Going to need an iOS 11 update on most of the games
This game was awesome, reminds me of the arcade game from back then! But since I had updated my phone the game started slowing down on iOS 11 compared to iOS 10 and this wasn’t the only game either affected by it. Giving it 5 stars because it’s a cool game and hope more retro titles (streets of rage, toejam and earl, etc.) comes to mobile.
Great great. ALL of SEGA Forever
All of the SF releases have been great. I am looking forward to seeing 32 and 128 bit generation releases! Looking forward to the entire Virtua (model 1, 2 and 3) series games, whether arcade, Saturn or Dreamcast conversion. Thank you, SEGA
Thank you, maybe add this
Add gain ground and 2 player on it.
Toe jam and earl
Please keep these classics coming bring us. Bubsy the cat and shining forces
Remember this one!
So many memories! Love this game
So happy to SEGA for keeping these games alive. Here's some other ones Revenge of Shinobi Road Rash Series Altered Beast Strider Vectorman Columns Comic Zone Streets of Rage Series Aladdin World of Illusion Budokan
Good Old Arcade
Captures the feel of the arcade including great graphics and a BOSS Title cart.
Good price point sets this emulation up good. Really love old sega games. The controls are a bit of a pain and a fast paced game like this is s bit hard on a touch but at .99 really a must have for retro game fans. But one reviewer hit the nail on the head . Please oh please bring Transbot onto my touch! And my wii on the virtual console . Transbot is one of the greatest games of all time. And black belt. Really most all of Sega master system games. The master system remains one of my favorite systems of all time. I would pay top $ for transbot I don't care how much it is us transbot fans and their is lots of us would flip out. So please please please let's see that soon.
Needs to be on Apple TV
Great retro game. But this needs to be played with a controller as well.
Wasn't good to begin with. Give us Space Harrier 1!
This game was a sucker launch game for the Genesis. You got excited cause the original arcade was great with a rock solid port on the Sega Master System. New system, new Space Harrier? Of course I'll buy it. All the bad controls and poor frame rate are part of the original not the port. How's about a remake? Or even a reboot?
Music crackles and skips. Framerate is terrible and the game stutters and slows down every few seconds. I'm a huge fan of the original Sega Genesis game and this doesn't even come close to feeling like the original. Even my 2010 version on iPod Touch plays better than this, and I'm using a 2017 iPad. Hope one day they use a better emulator for these games because this one has to be the worst so far.
Rating not for actual game, of course...
Why do I have to restore my purchase every time I play this game? I didn’t have to do it before this Sega Forever thing started. As for the actual game-it’s great, being Space Harrier and all.

Horrible play control! Not worth the time to download.
Massive lag and no turbo fire on the IPhone XS Max. I guess the iPhone isn’t powerful enough to emulate the game. Rofl.
