For those unaware, AVGN covered the game quite hilariously: youtu.be/VdVP2XxV3QU (warning: foul language)

We’re you living in Japan in the 90s?

Like that other comment asked: We are you living in Japan in the 90s?

Couldn’t make that today. Western devs would censor those magnificent boobs.

Pepsimaaaan. Game was a trip. I grabbed the rom recently to take that nostalgic play through but haven’t yet. I totally forgot about the live action dude it showed between levels until this article.

I had the 7-up game on Sega Genesis even before this was a thing. I’m a little surprised that those kinds of games didn’t become more popular since companies are cramming adverts into every possible medium now.

Cool Spot was actually a serviceable platformer.

I remember it being “the lion king” levels of frustrating though.

Is this the most prominent example of endless runners before they became a thing?

It is for me.
