|1994-05||Mean Machines Sega #19||Review|| "Master System Review: Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine"
Single-page review of the Master System version. The writers describe it as a fair approximation of the Mega Drive version, and the best Master System puzzle game to date. They complain about the single-player mode being too easy, but it's made up for by the better two-player mode.
