Ristar is a platform game by Sega released late in the Mega Drive/Genesis life span. The protagonist Ristar, a literal shooting star, is on a mission to rescue his father from the space pirate Greedy. To do this, Ristar uses his elastic arms to grab onto enemies and obstacles.

Initially for the Genesis/Mega Drive, Ristar was later ported to many compilations, such as Sonic Mega Collection, Sega Genesis Collection, and Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.

Completion Requirements[]

  • Complete the game.
  • Collect all 12 treasures by beating all of the bonus stages.
  • Do so on Hard mode.

Master Run Ideas[]

  • Beat Super mode (the hardest difficulty accessible via cheat code. You are only given one hit point.)
  • Speed Run
  • No Damage Run (Beat Super mode without dying once)


Be forewarned that if you let time run out in a bonus stage, you cannot try again, making 100% completion impossible.
