Safari Hunt is a video game developed and manufactured by Sega for their Sega Master System in 1986, specifically as a built-in game in version 2.4 of the Master System BIOS. Safari Hunt was not released as a standalone game, though it was made available in the compilations Hang On & Safari Hunt and Marksman Shooting / Trap Shooting / Safari Hunt. It is a light-gun shooter, and so requires the official peripheral the Light Phaser.


The game requires the player to shoot at animals in, as its title suggests, a simulated safari hunt. Safari Hunt has three levels, each with various animals. The player must score a certain amount of points, by shooting the animals with a limited number of bullets, to progress to the next level. These three levels repeat, with the level number incrementing after each, until level 69 whose required score is 1 million points. Upon reaching this figure, the player is told that s/he has reached the end of the game, and receives a "Game Over" screen.
