Do you have video of that? Or at least some pics?

I'll try and dig some pics out. It was years ago so only some old digital camera pics. There was other stuff to go with it too, like stone heads with lit-up red red eyes, mushrooms, black lotus balls and a cyclops mammoth.

I think he's still together in a box somewhere, but I don't know if he still oscillates!

By the way, has anyone noticed that when Uriah is facing into the screen, you can still see his eyes as if he was facing out of the screen? It's the same sprite, it's just the sprite palette is altered so his bright green eyes look like a couple of dark spots instead. They're just generally hidden by his other body segments. The SEGA board can re-colour sprites on-the-fly - you might have noticed the the tall dandelion-like fungi come past in different colours during the latter parts of level 3, which doesn't happen in most conversions.

Could it be Shenmue III....?


I like all his games. Each one is perfect for the technology it ran on at the time.

So many great games- where could one possibly start? OutRun and Space Harrier made my young days super special!

Out Run 2. If you take away the sunny graphics and lovely music from the first game, it's really not much fun. Out Run 2 has all the summer goodness but is also ridiculously good fun also.
