    Default Worthwhile Sega Master System games?

    Hey Folks,

    I am using a GBA sp with Flash linker and am considering using the SMS emulator to play those games. I can play ANY GBA sp game yet all I seem to play is NES Sidepocket with the NES emulator and so I was wondering if some of you guys could suggest fun and worthwhile Sega Master system titles I should try next, THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    I love the Shinobi games! Also, of course, there's the Sonics...but my faves are Alex Kidd games - and they work well on the GBA

    anagrama's link to the forum's top 20 is a great place to look.

    You can also try this:

    Click Sega Master System and check off "recommended titles".

    I shall now weep for my Game gear with Master gear :P

    If that thing plays GG roms aswell then i would definatley recommend you grab a few GG roms, they should be better suited to the small screen.

    I'm fairly new to the world of SMS, but here's a few titles that I really enjoy that were never released in the U.S. (I had to import all of them):

    Master of Darkness (very good Castlevania rip-off)
    Ninja Gaiden (a bit different than the NES games, but still great)
    SCI (a good sequel to Chase HQ)
    Streets of Rage 2 (decent miniature sized version of the Genesis classic)

    Others have made good recommendations; I'd check out King's Quest if you're interested in those old PC point and click adventure games.

    If you like shooters, I recommend Power Strike 1 and 2. R Type is also a good port, and it has a hidden level not in any other version of the game.

    Nooooo!

    ...no. Skip the crappy SMS port, and interpret the original with GBAGI.

    EDIT: Also, Choplifter continues to be a favorite, and if you're into oldschool RPGs, it's hard to beat Phantasy Star.

    R-Type can't possibly be worse then the old game boy port :P

    I like Zillion and Zillion 2, though the latter is a pretty average shooter, the first one is a good game in the metroid vein. You'll probably want to grab a map online or make one yourself if you decide to tackle it, but it'll keep you occupied for a while.

    Cloud Master was a sweet shooter too.

    Wow, someone else who likes Cloud Master! I think that it was just too difficult and too weird for the commun mortal being... where else can you shoot flying bowls of ramen and flying mahjong tiles?

    Montezuma's revenge is also great. A great port of the game with nicer graphics and tight controls.
