Rocket Knight Adventures
Released in 1993 for the Genesis/Mega Drive, Rocket Knight Adventures is supposedly the story of the cheery chap Sparkster and his quest to rescue a princess. Who cares? The real story is Sparkster's fight to protect his image and reputation in the face of vastly inferior sequels. With his trusty and impressively-exploitable jetpack, lots of invincibility frames, and the power of blast possuming, Sparkster beats up his rival Axel Gear and the pig kingdom to secure his place in the pantheon of video game heroes.
