The SG-1000 is Sega's first attempt at a video game console. Despite being a rather powerful machine for its day, it was a victim of horrible timing: it came out the exact same day as the Famicom, which almost immediately took over the console market. Because of this, the SG-1000 had a very limited release (only Japan and New Zealand), and its game library remained relatively small. The main problem with the SG-1000 was its controller: it was clunky and unresponsive, and replacing it was a huge headache, since it was hardwired into the console.

Since this system bombed so hard, Sega was quick to work in a successor, the Mark III aka Master System.

Games

Box art Title Genre Description
Borderline SG1000 Cover Borderline Shoot'em Up Tank shmup, you go around and blow stuff while making your way through the terrain. Some stages have cores which you must take down before proceeding.
Dragon Wang SG1000 Cover Dragon Wang Beat'em Up Nice little Game of Death style Beat'em Up, where you wander around a dark tower and kick the crap out of many badguys. It's similar to Irem's Kung-Fu, but less linear.

Had a sequel on the Master System called Kung Fu Kid.

Star Jacker SG1000 Cover Star Jacker Shoot'em Up Good arcade conversion, in this game you control four ships at the same time to take down those stinking aliens!
Black Onyx SG1000 Cover The Black Onyx RPG A port of THE FIRST JRPG EVER CREATED! Create your party and go dungeon-crawling, simple as that! A english translation patch is available, which even corrects some minor annoying things.
