God, I love Rocket Knight Adventures. Nice graphics, great music, fun, challenging... It's one of those games that I don't see many people mention much, but was probably one of my favorite games when I was younger.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't some members of the team that developed RKA eventually split off from Konami to form Treasure?

They probably did to create Gunstar Heroes...and if I'm not mistaking, I'm thinking some of them probably was already at Treasure for the development of this SNES shooter Axelay!! Other than that, I don't know

No, the genesis version of Sparkster is not crap. It's an excellent game with lots of great level design and gameplay ideas.

They were going for different demographics with the two versions. The SNES game was more like a traditional platformer while the other had more focus on speed and action, what with the frequent rocket usage and all.

Never played RKA or sparkster, but i managed to nab the Sparkster sprite sheet once way back. Just ran across it recently. If i remember correctly, it's pretty complete, but i'm not sure what system it was for. Looks genesis, as it's not as smooth as an SNES game, but the SNES was capable of the same pallates.

Yes, I have both of those games, and I must agree that they both kick large amounts of ass. Sparkster on SNES is my favorite of the two, but they were both great games (I think the Genesis version of sparkster is a little differrent, but I don't know). The music is really good, and the gameplay is cool and the possum has a lot of different ways attacks and ways to travel - walking, jet pack, climbing on rails with his tail, robots, etc.

The games just have so much variety, even more so with Sparkster.

Yeah, Konami can really dish out good games when they get creative.

The only thing I don't like about those games is how he can't be controlled when falling after a jetpack boost.

But didn't they fix that on the Genesis version of Sparkster? I don't know because I don't have it.
