The Menacer came with an exclusive 6-game cartridge of mostly target shooting games. The games included on the cartridge are: Pest Control, Space Station Defender, Whack Ball, Front Line, Rockman's Zone, and Ready, Aim Tomatoes! -- the latter stars Sega franchise characters ToeJam and Earl. While most games utilize the light gun as a means to shoot down objects, Whack Ball actually utilized the Menacer as a mouse of sorts. All 6 of the games were conceptualized by Mac Senour, Producer on both the hardware and software. The Menacer works fully with the Sega Mega-CD, even though that system had, with the Konami Justifier, two different light guns developed for it.
Sega and third-party developers did not develop many games for the Menacer. The only compatible Mega Drive games were the 6-game cartridge, Body Count, and T2: The Arcade Game. All other Menacer games were for the Sega 32X and/or Sega Mega-CD.
The complete list of supported games is:
- Body Count (Sega Mega Drive)
- Corpse Killer (Sega Mega-CD, Sega Mega-CD 32X)
- Crime Patrol (Sega Mega-CD)
- Mad Dog McCree (Sega Mega-CD)
- Mad Dog II: The Lost Gold (Sega Mega-CD)
- Menacer 6-game cartridge (Sega Mega Drive)
- Monster Hunter (Unreleased)
- Snatcher (Sega Mega-CD)
- T2: The Arcade Game (Sega Mega Drive)
- Who Shot Johnny Rock? (Sega Mega-CD)
Radica Games has manufactured an dedicated console based on the Menacer. The unit has the games from the 6-game cartridge built into it.

Famous quotes containing the word games:
“Intelligence and war are games, perhaps the only meaningful games left. If any player becomes too proficient, the game is threatened with termination.”
—William Burroughs (b. 1914)
“At the age of twelve I was finding the world too small: it appeared to me like a dull, trim back garden, in which only trivial games could be played.”
—Elizabeth Bowen (18991973)
“In 1600 the specialization of games and pastimes did not extend beyond infancy; after the age of three or four it decreased and disappeared. From then on the child played the same games as the adult, either with other children or with adults. . . . Conversely, adults used to play games which today only children play.”
—Philippe Ariés (20th century)
