I miss that so much. Turtles in Time/Hyperstone Heist. Contra 3/Hard Corps. Castlevania 4/Bloodlines. Aladdin is my favorite example, both games were awesome and wildly different. SNES being more of a platformer, Genesis being more action.Yeah, I read reviews at the time, but I was a Nintendo kid.
Crazy to think how radically different a game with the same name could be on different systems back then.
