Double Dragon - Sega Genesis [003] PlayThru


Ah, another Double Dragon, a game I did not know was released on the Genesis (I already had it on the Master System, and the ST at the time, most likely).  Oddly enough, this cartridge is similar to the original Electronic Arts cartridges released on the Genesis, but larger in size.

Atari ST Demo / Intro [015] DATADEMO by The Hacker Crew


Weird music, and a very LONG and language changing scroll text that does not actually wrap, just starts showing random characters.  That is what defines this demo.  Enjoy?

Altered Beast - Sega Genesis [002] PlayThru


Here it is, Altered Beast, the *LAUNCH* title in August of 1989 for the Sega Genesis in the US.  I believe the game came out for the Mega Drive in Japan in November of 1988.  But how is this pack in game?  Is it any good?

R-Type FM - Sega Master System [021] PlayThru


R-Type, for the Master System, was a newer Ebay aquisition.  I did not have this version back in the day. I had the Atari ST disks of this game though.  So, this play through is my first time in either the FM version or the PSG version.

Prehistoric Isle 2 - SNK Neo Geo [005] PlayThru




Well, almost everything for a retro review exists for this game (along with Ninja Masters), except for the review itself.  I honestly do not know what happened to it.  Oh well, time to do a new writeup!

Golden Axe - Sega Genesis [001] PlayThru


Here is Golden Axe, an early release on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive.  As mentioned in the arcade capture of the same game, I currently am planning on limiting Sega Genesis captures, for now, to use for comparisons.

Atari ST Demo / Intro [011] Acid Saw Demo



Ah, Sewer Soft, the kings of the doc disks!  Here they are with a simple demo that I find sort of annoying with the red flashes, but still it is a good effort!

Puzzle de Pon!R - SNK Neo Geo [004] PlayThru



Here is another Neo Geo MVS arcade release, just like Captain Tomaday, that did not receive an official home CD or Cart release.  Although, this time, fans were able to convert the data from the MVS cart to play on the CD system. This conversion can be found on the web.

Retro PlayThrus C.I.D. Compacted Disk #001 Release!


Foxie is proud to present Retro PlayThrus C.I.D. Compacted Disk #001 for the Atari ST!  This disk contains Cracktros / Intros / Demos that have been posted to the Retro PlayThrus YouTube channel.

The Story So Far ..... After 200 Menu Disks captures....


This is being written just as the first 200 captures have been made, on January 2, 2019.

This posting will just be an overview of what has been captured, and what disks are still missing at this time, out of the groups I have been working on.  For most groups, except Automation, I have made it to their 10th released disk, if the group lasted that long.  This posting is going up the same day as Automation CD #54 is being posted!
