Don't you just love how games you adored as a kid are so different as an adult? In the first paragraph, there's nothing after "ever-loving", unless you intended to do that for dramatic effect.

So do you actually own the master system, or are you playing these on ROM? Good review that emphasizes the difficulty in an entertaining way. I also enjoyed the imagery you conjured up in describing the house.

The ever-loving was intentional. I was actually going to add a McMuffin after it, but changed my mind.

I currently don't own a Master System, though, just a small collection of games. I've always wanted to rebuy one, for the fact that it was a memorable part of my younger childhood days, but just never got around to it. I'm more a fan of playing games on their original intended system/platform, for the authentic feel, but if I know a game well enough, I'll do the latter, purchase a download version, or play it off a compilation for a refresher.

Thanks for reading.

I suppose that this is one game I'll skip on my quest to discover the SMS.

Nice play / juxtaposition on the "in no time" phrase by the way.

Ah, the SMS is certainly more of a nostalgia trip than anything else, at least for me. I was more than surprised at how bad some games actually were when I tried replaying them a decade after they originally came out. But the system definitely has its gems, and maybe you'll have a more enlightening experience than me. You've certainly livened up the SMS section with your reviews, at least.

Why thank you :)

I'm actually semi-surprised with the SMS so far...I mean I'm trying to pick and choose the higher rated games, but from what I can tell the SMS is an unappropriated unappreciated system.

How is the music in this game?

I find a lot of SMS music quite charming. For example, I prefer the music in the SMS version of Fantasy Zone to that of the arcade version.

It's not bad, and there's only two themes. They have a spooky catchiness to them, but due to the difficulty, the dramatic one that plays for the Dracula fights gets annoying.

Though, if I were to compare it to Fantasy Zone's soundtrack, it definitely pales.
