One of my all-time fave too, but is it still using the same awful emulators?

Choppy framerate, crappy controls and no save slots!

All these Genesis games really remind us how far SEGA has fallen as a company from the great SEGA of the 90s to the lazy and stupid company of the noughties.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

The last few levels on this game is the stuff of nightmares. I'm kinda glad I never finished it when I was young because I would have certainly lost my sleep.

I had Ecco on the Sega MegaDrive. I'm willing to spend 59p on this but no more. Looks like I'll be waiting for a sale then.
