SEGADriven is a SEGA fan-site that focusses on SEGA's console history, retro games and new software hitting the shelves soon. We want to share a love of great, quirky, clever and down-right fun games and SEGA have managed to provide this for over 2 decades. See below for the lastest news, features and updates to the site.
Today’s Mega Driving Club takes a look at Power Drive for the Mega Drive. The game was developed for the Mega Drive by Rage Software and it was released in 1994. Power Drive is more of a time-attack driving game than a racing game. Check out our video review of the game below:
Welcome to our new SEGADriven video series, the Mega Driving Club. This series takes a look at SEGA driving games as well as driving games released on SEGA consoles. In this episode we take a look at Double Clutch for the Mega Drive. Check it out below:
The first teaser for Sonic Runners has been unleashed! The new teaser trailer doesn’t show any gameplay but it does take a short tour of Sonic’s history which is becoming quite a familiar sight if you’re used to Sonic reveal trailers. Check it out below:
If you click the image above you will also see the first insight into the game’s graphical style which seems to be based off Sonic Lost World. Characters also have that chunky, black outline with games like Sonic Jump have adopted.
Sonic Runners will launch on smartphones in Spring 2015. It is still unclear whether this is a Japan exclusive title.
1990’s Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse was an early hit for the Mega Drive. The SEGA-developed platformer was an excellent little game full of beautiful scenarios, smart level design and tight controls and it was gently dipped in that lovely, Disney goo that makes the experience all the more magical. A sequel was inevitable and the next two years saw Castle of Illusion making its way to Master System and Game Gear. An original sequel for the 8 bit consoles came in the form of Land of Illusion and then things came full circle with another Mega Drive game in the form of World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck (that title is quite a mouthful).
Platinum Games have released a free, 16 bit-esque Bayonetta browser game called Angel Land.
Artwork from Angel Land previously appeared in an April Fools video Platinum Games released in 2010. You can play the game by clicking here. You can also watch the original video the game is based on below:
The final Streets of Rage game is a polarising one. While the first two games in the series are universally praised as classic beat-em-ups, the third game just doesn’t get the same amount of love. This might be because depending on whether you’re playing a Japanese or a Western version of the game you’re in for a quite a different experience.
A new entry in the Wonder Boy/Monster World series is in development!
Development is being lead by FDG Entertainment who are responsible for the Flying Hamster games. The new game will be called Monster Boy and the Wizard of Booze and will be developed with series creator Ryuichi Nishizawa, formerly of Westone Bit Entertainment.
FDG Entertainment are also working with SEGADriven favourite Banjo Guy Ollie who will be producing music for the soundtrack and also appearing in-game as an NPC. You can check out a video of Banjo Guy Ollie in action which also features some artwork from the new game below:
Monster Boy and the Wizard of Booze is in development for PS4 and PC. More platforms are due to follow.
Another retro review! Today we’re tackling the Mega Drive port of perennial AM2 arcade classic After Burner II. Can the Mega Drive handle a faithful port of a game made for the slightly more powerful SEGA X Board?
