We've been receiving a steady stream of Sega Genesis Collection videos the past few weeks, and with each passing video, my anticipation grows. Today's video features Super Thunder Blade, which was inspired by the 1982 film Blue Thunder.
In the game, you begin the level in a third-person view behind the helicopter, and you'll eventually switch into a more-traditional, top-down view. According to the game's Wikipedia page, the Genesis version didn't feature the smooth control of its arcade predecessor, Thunder Blade, and was plagued by jerkiness and repetitive gameplay. However, the gameplay seems pretty fun from the video and should be great for a few minutes of play every now and then.
