Sega’s Sonic Team released Ristar in 1995, quite late in the Sega Genesis lifespan which left many people unaware of the game’s existence. For the fortunate few that did play this game, we were rewarded with an amazing 16-bit platformer unlike anything else. If you played Ristar, you’ll remember the music from Tomoko Sasaki right away but if you’ve missed out on this game, the welcoming soundtrack will hopefully entice you to give the game a shot.
