It’s quite rare to find any Sega Master System coverage in magazines online, so it’s all the more welcome to have another fine Sega Pro issue digitally archived over at Out-of-Print Archive. Although there are some fine Mega Drive games covered in this issue from December 1991 – James Pond II, F-22 Interceptor and Decap Attack to name just three – the Master System was chosen for three of the four online articles that accompany the digital release. First up is the fabulous 8-bit version of Sonic the Hedgehog, and the also impressive SMS versions of Mercs and Out Run Europa. To add some 16-bit action to the mix, the underrated Arcus Odyssey was picked from the many Mega Drive articles.
Be sure to check out page 72, which underwent some serious restoration work – see the Restoration Process feature for the full lowdown on how that badly damaged page was restored to its former glory. Sega Pro is available to download for free in both full resolution and iDevice versions. For the magazine’s editorial details and full contents, including links to all online articles and the downloads themselves, head over to the Sega Pro issue 2 catalogue page.
