Sega may not be in the console race anymore, the company still keeps their classic library of games relevant by making them available on modern systems. Whether it’s through Steam, PlayStation or Xbox, the games are highly accessible when it comes to playing your favourite Sega games. Thanks to this, the Sega Forever program was made and is an incentive by Sega to offer their best games onto modern smartphones, and they’re doing more than just simply porting them to the small screen.
Through Sega Forever, Sega has brought in classic games from the Sega Genesis, Sega CD, and Dreamcast to IOS and Android systems. Smartphone users can readily download full versions of games like Sonic The Hedgehog, Crazy Taxi, and Super Monkey Ball right now for free. There are in-game ads and players can pay a fee to get rid of them.
With the new update, comes a number of quality of life improvements to the game. The first being a Rewind button, letting you rewind to the past 15 seconds of game time, perfect for when you accidentally miss a jump in Sonic The Hedgehog. This is a common feature added on retro game collections and can even be seen on the NES and SNES Classics. The difference is that there is a 30 second limit between each Rewind, keeping players from spamming it too often.
Another good feature being added is haptic feedback, which gives more precision and control to their games. Haptic feedback is a common feature on mobile phones these days, and it's cool to see Sega update their games to include it. Other features added are remappable buttons and new visual filter options.
So to those who have games under the Sega Forever collection, you should update your games now! Mind you that you have to update each game individually, so be aware of that.
