The lights are on
The Sega Master System never did reach a critical mass among gamers in the 8-bit days. Nintendo pretty much took the lead and ran with it. That doesn't mean that Tim and Jeff don't have a soft spot for the console. Bryan, however, remains skeptical. Alex Kidd isn't helping, either.
Watch as Tim does his best to battle Alex Kidd's floaty controls and frog-faced enemies. Either the game got harder over the years, or our Genesis adapter somehow messed around with the difficulty. That's the excuse we're going to be running with. Bryan wasn't ever exposed to the SMS, and it doesn't seem as though he's going to be converting anytime soon. Stick around for Replay Roulette, which features another classic-ish Master System game.

Gun Ken Po! Hope this one goes better than the last Alex Kidd replay.
Need video please
seriously, wheres the video
if you go in thru the replay hub you can get the video that way
Y'know, I don't even know what a Master System looks like. *does a Google search*
Loved this game but it was tough!
Jeff- "Still got it." LOL :)
Something really didn't want me to see this. From the missing video to the player's random pausing to my laptop randomly powering down...
I didnt even know back around the Nintendo 64 era that there was a Sega system before the Genesis. So every Saturday when my dad went to the flea market, I would always look for one. I finally found one and was just amazed based on just how it looked. When I saw Alex Kidd in Miracle World I wanted it and ask my dad if he could buy it. I went home and played Alex Kidd(Since I loved the one on Genesis). After a while of course, I started to see how it doesn't feel like the Genesis and so I went back to playing Mario 64. After a while I would always get bored with the current consoles and so I went back to playing the Master System and finally liked and beaten Alex Kidd. Thank You Video Game history!!!
Only 16 minutes and 3 seconds? :(
Why so short fellas? :/ Still good nonetheless. I've heard of the Master system but never played it personally.
those were the days! no passwords, no saves... epic marathons!
Frog and Toad reference!!! Those were my favorite books when I was a kid!
