I loved this one. The best part was ripping part of the background off and throwing it at people like a paper airplane. If doing so didn't cost health, I would've done nothing else.

This was a pretty fun game, I'm glad they put it on the PSP compilation of classic Genesis games.

Even though I loved this game as a kid I have to say it WAS a whole lot harder than most other games that came out back then (and we all know how brutal some of those 8- and 16-bit games could be). I never managed to finish it. The furthest I ever got was the desert/shipyard stage.

I remember this, it was awesome.

There was no greater feeling in this game than drop-kicking a mutant through a series of panels, watching them shatter/rip in the process. This was the only game released by the Sega Technical Institute, but God-DAMN was it a doozy.

This game is awesome. I remember playing it the frist time when it came in a CD full of demos for PC and this was one of my favorite ones. I was able to play the full version sometime later, and I was definitely surprised by how difficult it proved to be. The mere fact that punching and kicking solid objects drained your health made it more realistic, albeit harder, and those iced-tea bottles were pretty rare. The question mark items were not your standard "same surprise every time", as they changed with every play, making its take a real lucky guess. Hell you could be blasted to bits gambling with those things.

I also liked the humour of the game. The way Sketch interacts with most enemies while fighting them is unique and I never get tired of listening how the Strigils say "Gimmie the respect I deserve!".

Oh and I find level 2 (Welcome to the Temple) the best one in the game. Great graphics and sound.

One of my all time favorite Genesis games. I almost managed to beat this one once, but I managed to screw up something with the rocket and the end and didn't want to go through the hassle of replaying.

An instant classic.

It's a pity this game came out as late as it did. It's another pity that there hasn't been another game like it since.

I could never beat that last boss. :(

It would be awesome if you, guys, could create a Pickleman videogame based on Comix Zone... That would be fun and hilarious!
