SEGA MARK III

Format Sega Mark III
Released 21 Dec 1986
Publisher Sega
Product ID G-1310
Size (cm) 14 x 10 x 2.5
Weight (kg) 0.12

STATUS
The Mark III Space Harrier was the very first home console conversion of the game, and given its age (and under powered hardware) isn't too bad an effort at all. The visuals can be a little jerky at times, but the core of the gameplay is here.
A Master System classic!

Standard 'Gold Cartridge' packaging, 2Mbit cartridge, monochrome booklet.

STATUS
The PC versions of Space Harrier were handled by Dempa, and released across a wide range of platforms (PC-8801, X1, FM77AV, etc).
The X68000 port was easily the best version of its day, beating the Atari ST and Amiga efforts into a bloody pulp. Then again that's not much of a feat.

Plastic casing, 1 x 5" floppy disc, monochrome manual.

Late 1988, and the PC Engine gets a stunning conversion of Space Harrier. A very early release on the format, and a classic in its day.
NOTE: This game has problems running on SuperGrafx machines (it crashes when you shoot). You must toggle the unit's function switch onto 'PCE Mode' for it to work.

Standard PCE case, 4Mbit HuCard, 4-page colour booklet.

STATUS
The Famicom eventually got its fix of Space Harrier action close to two years after the Mark III, courtesy of toy makers Takara.
Sadly this is a very weak version; nowhere near as accomplished as Sega's.

Standard FC cardboard packaging, 1Mbit cartridge, booklet.

A very weird item!

At last! It's amazing to think that it took close to 10 years for a perfect version of Space Harrier to appear.
Here it is at last on the Mega Drive's 32X add-on, and it was well worth the wait. Perfect in every way!
