Sega Master System (3010-A)

The Sega Master System debuted in October 1986 in the United States and was originally manufactured by Tonka. It was known as the Mark III in Japan. The SMS contained a Ziglog Z-80 processing chip with 128 kilobits. The Sega Master System basic package cost $139.99 USD and came with the Hang On/Safari Hunt game cartridge, Phaser light gun, AC adapter, RF switch and two controllers. Besides cartridges that the games ran off of, they had cards about the size of a credit card that were cheaper than cartridges to manufacture, but they held less. There were only about a handful of these games released and often, they had no ending. On the early models of the system, a puzzle game was hardwired into the system and later, Hang On and Safari Hunt were. To access Snail Maze on a console that does not have Hang On/Safari Hunt on it press and hold up, 1, and 2 when the Sega screen appears. Please be advised that not all systems have the Snail Maze game. For consoles that have Hang On/Safari Hunt built in, simply press and hold up, 1, and 2 then turn on the system.
