1. Your purchase will be done through WM's Magical Game Factory, the official online shop of WaterMelon. The international shipping is FREE. Items are shipped from either France or USA depending on stock and your address. Payments are made with PayPal or Credit/Debit card through PayPal.

2. What is the exact status of the game? The game programming is in its final days, look for the estimated release date on purchase section. There might be extra little delays but WM never fails to deliver! Thanks for your patience and support!
3. The Mega Drive/Genesis game cartridge is compatible with any original Mega Drive/Genesis game system (PAL or NTSC). The game is in English, Japanese, French, Spanish, Portuguese and German. In every version, the instruction manual is in English with smaller sections with Japanese, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.

4. Does the game run on any after-market, non-SEGA manufactured systems? No, after-market systems do not have the guts to run PAPRIUM, stick to the original hardware! No original Mega Drive or SEGA Genesis? Click here!

5. Does the box look like a original MegaDrive/Genesis box? Yes it does, it's the exact same style and size. The LIMITED EDITION is made of artboard instead of plastic while the CLASSIC EDITION is made of plastic!!!
6. What do you mean by Beat them up? Beat them up (also known as street brawler or beat them all) is a video game genre featuring hand-to-hand combat between the protagonist and an improbably large number of opponents. Gameplay consists of walking through a level, one section at a time, defeating a group of enemies before advancing to the next section. Find out some of the best known Beat ‘em up : Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Double Dragon, Golden Axe, River City Ransom, Turtles hyperstone heist, Two crude dudes, Battletoads, Guardian Heroes.

7. A limited production run, what does it mean? At WaterMelon, we always reward the early supporters, the "Limited Edition" is manufactured in true limited quantity.

8. When is the ROM release or STEAM port? PAPRIUM is tailor-made for the original Mega Drive / SEGA Genesis hardware and run at an uncompromized 60fps, a ROM release or STEAM port can't do it any justice.
