Remember a pixelated Mario jumping around Mushroom Kingdom to save a kidnapped princess? Or the (awful) sounds from your motherboard speaker when the Prince of Persia gets killed by the evil Wazir? Modern AAA titles with 4K visuals, 4x FSAA, Anisotropic filtering and ambient occlusion have changed the way we perceive games, but retro games sure had great gameplay and mechanics. It looks like Sega wants to give gamers a blast from the past, because they have just announced the availability of Sega Genesis classics on iOS and Android. The Sega Forever collection comes with five free titles that have imprinted fond memories for gamers of the bygone era. 

The initial launch includes classics such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star II, Comix Zone, Kid Chameleon, and Altered Beast. The titles are free to download and are ad-supported but the ads can be removed via in-app purchases for $2 per title. The iPhone and iPad versions even come with iMessage stickers for that retro feel.

The company has already launched the fan favorite Crazy Taxi last month and plans to add more classic games to the Forever collection. The Sega Forever collection will be available for download worldwide, starting with Asia, from June 22nd.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
