    Omega Blast is Another Homebrew Mega Drive Game Celebrating the Console’s 30th Anniversary

    Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

    Developed by Nendo, Omega Blast is a vertical ‘bullet hell’ shoot-em-up for the Mega Drive and a near complete version of the game is now available as part of the 30th anniversary of the Japanese launch of the Mega Drive.

    This homebrew title is a free download and can be played in a Mega Drive emulator or directly on a Mega Drive itself with use of a flash cart. It’s a very impressive-looking title that reminds us of the infamous NES bullet hell shmup Summer Carnival ’92: Recca. You can see the game in action below:

    New Indie Mega Drive Title Marks 30 Years Since the Mega Drive Launched in Japan

    Monday, October 29th, 2018

    It’s the 30th anniversary of the Mega Drive, and what better way to celebrate than by playing a brand new Mega Drive game!

    Developed by Dr. Ludos, 30 Years of Nintendon’t sees you trying to convince NES owners to buy a Mega Drive instead of a SNES by tempting them with more attractive, Mega Drive-exclusive games. It’s a silly little concept that makes for a fun distraction. You can play it in browser via the game’s Itch page, or alternatively you can download the ROM for use on an actual Mega Drive if you have a flash cart to load it onto.

    There are also future plans to release the game on an actual Mega Drive cartridge through Catskull Games. If you’ve got some time to kill and you’re nostalgic for the days when SEGA were a market leader, then why not give 30 Years of Nintendon’t a try?
