Crystal's Pony Tale is a children's action-adventure game developed and published by Sega for the Mega Drive/Genesis in 1994. The game features the adventures of protagonist Crystal Pony, who journeys to rescue her friends and stop an evil witch. It was created in hopes to attract little girls to the platform.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

The game has seven areas, each holding multiple secrets.[2] There are three difficulties - easy, medium, and hard. There is classical music featured throughout the game; especially Brahms' 4th Symphony.

Plot[edit]

The evil Storm Witch has cast a spell that imprisoned Crystal Pony's friends in her castle in order to rule the Ponyland. The player's role is to collect crystals to free the ponies and defeat the witch once and for all, after which the ponies can live, finally, "happily ever after."

Reception[edit]

Game Developer reported the game "was criticized for featuring too much pink in its graphics."[3] According to Sega Pro, a Sega Master System version was cancelled due to the game's failure.[citation needed]
