Sega Master System
Original Sega-1000 game (not Master System - there is no SG-1000 section!)
The aim of the game is to collect ten flowers and bring them back to your house so that you can live happily ever after with your suitor.
You control a little girl who carries around with her three honey pots. Your garden is filled with rocks, a lake and flowers. Roaming around your garden are bears (remember the honey pots?) and bees.
The idea is for the girl to pick the flowers are exactly the right point - when they are flowering. Too early and it's wasted and too late it's already wilted. The growth of the flowers is represent nicely on screen.
The girl has to avoid the marauding bees and the nasty bears. Dropping a pot of honey will distract the bears from attacking you whilst you skip merrily abouts collecting the best of the flowers.
Once you have ten flowers, you take them back to the little house and you get rewards with a little romantic cut scene.
Yes, you guessed it - this game is aimed at the girly market. However, it's not really a bad game.
The developer Yuji Naka cut his teeth on this game later went on to develop Sonic the Hedgehog.
For the SG-1000, it's actually quite a pretty game. The limited graphics hardware is use very nicely and the game plays rather quite well. Despite ready to ridicule the game just on it's name, I was pleasantly surprised when I ended up playing for quite some time and even come back to it now and then.
