Raze (Jun, 1991)
The Mega Drive is rather short of puzzle games, so Megapanel is a welcome addition to Tetris and Columns. The graphics may be simplistic, but the gameplay in two-player mode more than compensates. Fun and frustration at the same time, it's just what a good puzzle game should be.
Megapanel ist ein kniffliges und verdammt gutes Spiel, das sich angenehm von der Masse der Tetris-Clones abhebt.

Un bon jeu, mais qui ne vaut tout de même pas le vrai Tetris !

The meat of the game, though, is the Pin-Up mode. This mode has a definite anime feel to it. The objective here is to use the blocks to drop bombs on a picture of a woman that's been covered with tiles. The bombs you drop by clearing rows will cause the picture to be revealed, tile by tile. Some tiles are darker than the others, requiring more hits to be removed. The higher you go, the tougher it gets, as is the norm for most puzzle games. This mode is why I initially figured Megapanel didn't make it to the U.S. - it was rumored that the higher you went in levels, the more revealing the pics got until the women in them weren't wearing anything at all. Now, even though it's a fun game, I really suck at Megapanel. I've barely made a dent in it in all the time I've owned it. Therefore, I had no way of knowing whether or not this was true. Overall, Megapanel is a fun puzzle game that's different enough from the big name puzzlers to warrant a look - if you can find it, of course.
Power Play (Feb, 1991)
Eine Stunde Megapanel und wieder ist man dem Hirntod ein Stückchen näher. Man erwacht wie aus einer Trance und braucht erst ein paar Minuten, bevor man wieder voll da ist. An sich bietet Megapanel nichts Neues: Da fallen kleine Klötzchen, da muß man denken und schachteln und planen und dazu dudelt eine nette japanische Musik. Trotzdem nagelt Megapanel den Spieler geradezu vor den Schirm. Nicht gerade die Krönung der Denk/Tüftelspiele, aber durch die Zutatenmischung aus “Tetris“, “Block Hole“ und “Columns“ eine schmackhafte Angelegenheit, die man sich nicht entgehen lassen sollte.
