Homebrew Shmup ‘Swabby’ Blasts Onto Sega Game Gear

Swabby1An all Sega Game Gear game has just landed on the handheld known as Swabby. This is a game by homebrew developer Hang-On that is available for download via SMS Power, which features a well-known character from the Sega Master System era. Swabby is the one and only creature based on the hidden Snail Maze game that was built into many Sega Master Systems back in Sega’s glory days.

Swabby's latest apperance throws him into a side scrolling shooter where the player guides the snail through three different levels while blasting bad guys. Each stage in the game is based on a different beloved Sega game, with plenty of familiar scenes to enjoy on the way.

Starting out in the iconic ‘Altered Beast’ graveyard before venturing into a level inspired by ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’, and lastly a stage dedicated to ‘Shinobi', it's safe to say this game very much belongs on the Sega handheld. The idea behind Swabby is to beat the game while blasting through enemies to achieve the highest score possible. It is a nice idea that pays homage to some of Sega’s greatest achievements while also showing the creativity of homebrew developers.
