The lights are on
Many developers have that single game which stands out from every other title in their lineage. It's not necessarily because it's remarkably good or bad, sometimes it's because it's an odd duckling. A duckling wearing a bright yellow jumpsuit and clown makeup. McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure by Treasure (Ikaruga, Gunstar Heroes, Dynamite Heady, Sin & Punishement) features Ronald McDonald prancing around a whimsical world murdering tiny gnomes and giant bipedal tomatoes with magical death dust. This colorful gem has always stuck out in my head as a good example of an underrated game. Thankfully, we've captured my fellow Game Informer editors berating my childhood taste for quality in the latest Replay.
Come along with Jeff Cork, Dan Ryckert, Phil Kollar, and I as we play this totally not terrible Sega Genesis platformer.
