Risky Woods is a notoriously difficult Amiga game that features a fantasy setting. You must navigate the stages freeing monks from stone statues to progress whilst avoiding an unbelievably large number of enemies that consistently respawn. The Mega Drive port goes some way to try and correct these flaws but does it do enough?

The 4 disc collector’s edition of DUX 1.5 is now available to pre-order via Hucast. Click here to be taken to the listing on the Hucast store.
The collector’s edition retails for a massive £75.16 before postage and includes:

If you’re a completist then you better be quick because this edition of DUX 1.5 is limited to 300 copies worldwide.
If you are new to the DUX franchise then I would recommend the standard edition of DUX 1.5 as it’s the best game in the series. You can read our review to find out why.

Super Fighter Team return with 2 new Mega Drive games which will release in 2015.
Magic Girl is a vertical scrolling shoot-em-up from Chinese developer Gamtec. The game has been fully translated into English and also includes bug-fixes which were prevalent in the original Chinese-only release.
Cascade is a puzzle game which predominantly features dice. Original slated for a Japan-only release by Epyx, the Super Fighter Team version finally brings the game worldwide and in full English.
Pre-orders for both games are open now (click the game titles above) and cost around £24 before shipping. Both games are due to ship sometime in 2015 so you’ve got a fair old wait on your hands.

First things first; yes, Marble Madness is an Atari arcade game and not a SEGA game per se, but we at SEGADriven regard any game published for a SEGA first party console fair game for feature on the website. As Marble Madness was released for Master System, Game Gear and Mega Drive it’s entirely relevant to us.
Now that’s out of the way, allow me to present ‘Where Good Marbles Go to Die’; a Marble Madness remix album courtesy of Stemage. The hard rock/heavy metal remix album tackles the entire Marble Madness soundtrack and features guest appearances from Disasterpeace, Lauren Liebowitz of Descendants of Erdrick, norg, XOC, Kirby Pufocia, housethegrate and VikingGuitar.
You can stream the entire thing using the below widget or alternatively download it at a pay-what-you-want price-point. Sadly the limited edition cassette version of the album is now sold out but at least it’s available digitally, right?
