Write-up about the Sega Master System Architecture

SMS Power user Flip (Rodrigo Copetti) has been working on a full analysis of the Sega Master System:

This is both an archival piece, as well as an excellent source of information for anyone looking to develop on the SMS platform.  While some games of that era haven’t aged very well (and others have received modern ports), there are absolutely a large library of games worth checking out.  My favorites from the Sega Master System were always ones that provided unique experiences, such as the 3D games like Maze Hunter, Out Run and Space Harrier.
