Back to the Future Part III (GEN)
|Back to the Future Part III|
Back to the Future Part III is a game based on its popular movie counterpart. The game made it to almost every computer, but only ported to the Sega Master System and Genesis.
The game is broken up into four levels. It is a short game, but is also one of the most difficult games. The first level has you playing as Doc Brown riding on a horse trying to save Clara from going into the ravine. This level is virtually impassible because the game throws everything at you way too fast to react to. In the second stage you are at a shooting gallery and must get a high enough score to beat the stage. In the third stage you are throwing pies at outlaws. In the fourth and final stage, you must stop the train.
The game's soundtrack contains Barry Leitch's musical scores from the computer versions, but was brought over to the Genesis by programmer John Phillips. It sounds like John converted Barry's MOD files but he could have programmed the music himself. The game uses John's own custom sound driver, written in 68000.
The computer versions also had sub-songs for each level but they don't seem to be used in this version.
The title screen is a (terrible) remix of the Back to the Future theme composed by Alan Silvestri. The first stage is a mashup of the Back to the Future theme and Stan Jones's Ghost Riders in the Sky.
