Following this story today of the Sega Forever game releases has been pretty hilarious, as every time I finish writing about the last thing that happened, something else happens. The timeline has been as fast paced as an episode of 24, with the games being announced this morning, rolling out to an (incredibly brief) soft launch in the Philippines, and now finally just being available in the US App Store. So, if you were following our last story hoping you don't have to wait too long for the games to be available to download in your country, well, the supremely brief wait is over. Also, it'd seem that the old games did get updated, they were just using a different iTunes ID's in the Philippines.

Here's all the Sega Forever games you can download right now (all the games are free, AppShopper data may not be up to date just yet):

  • Sonic the Hedgehog [Free]
  • Altered Beast [Free]
  • Phantasy Star II [Free]
  • Kid Chameleon [Free]
  • Comix Zone [Free]

Give 'em a shot and let us know what you think.

    Has anyone managed to use the restore purchase option in Sonic 1? It just sits there displaying "Please wait" for me until it times out.

  • vic_viper_001

    Is it safe to update Sonic, or did Sega screw it up and throw in ads for the people who already paid?

  • eufeion

    Anyone having really bad delay & lag on these games? I'm in an iPad mini 2 an it's really bad on all them making them unplayable

  • Awooga

    They've been ported using unity, so the emulation is not optimised for newer devices. Hence why they are running so bad and are unplayable.
