Fantasy Zone FM - Sega Master System [018] PlayThru

Fantasy Zone, starring Sega's early short-lived mascot, Opa-Opa.  This is a very early release that was ported from arcade to the Sega Master System.

NOTE: A trainer was used for making this capture.

I think I still prefer the PSG sound of the game over the FM, but as I have said before, this opinion could be from many years of familiarity.

As for the gameplay itself?  This is a very well-executed game for the Master System.  I have not yet played the original arcade version.  The sound and music is decent.

The art is well-drawn, with a very vivid color palette, which is nice to see on an 8-bit system.  The controls are good, until the player starts to upgrade speed; then the controls seem a little too sensitive.

The boss fights in the game are interesting.  The fight is on a black screen, since I believe the boss is the background, with the player being the sprite on the screen!

Definitely a good game to check out, and very affordable.

A HD Retrovision Component cable was used, connected to an OSSC 1.6 (processing the video in Line4x mode), with the output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.
