Super Monaco GP (スーパーモナコGP) for the Sega Master System and Sega Game Gear is a loose adaption of the 1989 arcade game, Super Monaco GP. The Game Gear version was released as a launch title for the system.

Gameplay

On Sega's 8-bit consoles, Super Monaco GP takes the form of a third-person racing game, playing more similarly to the older World Grand Prix than the arcade version of the game. Only two cars are ever on the course at one time (the Master System version being permanently in split-screen mode), meaning the mechanic of racing against an entire field of other drivers, aiming to get above a certain position threshold is scrapped. In its place, cars can be tuned with different bodywork and tires, and a two-player option is available.

Tracks are also played in a different order than other versions of the game.
