Quote from: chinnyhill10 on 11:47, 03 September 16I assume there is a story behind it. Suspect it was outsourced. Ocean had so much work at that time sometimes versions got sent to outside developers. This happened with the Spectrum version of WEC Le Mans which is why it is different to the CPC version.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 03:38, 04 September 16 On another note, you mention the changing and adding bits in the Sega version. Sega even did that with their own games for the Master System. Enduro Racer, which was a good game as it was, was changed into an isometric view ala Return of The Jedi, and a shadow of it's arcade counterpart.Christ knows why, they left Hang On alone and that was fine as it was.
Quote from: chinnyhill10 on 12:53, 04 September 16I think it seemed to happen more once the Megadrive was out. The SMS became more of the 'kids' console in their eyes. The real gamers would buy a Megadrive instead.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 14:37, 04 September 16But Chase HQ and Enduro Racer came out before the Megadrive was launched if memory serves me well, Shinobi also had alterations done to the game that were different to the arcade too, so I'm not so sure that the Megadrive being released was a factor. I'm sure there were other Sega arcade originals that were drastically altered for the Master System too.
Quote from: chinnyhill10 on 17:55, 04 September 16I think you are right that Sonic was the turning point. But what I notice about the SMS v Megadrive when I do the reviews is that SMS games are often a bit easier and have many more continues than the Megadrive ones. That says to me they were trying to aim at a younger audience who may not have the gameplay skills. There's a couple of SMS games (Dynamite Dux for example) where I've nearly completed them on my first go.At our school I knew one kid with an SMS and nobody with a NES. Alot of the Amiga owners also got Megadrives though.
