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

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
