Was so excited to play this game and relive old memories. however the controls were so bad that it was basically unplayable. jump only works half the time If enemies come from both sides then forget about it, your game is finished. Just about impossible to escape without losing all your health. The enemies just beat the snot out of you and it's so frustrating I want to throw my phone across the room

This was an instant classic when it came out for the Sega Megadrive all those decades ago - while they can never replace the experience of playing on console in my book, Sega have still done a stand-up job of transference of the original onto smartphone. Playing this instantly took me back to my childhood & I am so excited that some of Sega's best games - Altered Beast especially - are now available & this draws me in each time just like it did when I first played it years ago!

The buttons are too small and far apart. An option to at least change their size or spacing would make the experience more enjoyable. None to mention the very real input delay makes playing this classic a bit of a chore.
