Alex Kid in Miracle World. I didn't like the Master System and sold it fairly soon after buying it - BUT Alex Kid was a nice little game and one that I emulate now.

Hard one this but I am going to go with Choplifter, it was a great game to start with but the Master System version with its improved graphics and extra features is the best of the lot.

i have to go for ultima IV,the first rpg i ever played and it completely drew me in and kept me coming back day after day for weeks.but i would have to mention enduro racer,paper boy,double dragon and dynamite duke as other game i put a lot of time into and got a lot of enjoyment out of.

Golden Axe - my favourite game in the arcade and played it to death on the SMS when I bought it new

Bart Vs The Space Mutants - Excellent platform game!

Ghouls N Ghosts - Good arcade conversion

Didn't play many MS games, but I did think that Rambo was a great lightgun game.

Wonder Boy in Dragons Trap was, and still is, my favourite.

Haven't played vast numbers as I bought my Master System from a car boot in 2001 but I think that one with a fox in it - not Sonic 2, but the one where the fox was a lead character... Psycho Fox I think it was called.
Bought it cheap in the early 2000's from Gamestation and really enjoyed it.

Wonderboy. The original. I have no idea why it doesn't get more love than it does, quite frankly.

:D the master system was the machine of my childhood, many great games and many great memories.

for me i have a few that i would struggle to choose the best from so here is my top ones:

my hero
Alex kidd in shinobi world
shinobi
rastan
bubble bobble
psycho fox
castle of illusion
ninja gaiden

but the one i still play on a regular basis is rastan, for me its the best home version of the game bar none :D

I can't decide between two! I played platformer Psychic World loads on my mates Master System in the early nineties, but discovered the lovely Castlevania-esque wonder that is Master Of Darkness last year! I'll have both, please! :mrgreen:

BIt of a tough one as it was my first owned console (not pinched of my older brothers!)

Wonderboy in monsterland
Alex Kidd In Miricle World
Ghost House

Will go with Ghost House, very simple fun little game and first one I had as a card.

Loved my SMS. Was blown away with it when I got it, spent ages playing the Transbot card, Choplifter cart and even the built in Maze game.

But the game I really got into was the (IMO) underrated Kenseiden. It's not often mentioned in lists and I thought it was amazing at the time. Been years since I played it, am a bit worried I have rose tinted glasses for it! :lol:
