New Sega Genesis/MD Homebrew - G-Zero
« on: March 10, 2015, 03:02:28 AM »
Here is something of a surprise for MegaDrive/Genesis owners, a port of the SNES F-Zero for the system:  G-Zero.  This is more of a tech demo but it is an impressive accomplishment when you consider the MD doesn't have a Mode 7 functionality like that of the SNES.  Below is a video of the demo in action.  You can also download the binary to test via emulator or real hardware using your most favorite Flashcart for the console.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

F-zero being of my favourites, this is something of a brilliant achievement on the Megadrive I really hope they take this technical routine and put it to a great use and make an amazing game with it.

Truly awesome stuff :)

Seems to run fine on my Gizmondo via emulators.

It's pretty fun to play all things considered.
