Magical Drop 2 / Sega Saturn – Carters Retro Reviews


It was snowing that early evening. It was a Saturday night and just wanted to get out of the house. I don’t mind where we go, but I wanted to be in control of the music. Dan Bradford and I were driving. I come from a city where it never snows and seeing snow on TV during Christmas is super fucking jarring when it’s 38Ā°C outside and I need a paint scraper to separate my testicles from my leg. Dan said, “I don’t mind whatever music you put on EXCEPT for that that fucking song. You know the one.”
I knew exactly what he meant. So what did that mean to me? Right now is the EXACT perfect time to play that song. I WANNA BE A HIPPIE AND I WANT TO GET STONED ON MARA MARIJUANA. He looked at me like, “You’re an arsehole.” And I laughed. Eh, he’s right. But to be fair, you put the bear in a cage and he’s going to get out.


  1. Love it!Fun fact, MD2 was the very first JP Saturn title in my collection. It just showed up in a lot. Up until that point, I had no plans to collect JP titles. Needless to say, Iā€™m glad that it showed up.

  2. Good timing on this one, as I just played a Magical Drop game for the first time a few nights ago. Played the Neo Geo Pocket Color version, and had a blast with it. This one looks great as well, and I definitely plan on picking it up in the near future.

  3. Great review. I've been playing this one a lot for the MVS as of late. It's addicting. A great game to play when you have friends over.

  4. Come for the reviews, stay for finger in the bum jokes. šŸ˜œ

    Glad to know you are satisfied with the sound balls clacking make. Haha

  5. In the intro, I wasn't sure if you were saying "Is it better, literally in every possible way?" or "Is it better? (pause, then answering your own question) Literally, in every possible way." šŸ™‚

    Great restraint on not commenting on the girl with the big jugs. That would have been way too obvious.

    I've been liking action puzzlers more and more lately (of course, when I was a kid my obsession with Tetris was notorious in my family). Have to keep an eye out for this one. I had read not-so-great things about the series in other sources, but this installment at least looks pretty good.
