Dynamite Headdy (Sega Genesis) Review

Treasure made quite a pairing with the Sega Genesis back in the 90s. From Gunstar Heroes, Alien Soldier, Light Crusaider.

Even some of the more obscure titles like Yū Yū Hakusho or even the McDonalds game. So with no surprise, you’re in for a treat today with Dynamite Headdy.


You only start off with three lives and picking up extras is pretty hard to do. Oh and if you lose all your lives, continues are rare and most of the time you’ll have to pick up from the title screen.

I really enjoyed reading through some of the old promos and reviews for Dynamite Headdy. It’s good to see that it was very well received back in 1994 when there really wasn’t many forms of game reviews back then. I mean, a copy of Electronic Gaming Monthly that I would Have to beg my mom to buy me as we were in line at the grocery store was really the only way I was able to find out about upcoming games.

Dynamite Headdy is a blast to play and I’m glad it’s gotten so many re-releases over the years. You can find it almost anywhere now, it’s even on the Sega Genesis Mini if you’ve been able to snag one. It’s definitely a top 20 or even top 10 game for the Mega Drive of all time in my books so yeah find a copy and give it a go!

Dynamite Headdy is available on Android, Steam and on the Sega Genesis Mini
