The extremely rare 1993 Sonic-themed shooting game SEGASonic Cosmo Fighter Galaxy Patrol has finally been dumped and is now available to play within the MAME emulator. The ROM file itself has not been released so it still might be some time before the public can play it, but if the anonymous contributor does release the ROM file then it’ll be instantly available to play in the latest version of MAME.

The game is a hybrid children’s ride/shoot-em-up cabinet that tilts when you activate the “SPEED UP” ability. Take a look at some gameplay on the actual cabinet below:

ROM of SEGASonic Popcorn Shop Now Playable in MAME

Monday, October 26th, 2015

SegaSonic_Popcorn_Shop

One of the more obscure sights in the arcades of the early nineties was a Sonic-themed popcorn dispenser called SEGASonic Popcorn Shop. While the machine obviously dispenses popcorn, it also featured a short mini-game to entertain the young’uns before the popcorn left the machine. The machine also features dipswitches to allow the ROM to run in different languages. I have definitely seen a machine in the UK when I was very young so I can confirm it was distributed into other markets.

The ROM of the machine is now available to play in the MAME emulator and you can see footage of the attract screen and the mini-game in the video below. Check out that rather dainty Robotnik!

1991 Japan-exclusive Sonic arcade game Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car has finally been dumped and can now be emulated in MAME. This also means that high quality footage of the game is now available to watch below. Check it out:

Waku Waku Sonic Patrol Car is more like those children’s sit-in “rides” you often see in shopping centres and it never made its way out of Japan despite the existence of an English version. It is widely rumoured that the English version was used in markets where tourism was more popular. Sonic is voiced by Takeshi Kusao who would also voice Sonic in another arcade exclusive Sonic game, the infamous SegaSonic the Hedgehog.

Game Gear RetroN 5 Adapter Due for Release Later This Year

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

The unofficial hybrid retro machine known as the RetroN 5 will get a system expansion thanks to a new adapter that allows it to play Game Gear games.

Hyperkin’s product manager Paul Leung confirmed that work on the Game Gear adapter is already underway and it is due for release by the end of the year. No exact release date or pricing has been revealed at this time.

The system already allows you to play NES, Famicom, SNES, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games out the box. Master System games can also be played with the assistance of a Power Base Converter. While the machine is powered by console emulation instead of the actual guts of the systems it supports, it actually offers some of the best emulation available on these hybrid machines and offers 720p output as well as a save state feature.
