VC Friday: A blue blur


A triple whammy of 500 Wii Point games this week, starting with the Master System version of Sonic the Hedgehog, from the days when the world loved and respected Sonic the Hedgehog. With the Mega Drive/Genesis version already available on the Virtual Console for 300 Points more, we suspect the Master System edition is for either Sonic completists or cheapskates. We fit both categories.

Then there are a couple of ye olde classics from the Commodore 64: Boulder Dash and Jumpman. The name "Jumpman" is coincidental, by the way, though the game is probably similar enough to Donkey Kong to warrant suspicion.

  • Sonic the Hedgehog -- Master System -- 500 Wii Points
  • Boulder Dash -- Commodore 64 -- 500 Wii Points*
  • Jumpman -- Commodore 64 -- 500 Wii Points*
See all three doing their thing past the break!
