A Casual Look At.. Fantasy Zone (PC Engine)

Fantasy Zone was an arcade game released by SEGA halfway through the 1980s. It took familiar concepts as seen in prior arcade classics such as Defender and Stargate, but it added enough of its own to make it feel like something fresh and new all together. Here we have the PC Engine (Turbo Grafx-16 in the US) version. Let's take a look and see how it is!

Throughout my life I have been an avid gamer. My early years in particular consisted of growing up with platforms like the Atari VCS/2600, NES, and Master System. Naturally, that led into platforms like the Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, Sega CD/32X, Sega Saturn, Virtual Boy, etc. In the mid to late 1990's, I realized (as a fledgling teenager with little disposable income) that I could obtain those systems that I once thought were completely out of my reach as a child (Neo-Geo, Atari Jaguar, CD-i, 3DO, etc.), and it was from there that I went into a long-term phase of discovering, experiencing and collecting consoles--just about anything I could get my hands on. While I enjoy the occasional modern game, these days time is limited outside of my many hobbies, so I tend to hover towards quick pick-up-and-play types of games, via generations I truly grew up with: Shoot 'em ups, arcade style beat 'em ups, platformers, light gun shooters, and racing games. Not to mention pinball games, something new (to me) that has become a main focal point of interest. In addition to the podcast with Kris, I also create a variety of content on my own YouTube Channel, including video game reviews, Long Plays, and Let's Plays. Many of these you will be able to find here at IMPLANTgames!
