Mega Lo Mania (メガロマニア), called Mega-Lo-Mania on the European and Australian box, is a strategy game developed by Sensible Software for numerous systems including the Sega Mega Drive. In North America the Mega Drive version is known as Tyrants: Fight Through Time.

For the game's release in the UK, Virgin Games produced a maxi-single, "Mega-Lo-Mania (Goin' All the Way)", and an eponymous dance album to promote it.[9]
