It got off to a rocky start, but things are looking up for Apple’s MFi controller platform. We’re starting to see more (and cheaper) controller options become available for iOS devices, and developers are adding MFi support to their games daily.
Case in point, Sega just updated 2 of its most popular Sonic iOS titles with MFi controller support. Now in addition to Sonic the Hedgehog 2, both the original Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic CD are compatible with the new breed of gamepads… Read More
Rather unexpectedly and with little fanfare, games maker Sega has released a brand new title on the App Store. Called Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, the game is actually the official iOS port of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for consoles and part of its 2013 winter release schedule.
If you’ve played Mario-like kart racing games such as Rovio’s Angry Birds Go!, you should feel right at home in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. A pared down version of Transformed on consoles, the game sports a brand new World Tour mode designed specifically for mobile, with multiplayer both locally and online for up to four players… Read More
Somewhere in the midsts of all of the iOS 7 jailbreak excitement, we forgot to mention that Sega has followed in the footsteps of other game publishers and developers and has placed a number of its popular iOS titles on sale for the holidays.
This includes Sonic, Sonic 2 and Sonic CD—games which have been recently remastered by the talented Christian Whitehead that now feature better graphics and faster frame rates than their originals—as well as a handful of other Sonic titles… Read More
First announced in October, the free update sees the game rebuilt by Christian Whitehead and Simon Thomley— the same guys who did the first Sonic the Hedgehog iOS game remaster—with better graphics, FPS and much more… Read More
Sega’s Sonic games for the iPhone and iPad are as popular as on any other platform and the games maker has certainly given its best issuing updates with new levels and discounting the Sonic games on the App Store.
Sega of America on Monday announced its 2013 winter iOS lineup, including a remastered version of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and a brand new game called Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing: Transformed. I’ve included detailed information above the fold… Read More
If you’re anything like me, you’re a heavy gamer who plays tons of games on your iDevice – and on a pretty much regular basis, too (or at least when the time schedule permits).
That’s why I’ll only make a passing mention of productivity deals like Readdle’s premium Calendars+ going free for a limited time.
If that fell on deaf ears with you, don’t despair – iDB has you covered as games maker Sega has slashed all its Sonic games on the App Store to just 99 cents.
The promotion includes the original Sonic The Hedgehog along with the second and fourth installment, as well as Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing and Sonic CD. Jump past the fold for quick details… Read More
SEGA has been known to put its iOS apps on sale every once in a while, and this weekend is one such occasion, with three of the Japanese company’s games having a couple of dollars slashed from their App Store price.
The three available games have been around for a while, but if you’ve not picked them up yet, or have perhaps been on the fence about picking them up at their normal price, then now’s the time to bite the bullet and get the credit card out.
So which games are included in the sale? Well, if you’re into some of SEGA’s classics, then you’re going to love the games Sega has included in its promotion… Read More
Originally released as an arcade machine way back in 1987, Sega’s high-adrenaline jet fighter action, After Burner Climax, has made a jump to the iPhone and iPad (it’s also coming soon to Android). The game puts you in the cockpit of the F-14D Super Tomcat, F-15E Strike Eagle or F/A-18E Super Hornet, each customizable with four paint jobs (standard paint, camouflage, special paint and low visibility).
Load your aircraft with a bunch of high-tech weapons, take off into the skies and barrel through twenty different landscapes – like volcanoes, jungles, ice caps and more. Of course, the game’s really just an excuse for a bunch of orange explosions and total mayhem.
Nevertheless, fans of some heart-pounding action (gee, I sound like a PR bunny) should consider giving After Burner Climax a try… Read More
Jet Set Radio first popped up back in 2000 for the Dreamcast console. I didn’t play it then, but when its sequel, Jet Set Radio Future, came bundled with my original Xbox, I got hooked. So I was actually pretty excited to hear that Sega had ported the game to iOS this week… Read More
Looking for a way to kill the inevitable holiday boredom this weekend? Why not try downloading a few new iOS games?

Keep reading to see some of our favorite deals… Read More
Sega, a console maker turned games developer, is pretty active on the iOS platform. It’s been churning out various episodes of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and recently launched its popular Crazy Taxi game on the iPhone. Today, Sega released a brand new iOS game set in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. Called Sonic Jump, it’s Sega’s first iOS-only game.
As the name suggests, Sonic Jump has your charming hedgehog character jumping up the platforms, collecting coins, avoiding enemies, squaring off against Dr. Eggman and a whole bunch more. It should be instantly familiar to anyone who has played platform jumpers like Doodle Jump. Fans of Sega games will no doubt feel right at home.
Sonic Jump runs natively on both the iPhone and iPad and is provided as a universal binary setting you back two bucks. A few screenies, more info and a trailer can be found past the fold… Read More
A few days ago, Sega announced that it would be bringing its popular Crazy Taxi title to the iOS platform. It posted a short video of gameplay footage, and said that its release date would be sometime in October.
Well it looks like “sometime in October” meant “later this week,” because Crazy Taxi showed up in the App Store this morning. Now you can play the classic open-world driver on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch… Read More
Fans of the popular Sonic franchise will be happy to hear that Sega has just finished porting over another new title to iOS featuring the little blue hedgehog. Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II is now available in the App Store.
This is the fifth Sonic title that Sega has released on Apple’s mobile platform, and it doesn’t disappoint. The game features an all-new graphics engine, fit for a Retina display, updated physics, and oh yeah, Tails is back… Read More
Those of us old enough to remember the Sega CD, or Mega CD (depending on where you happen to live), will readily admit that it holds a special place in our hearts. The Sega CD was arguably ahead of its time, and eventually died off with the arrival of competing products from Nintendo and Sony, not to mention Sega’s own Saturn.
Before it was killed, the Sega CD did survive long enough to give us one of the better Sonic games to come to any platform since the original release.
With that in mind, I can perhaps be forgiven for squealing like a schoolgirl when I say that Sega is bringing Sonic CD to iOS… Read More
