Once again I’ve made a trade with Eric The SegaDude and this time we shipped A LOT of games across the atlantic ^___^
I found some games here in Sweden that Eric had laid eyes on, so I grabbed them for him to trade with some doubles he had that I didn’t have in my collection :) This is what I got:
Rampage is a classic game, I had it for a few other systems, but not for Sega Master System ^_^ The cover artwork is really cool and the box was in great condition, unfortunately lacking a manual, but I don’t really care about that :) This game is fun and you can play two players just wrecking buildings together :D
Dead Angle was complete and in great condition ^_^ This game makes use of the Sega Master System’s lightphaser. I have a lot of games for the Master System now that requires the lightphaser, I get the feeling that Sega was better at making use of their accessory than Nintendo, however Duck Hunt was a total hit ;D
I already had The Ninja, but mine was in really awful condition, the box was basically falling apart :/ So this was a nice upgrade :D The Ninja is just that, you play as a Ninja throwing ninja stars at enemies trying not to get killed by other ninjas ;D
Speedball is a kind of sports game, much like soccer, but futuristic. It kind of sucks ;D haha! The controls are unresponsive and I couldn’t quite figure out how to pass or how to shoot or tackle.. >-< I don’t like sports in general though, but still it’s complete and in great condition so a nice addition to the collection ^__^
I enjoy Space Harrier, and I have it for several different systems. I didn’t have it for the Sega Master System though so I couldn’t pass this one up ^_^ Even though it’s lacking the manual, it’s in excellent condition :)
I’m not really into RPG’s, but since I didn’t have it it can still join my collection, I bet I have a friend or two who would enjoy it ;D Noticeable is that the music is not nearly as good as it is on the japanese version that I recently got for Eric :) And it’s still completely different than the Famicom version :) It was also complete and even had a huge map! (not pictured..) ^__^
I had Dynamite Dux before, but that one was completely littered with a German child’s drawings and stickers.. >_< so I’m happy to have a clean version of the cover ;D Unfortunately it was without manual so I had to complete it with the other manual filled with doodles ;D lol
This is also not really my type of game, not enough action and too much reading ;D But I’m happy to have it in my collection ^^
Cloud Master was a bunch of fun! ^_^ It was also complete and in great condition :D It’s a cute shooter with a boy on a cloud :D I have the Famicom version as well, it’s called Chuuka taisen :)
Apart from all these Sega Master System games I also got a few japanese Sega Mega Drive games :D
Maou Renjishi (or Mystical Ninja) is a really cool beat ’em up in japanese style! I hadn’t tried it before and I was stuck playing through the first 4 bosses until I died ^_^ I enjoyed it a lot :D
I also didn’t have Ghostbusters for the Mega Drive before, this is a really cute platformer, but i got stuck on the first stage. I couldn’t get past a room with a ghost head that shot fireballs at me >_<
I also got this one :D Garou Densetsu is a fighting game, I don’t know much about fighting games since I don’t play them that often, but it looks decent ^_^
Eric also threw in a loose NTSC Sega Genesis cart of Sonic Spinball so that I could try whether I would be able to play NTSC games on any of my systems!
Unfortunately…. This is what it said when I started it up on my PAL Sega Mega Drive.. and when I started it in my japanese Sega Mega Drive the system just wouldn’t power on :( But at least we know for sure now!
A pleasure as always doing trades with The SegaDude! :D Thank you Eric! ^_^ And let me know if you want the Sonic Spinball cartridge back ^^
(make sure to check out his awesome Sega Collection!!)

Hmmmm. I wonder if you could get a NTSC Genesis and run it there through a C64 monitor or other monitor that took RCA cables so you’d end up with a better picture than you’d get on a regular TV? Anyway, NICE trade! I need to see what Eric got for all that cool stuff!
I know it’s not much use to you but you can keep the Sonic Spinball. If you ever pickup a Super Key (cart) that lets you play region locked games you can use Sonic Spinball to test it. Most Genesis games are not region locked I was hoping Sonic Spinball wasn’t so we could see if the PAL vs NTSC thing would have been an issue on your TV.
You sound like me with some of your new additions. Even if you don’t like a game you still want it for the collection :D Good work!
Ghostbusters has really solid game mechanics. If you ever take some time with it you’ll find you can get very good and it’s a great game. I think it will surprise people who don’t know what to expect from it.
Thanks for the trades! I’d love to do it again sometime.
