Unreleased Amiga Sonic Clone ‘Blaze’ Finally Released

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

blaze

In 1993 a man called Keith Bugeja was working a new platformer for the Amiga called Blaze. The game was to be published by Warp Software but development was stopped for unknown reasons. Well, I say, “unknown” but when you look at how close the action is to the original Sonic the Hedgehog, you’ll soon come to your own conclusions.

Check out Blaze in action via the embed below:

The only existing build of Blaze has now been dumped and is available to download from Bugeja’s personal blog.

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!

Putty Squad was originally due for release on Amiga in 1994 but went unpublished until 2013 when it was given a new lick of paint and released on PS4, PS Vita, PS3, 3DS, XBLA and PC. This Mega Drive version would have been made around 1995 and like the Amiga version, even made it to review in certain publications.

Unreleased Master System/Game Gear Versions of Lemmings 2 The Tribes Dumped

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

Unreleased versions of Lemmings 2: The Tribes have been released by SMS Power. The Master System and Game Gear versions of the game were completed and even sent to SEGA Power Magazine for review in 1994 but were cancelled due to the dwindling sales of SEGA’s 8 bit consoles and the high cost of cartridge production at the time.

You can get the ROM dumps for both versions of the game by registering at SMS Power. You will need an emulator to play the ROMs. Click the below links to be taken to the entries on SEGA Power:

Reverse-Engineered Star Fox Running on Mega Drive

Friday, March 8th, 2013

SNES game Star Fox has been reverse-engineered to run on a Mega Drive by developer Stef at the romhacking.net forums.

It’s certainly very bare bones at this point, running at an incredibly low framerate with sound missing but it’s still an incredible acheivement. If you’d like to try it yourself you can download the work-in-progress rom here.

See below for some gameplay footage:
