Marble Madness (Tengen, Genesis)
This game has a prerelease article
Marble Madness is a port of the classic marble rolling arcade game. This version, published by Tengen, was released exclusively in Japan. Electronic Arts had already published their own version in the US and Europe the previous year. The Tengen port is considered far more accurate (and less lenient) than the EA release, though it is quite a rarity.
