IMHO this game takes the spiritual heritage of a "real classic", Montezuma's Revenge! ;)

I never played Montezuma's Revenge, but it does look similar. The visuals remind me a bit of Rick Dangerous, except it looks much less brutal.
I see there were Mega Drive and SNES versions in development, but they're unreleased from what I can tell. :(

Montezuma's Revenge was made in the distant 1984 by Parker Brothers for almost all home systems of the period (IIRC a Master System conversion was made some years later)... probably the first Rick Dangerous was inspired by this game! :)

The SNES version is out for about two years (Sydney Hunter and the Caverns of the Death) ;)

Cool, thanks! I'm a Mega Drive guy, but the SNES version looks awesome.
That said, I clicked the order link, and it led me to an "Oops! That page can't be found." page.
I was hoping for a downloadable ROM (I don't mind paying for it), but it seems they only sell physical copies. Oh well.

I tried the SNES game. I'm disappointed. :\
The graphics are good, but it is buggy, unpolished and lacks depth.

I see the SMS game is not the same. I hope it's better.
Edit: actually I see there's more than one Sydney Hunter on the Master System. The Sacred Tribe and the Caverns of Death. Both look pretty similar.

Actually there's only one Sydney Hunter on SMS, "The Sacred Tribe". As far as I know, SMS "The Caverns of Death" is still in a "alpha-stage" of development...
I like much Sydney Hunter Master System version! :)

Other two Master System "HB" games are fully emulated on FBN (powered by dink, with a little help by me)

To be honest, they are "Alex Kidd in Miracle World" hacks, but the "final result" is totally different from the source...
Galactic Boogers
Tower of Sorrow


Ehm, I almost forgot, SMS "Voyage a Sorceress' Vacation" has been updated to v1.03 ! ;)
