Retro Gaming Theatre – Rocket Knight Adventures (Mega Drive)

This week’s episode of Retro Gaming Theatre looks at Konami’s 16-bit masterpiece Rocket Knight Adventures.

On the surface, Rocket Knight Adventures seems like another “me too” furry animal platformer looking to cash in on the success of Sonic the Hedgehog, but really, it’s a wonderfully designed, rather challenging platformer with some excellent boss battles, wonderful level design, amazing soundtrack and amusing cutscenes.

This video covers the first stage in its entirety.
