Travel back to 1988 and head out to spread the word about how great your newly pur­chased

Mega Drive is. There’s loads of NES own­ers around but they don’t seem par­tic­u­larly happy right now and want new games. Each gamer will ask for some­thing sim­i­lar to what they’ve en­joyed play­ing pre­vi­ously when ac­costed and, if they hear a sug­ges­tion they like, will change al­le­giances. Get­ting some­one on your side earns some ex­tra time – fail­ing sees them leave with a SNES – and the game is over when there’s none left.

So yes, this is a silly game in­spired by Sega’s early ‘Ge­n­e­sis Does What Nintendon’t’ ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign but that doesn’t stop it of­fer­ing bursts of en­ter­tain­ment. The lit­tle NES, Mega Drive and SNES own­ers all look adorable – the player gets to be Sonic – and it’ll take some quick think­ing to in­crease Sega’s mar­ket share be­fore the clock ex­pires.
