I had the SNES version!!  :)    Had it on MD too.

Sorry to say in a Sega thread but it was a bit better on SNES - or at least I preferred that version. It moved faster (which surprised me) but looked and sounded a bit better too. But a lot of this comes down to taste.

I played it to death - was able to complete it. I found some hidden sections including one that gave you an enormous weapon that gave you a chance against the last boss.   But I liked the fact it had lots of little hidden treasure rooms and secret bonuses etc.

After looking at that video it looked like it ran at similar speed to the SNES version as I remember it. Assuming that video is of the NTSC version, I wonder if the SNES version was optimised for PAL.  Or maybe I just remember things wrong. :)

Hi guys! Just want you to know we are making a new game for Mega Drive, and we managed to do what was never done before - we implemented voxels on Mega Drive!

Cool!  Will the game be available for the Genesis as well or only PAL?

There's a very impressive looking port of arcade Shinobi in progress for Megadrive. YT video available.

There are still many good & cheap Sega Genesis games you can still find today.  In this video, John Hancock picks 10 games for the Genesis that are still very affordable and common to find.
