I'm impressed that Steel Talons exists on the Lynx at all, regardless of its frame rate. Probably the best possible Lynx port of the game, although I have to wonder why they even tried in the first place.

I see to remember the megadrvie port. It was too slow and choppy to be playable. It seems that this was also true with this version.

I actually liked both of these Lynx games. Robotron is really good; amazing they were able to cram so much intensity into that tiny cart.

I remember Steel Talons from the arcade...again, this is a good translation. Slow to be sure, but more than acceptable.

That was something cool about the Lynx - it got a lot of arcade translations that never seemed to make it to other consoles. APB, for instance. Yeah, that translation isn't great, but it does a decent job of capturing the feel of the original. Same thing with Steel Talons.

I had no idea there was a Genesis version of this. I'm intrigued.
