Review: Risky Woods

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

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?

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is only 6 days away for Japanese arcade gamers and SEGA have released the opening cinematic from the game on their YouTube channel.

SEGA Tunes: Marble Madness Remix Album

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

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?

Review: Mick & Mack as the Global Gladiators on Master System

Thursday, March 6th, 2014


Licensed games don’t come as bizarre as Mick & Mack as the Global Gladiators. This strange title sees you take control of a child who is tasked with ridding the world of toxic waste monsters. Oh and it’s licensed by McDonalds. Wait… what?

If you want to find out exactly how peculiarly this concept is executed you can now read our review of the Master System version of the game.

SEGA Tunes: Banjo Cover of the Monster Village Theme from Wonder Boy III

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

It’s not often someone sends you a message saying “here’s a video I made featuring a cover of the Monster Village theme from Wonder Boy III. Also it’s been done on a banjo.” Well that’s exactly what happened to me recently and the video was supplied by a certain Ollie LongZ; a talented little musician who has recently taken to arranging banjo covers of video game themes. Check out the impressive little arrangement below:

Here’s hoping Ollie has more SEGA covers up his sleeve, but if you’re interested you can check out another of Ollie’s cover’s by clicking here (it’s a Castlevania one).
