The best game ever created.
Ristar is the best game ever made.
A video game for the Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) released in early 1995. Was ignored by the main stream and is now a "cult classic". IMO, Ristar is an AWESOME game that deserves more attention than it got back in the middle 90s! Well... get ready for a review...more...
Story (the Japanese and English stories together):
You are Ristar, son to Mother Ouruto (who owns a whole nebula, lucky fella!) and the "legendary hero" who has saved the universe multiple times. One day, a space pirate decides to take over the Valdi Solar System. He corrupts the 6 planet presidents, enslaves the planet inhabitants, and even captures Ristar's dad! So Ouruto sends out her son to alone free the 6 planets and defeat Greedy. Game Over in this game means the end of the universe... Can you do it?
Graphics 'n' Music:
The graphics are some of the best the Mega Drive (Genesis) can offer (but it's nothing compared to the 128-bit consoles). Detailed backgrounds, well animated sprites... pure eyecandy!
The music is awesome-rific too! *hums to the theme of Freon, the ice planet* The music composer did his job well...
Now for the part that actually MAKES the game. Ristar walks around and jumps whenever you press A or C. But don't even TRY to jump on the enemies! Instead, whenever you press B, Ristar will stretch out his arms and pull them in again. You can press the D-pad upwards or diagonally upwards while pressing B to make him grab in other directions. Grab an enemy and when you let go of...
