Video Game Ad of the Day: Kid Chameleon

Another Sega Technical Institute effort.

Kid Chameleon is a platformer released for the Sega Mega Drive in 1992. It involved you playing as a kid called Casey who takes on a new virtual reality arcade machine that has been trapping local kids. Casey can take on 9 different forms throughout the game, from the axe-wielding psycho Maniaxe to the superhero Cyclone. The game has made frequent appearances in Mega Drive compilation titles, but remains a standalone effort.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Die Hard Arcade

Or Dynamite Deka, if you prefer.

Die Hard Arcade was an arcade brawler loosely based on the events of the film. It was the last game developed by Sega Technical Institute before they were wound up. The Die Hard license was attached to the game after it was completed – the game was originally called Dynamite Cop, a title retained for the game’s sequel.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Comix Zone

Something a little different.

Comix Zone was a late-era Mega Drive brawler developed by Sega Technical Institute. While it really pushed the system’s visual and sound capacities, the game proved to be rather short. The special CD mentioned in the advertisement differs based on your region – the PAL version has the actual original soundtrack, while the North American one has a dozen heavy metal tracks with little relation to the game.
