Beyond Oasis (Genesis/Mega Drive)

ATTENTION: THIS ARTICLE HAS BEEN RECLASSIFIED AS BEING 'A BIT CRAP'.
You can find my second look at the game here instead: Beyond Oasis (Genesis/Mega Drive) - Replay.

That's a pretty lame looking title screen.

But what's this???

A good game??

Onwards, we must investigate further! While that cavern dramatically collapses behind me!

I've got to admit, this is nice pixel art for a Mega Drive game. Well, it'd be nice pixel art on anything really. Shame that he hasn't got any diagonal walking animations. Their absence kinds detracts from the otherwise slick graphics, especially as he can stand diagonally.

This appears to be a Zeldaesque adventurey type of game, and it's not long before you get into a fight.

For these situations I recommend a kick to the face.

There's also the occasional dialogue scene.

I had to stop here because, well, I like the game too much! I mean look at that awesome tree. And those cliffs are probably awesome too. But if I get caught up playing this, I won't get through any other games.


Next game then.

  1. And this is the other. This was a killer application of Genesis hardware. This game was a gem.
