By the way, do the splash images for these 3D remakes have the Genesis logo on the US eShop like they do with the Mega Drive logo in Europe? If that's the case, then it might deserve extra stressing that they're NOT based on the genesis versions.

Regarding the article's translation: Overall, it's very good. Minor comments would be just me nitpicking, and I'd like to see more articles get the same treatment. Could we get some more info on the translator?
Hello everyone! I'm the guy that translated the article. I hope the translation is not too bad, 'cause I'm no way a professional translator. I've just submitted the Hang-On article in Spanish and I am right now working on the Altered Beast article.
A side note about Space Harrier: I think the author was way too harsh with the ZX Spectrum version of the game. Having played it I have to say that, despite the horrible colors, the port is great! The scroll is fast and the scaling animation is not too choppy (as a matter of fact the scaling of the objects looks smoother than on Space Harrier II on Genesis). Some emus allow the player to use the game on black & white, and without the eye-straining colors the game looks considerably better. And, the more amazing thing, they managed to get Space Harrier running pretty decently on a Z80 processor at 3.5 Mhz with only 48kb of RAM!!!!
