I had a Sega Genesis for a year in college when Exosquad was on television, and I honestly have no memory of it BEING on television, so I definitely wouldn’t have been looking for a game based on it. Honestly I wasn’t looking for any games new in those days — I split the Genesis with a roommate and we only paid $50 for it at a pawn shop. We bought dirt cheap secondhand games like Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and NHL ’94.
The worst thing is the premise of the show definitely WOULD have intrigued me — time travel, interplanetary war, genetic engineering — they really tried to get their fingers into every sci-fi pie. Maybe that’s why this game flopped in the market. Trying to capture something this ambitious in a 16 bit game was a tall task that Appaloosa Interactive was ALMOST but not quite up to pulling off.
