Post 16 – Rewinding back to the 90’s

This weekend I had many posts planned for my blog, however my internet had other ideas. For the past two days I have been internetless, which meant I had to live in the real world! However something really bad happened on Saturday… Jimmy pulled out the Sega Mega Drive II and I was transformed back to the early 90’s.

Puggsy

Displaying 20150426_213059.jpgThe first game we picked up was Puggsy, Puggsy was one of those games that as a child I would hide behind the sofa and scream… I now play Puggsy and think ‘my god I was special as a child’.

Puggsy whose spaceship has crash landed in unknown terrority is in my opinion the best puzzle quest game. The aim of the game is to retrieve Puggsy’s ship which has been stolen by some scary cat creatures! The game has quite a lot of levels and will take some time to complete… the most scariest level for me is the scary purple witch, which took me at least ten attempts to get past her – at the age of 16 (cough cough 28 cough cough) she still scares the heck out of me! Here’s a picture of Puggsy standing on the witch’s head:

Sonic the Hedgehog II

Probably one of the best games ever released, Sonic the Hedgehog II was the first game I played on the Sega Mega Drive. Sonic the Hedgehog II is one of those games that I never tire off and with his trusty sidekick Tails, Sonic and Tails embark on an adventure to stop Dr Robotnik from being naughty!

My partner, Jimmy also like to make up his own songs whilst playing this game including singing ‘What’s the invention Doctor Robotnik, What’s the invention Doctor Robotnik’ to this song:

And my personal favourite: ‘Casino Night Zone, Casino Night Zone!’ and again and again… and again… you probably can see a pattern by now, which is that Jimmy only makes up one sentence and repeatedly sings that one sentence throughout the entire song. Here is the Casino Night Zone song:

Streets of Rage

Who can forget Streets of Rage, probably the only game where my sister and I actually played nicely together, unless it was arguing over who was going to be the girl at the start of the game.

Jimmy and I had a go at this game and I was shocked how much I could remember and that we completed it in one go!  This is one of those games, which I could play repeatedly and struggle with it every time, but I would recommend never playing this game on a black and white TV unless you want to hit the wrong girl in the girl boss scene… then you will actually fall out with your sister and cause an arguement!

What is your favourite Sega Mega Drive game?
