I've always been a big fan of the Wonderboy series as well as Alex Kidd. But my favorite on that system is still the arcade port of Rastan.

How come nobody remembers Ninja Gaiden? I think that the Master System version is better than NES and easier to beat.

I think it's a fun game. But the NES version just smokes it it my book. The graphics are indeed better on the Master System, but gameplay and precise control of the NES version trumps the graphics, IMO. And the music on the NES version is some of the best pre-CD-quality video game music of all time.

Ninja Gaiden on the Master System is a brilliant installment in the series and has a very different feel to the NES titles.

Master of Darkness is a superb Castlevania clone that actually surpasses it in many areas. It's got some phenomenal music and is really great fun to play.

Wonder Boy III: The Dragons Trap is one of the best 8-bit games ever made, i cant really say much else.

Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse is a wonderful little platformer that's a lot of fun, it actually borrows a few elements from Megaman and Castlevania in certain regards, but is very much its own game.

Sonic the Hedgehog is definitely worth a playthrough, 1, 2 and Sonic Chaos. They are thier own games and not just stripped down versions of the original Megadrive games.

Essentially anything by Taito, the were one of the few main supporters of the Master System while everyone else bent over backwards for Nintendo. In my opinion,the best 8-bit ports are actually on the Master sSstem

Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap - Hands down one of the best 8 bit games ever made!

Deep Duck Trouble Starring Donald Duck - I haven't had this game very long but it has became on of my favorites on the console. All the Sega Disney games are masterpieces but this one has really captivated me plus I like how the game is fast-paced like a Sonic game. (I could very easily list all the Sega Disney games on here but I will limit myself to just one but I would highly recommend anyone who has a Master System to check them all out.)

Master of Darkness - I cant say enough good things about this underrated gem on the console.

Alex Kidd in Shinobi World - This is my personal favorite Alex Kidd game. Shinobi mixed with Alex Kidd! Whats not to love!

Phantasy Star - The first game in the Phantasy Star franchise and one of the best 8-bit RPG's out there. Even today this game is a technical masterpiece showcasing what the Master System could do!

I agree with you in that it looks better, graphically. But the gameplay in the NES versions is top notch. That trilogy were easily some of the best games of that era. And the music on the NES version is without a doubt some of the best of the era.

My favorite Sega Master System games:

-Cloud Master - Unique and fun shmup.
-Double Dragon - Different from the NES version.
-Golvellius: Valley of Doom - Sega's take on The Legend of Zelda.
-Hang-On - Motorcycle-Racing.
-Sonic the Hedgehog 1 & 2 - Different from the Sega Genesis versions.
-R-Type - Classic shmup.
-Rampage - The original building-smashing favorite.
-Shinobi - The Sega classic.
-Space Harrier - Great psudo-3D on-rails shooter.
-Thunder Blade - Psuedo-3D on-rails helicopter shooter.

Always figured "Golden Axe Warrior" was the Zelda clone on the SMS 🙂

I second you, but I would add
- After Burner
- A. Kidd (both Shinobi and Miracle)
- Phantasy Star (I believe it was the very first one RPG translated to Portuguese)

Ninja Gaiden 1 on NES is stupidly hard and not good graphically. Ninja Gaiden 2 TDSoC is graphically the best. And Ninja Gaiden 3 is very playable with good looking graphics.
So I think Shinobi was the Sega's ninja wich, by the way, is awesome. Shinobi was so huge on Sega's consoles that people preferred Shinobi and maybe just forgot Hayabusa.

You aren't wrong, they both are. I own Golvellius, and not Golden Axe: Warrior; so I can personally recommend Golvellius. Golden Axe: Warrior is one of the more rare games for the SMS.
