Today in History: November 17th, 1989- Forgotten Worlds Comes Home to Genesis

Triverse writes, "Believe it or not, back in the day arcades were a big thing. For years, it was generally held that if you wanted that arcade experienece at home you got a NES. That was till Sega released the Sega Genesis in North America along with a slew of arcade titles that were closer to the originals than the NES could reproduce. Forgotten Worlds was one of those arcade games that you could not get on the NES. Sega were seemingly addicted to licensing out their arcade games to Tengen for play on the NES around this time (something they eventually stopped)."

Pity they don't make games like this anymore. That if they try they generally get it wrong.

Very true. I miss these types of games, the ones that are tough but fun to play and they beckon you to try one more time even though you know you are going to fail.

this game and ghouls and ghosts were what i purchased with my genesis back in 89. A very good version as compared to the arcade.

The only one better than this (besides the arcade) is the turbografx super cd version

I was addicted to the Genesis version back in the day! Still have this game.
