Bonanza Bros. (Sega Mega Drive / Genesis review)

Developer: I.T.L / Sega CS
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1991

Bonanza Bros. is an action-stealth game that was first released in the Arcade in 1990.

+ Stealth-based gameplay can be fun at times, particularly when you squash an enemy while opening a door!

+ Variety of locales to stop the action feeling stale, and the sprawling Pyramid level taxes your problem-solving abilities. 

+ Given there's a time limit in each stage, the on-screen map is extremely handy for guiding you to the next item location.

- Includes only ten stages that offer little replay value, and a couple of levels from the Arcade original are absent.

- Controls aren't as responsive as the Master System version (1991) and there's always a slight delay after pressing a button.

- In single-player mode, the screen real estate is halved so you can't plan ahead as strategically and efficiently.

- Graphics are basic and blocky, while the music grows tiresome due to the sparse number of repeated tracks.
