Sega’s Master System Games Catalogue

The image above is the front cover to a European pack-in catalogue for Sega’s Master System and, in my opinion, it does a wonderful job of promoting the system. Thanks to the preservation work carried out by the SMS Power website, you can view this and the remainder of the 4-pager in high-resolution here.

How many of the games can you name from the boxart pictures included? I could confidently identify 10 which isn’t bad for a system that I have never owned!

The inside of the catalogue states that the system has “The Ultimate Challenge in Games!” but in the battle for 8-bit console supremacy, I think Sega truly had the ultimate challenge in facing Nintendo’s NES.
