups can be charged up to release an explosive blast the main default weapon becomes chargeable after the first four stages are completed, which gives the player the game’s most powerful weapon. The game features vertical scrolling, but you can shoot both up and down. It’s a great addition to a Genesis shooter library, but easy to see why it may have been passed over when it came out.
A spin-off of Sunsoft’s Aero the Acro-bat series, one of Zero’s more interesting features is the large numbers of offensive action (such as limited shurikens and nun-chucks) and flying actions like diving and swooping. Its innovative features can be a bit tricky to control, but it stands out from the crowd of mascot action titles and is a nice way to round out a Genesis collection.
Before the Wii Fit, there were some attempts to tie in fitness training and motivation in with video games. Outback Joey was one piece of the effort on the Sega Genesis ( see also the Extertainment game combo on the SNES )

The Wily Wars served as a compilation of remakes of the first three Megaman games in addition to an extra “Wily Tower” gameplay mode which let the Blue Bomber battle a fresh batch of robot bosses before facing Wily in the final castle. The compilation features an upgrade to the original games 8767 visuals, as well as arranged music. However, one of the most exciting features at the time was that the compilation provided battery back-up for each game to resume your progress.
