Reviewed by Jeremy Peeples Dynamite Headdy was released in 1994 for the Sega Game Gear. It was developed by Treasure (of Gunstar Heroes and Guardian Heroes fame.) This particular version of the game is a port of the Genesis game of the same name. This game has many unique details that have yet to be duplicated on any console (such as the brilliant use of the backdrops.) This game is considered by many to be the crown jewel for the Sega Genesis due to it's incredible graphics and amazing gameplay as well as its bizzare bosses. Now then, without further ado, let's get on to the review. Graphics-10/10- The graphics in this game are simply stunning, they really show what the Game Gear can do. Among the graphical high-points are the gorgeous backrounds that feature numerous layers of paralax, the unique (and sometimes bizarre) character design, and the brilliant use of scaling that is used prevelantly throughout the game. Sound-7/10- This is the game's worst quality, and it's excellent (considering the limitations of the platform), the music is relatively clear and fits each level or boss perfectly, the sound effects are great too, thay all fits their actions perfectly. The only downside is that there are no catchy songs. Controls-10/10- Absolutely perfect, every maneuver in the game is easily and flawlessly executed every time it is attempted, the controls are very responsive and are never problematic in any way. Gameplay-10/10- This game features many unique traits that I have yet to see in any other game, this game features some of the best boss designs ever (the marionette boss, and the final boss come to mind as does the cat boss in the first level.) Replay Value-10/10-This game is not easy and requres you to memorize the paterns of a boss perfectly in order to continue, it is a joy to play through and is worth another play through just to relive the graphical highlights again. Buy or Rent?-Buy- Definilely buy this game as it is quite rare and is a gaming experience that you will never forget, it is definitely worh your time and money. Overall: 10 / 10
