It’s time for another Toaplan shooter on Genesis Does! This week we’re taking a look at Hellfire, which by the account of most of the people at the company was one of the most DIFFICULT shooters they had ever done, because they apparently got so locked into a vertical mindset it made the transition to a horizontal scrolling game that much harder.
It doesn’t show in the quality though! In fact even though they talked about the “hardware limitations” of the Sega Genesis slash Mega Drive, I have a feeling this port stands up well compared to its arcade counterpart, because most of the same team worked on this version too! New episodes of Genesis Does air ever Thursday at 8 PM ET, so subscribe to Mistah MegaManFan (mmf187) to never miss out.
