Like its predecessor, the Mega Drive Mini II lets you switch languages on the console -which lets you play several different regional variants of games.

Playthrough with Wolfgang Krauser. The Mega Drive port of this makes a lot of changes to the gameplay, such as toning down the difficulty, changing some of the inputs for special moves and making the bosses playable -all four of them can be used in the single player mode, and they all have unique endings exclusive to this version.

An adventure/puzzle game which features a very low frame rate and not much going on. It's not very difficult as there are very few chances to actually die in it, but I'll admit I kind of liked this one since it was nice to do a playthrough of something that wasn't about fighting or shooting.

I've done multiple playthroughs of this game, showing each of the endings. If you do this, you'll then get to see a credits sequence. I've set the console's region to Japanese for a reason -this game has an secret ending screen, which is in all versions of the game, but can only be viewed if playing it on a Japanese console.

To see the ending, the legitimate way is to get through the game five times, finishing at the A, B, C, D and E routes. The Mega Drive version of OutRun is easier then the arcade version, with less traffic to deal with, so it's not too hard to do. Once you finish the last route, a credits sequence will play, and then you'll see a congratulations screen. Once you see this screen, wait for around 15 seconds, then enter this code: A, A, B, B, C, C, C, C, C, C, C. If done correctly, the screen will get rid of the driver and his girlfriend, and replace them with the lady from the A route ending.

Playthrough of the arcade and original modes. Arcade mode is like the original game: get through several stages and reach the end. Original mode is slightly different, as you have to race and beat several rivals in single stage races. Beating them lets you use them in the next race, if you want to.

This port isn't too good, it was really too much for the Mega Drive to handle. It forces split screen even in single player, and unsurprisingly the graphics are a huge downgrade when compared to the arcade version.

Playthrough with Axel. This game is notorious for being heavily altered for the American & European versions, making it much harder than the original Japanese version. I feel SEGA had good intentions making it more difficult (the Japanese version is the easiest game in the series), but they just went way overboard with the changes, making the game unfair and unfun.

I have always wanted to 1CC this version with someone other than Zan, and I finally managed it. You want to get the star moves unlocked and keep them for a while, Axel's upgraded ground upper is a good move. I'll admit I have no idea what to do to take down Jet, I don't have a viable strategy against that boss at all. As long as you have at least three lives left by the final level, you should be ok to beat the game without using a continue.
