WildSnake for Game Gear (Unreleased) & an amazing 18th year competition lineup!

March 27 was our 18th birthday and we've got a bunch of gifts for you!

James (dyer60) contacted me a few weeks ago saying he may have stumbled on an unreleased game as part of buying an old lot. He was generous enough to allow me to borrow the board and dump its EPROM for a release here, coinciding with our anniversary week. Fast forward and by March 28th I received it from him and dumped the game: WildSnake! A new game for the Game Gear :)

Developed in 1993-1994 by Bullet-Proof Software, a company specialized in puzzle games (and namely all the Tetris spinoffs on the Super Famic*m), WildSnake eventually wasn't released on Sega systems. A Megadrive prototype surfaced at some point and we are pleased to release the Game Gear version today.

WildSnake is a "dropping-block" puzzle game featuring wiggling snakes that the player can controls. Snakes can eat each others when their color and pattern matches, and the player has to guide them as they fall into the board. The movement of snake creates a rather mesmerizing game.

The game has four modes: Easy, Normal, Hard and King-Cobra. The later "King-Cobra" mode provides challenges that you have to pass in order to beat the game. The game is unfortunately relatively easy and doesn't seem to offer a lot of challenge, which could have been a reason for it being pulled out before release. Regardless, it received the marketing treatment of being advertised by Alexey Pajitnov himself (according to the credits he didn't really work on the game). See the advertisement mentioning the Game Gear and Megadrive releases.
