About this product
- Product InformationRocket Knight Adventures places you in control of an armor-clad opossum named Sparkster whose job involves protecting the kingdom of Zebulos with his rocket pack and trusty sword. Your objective in this seven level side-scroller (with multiple stages) is to defeat Emperor Devotnidos and his army of pig soldiers.
The evil Emperor has taken the Princess of Zebulos hostage and threatens to bring tyranny to the once peaceful land. That's not the only problem: you'll also need to confront the ex-Rocket Knight turned traitor, Axel Gear!
Levels will have you using your rocket to attack huge bosses, flying through the air in shooting stages, and even riding on a fast-moving rail cart. There are 17 bosses to battle during the course of the game, so it's a good thing you have a few moves at your disposal. Blasting off with the rocket involves holding a button down until a meter fills up with power.
Once maxed out, releasing the button will send Sparkster flying into the air in the direction of the pad. Besides flying with the rocket, Sparkster can fire a short beam with his sword, jump, hang from trees with his tail, and spin attack. Four different difficulty levels are designed to accommodate users of all abilities.

Classic game! Rocket Knight Adventures is awesome!
Rocket Knight Adventures, was released in 1993, during the mascot craze (this happened after Sonic became a household name, and game company's are trying to cash in on his success). However, compared to the other games that were released around that time, Rocket Knight Adventures was far different and better than any of the others. You play as Sparkster, an opossum knight with a jet pack and sword, who's on a mission to save the kingdom and rescue the princess from an invading army bent on world domination. No Sega Genesis collection should be without this classic side-scroller!

Simply great game, should not be missed by true gamers!
A game I got long ago and decided to throw my two cents on. Rocket Knight Adventures is simply one of the best experiences on the Genesis, a game that should never be passed up by any serious gamer. They don't make games like this anymore, games not built on story, but action and the whole experience of great stage design, nice color, awesome music (which proves the Genesis can do do kickbutt tunes), and just the right amount of speed. Couple that in with sharp controls and you have a winner in Rocket Knight Adventures. Our hero Sparkster would go on to star in two later games, one for SNES and one for Genesis, while not as universally loved as his first game, those 2 hold up quite nicely as well. Sparkster would then take a near 20 year absence from games till this gen consoles and again star in Rocket Knight. But the true beauty lies in his first 3 adventures, games that may have been forgotten by time, but has not been forgotten by gamers that are old enough to remember his glory days, and by younger gamers getting their first taste of the original three titles. Long live Sparkster, one great protagonist with his rival Axel Gear. Read full review

It's a true classic that no one should miss!
Truly a Gem of the Sega Genesis Era. If you have a genesis and haven't tried this game, BUY IT NOW! IT is a side scrolling platformer along the likes of sonic the hedgehog except this time you're an opossum with a sword and a rocket jet pack. The level design is amazing and the level of creativity put into this game is among the highest even for today's standards. Also, just because it's a side scroller, don't think you will be able to breeze by it as you probably could in a Mario game. You will definitely have a tough time in some areas, which in my opinion is a good thing. So go try this game now. It's a true classic that no one should miss.
