What it’s all about. The C button on a Sega Megadrive!

Back in the days of Winchendon Road, Fulham, 1992ish, there were a bunch of students, some of whom were trying to study. The rest wasted a reasonable amount of time playing the Mega Drive.
Games included:

  • John Madden Football 92
  • 688 Attack Sub
  • Altered States
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Columns
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Phantasy Star
  • Desert Strike
  • Golden Axe
  • Mega Bomberman
  • Outrun
  • Populous

The most infamous of these was Crack Down, a run and gun game that required you to kill the baddies. The best weapon of all was the fooyah, which, when the C button was pressed killed everything on the screen. The sound effect was the characters saying “fooyah”.
Simple really.
