The Final Word game review
Greendog, by Sega, is a side-scrolling action game for play on the Genesis. One day Greendog, an avid surfer dude, wipes out on a very large wave and finds himself on the beach. Lying in the sand is a pendant, which he picks up and puts on. Suddenly, he realizes he can't get it off! Greendog is quickly informed that it is a charmed pendant, and it can't be removed until he has found six ancient treasures. Unfortunently, as long as he is wearing the pendant, any creature that comes near him will go mad! Players must help Greendog find the hidden treasures, armed only with a flying disc. Special levels also include a pedal-copter, in line skates, and skateboards to help Greendog on his way.
Greendog does not follow the feel of most Genesis games. I really enjoyed this cart. It wasn't flashy--just fun! The graphics were cool, and the sound was up beat and rockin'! It all fit together to make a tearin' up fun cart. Good job.
A strange title for a very interesting game. As in most Genesis games the graphics are pretty good. The music worth listening to. The gameplay is not really there though. When he jumps, it feels like he's a rock. I would have prefered to have had a change in weaponry every now and then. The game just didn't hold my attention for very long.
This game wasn't too bad. I definently liked the graphics... in fact, the backgrounds were the highlight of this game. My main dislike was the character animation. I found all of Greendog's moves just a bit annoying and non-responsive in relation to what I was doing with the controller. While this was definently a fun game, I would only recommend it as a rental... Save your bucks for Sonic II.
Jammin'! Greendog's graphics are excellent, and the music's calypso beat really rocks. The play control seems difficult at first, but once mastered, can be used very skillfully. While a few of the levels are oddly mindful of Sonic the Hedgehog, the majority of this title is very original. This title is definently one to look for. Surf's up, dudes!
