Bonanza Bros., Megadrive/Genesis

Bonanza Bros. is a split-screen, two-player, side-scrolling action game that first appeared in arcades in 1990. A number of home conversions followed although none were better than this Sega Megadrive/Genesis version which was released in 1991.

The game is best played two-player and is essentially a comedy burglary simulator! Each player takes control of either Robo or Mobo (Mike and Spike in some versions) and must enter various target residences in order to clear out the goodies. Avoiding traps, cops and other enemies in the process.

Bonanza Bros. is a lot of fun to play either single or two-player, although playing with another person definitely gives it the edge.

Sega handled the conversion themselves, and – considering that the original coin-op was their own – they did NOT botch the job of squeezing it onto their home console!
