I really love that sega is putting in the effort to bring back their classics for the mobile platform. For me, somebody who didn't get to experience them back in the day, its incredibly fun to explore all these classic titles. This one in particular is a very fascinating and wonderfully crafted platformer. Unique from anything I've really ever played. The soundtrack is amazingly catchy and the pixel art is pretty great. My only wish is that sega would put more effort into adapting controls for touchscreen. The dpad and buttons system just don't hold up for touch screen. The way this game is played makes the dpad especially frustrating to use. Well, at least they added a save feature.
I have played all of the SEGA Forever line and the emulation has improved immensely. I love the sounds and visuals as they look as they should. However, with this title and basically all the others the touch controls are a bit finicky as I am sure you have heard. I would be absolutely appeased if the HID controller support issue in which only the face buttons register but not the analog or D-Pad was remedied, so we can play with the precision these games are designed for. Do this and they will be perfect.
Horrible controller support, making it unplayable for me. Does not recognize the dpad or analog stick. Reply to SEGA: Listed where?? I have no problem playing Sonic with the same controller. This game really needs to be updated.
This game is very underrated. I grew up during the 16-bit era and never even heard of it, which is a shame. Playing this can be a tad clunky on a touch screen though, unfortunately.
It won't let me play. This is my all-time favorite game and I can't play it. Every time I load it takes forever and then crashes and Starts over to crash again and keeps repeating. I'm done. I'm not even waiting for an update. If I wanna play that bad ill get on my laptop. Worst experience ever
I guess that this game must have been just about playable with a proper controller, but on a phone touchscreen...? Not really. It's a real shame, because it's beautiful to look at. One other thing I'd add is that black borders would be preferable to the filled ones (less distracting) - maybe there's an option for that, but I didn't see it. Moto G5 Plus.
