The Sega Master System conversion of Dennis Caswell‘s classic Impossible Mission is pretty damn good.
Developed by US Gold – in conjunction with Epyx – Impossible Mission features all the good things about the original Commodore 64 version – except for the digitised speech. The spooky metallic footstep sound effects are familiar; as are the robots, the somersaults, the puzzles, the interface, and everything else.
Graphically, it’s a little chunkier than the original, and the colours are more bold, but it’s something of an enhancement. It’s arguable, however, that the main sprite is as good as in the original. That’s probably more down to taste.
Overall, though, Sega Master System Impossible Mission is the same brilliant game as the original, and still fun to play now. Maybe even a top ten game in the entire Master System catalogue.
