Poseidon Wars 3-D (Sega Master System review)

Developer: Sega R&D 2
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1989

Poseidon Wars 3-D is a navel-based shooting game that uses the SegaScope 3-D Glasses.

+ Has just enough enemy variety to keep you invested, and the optional 2D mode opens up the game to all players.

+ Can choose the order you tackle most missions, which is excellent for those struggling to beat a tricky stage.

+ Your cannon weapon has a nice progression system whereby it gets stronger as you complete your mission objectives.

+ Graphics are fantastic with water-based parallax scrolling and effective 3D, particularly in the mission briefing section.

- Gameplay is rather limited and doesn't enhance the formula found in the opening stages, meaning its appeal is short-lived.

- Can be incredibly tricky to spot airborne enemies during nighttime battles due to the overly dark sky.

- Reticle has an annoying tendency to automatically re-centre itself towards the horizon, leaving you out of position to fire.
