ALF (Sega Master System)

ALF (Sega Master System)

The Sega Master System has the somewhat dubious distinction of being the only game console to feature a game based on the TV series ALF. While ALF was a decent sitcom, the game suffers from many of the problems common to licensed games. Graphics, sound and game play are all mediocre at best and there was not a sufficient budget to make a decent game.

In ALF you control the title character who must find various items in order to repair his spaceship. You can freely roam around many areas in the game and you have to figure out which items to use to defeat certain enemies, get to certain spaceship pieces, etc. As far as concept goes it wasn’t terrible but it was the execution that was lacking.

Other than being a huge fan of the show, there isn’t much reason to play this game. It is unique in that it is the only console based ALF game. There was also a computer game for various home computers and a couple of education titles but no other console game for the Sega Master System or any other console. This game has also not been re-released in any form so you will have to hunt down an original or resort to emulation if you do decide to give it a try.
