Spin Master, known in Japan as Miracle Adventure, is a platformer game released in 1993 by Data East for the Neo Geo, being their first game for the platform. The game was later released on the Wii Virtual Console in 2010.
This game draws heavily from Joe & Mac, another Data East game, both on gameplay and graphical style. It also sees the return of the Mad Doctor, a recurring villain from Data East's games who had appeared previously on Tumble Pop and Diet Go Go and also appears in Joe & Mac Returns.
Spin Master received a semi-sequel for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis called Dashin' Desperadoes.
The story follows Johnny and Tom, two treasure hunters who have found an ancient treasure map. Before they can search for the treasure, however, their home is ransacked by the Mad Doctor, who steals the map and kidnaps their friend Mary. The two now must travel the world to defeat the Mad Doctor, rescue Mary and retrieve the map.
Spin Master is a action-oriented platformer game, with the A button used for attacking and B button for jumping. You begin a life with a short range yo-yo as your weapon, but you can collect various other weapons along the way. By holding the A button you can store energy to use a stronger attack. The C button is used to unleash a smart bomb which hits all enemies on screen, with it's effects varying depending on the current weapon equipped. Enemies can also be defeated by jumping on them.
