Sega Genesis Portable: Get Your Retro Jollies on the Run
December 31st, 2007
Here’s a fun way to play some of your favorite 16-bit console oldies whenever the whim strikes. This new portable plays a selection of games from the classic SEGA Genesis (aka Mega Drive) console.
AtGames Mega Drive Portable is loaded up with a twenty licensed classic (and some not-so-classic) titles from the late 80s console. The compact system features a backlit LCD color screen, and can also output to a TV via composite video if you want to play the games on a bigger screen. While the games aren’t 100% identical to the originals (word is that the audio is a little inaccurate), gameplay and graphics are said to be pretty accurate overall.
The built-in titles include favorites like Sonic and Knuckles, Ristar, Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, Golden Axe, Ecco the Dolphin and Altered Beast. As with most retro gaming collections, there are a few duds in there too, but it’s still sounds well worth the $39 price tag.
