The NES may have ruled the roost in North America during the '80s and early '90s, but Sega's Master System console was still home to some amazing titles — and in Europe, was incredibly popular.
Keen to keep the memory of the console alive, our old friend Tyler Esposito of Sega Master System.com is putting together a series of "lost" commercials for 8-bit Sega games, and his latest is the hilariously-titled Montezuma's Revenge. No prizes for guessing what the topic of the commercial is, given the visions conjured up by that that humourous name.
Montezuma's Revenge was first released in 1984 by Parker Brothers for a wide range of formats, including the Atari 2600, Apple II and ColecoVision. Creator Robert Jaeger demoed the game when he was just 16, and Parker Brothers quickly snapped up the rights to it. In 1998 a sequel entitled Montezuma's Return! was released for the PC, and was accompanied by a Game Boy Color edition.
