OK. So, SEGA is following suit with the other big publishers on the App Store and is now holding its own personal deal-a-thon. Now, until whenever, you can grab around 16 different SEGA games for 80 percent off the usual price or just 99 cents. And we’re not just talking about the pub’s stable of lackluster Genesis ports getting the cut here; those games are part of the deal, for sure, but there’s also a few native gems mixed in.

There are too many games to do a meaningful breakdown with, but here’s a list of what’s being offered and the prices of each:

Altered Beast -- $.99
Chu Chu Rocket! -- $.99
Ecco The Dolphin -- $.99
Golden Axe -- $.99
Gunstar Heroes -- $.99
Phantasy Star II -- $.99
SEGA Columns Deluxe -- $.99
Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master -- $.99
Shining Force -- $.99
Sonic The Hedgehog -- $2.99
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 -- $2.99
Sonic The Hedgehog 4 -- $2.99
Sonic Spinball -- $.99
Streets of Rage -- $.99
Super Monkey Ball -- $.99
Super Monkey Ball 2 -- $.99
Space Harrier -- $.99
Virtua Fighter 2 -- $.99

Not bad, eh? At this point, I’m not sure if we should say that the entire App Store is up for grabs, but it’s getting close as all these publishers start racing to the bottom. Who knew that Valentine’s Day would be giving us so much this year, eh?

    Everyone is branding this as a Valentines day sale. It's a Vday inspired sale, for sure. --> "V" is for "Verizon has the iPhone" --> new millions on appstore

    • Noah

      Yeah, LOL.... it's definitely for the hundreds of thousands of NEW iPhone owners, not because of Valentine's Day. Heh.

    Picked up Sonic 4, not willing to pay a tenner for the 360 versions, but a quid 50 is pretty good.

      The iphone verison is missing Casino Level: Row of cards, its replaced with a simple short get 10,000 points level, very boring, also the mine cart level is rather short compared to the same level on the xbox 360 version. Row of cards was the best level in the game and it didnt even make the cut. Spend the extra $$ and go with the xbox verison

    Chu Chu Rocket is a must buy.

    Sonic 4 is alright. Everything else is a pass.

  • HelperMonkey

    Shining Force is killer.  Great value.  And it's less impacted by Sega's crap emulator controls.

  • Morga

    So is it just me or are a bunch of these still showing as $2.99?

    • http://twitter.com/lpotr4 Luis Pangilinan

      Yep, still showing as $2.99. I'm afraid to hit the 'Buy' button and get dinged full price.

      • Rirath

        If you buy at $2.99, you'll pay $2.99.

    Nothing I want...or have currently.

    They should bring Sonic Colours to iOS. That's a *much* better game then the mediocre Sonic 4.

    crappy games like these should be free.. or just stay away from the App Store

    TO NOTE - BOTH versions of ChuChu rocket are $0.99. I couldn't help but pick up the iPad version at this point. I wasn't huge on it when I played it on a friends iPad a few months ago, but for a dollar... Damn, I'm sure if I don't love it, my kids will get a kick out of it.

    II've heard Ecco is really good as well, but I hate, hate virtual sticks.... But... maybe...

    Why can't they let go and drop the Sonics to .99 for one frigging day already. No, Spinball doesn't count.

    Sonic Colors ftw!

  • iCreep

    While we are on the subject of SEGA, they made a cool handheld game for the Gameboy Advance entitled "Baseball Advance." Just wondering if they would ever consider bringing a port of this title (or a similar game under a different name with the same pitching, batting, and fielding mechanics) to the iPhone. For anyone who knows this game, I think that it would work out well on the iPhone..........I have yet to find a baseball title on the iPhone that blows me away......just a thought (huh, SEGA, huh, huh)

  • Splendidham

    So I guess this a U.S only sale once again. Street fighter still showing up at 900yen...

  • Versagofrog

    Omg!!! I got Altered Beast and Shinobi III :D. Reminds me of good memoroes on the genesis.
