Anyone know about this Sega Genesis game?

    Now, I've played this game a very, veeeerrry long time ago. I'm convinced it was on the Sega Genesis. I occasionally think about this game and ever wonder if it were real.

    Now then, the sparse details. I remember that the game played in an isometric view. I remember that there were three characters to choose from, a man, a woman, and a centaur. I remember that the first level was a jungle-like level. I remember always choosing the centaur because it was easier to play as him than as the other characters. I think the game had a barbarian theme.

    These are the only details I can recall, and some of them are probably not right. Playing as a centaur, however, is definitely a gameplay feature, I vividly remember playing as a centaur because I didn't understand this man-horse-thing and definitely because I had an easier time playing as him.

    Now if this game did end up never existing and was implanted by my subconscious I'm sorry for wasting your time but I'm convinced its a real game.

    I can only think of two: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_Crusader" target="_blank">Light Crusader</a> And <a href="http://www.mobygames.com/game/landstalker-treasure-of-king-nole/screenshots" target="_blank">Landstalker</a>

    I never played Light Crusader, so I don't know.

    Also, in fact, I don't remember any games in the Genesis with centaurs, other than Mortal Kombat. I'm quite intrigued right now.

    It doesn't seem to be any of the games mentioned, unfortunately.

    I honestly believe that this is a real game... but there is a slim chance that it might have been a dream I had when I was that young. It might be because the memory is so old it seems like a dream but I choose to believe that it's real.

    What do you mean by isometric; Sonic 3D Blast?

    Regardless, I searched on Sega-16 for "centaur" and the only other relevant game(s) I could find were the Shining titles, but In the Darkness is generic maze-like 3D with a fixed frontward view typical of "3D" games back then and Force and Force II are bird's-eye-view...

    Yeah, Shinning Force II almost fits the description. IN the begining of the game, your party is constituted of a [boy], a woman and a centaur, and the game has an epic theme. Except you cannot <I>choose</I> which character to play with, per say.

    That's not an isometric game. It's a Streets of Rage styled beat 'em up. (Or rather, Streets of Rage is a Golden Axe styled beat 'em up.)

    Yeah, except I think the sprites weren't as big as 3D Blast and thinking about it, the game may have only moved in one direction (To the North-East, I mean).

    It's OK if you guy's can't figure out what this game is. I can continue to live in this delusion as always. :v:

    Golden Axe 2 - Revenge of Death Adder has a centaur and a foresty level to start: It's not isometric though:

    except that you start out inside a tower, not a jungle-like area. In fact I don't think there are ANY jungles in that game, but only woods... lots and lots of woods

    If you really want to find out if the game is real or not, you could always download a full Genesis romset and emulator and try out all the games to see which ones you like and which ones you don't. One day, you might stumble across the one you are talking about. If you never do, it's most likely it was a dream. If you do try this process, along the way you will probably discover a ton of games you never would have known you would like.

If there was a list of isometric/3D-viewpoint Mega Drive games then it wouldn't take long to find, as I'm sure there weren't that many.

    I've never found a full genesis romset. A lot of genesis games are ESA protected and aren't included. For example, I don't even have Aladdin in my set. The game he's looking for, if it exists, could very likely be missing in the set.

    Pretty sure you mean ESA.

    Uh... that ESA protection list? I highly doubt it's real, considering how it only lists the most famous properties by its members. At the least I expect the ESA to treat all properites the same.

    And if your ROM pack is incomplete, I doubt you're looking hard enough... not going into any details here, but I'm just saying.

    Right now I'm doing a thing with Sega Retro where I write at least a stub article on a random game each day. If I come across a game that resembles the one the OP was talking about, I'll let you all know. Until then, check my signature to help, since they are stubs after all :)
