I know you guys are always up for some juicy new Sega Genesis review.

Zany Golf gives me an idea - maybe we need a BAD music icon??

Great reviews. You kind of alluded to it, but Zany Golf doesn't work in Model 2 or 3 Genesis units; adding more insult in injury.

I have very, very fond memories of Zany Golf on the Apple II when I was a kid.

Perhaps the icon should be a bloody ear, or an ear with a blunt object sticking in it.

I wished Zany Golf had been content to be a crazy golf sim. I actually enjoy the first couple of holes.
Then it just gets silly (or zany) and the game falls apart.

Did you purposely do 2 Amiga to Genesis port reviews? I see Zany Golf got a Amiga port mention but Battle Squadron didn't.

I'm a nut for Genesis Shmups but I was underwhelmed with Battle Squadron. If you like Battle Squadron IMO just play Raiden. It's a very similar game but just a lot more fun.

I do love miniature golf games, so I might be able to get a little bit of enjoyment out of zany golf, so I may have to check it out.
