GLOBAL GLADIATORS (SEGA MASTER SYSTEM) MCDONAD´S (second hand very good, cartridge only) VIRGIN GAME
Global Gladiators is a 1992 platform game published and developed by Virgin Games, originally programmed by David Perry (who at the time had already moved to the United States and was in the newly developed development studio Virgin Games USA) for Mega Drive / Genesis and finally ported by other Virgin Games teams in Europe (with the help of Graftgold and Krisalis Software) to the Master System, Game Gear and Amiga. A Super NES and a NES port was also in development but was never completed for undisclosed reasons, although a ROM image has since appeared. The game is based on the McDonald's fast food chain and has a strong environmental message.
The game is a spiritual successor to the NES MC Kids game, another McDonald's-themed game that also featured Mick and Mack as their playable characters.
A Game Boy port of the title was also fully developed (by Climax's Damian Stones) but was never released for the same legal reasons as the Super NES version.
In single player game, the player controls Mick or Mack through four worlds; Slime World, Mystical Forest, Toxi-town and Arctic World. Each world has several sub-stages where the character must collect a certain amount of Golden Arches to advance.
They are guided in their search by Ronald McDonald, who appears at the beginning and end of the game. The characters are armed with a Super Soaker-type pistol that fires sticky projectiles.
The game engine is the same used in other Virgin Interactive games such as Cool Spot and Disney's Aladdin, since all of them (Mega Drive / Genesis versions) were managed by David Perry's programming team, who eventually became Shiny. Entertainment.
