Works fine with the iPhone 5, controls are a bit of getting used to but that's to be expected playing it on a touch screen. A good buy though.

Awesome! (2.0)

Like others have mentioned, it closes as soon as I select 'New Game'. Do us a favour and sort this out, we don't want the money we payed for this to be wasted.

Worth the money (1.0)

Update - this no longer works. Rubbish. Was amazed to see this on here. I would have thought that sega would release plenty other games first (SOR2 and Sonic 3 please?!). So it was a pleasant surprise of finding this, and has given me a few good hours of nostalgia. Onscreen controls do get in the way on the busier levels... Which is pretty much all of them! I found myself pressing down an awful lot by accident. Think this probably kills the replay value a little for me, as I can imagine the harder difficulty settings being nearly impossible because of this. Still worth the money and good for a blast. Gamers who remember it from first time around will get a lot more out of it than these young folk! Quite nice to think that this game was pushing the megadrive to it's limit 17 years ago, and now it's being handled with ease by a mobile phone... Talking of classic megadrive shoot em ups... Thunderforce 4 anyone? :-) c'mon sega... You can obviously turn out megadrive games on the iPhone really easily! More please!!

It does not work can somebody help me (1.0)

I downloaded this game and tried to start a new game but it wouldn't start, it just cuts out back to the phone menu, disappointing to say I used to play this game as a kid, would have been nice to play it again.
