Sonic The Hedgehog
This game, for the GameGear, is very nice. It tries to be as much
like the original as possible, and the first act could almost have been
taken (albeit in a very abbreviated form) straight from the
original Genesis title. The ending sequence of the game is a bit dissapointing,
though. Enjoy the lush graphics while you can. It took me an hour and a half to beat
it, when I played it in December 1998.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2
If this game had had a boss for the first stage that wasn't impossible, it would've been
fun to play. However, the first boss is more difficult than the rest of the game put
together, which leads to many boring hours playing the first three levels over and over
again. It usually boils down to pure luck getting past him. This game might be fun if you
can start play at the second stage with one of the cheat codes.

is a "save" feature, so you will have to beat it all at once if you want to do that.

treasured Arkanoid/Breakout genre, only with a new twist - a real quest to pursue,
multiple-direction scrolling levels such as those found in the old game for the NES entitled
Astyanaxx, and a Time Trial mode like that in ExciteBike. This game is
quite nice, and the graphics are very good, although it was made in the early days of the
That's all for today!
