    One of my all time favs for the Genesis. Practicly Perfect in every way. MORE, MORE, MORE.

    Rated on July 17, 2006 by armacnab

    This was by far one of my favorite games as a kid. Virgin was the greatest. Aladin for Genesis was another great title by Virgin for Genesis. I can't get enough of this game. When you play it, put...

    Never liked 7 Up but loved this game!

    Rated on April 20, 2008 by SpawnHellraiser

    7 UP, back in the day, was THE SOFT DRINK alongside Pepsi. However, I always thought the drink was watered down @_@. Needless to say, the game for Genesis was right on the money. I first played this g...

    Back in the '90s when I had and played with my Sega Genesis alot, there was a game that always appealed to me, even after quite some time owning the Genesis. That game was Cool Spot. During this time...

    Advertising proves itself the master of evil again...by helping to create a game you can't put down.

    Rated on July 01, 2008 by wiredscotty

    As most of you probably know, advertising peoples are the 4th greatest evil in the world (right under terrorists, teenagers, and hobos). And nowhere is that more evident than in the brilliant and immo...

    Isn't he cute!

    Rated on March 21, 2006 by flinnha

    This has got to be one of the best platformers I have ever played. You're the little Spot guy, remember him from the 7Up commercials before they started the whole "make 7, up yours" bullcrap? So you...

    platformer based on the Seven-up Spots adventures

    Rated on May 16, 2006 by CoyAv2

    There's not much to see here. you control the spot, and can jump and shoot in (i think, i might be wrong) 6 directions. you scroll merrily along a 2-d plane and jump to free other spots trapped in c...

    An innovative and fun platformer that isn't just another Mario. Cool Spot uses the Y-Axis almost better than Mario World

    Rated on May 22, 2009 by Gh0stHacker51

    Cool Spot is a game that I love because of its art. When I played it as a kid, I loved the animations and the challenging levels. My completionist gaming outlook got its roots trying to grab all 100...
