Nice! Been looking forward to this review ever since you got your hands on the game. I’ve been looking for a copy for awhile now. I think it leaked online at some point, but I don’t know anything about emulators, so that doesn’t help me. On a good note, the game sounds a lot better and more complete than I expected. Thanks for reviewing it.

That background definitely has more than 64 colors. Amazing what some programmers were able to get out of the Genesis toward the end of its commercial life. They really pulled out the stops for those paintings!

A nice way to celebrate Toki's birthday on this special date.

There is a secret level supposedly where as Ross you murder hitchhikers inside your painting or as Ross calls them “nasty little goat%#*@s”.

If you dig into Hyperspin's wheels for homebrew and Genesis you can find a version of it. The sound seems way off though so I don't know if that's due to me emulating it on my PC or the audio is just that bad. Either way, nice find. It gave me something to try out this morning that I normally wouldn't have. Thanks!

Exactly what I was thinking. Kudos to the programmers!

I love this game. However, you never went into the side scrolling fighter jet shooting sequences. Those are awesome and of course are an ode to Bob Ross' time in the Air Force. Great review.
