Dash Bomber writes, "Sega released Altered Beast on the arcades 28 years ago. A year later Sega developed a “perfect” port for the Genesis system and released it on August 14 1989. The port of Altered Beast was touted to be an identical recreation of the arcade version. But, this simply wasn’t true, and while Sega did manage to develop a solid port it wasn’t an exact copy. Yet, there are many things that gamers might still not be aware about Altered Beast, and they are rather interesting."
