Welcome to Cover Art! A section of the site where we look at a retro video game’s box cover art and briefly discuss it’s gameplay and legacy.
Shadowrun is a cyberpunk themed RPG developed by BlueSky Software, based on the tabletop RPG by FASA. It was released for the Sega Genesis in 1994. It’s worth noting that although it is based in the Shadowrun world, it is a different game than the SNES Shadowrun.
Shadowrun is a cool game. It’s an open world RPG and while the graphics aren’t great, they’re not bad. Gameplay is simple enough with a functional lock on system for it’s real time combat. There’s also the awesome looking Matrix mode which offered some mini games. Definitely a great game for the Genesis.
