Its either an incredibly mighty 8 bit console, or a slightly underpowered 16 bit one. Either way, its awesome, as is Alien Crush (i'm downloading Cratermaze right now as never heard of it!)

Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter II, Wolfenstein 3D, etc.

But it depends which version we're talking about. I don't want to say that classing games via "bits" is flawed, but it is pretty inaccurate, as there were 16-bit systems in the 8-bit era (TI-99/4A and Intellivision being two examples) and there were 8-bit systems in the 16-bit era (e.g. PC Engine/TG-16) and the popular "16-bit" Motorola 68000 processor was actually a 32-bit processor on a 16-bit bus, so systems like the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST and Sega Mega Drive were more "gimped 32-bit" than "proper 16-bit" systems. The Arcade board running MK was also a 32-bit chip and the same could be said for Wolfenstein 3D running on a 386 class processor. Not to nitpick, just sharing some thoughts. :wink:

This one is surprisingly good. I didn't know it until I got a free MD TV plug in thing from RG as a subs gift.

I need to go back to that one more often. Reminds me a bit of Mappy, but good, sort of what I hoped Mappy would be until it let me down with the horrible trampoline thing.

My first acquaintance with Flicky was as an unlockable for the Sonic Mega Collection on the GameCube back in 2003. At the time, I thought "Wow, this game is way too primitive to be a Mega Drive game" but I still loved it and it wasn't until about five years ago that I found out it was an arcade port from the early 80s (there is also an SG-1000 version of this game).
