Ishido: The Way of Stones is an unlicensed Sega Mega Drive puzzle game developed and published by Accolade. A port of the titular 1990 Publishing International computer game Ishido: The Way of Stones, it was released exclusively in the United States later that year, and is most known for being one of few commercially-released Sega Mega Drive games to fail the system's TradeMark Security System test (refusing to operate with anything but the earliest Mega Drive hardware.)

Gameplay

The goal of the game is simple: move tiles from the space on the top right corner (by simply moving the cursor on top of the tile with the D-pad without hitting any other buttons, then moving the cursor back onto the board) and placing the tile (with A) next to another tile with the same color or shape. B cycles between tile graphic sets. C opens a menu with options.
