The inside of the box, containing the console, cables, and controllers. All of these are reminiscent of the Zone 60.

Sega Reactor (or Sega Mega Drive Reactor) is a system made by JungleTac (also called JungleSoft) and ATgames with licensing from Sega to make a console that plays Sega Genesis games.

Comparing and Contrasting to the Zone 60

The console's case, controllers, and even the shape of the box were reused from the Zone 60. The manual also looks similar to a Zone Console manual. Notably, the AV cables had stereo sound, and the Power Adapter was a large brick. The buttons were also changed. Zone 60 had A on left, B on bottom, X (Turbo A) on top, and Y (Turbo B) on the bottom. With this system, the buttons were rotated counterclockwise, meaning A was on bottom, B was on right, X was on left, and Y was on top (This layout matches the button layout for X-Box systems.

Reactor also has shoulder buttons (C for left, Z for right), which Zone 60 lacks. The Reactor controller lacked vibration, which Zone 60 had. The Reactor Controller also lacks the hole for accessories, which Zone 60 had. Reactor does not have any snap-on accessories so this makes sense. The strap is grey on Reactor, and on Zone 60 is was black.

Zone601

Zone 60 contents for comparison. Notice the various similarities.

All of these reasons that the consoles had simalar features is because the European prototype of the system, the Zone Sega, is basically the same thing. JungleTac made the Zone 60, so they probably just decided to reuse Zone 60 cases, as well as Zone 40 and Zone Mini games.

Why it sucks / Why it flopped

  1. The sound chip for the system was messed up (Similarly to how ATgames Sega Genesis has messed up sound).
  2. The frame rate was also a little bit slower than the original.
  3. There was a delay (partially due to the wireless controllers using infrared technology, and also due to the emulation of the console.
  4. It reused games from other bad systems (Zone 40, Zone Mini, and ATgames Sega Genesis) which meant this system had no real purpose.
