Rastan was released for the Game Gear in Japan. However, unlike most other Game Gear games, it was a straight port of the Master System version, running not in a letterbox format, but instead using the GG's Master System compatibility mode, resulting in a fuzzy screen with small sprites which is difficult to render in screenshots.
