Retro games are one of the most nostalgic things ever - thanks to the Sega Forever collection, they are now available on Android. Sega Forever is ad-supported, which can be turned off by paying $ 2 per game. In return, you get the opportunity to save the passage in the cloud storage ..
This article compiles the best classic games from the Sega Forever collection that launched in June 2017. The developers have made it available for Android and iOS devices. At the time of this writing, the collection consisted of 20 games, some of which are described below.
Sonic the Hedgehog
The first version of Sonic was released in 1991 and is now available for Android and iOS. This blue hedgehog has become the symbol of Sega. New to Sonic games? They are pretty straightforward: you have to rush through each of the seven levels, collecting rings and destroying enemies along the way..
The mobile optimized 60 FPS version has some pretty tricky controls. But the good news is that when you use an additional controller, everything becomes much more convenient. You can pass the levels not only by Sonic, but also by the malicious Knuckles or the fox Tails.
Sonic the Hedgehog Classic is far from the only Sonic game available in the Sega Forever collection. Sonic CD Classic is worth a try, among others..
Comix zone classic
Comix Zone is an arcade action game for martial arts fans that was released in 1995. The plot of the game is simple: you have to become a rock musician and artist named Sketch Turner, get into a comic book drawn by him himself and take part in a battle with painted enemies to save the Earth from the invasion of evil aliens.
The main task is to defeat the supervillain Mortus, who managed to escape from the comic book into the real world, and now he is now and then finishing up enemies for Sketch. The game implements some elements of the adventure genre, the player can collect various items necessary to inflict damage on enemies and perform other tasks. The hero is helped by his pet rat named Roadkill.

Streets of Rage Classic
Game Streets of Rage Classic was released in 1991 and became an instant classic. In the story, you play the role of one of three police officers who use martial arts to clear the streets of the city from criminals. The main goal is to defeat the mysterious Mr. X, who is at the head of the local criminals.
Each character has its own characteristics and special skills. The multiplayer version of the passage allows you to team up with friends via Wi-Fi and fight bosses together.
Golden ax classic
Successfully ported from an arcade machine, Golden Ax made a splash among Sega owners. This game from the distant 1989 allows you to choose one of three characters to go to free Yuri from the enemy army. You can transform into a barbarian, gnome or amazon, each of which has its own combat and magical features.
Golden Ax is one of the best arcade games of the 1980s. It was created by designer Makodo Uchida, also known for his work on Altered Beast. The scenario is realized in the fantasy style with a touch of medieval atmosphere. The main enemy is the tyrant Deathbringer, who took possession of the artifact "Golden Ax" (Golden Ax, by the way, is exactly what is translated).
Kid chameleon classic
Kid Chameleon is a famous platformer from 1992 with over 100 stages with hidden areas to explore. This is a fun classic project that deserves attention from modern gamers.
The main task is to get to the Heady Metal boss in the form of a flying head, in which our hero will be helped by magical masks that give unique abilities. In them you can turn into an invincible warrior, a flying superhero or a real living tank, and also try yourself in the role of a medieval knight, assassin or maniac with an ax.
Crazy Taxi Classic
Released in 1999, Crazy Taxi is one of the most successful car simulation games ever. The open world allows you to explore all corners of the city in search of earnings. Your goal is to pick up as many passengers as possible and quickly deliver them to their destination. Various bonuses significantly increase profits, but the main key to success is competent driving.
Like the original Dreamcast version, there are arcade and time trial modes. An added bonus is the excellent music from The Offspring and Bad Religion. The on-screen controls work well enough, although we advise you to consider connecting an external controller via Bluetooth for a more comfortable experience.
Super monkey ball
Imagine that you place a monkey in a large transparent ball, and then try to ride it through a complex maze and collect bananas along the way. This is the game plot of Super Monkey Ball . The time to complete the maze is limited. At first glance, this kind of entertainment seems uninteresting, but this game refutes this opinion, because you get the opportunity to go through 125 labyrinths with a gradual complication.
The game was first introduced in 2001 as a banana-shaped arcade machine. These fruits must be collected during the passage of the maze in order to earn points. In 2010, a version for mobile platforms appeared. The re-released version allows you to play one of four monkeys: AyAi, MiMi, Baby, and GonGon.
The Revenge of Shinobi Classic
The criminal community Neo Zeed kills your mentor and kidnaps the bride. In the role of the main character Joe Musashi, you have to save your beloved and take revenge on the bad guys, and for this you will have to travel the world and fight numerous opponents using the art of "ninjutsu".
The Revenge of Shinobi, released in 1989, is regarded by many gamers as one of the best games for the Sega Mega Drive. It's a classic side scrolling platformer with colorful graphics and action-packed gameplay. The walkthrough becomes more interesting thanks to various special fighting techniques, some of which can be used up to four times at each level. And in order to keep enemies away from you, throw shurikens at them.
Altered beast classic
One of the main features of the game Altered Beast , which was released in 1988, is the transformation of the hero into different creatures as you progress. Fight enemies as a wolf, dragon, bear and tiger. Collect mystical balls to get additional abilities.
Your task is to break into the underworld of the dead and defeat Hades himself there. He kidnapped Athena, daughter of Zeus, but the gods' rules prevent them from fighting each other. Therefore, Zeus resurrects the fallen warrior and instructs him to return Athena to Olympus. To do this, you will have to defeat entire hordes of demons and all kinds of undead.
Space harrier ii
This sequel to the original Space Harrier was released in 1988 and was originally intended for arcade machines. 30 years after its release, this project continues to interest gamers.
The rail shooter provides some freedom of movement, so run, jump and fly to dodge enemies. At the same time pour fire on them from the cannon attached to the arm, which can also be used as a jet engine for jumping.
The third-person view looks rather unusual for a 1988 project, but the fast pace of the game leaves no time for thought: new enemies appear all the time, so you have to focus on surviving. There are challenging bosses at the end of each level. In total, there are 12 levels, each with its own characteristics. At some levels, the bosses are quite simple, while others are much more difficult to defeat.
