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.
