Castlevania Bloodlines is one of my favorite games, John Morris is such a badass. I've played it thousands of times. I also got @Check into it, now it's one of his favorite games. It's one of the CVs I've beat without dying once, along with Castlevania Chronicles. The graphics, gameplay, music, are all great. It's only 6 stages, but they're packed with fun and replay-ability. It's one of those games you can quickly pop in, and play through in about a couple hours.

I didn't want to triple post but yes Bloodlines has gotta be a top 5 games easy on the Genesis and on par with the best of the classic Castlevania's. It's very surprising how good the music is considering the Genesis is notorious for cringy ear piercing music.

Speaking of Castlevania and music in videogames, I just came across this video:

Some of it's a little heavy into the whole Music Theory aspect, but even if you don't know the ins and outs of music theory it's still pretty interesting.
