Direct Feed Footage of SEGASonic Bros Running in MAME | Video Spotlight

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

UPDATE
Neo Hazard has also shared some additional footage that shows that the music changes at level 40. At level 40 a tune many will recognise as the Blue Sphere theme starts to play, meaning that its creation predates Sonic the Hedgehog 3 by 2 years.

ORIGINAL POST
It appears that a version of the unreleased SEGASonic Bros arcade puzzler has finally been dumped and compiled for use in a modified version of MAME. The ROM hasn’t been made available at this time, but we do have the first direct feed footage of the game running below, courtesy of Neo Hazard at Sonic Retro:

This version of MAME that has been modified to run SEGASonic Bros was developed by GerbilSoft. There is currently no word on if this emulator or the ROM will be made public.

SEGASonic Cosmo Fighter Galaxy Patrol Dumped and Now Available to Play in MAME

Monday, February 6th, 2017

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!
