Been after this SMS cart for a while, the game was built into the SMS 2 as a freebie, so it's quite hard to pick up now at a decent price, i really like this game, a forgotten sega mascot.
It's pretty beat up but meh, i'm chuffed to have it.
the built in alex the kid was so much better than the shitty master system 8 bit sonic game that replaced it.
Woah woah woah. SMS Sonic is actually really good and has tunes made by Yuzo Koshiro. You should go back and give it another chance. For the hardware it's on it's very very good.
The only thing that pisses me off about Alex Kidd is the Janken games. If you don't know the pattern or have the mind item you're pretty much SOL. Otherwise it's one of my favorite SMS games. Still have my OG copy I bought in 87. That manual is strange too. Must be a Euro manual.
it is a good game, but i have a personal gripe with it in that i always regretted buying a sms over the nes. and sonic was such a disappointment compared to the megadrive original. it was a time where i always got the shit end of the stick. and i did hate the fact that they were replacing alex the kid with sonic as the built in game.
Looks like the previous owner got my back on the janken games panda lol.
Sacrilege bogard, SMS sonic is right up there in my list of favourite sonic games, top 5 definately.
Gotta be honest here as well and say that i never regretted getting a sms over a nes, 50-60 quid a game and a shit release shedule over here in the UK, we were royally ignored and screwed by ninty when it came to the nes i believe.
Nobody over here never really bothered with nintendo untill the snes street fighter bundle came out, people went crazy for that.
Edit I changed the pic size so the site could load it and it's flipping the pic
in my experience, the nes always had the best games. i remember walking into game shops and they had shelves and shelves of great nes games. ninja gaiden, tmnt 2, duck tales, tiny toons, mario games, donkey kong, megaman, double dragon 2, maniac mansion, power blade, chip n dale.
and they'd have a small section of master system games like transbot, ghost house, captain silver, choplifter and golden axe.
Jeez you had fab games shops up where you live bogard, we saw very little nes stuff in the high street where i live, and what was there was around the £50 a cart mark, so you had to be richie rich to even buy the meagre selection on offer.
Check Ebay. I picked up a set of NAC locks and tangs off ebay a couple months ago. It was a full set, and it even included the CP tangs and the proper coin door tang as well. The cost wasn't so bad, and it looks a lot better than the standard cam locks.
