California Games would be the only Master System title I can think of that actually does simulate multi-layered scrolling that way. A bit of a shame VDP writes are so slow. Nothing as simple as switching CHR-ROM banks on the NES.


IIRC Ys does this for the final battle with Dark Fact as well.

There are a few other places where the MSX version of Ys did it as well, but those were turned into static scenes on the SMS (like the bridge on darm tower). But the final battle still has the same parallax trick, and assuming it's done the same way it's done on the MSX, then it's done with animated tiles.
