Awesome vid MJR as always. I'm going to get Mazin Fighter and Final Zone now that I've seen footage. Great stuff!

 

Games I would recommend for Part 2:

 

Star Control

Red Zone

Panorama Cotton

Ball Jacks

Slime World

Zoom

and The Ooze (which is different from Slime World)

I once won a Sub-Terrania competition

That's actually pretty cool. It's not exactly an easy game. I just discovered it a few weeks ago for the first time. Liking it. Like an advanced lunar lander shooter.

I'd like to nominate World Trophy Soccer (released as European Club Soccer in Europe and J-League Champion Soccer in Japan). It's my favourite football game on the Mega Drive. Been playing ECS since I was 14 and still keep going back - arcade style gameplay and great little tunes that represent the different parts of the world. Closest thing to this on the SNES is Super Soccer:

Well if were nominating games I have a few that I thought held up over the years and are not wallet breakers.

 

Soldiers of Fortune

Fatal Labyrinth

Target Earth

Mega Bomberman ? ? not sure how pricey this one is now but its a cool 4 player.

Star Control-I rented that once. I remember my mom being interested in playing it, so we played head-to-head. I can't remember the race, but we both picked the one that had fighters. So here we were, giggling like crazy as we both hit the "launch" button and you heard this funky rap assault:

 

"Launch fi-la-la-laun-launch fighters-figh-launch fighters"
