Just last week on my local classifieds (kijiji.ca) I found a single listing for three complete Sega Genesis games in a lot for $60 CAD (~$46 USD). I was a fun surprise to see that I didn’t have any of these games.
I was most interested in the Lion King as it’s one of the games that influenced Matt Phillips of Big Evil Corporation in his creation of the newly developed Sega Genesis and Sega Mega Drive game Tanglewood.
I’m actually pretty surprised that the Lion King didn’t find it’s way into my collection a lot sooner. It’s one of several very popular Disney games for the Sega Genesis.
I tried it out and got to just level two where I’m learning there is going to be some serious trial and error here to get through the stage. Both the graphics and music are outstanding and this is a great addition to the collection.
I always thought that Pitfall had some pretty nice graphics and it will be fun to try out at some point. Although it is low on the backlog list.
Pac-Man 2 looks surprising interesting but I can’t help but feel this game should have had it’s own IP instead of using the Pac-Man brand name.
None of these three games are in perfect condition but for cardboard box versions they are pretty good and at $20 each it was an easy pick-up.
