RadarPlays - Ristar

We journey to the stars with this would-be mascot


In this retro RadarPlays, we plug in Sonic Team’s other Genesis platformer, Ristar. Released late in the Genesis’ lifespan, this intergalactic adventure was skipped by many back in the day. But it’s well worth digging up in rereleases like Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection. Watch as Ristar experts/GamesRadar editors Henry Gilbert, Ryan Taljonick, and Lucas Sullivan give this 16-bit beauty a whirl…

Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past, Wednesdays (and sometimes Tuesdays and Thursdays, depending on the week) is reserved for new releases, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of.
