Practically unplayable unfortunately because the ads appear to be broken. You go to start the game up and it runs an ad. No problem, I don't mind ad supported games, that's fine. Except the advert frame appears to be zoomed in or something meaning the close button is off the screen and you're stuck with no way to close it. The only way to get into the game is to restart the app with airplane mode on. Fine. Except you need to be online to save the game! I don't mind ads, but you need to fix this!

Like most mobile ports, the graphics and sound are pretty much on par and at a glance these are the coolest little games ever...then the gameplay starts and the "ah-ha, its a mobile game..." moment hits you. In fairness, Forever Sega's controls are okay for an android game, better than most, but they are still lacking. Gunstar Heroes is a bit frantic for the stilted controls of the touch screen, but it works alright as a coffee break game or something.

Its good, ads arent annnoying and the game is responsive with no input delay or slowdown, also just the overall emulation is good with everything looking like the original, but there is one problem which keeps it from being a perfect emulation and its the saving,its broken, it works at times but if an ad does not load it just doesnt work, please fix this. I dont have the time to play the game again. If the ad doesnt work default to saving the game not locking out someone from a basic feature.
