SEGA’s Sprite Scaling Wizardry in Arcade Games of the 1990s

While scanning my “Medium article ideas” document, feeling blah and not really wanting to do any of them, I realized I had a game minimized to my system tray. It’s an arcade game, emulated in M.A.M.E (**M**ulti **A**rcade **M**achine **E**mulator) so it doesn’t allow pausing.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with it. Most of the arcade games I’m nostalgic for are from the 1990s, when I was around the right age that my brain was put together enough to appreciate them and become curious about the technology behind their operation.
